Elite Knight Set
Elite Knight Set is an Armor Set in Dark Souls and Dark Souls Remastered.
Elite Knight Set Information
Armor of a nameless knight, perhaps an elite knight of Astora, based on the fire-warding heraldic symbol on it's blue surcoat.Although he was loath to give up on his Undead mission, he perished at the Undead Asylum, and went Hollow.
- Upon entering Darkroot Garden follow the road until you get to a sealed door. Follow the path to the right of the door until you come to a white fog. Go through the fog and you will see a small forest in front of you as well as a corpse with the armor set. The corpse is guarded by two sleeping stone knights and four ents. You do not need to fight them, you can simply run up, get the items and run away.

Second best armor after the Banished Knight unaltered chestpiece accident.
The best looking armor, only for handsome players
This or the original ps3 Demons Souls male Fluted Set? Both are iconic and I guess it just depends which game you played. For me this set in action in the DeS intro and the deluxe edition/asian cover art of the set on the ground with the arrows in the shield is forever burned into my brain and set the tone of the series for me.
Good 'ole reliable...
This is like the only good looking armor set in the whole game lol
Literally should have been nerfed. Make every other set except Havel's useless.
It’s the perfect armor set
Why is everyone stabbed me at the back?!!
John Darksoul, we meet again
The reason some things last so long is because they work, and they work damn well. A simple, yet timeless design with just enough detail and just enough originality to let you know that it's not just another medieval fantasy video game. Fully upgraded, it's the best armor defensively in the game for its weight, and it has more than enough poise to get you through.
You don't have to use the Elite Knight Set, but at least respect it. I'd put it up there with Halo's Spartan armor and Skyrim's Iron Armor for iconic video game outfits.
this armor is just a cheat code to win at fashion souls
If this is Oscar's armor, then why do we find it in Darkroot when he went hollow in the Asylum. Should of droped with the crest shield.
imagine having an opinion in the dark souls community
at 10+, has comparable defense to Havel's armor at almost half the weight.
i dont understand what exactly is poise?
it looks so bad in the remaster compared to ptde. look how they massacred my boy
very good looking armor
how do you get this set???????
The values for Helm are wrong. These are stats for +5, not for +10
I think this gives the highest poise for an armor set that doesnt reduce stamina? I e Giants or havels give much more poise and defense but they reduce stamina gain by 5 for wearing the whole set. If you have 40 plus endurance and ring of favor, you could argue that this set under certain circumstances is a bit better, as stamina regen means more attacks, more pressure and especially, more frequent "emergency" no stamina rolls. Is there an armour set that gives higher poise without the flat stamina reduction?
Why is the Chosen Undead always depicted wearing this even if it's Oscar of Astora's armor?
Beginners would wear the full set even if they were fat or mid rolling
Pretty good armour for beginners
Any suggestions on what weapons and shields to use with this armor?
Man, if the little tunic bit was a little longer, like a longcoat this armor would be 10/10. As it stands, it's a 9.
Why are these found in the woods of Oscar kicks it at the Asylum? Is the description a translation error, because it implies heavily that it is Oscar’s armor.
Great set if you got the endurance for it, at least until you can get the Catarina set. Try mixing the gauntlets from this set with the rest of the Catarina set if you want better stats for no additional weight gain (it'll cost ya, though).
Kinda tedious very early but it's possible to run as an Elite Knight at the very beginning if you chose the master key as a starting gift. Pick up the Astora Straight Sword and Dragon Crest Shield from the undead dragon then dash all the way to Darkroot Garden to get the armor set.
The gloves are two colors. Just realized
If i wanna do fashion souls but still have decent armor, is this a good choice?
Found this set all exited for the leggings cos they looked bad ass in Dark Souls 2 and were a great fashion souls item, but they look just lame in this game. Rest of the armour looks good though.
Canon Dark Souls poster man armor.
Does it look like the Lothric Knight armour from dark souls 3 to anyone else?
