The Knight Set is a medium armor set in Dark Souls II.


Found in a chest between Heide's Tower of Flame and No-man's Wharf: 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 this armor set.

Armor pieces upgraded to +5 are rare drops from the two Heide Sword Knights that appear in the Forest of Fallen Giants at Bonfire Intensity 2+.


The Knight Set has high poise for its weight, outperforming many heavier medium sets, but suffers from underwhelming base defenses that improve with upgrades.
