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 it's statistics and the fact that it can be obtained very early on during the game, if not obtained during character creation.
