Player Notes

  • Craft with drops: Trinity Scepter
  •  Along with The Forgotten Knight and Forgotten Judge, it could be presumed that these are The Three. My how they've fallen...
  • Similar to the boss of the Salt Alkymancery, the Forgotten King is, in fact, a trio of bosses at one time. It is a bit daunting at first glance, but in all honesty, it isn't too terrible, as their health bars tend to drop quickly due to the split between the three.
  • The first, most important thing to do in this fight? KILL THE JUDGE. The King and Knight both telegraph their moves rather well, and you can easily dodge out of their way, even when fat-rolling in Heavy armor. The main reason you want to take out the Judge is because of the extreme annoyance factor of her Rune Machinegun. If you get caught in the spray, you're going to lose a lot of HP, and more than likely be stun-locked for either the King or Knight to splatter (and most likely kill) you. With the Judge's sniping out of the way, the other two should not be much of a problem, as long as you dodge well. She is vulnerable to Arcane slash attacks.
  • Fire is highly effective on the three here, as is just about every other element, aside from poison. You have a way to imbue your weapon with one of these? Have at it and you'll take them out even faster!
  • It's VERY important to come visit this boss, as you'll find two Shimmering Pearls: One on the way down the vertical shaft with the candles guiding the path, and the other at the end shortly after you kill the boss. As optional as these guys may be, finding them will at least net you the possibility of alchemizing a Class 5 weapon, and two if you kill them. Just some food for thought...
  • His name is King Ericho the Austere.
  • Simple yet effective strategy. First; equip holy resistant armor, predator armor works. Second: your first loadout should be a greatsword (Caserjaw great sword works well.) and the arcane damage charm. Relentlessly assault the judge. The other two should leap at you when you walk in, giving you time to blitz her down. After this, switch to layout two: Great Hammer and Impen Charm. Depending on your luck and spacing, the two remaining will either both leap at you at once, allowing you to hit both. That can be baited out by running away. If that doesn't work, simply just get one hit in and dodge the other.

The Forgotten Knight is an optional Boss in Salt and Sanctuary. He is part of the group battle of The Forgotten King.



A giant, well-armored undead creature. It bears a greatsword and some armor, but it's almost tragically clumsy with both, like it was once a god of sorts, but has since been reduced to a shambling shadow of its former self."

      I have a theory about this boss.
      It is that the reason why they are forgotten is not because people don't believe in them (we can tell from dialogue and other boss descriptions that it is a well followed religion) it is because these are the people the religion is based on. As in the religion has grandized their lives and created so many stories about them that people have forgotten that they were real people, which is why we find them in such a state and so ungodly as they were never gods to begin with just people who other people believed were gods

        • A rather annoying fight in NG+13 Jul 2016 02:11  

          Still perfectly beatable and no real threat, but it makes for a fairly draining experience since for me it involves a good ten to fifteen minutes or so of turtling up behind Umbral Aegis and chipping away at the Judge in the rare moments she's both in range and the other two will let me breathe for two seconds.

          • forgotten king strategy25 May 2016 10:06  

            the ideal way to deal with this fight is to take out the judge as soon as possible sword +stained page kills him quickly<br/>after that its to deal with both the king and knight by waiting until they do there leap attack where they are vulnerable to 2-3 hits earthshatter + pitchfire dispatches them quickly

            • Known Knight bug16 Apr 2016 16:48  

              The Forgotten knight has a jumping attack, but through vigorous testing, I've found that there is no actual hitbox on that attack. I'm going to assume that currently, it is a bug. I would like confirmation from anyone else who can reproduce the bug.

              • Passage closed help11 Apr 2016 12:11  

                I messed up somewhere , the gate on the left side of the Crypt of Dead Gods's sanctuary is still closed for me and I have no clue how to get to that lever on the other side ... Does anybody know of a way to get there ?

                • Oi Vey!!!!31 Mar 2016 21:40  

                  My platforming skills are a bit rusty. I couldn't even make it to the Sanctuary of Sky and Fire. Ugh. It's like you need to be a Mario expert to make it to the Forgotten King.

                  • Their damage...28 Mar 2016 13:48  

                    ...is it meant to be so low? I first fought them around L45 with light armor and both the Knight and King could only do maybe 10% of my HP with their strongest hits unblocked. Even the Judge's full cast only did about 50%. It just seems strange such a late boss is so fragile but ALSO does such low damage.

                    • The run-up24 Mar 2016 16:21  

                      The Run up to these guys is difficult since the entrance is someone hidden. When you start the drop down platforming segments don't pay attention to the candles but rather the background lights (candle shrine things in the background). Those guide you to the next platform.

                      • run back20 Mar 2016 16:30  

                        Is there a sanctuary/shrine after you do the horrible platforming just to run back to this boss? I've died 3 times as much on the run back as the actual boss fight. I feel like if there's no way to shorten the run back to re-attempt this boss, it's false difficulty. Only thing I can think of that comes close to this is the run back to Ancient Dragon in DS 2
