      okay ... but what's the actual drop rate? I know where to get it, I just don't know why I've killed him four times and none of his items have actually dropped.

        Maybe the reason the neck is exposed is just a lore thing. The description says they were all turned to ash, and your character is called the Ashen One...

          If you're looking to cosplay as a Black Knight you have to make your character's skin color pitch black so your throat won't stick out in the little gap at the bottom of the helmet.

              If in coop try using the charged arrow to hit him in the back so that you stagger him, then start attacking him.

                Strangely enough this set has a lot less poise then silver knight set contrary to the fact these guys are *****ing tanks...

                  3 shields, 4 helms, 3 armors, 3 leggings, and 3 greatswords. all of these repeats before i got the full set with those damn gauntlets. but you know what? it was worth it. it's a fabulous set. though it's with sets like these where i can really start hating RNG item drops for an armor set.

                    The gold coin/rusted coin stacks with the gold covetous ring, also patches in fire link sells rusted coins for 200 ea.

                      What I love are people underestimating me for wearing this set instead of Artorias or Firelink set, then just blam them because they either mock me for a "Low" or "Noob" level, or just make it easy for me. Thank you people who did the 2nd option (People who did first, you deserved the point down and welcome)

                          Still bugged?17 Aug 2016 22:56  

                          Not been playing for a while - so is the Black Knight Helm still bugged? Like the blacked out texture not coming down far enough? Kind of ruined the set for me.
