For the Dark Souls variant, see Black Knight Set.

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

In-Game Description

Armor of the Black Knights who roam the lands.
The Knights served the First Lord Gwyn, and followed him into the flame upon its linking. They became ash, but still wander the realms to this day.

Availability[]

Dropped by Black Knights in Road of Sacrifices, Smouldering Lake and Untended Graves.

Characteristics[]

Returning from Dark Souls, the Black Knight Set is on the light end of heavy armor sets and provides very good defenses across the board.

It is highly resistant to most forms of physical damage, save for a comparative weakness to Strike damage that is nonetheless higher than that found on many lighter sets. Its elemental resistances are respectable but somewhat low for its weight, though it is highly resistant to Fire damage. Its resistance to status effects is quite moderate, having no particular weaknesses and being quite resistant to Bleed build-up.

While it has a respectable poise-to-weight ratio, the total amount of Poise provided largely limits its effectiveness to trading when supported by the innate poise health of an ultra greatsword or larger.
