Characteristics Edit

The Elite Knight Set is a very well-balanced medium armor set, boasting great physical and elemental defenses, as well as decent bleed and poison resistances, and some appreciable, but rather unremarkable, Poise. While the set does boast a great defense/weight ratio, some heavier medium armor sets still outperform it significantly, namely the Throne Watcher Set and the Drakeblood Set, though the latter is only obtainable via a DLC.

Being considerably easier to acquire in Scholar of the First Sin, the Aurous' Set is a much better alternative, as it outperforms the Elite Knight set in every possible way.

However, many new players may be warded off by this set at first, as the high weight, coupled with a low vitality stat, is quite an ill combination.
