The Elite Knight Set is a medium armor set in Dark Souls.

AvailabilityEdit

Found in the Darkroot Garden, down a path to right of the Gate of Artorias. It is guarded by Demonic Foliage and Stone Knights.

PlotEdit

Attire of high-ranking knights from the realm of Astora. Worn by Undead Prince Ricard and Oscar, Knight of Astora.

CharacteristicsEdit

The set boasts one of the highest defense/weight ratios in the game, with stats comparable to that of Havel's Set or the Stone Set when fully upgraded, while weighing nowhere near as much. On the other hand, the Elite Knight set features generally unremarkable Poise. As this set can be acquired relatively early in the game, it stands as a viable choice for low-level characters to rely on.

NotesEdit

The Elite Knight Set's poise was nerfed in 1.04, but buffed in Patch 1.06.

TriviaEdit

  • The descriptions of the set pieces say they were worn by an "elite knight of Astora", and that this knight "perished at the Undead Asylum, and went Hollow." This is referring to Oscar, Knight of Astora, who is the first NPC the player meets.
  • This is the armor that was most thoroughly used in advertisement and its helm is found on the special edition alternative cover art of the game. For these reasons, many people see this set as the "signature" armor of the game.
