The Elite Knight Set is armor set in Dark Souls III.


The player must first complete the questline for Anri of Astora, before being able to purchase this set from the Shrine Handmaid.


Just like in the previous Dark Souls games, the Elite Knight Set is widely regarded as an overall excellent, and well-balanced, medium armor set, boasting impressive physical and elemental defenses, resistances, and poise, despite being in the middle of its class in terms of weight.

Much like other metallic armor sets, it is notably weaker against strike attacks and lightning damage; however, it is also much more resistant to fire damage and slash attacks, to boot.
