Oathbreaker Knight Notable Loot

  • The Oathbreaker Knight's corpse cannot be looted unlike other corpses in the game. Instead, 3 javelins are dropped next to it.
  • If the player has reclaimed their original Oath by paying 2000gp and the Oathbreaker Knight is killed, the gold paid will drop next to his corpse.


Oathbreaker Knight Notes and Tips

  • The Oathbreaker Knight uses Divine Smite same as player Paladins, but does not appear to use any spells or subclass features.
  • As of Patch 9, his greatsword cannot be looted.
  • He has the second highest amount of health in the game out of any NPC that can be fought as of Patch 9, second only to Grym.
  • Killing the Oathbreaker Knight does not break a Paladin's Oath.
  • If the player chooses to fight the Oathbreaker Knight by attacking him in camp, all companions not already in the player's party will turn hostile due to the Knight being a neutral NPC. Withers will also turn hostile if present at camp, creating an unwinnable fight as Withers cannot be killed.

      Out of curiosity I decided to fight the guy to see what happens, here's what happened:
      Smacking him aggros the entire camp, including Withers, meaning that the fight itself could never actually end since Withers is immortal and can't be sent off.
      OBK uses a +1 Greatsword, which you can actually pick up if you can get him to drop the weapon with Heat Metal. Doing so made him focus more on casting spells at first, but he eventually equipped one of his javelins (which are also the only items available if you try to pickpocket him) as a melee weapon.
      His corpse immediately despawns after he dies, which leads me to believe there isn't a special interaction from his death atm, even if you skipped on Withers and killed the rest of the camp as well.

      All in all, it ain't worth picking a fight with this guy whatsoever, the only tangible reward is the greatsword (which you can get from plenty other sources, some with added effects like the sussur bark one), and you need a very specific setup to even get it (don't have Withers in camp, be strong enough to kill him and all the camp residents, have him drop the sword with heat metal), and it presumably perma-locks your party's paladin to oathbreaker.
      I am pretty curious to see if something special happens if you try this in the full release, and I do intend to try it again come august.
