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 defenses; When compared to most of the other medium armor sets, the Knight Set boasts much higher defenses overall, decent elemental and status resistances, and decent poise for most light attacks. However, it's poise isn't very useful against heavy weapons, such as Ultra Greatswords, and the set is one of the most heavy of the medium armor sets, requiring higher vitality in order to be able to dodge efficiently if one wishes to wield heavier weapons. 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.
