"Low-ranking knight. High HP, solid armor. Not easily toppled."
— Character Creation

The Knight is one of the Classes in Dark Souls.


The Knight is a tank class, and starts with the highest vitality value of all classes, as well as possessing the most robust equipment. This, however, comes at the price of slower movement - although the player can remove their helmet and gauntlets to allow them to medium roll at the start of the game without much defense loss. Due to their high Strength and Dexterity levels, Knights are able to easily equip most forms of weaponry, and their faith stat is high enough as to allow for Knights healing themselves with miracles. The Knight automatically begins the game in the Way of White covenant, but unlike the Cleric class, does not have access to the early-game miracles (unless they are bought from Petrus of Thorolund).
