The Knight Gauntlets are hands armor in Dark Souls II. They are part of the Knight Set.

In-Game Description

Metal gauntlets worn by knights.
Despite the thin metal used, the grooved texture gives it added protection. Many knights favor these gauntlets for their refined craftsmanship, and their like has been passed down the generations.


Found in a chest on the path between Heide's Tower of Flame and No-man's Wharf, along with the rest of the set: before entering the hole in the wall to the bonfire, take a left turn and defeat the Old Knight protecting the doorway.

In SotFS, the entrance is blocked by a statue and guarded by a Basilisk and two Hollow Infantries. Furthermore, a Primal Knight now protects the armor set.

Rare drop upgraded to +5 from the two Heide Sword Knights that appear in the Forest of Fallen Giants at Bonfire Intensity 2+.
