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

In-Game Description

Armor said to have been given to elite knights of fallen Astora.
The mere mention of Astora invoked wistful pangs, and perhaps it was such a dream that drew Anri to this faraway home known only by name.

AvailabilityEdit

Sold by the Shrine Handmaid for a total of 13,500 souls upon the death of Anri of Astora, either from the completion of Yuria of Londor's questline or from killing Anri.

CharacteristicsEdit

Just as in the previous games, the Elite Knight Set is widely regarded as an overall excellent and well-balanced medium armor set. It boasts 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.
