Type Medium Armor Set

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


Pieces of the set are dropped from the Heide Knights, a non-respawning enemy, and only drops when the bonfire the knight is closest to is at intensity 2 or higher. This causes the set to be hard to obtain, but the knights will always drop a random piece of their armor, or the weapon the defeated knight was wielding when he is killed, with the exception of the Heide Knight near the Shrine of Winter, who uses a sword, but drops the Heide Lance, or Heide Greatlance at bonfire intensity 2.

In Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin, there are respawning Heide Knights at Heide's Tower of Flame, which makes it a lot easier to farm for the equipment at bonfire intensity 2.

Set PiecesEdit

Characteristics Edit

The Heide Knight Set is a fairly balanced set, with it's best qualities being it's high defense, along with it's relatively decent poison, bleeding, and curse resistance. However, it has rather unremarkable poise, no petrify resistance, and is one of the most heavy medium armor sets. Once fully upgraded, the defense is much higher, making it one of the better medium armor sets if one can handle it's fairly low poise and heavy weight.


  • To obtain the set quickly; try using a Bonfire Ascetic in the area where the Knight used to be so he can respawn. (Only necessary in Dark Souls II)
    • In Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin, you only have to use a Bonfire Ascetic on the bonfire that corresponds with the Heide Knights at Heide's Tower of Flame once to allow them to drop their armor.
  • To boost the chances of acquiring this armor set, or any armor set in particular, one should use equipment that increases Item Discovery, such as: the Covetous Gold Serpent Ring (+2, for better chances), the Prisoner's Tatters, and either the Traveling Merchant Hat, or the Prisoner's Hood. These two pieces of clothing will have little to no armor rating, but will raise item drop chance by 5% each. The Symbol of Avarice is also a good choice, as it will give extra souls too.
  • The Heide Knight set is useful when used with faith builds, as it has fairly decent dark defense, and higher faith will supplement the set's generally poor lightning defense, making it more balanced with the right build.
