Cathedral Knight Set is an Armor in Dark Souls 3.

Massive iron armor worn by knights serving the Cathedral of the Deep.

Repulsive creatures of the deep are sure to attract the foolish, but the cathedral knights are prepared to meet such intruders head on with their more than ample might.

Location/Where to Find

Notes and Tips

  • Having high item find (high luck/gold serpant ring/crystal sage rapier, gold/rusted coins) is recommended for farming this set.
  • One of the best ways to try to get the Cathedral Set is by the Oceiros bonfire and then walking back to the courtyard with the two Cathedral Knights or the Deacons of the Deep Bonfire walking back in the Cathedral. Two of those knights are located in both areas. Objectively the Deacons of the Deep is the easiest as the Knights there are not as strong as they are in the Consumed King's Garden.

      RIP Elite version of this set (the blue version). They did the same thing in Dark Souls 1 with the cleric set. Vince & Nico wear the regular cleric set but Petrus wears the elite version (black and blue version, minus the helm) and yet we can only obtain the Elite Cleric Set by using cheat engine. It's so dumb. Instead of the elite Cathedral Knight Set we get the rusty one with the torn red cloth.

        Fashion tip: the size of the wearer's arms affects the size of the loose dangling sleeves. At maximum, they nearly reach the ground.

          Just got the armor after a bit of farming and I gotta say, it looks awesome except for the stupid dangly chainmail arm flaps. Looks so weird seeing it flap around like a piece of cloth.

              Best to farm this set from the deacons of the deep bonfire location because there are two cathedral knights close by and are the weakest ones in game ( lowest amount of health for all cathedral knights present in game).

                It took me 40 minutes to get the freaking LEGGINGS of this set. The first 10 seconds and I and the got the set except the helm.

                  Wear this armor, and no heathen may scratch thy holy hide. Prithee, thou must not let even the toe of any unsavory heathen obscure thy holy realm. May the pope look favorably on thy righteous crusade. DEUS VULT.

                    Helmet is all i needed for my cleric knight. Went with cathedral helm. Alva chest. Nameless knight legs and lothric arms. Pretty heavy and maybe not the best option but hell. Looks sexy as ***** and we all know that the more badass you look,the better you play.
