The Cathedral Knight Set is a heavy armor set in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Massive iron armor worn by knights serving the Cathedral of the Deep.
Repulsive creatures of the deep are sure to attract the foolish, but the cathedral knights are prepared to meet such intruders head on with their more than ample might.



The Cathedral Knight Set has an all-round but unorthodox array of defenses for a heavy plate metal armor set, which sets it apart from its peers.

Despite being one of the heavier armor sets in the game, its physical defense numbers are not overly impressive, with its highest defense being against Thrust damage. However, its defining characteristic here is its high resistance to Strike damage and comparatively weak resistance to Slash damage, which is normally the reverse for plate metal sets. Similarly, it is very resistant to Lightning damage, being its second-highest elemental resistance next to Magic. Its resistance to status effects is respectable for its weight.

It has a strong poise-to-weight ratio that allows it to even weather attacks from Great Hammers.
