Cathedral Knight Set is an Armor in Dark Souls 3.

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 better places to farm this set is by either starting at the Dancer Bonfire, heading up the ladder and going to your left. There with be a Cathedral Knight there. He will drop the set as well as the great shield and Great Mace. From there head through the Consumed King's garden and follow the right side of the area avoiding the abyss beasts that you run into. You will come across a door on the right with an elevator. Go up that elevator and unlock the shortcut, then double back and jump off the opposite side of the life before you reach the bottom. Kill the priest. There will be two more Cathedral Knights with greatswords. It is recommended to only aggro one at a time. You can also summon Hawkwood to help you by doubling back. His sign is in the center of a large circular area. He can provide an ample distraction for the player.

        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).

          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.

              Imo, this armour set is not very beneficial. Its stats are in the middle between Lothric Knight set and Gundyr's set.
              It's better to wear Lothric Knight set for lighter weight or Gundyr's set for better protection. Unless, of course, you like to cosplay.

              • So, I managed to loot the entire set, with help of one rusted coin, and a Sage Rapier..20 Sep 2016 20:38  

                Certainly way faster to loot, than the Lothric set. But bloody hell.. The weight.

                  load in from the oceiros bonfire and head towards the entrance to the bossfight, go up the stairs then backstab the one on the stairs before he agroes and hit him while he's getting up. By far the easiest and lowest death chance farming spot.

                  • This set looks amazing and is my favourite, but...15 May 2016 05:42  

                    Does anyone know if the Consumed King's Knights drop this armour or do they have a set of their own? They are equipped in what looks very similar to this, but their cloth is deep blue and I think the metal is a bit darker too.

                      I farmed this set from the bonfire of the main boss of Cathedral of the Deep from the two knights at the main alter without any luck increases. They seemed to drop it quite regularly, and most times they will not enter the room where the boss fight took place so you can kite them back their for easy sniping with a bow<br/>

                        When the cathedral knight armor and gauntlets are used in conjunction with the black iron helmet and leggings, it grants nearly as much defense as the full Havel set.

                          I'm seeing alot of people complaining about farming this set, but I found it fairly easy to get. i'll explain my setup to anybody else whos struggling; I had around 350 item discover(covetus gold serpent, symbol of averice, crystal sage rapier and rusted coin). From the bonfire "Oceiros, The Consumed King" run up the stairs to the swamp with 2 cathederal knights with greatsword. Lures them one by one down the stairs(careful they are very fast) and leg it into the boss room. They won't follow you past the door so keep a fair distance and pelt with ranged attacks, rinse and repear. Hope this helps!
