Not to be confused with Nameless Knight Set.

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

In-Game Description

Armor of a lowly knight, fashioned from solid iron.
This iron armor might be on the heftier side compared to others of their ilk, but as such offer great physical absorption in exchange for its/their imposing weight.
Do not think to wear it without the necessary Vitality.



The Knight Set is one of best medium armor sets in Dark Souls III when it comes to protection and efficiency.

When compared to most of the other medium armor sets, the Knight Set boasts much higher physical defenses overall, decent elemental and status resistances, and decent poise for most light attacks, but heavier weapons will sunder the armor's poise, so care should be taken when engaging heavily armed enemies.

However, the Knight Set is on the heavier end of the medium armor sets, requiring higher vitality in order to prevent mobility from being compromised if one wishes to don heavier weapons. Furthermore, like the other metal armor sets, it is susceptible to both strike attacks and lightning damage, but as a result, is highly resistant to slash attacks and fire.

Regardless, it remains as one of the best sets in the game due to its statistics and the fact that it can be obtained very early on during the game, if not obtained during character creation.

  • It would appear that the armor's design is based on the garniture Italian armors forged in the 16th century, with the most notable resemblances being the engravings and intricate detail found on the helmet, pauldrons, knee braces, and gauntlets.
