For the Dark Souls variant, see Silver Knight Set.

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

In-Game Description

Armor of the Silver Knights allegiant to the royals of old.
It is said that even after the family's passing, the knights continued to watch over their manor, and the ruined cathedral.


Dropped by Silver Knights in Irithyll of the Boreal Valley and Anor Londo.


Making a return from Dark Souls, the Silver Knight Set has a moderate weight cost amongst heavy armor sets, and offers strong and balanced defenses in return.

While it has relatively moderate resistance to Standard physical damage, the set offers very impressive absorption against Slash and Thrust damage, making it useful to wear against specialty weapons. While it is weak to Strike damage like other plate metal sets, it can still ward off an acceptable amount of damage from blunt weapons. Its elemental defenses are quite well-balanced, providing good resistance against Magic and Fire damage, and its weaknesses to Lightning and Dark are still quite tolerable. It offers good all-round defense against status effect buildup, with no major weaknesses to exploit.

With a strong poise-to-weight ratio, the Silver Knight Set is well-suited to wielding large weapons to back up its high defenses.
