Fallen Knight Set is an Armor in Dark Souls 3.

Armor of an order of fallen knights who disbanded and fled but met untimely deaths.

The drab, tattered cloth conceals tough, black metal which provides dependable protection from fire.
It is just possible to make out the majestic gold engravings on its surface.

Location/Where to Find

  • Found in the Road of Sacrifices, from the Halfway Fortress bonfire, go to the lake near two hostile NPCs, by a Great Crab, and all of the pieces can be looted from a corpse.
  • Video location (fextralife video starting at 52m 14s)

Notes and Tips

  • This is an excellent medium weight set all around.
  • Generally good fire resist, and excellent lightning and strike resist for a set of metal armor.
  • The worn appearance seems similar to Hawkwood's Shield, but this is purely speculation.
  • Close inspection (especially of the helm) reveals similarities to the Drakeblood Set.
  • Being a hooded armor set, it also carries a loose resemblance to the Yahar'gul Hunter Set from Bloodborne.

      I'm trying to put together a bloodborne cosplay using the chestplate, but I don't know what legs to use. I've got the Silver Mask and Fire Keeper gloves, but I can't find any good pants.

        This set looks really cool with the Farron greatsword slung over your shoulder, especially if you two-hand it.

          I'm impressed of the fact that nobody actually managed to say anything yet or discover the reference behind this. This set is actually a Drakeblood Knight set from DS2 (Crown of the Sunken King). Although with a few modifications... but even the description says something about its black metal and golden trimming, which were the colors of the same set in DS2.

          Prolly worth addng into a trivia section here.

            This is a cool set if you are into the raggedy look. Beware that you may be deemed a cancerous noob unless you got the skills

              I honestly just wear this set cause A. I’m a sucker for hoods over armor. I don’t know why. And B. It’s the only armor with decent defense I can wear while weilding my Farron Great sword. I really need to invest time in just grinding levels.

                I'm rlly sorry but I honestly don't see how this set gets so much appeal. And I'm not an edgelord tryin' to diss other edgelords, I'm just a normal Dark Souls player who likes mixing armour sets for fashion souls. But this? In what world does wearing a hood over a helmet make any sense? And the trenchcoat? Dawg, straight up drug dealer or something over here. Idk, it just looks more comic than anything to me.

                  Don't wear this set. You don't want to be the guy who's wearing pee pee pants, "...they are dampened and indelibly stained with the misery of flight."

                    People ignore or just don't know about the huge fanservice DS3 makes for his Bloodborne players. This is another example. Sure it looks like a certain set BUT there was an armor in Bloodborne, the one of the kidnappers cult, that was pretty much a knights armor hidden under clothes. Like soldiers camouflage themself as "normal" hunters. Thats the reason for the clothes. Pretty much the Fallen Knight set. Sure we could make a connection to the Drakenblood knights but this is supposed to be an easter egg about that cult from Bloodborne. Same for the Bloodtlust or Yorshkas Chime btw. The Abysswatcher and the Wolfsblood. Or ever wondered whats up with Greirat and Loretta? Thats another reference to Bloodborne. There we'll have a certain quest with a girl and its dead family. As a Bloodborne player you may hesitate to give Greirat the bone. And everyone else don't even think about it a second...not knowing how screwed up this quest could become.

                      Aesthetically this is my favorite armor set. It seems like a lot of people wear it, so I don't think i'm unique at all but I just love the look. I know it's not similar at all really but still it reminds me of the wanderer starting gear (just because the coat and hood I think) and that brings back a lot of nostalgia for me. I'm thinking of making a new character just so I can change my name too "fallen knight _____".

                        Looks real nice if you swap the helmet and leggings for Drakeblood, since that seems to be the armor's original design. Maybe give it the Black Knight gauntlets, too.

                          The Fallen Knight set is the Knight Set but battered down. The most obvious similarities would be the leggings. Look at them both. Fallen knight leggins are Knight leggings without the steel plating. Another thing is the cloth around the waist of the Knight set. That same cloth can be spotted on the Fallen Knight set only it is longer due to less steel plating around the armor overall. The gauntlets of both sets have the same design structure wise. The only difference besides general looks between the 2 is that the fallen knight set has darker and has golden intricate engravings while the Knight set is more shiny and in it's "prime".

                            Despite it having the unfortunate distinction of being the Linkin Park starter kit (katana recommended), it combines really well with the black knight gauntlets, leggings, and the drakeblood helm.

                              Take note of this. This is a another's version of the DS3 Knight set. Believe me. Just look at some features on the Knight set and look for that feature in the Fallen Knight set. Look at the Knight leggings. Notice the many straps around behind the leggings? Pay attention to their placement and look for it on the Fallen Knight leggings. Notice it? Remember on the Knight set there was this cloth piece on the torso, at the waist behind the plate armor, over the chainmail? You can spot that very same cloth on the Fallen Knight set too! Same thing for the broad stout armor design. The only difference between the 2 other than general looks is that the Fallen Knight set is darker and has more intricate golden designs on it while the Knight set is shiny and plain, the only sign of any intricate design is on it's helmet.

                                They're quite different, the cuirass, faulds, spaulders, pauldrons, and faulds are completely different. As a few others have said, it has more in common with vilhem's armor, but it's still not quite the same. I can't tell if there are any symbols in common between the two. If it has anything to do with Londor, it would probably have to be before londor became the land of hollows because it seems sized for a normal person rather than the ultra slim hollow sizing.

                                The helmet also has the two eye slots that Vilhem's does, but also seems to have a seam for a hinge between the pair of eye slits and the area covering the rest of the face. It's possible that the mask could have cracked.

                                Really wish there was a clean version of this armor without the cloak. It's funny that it has some of the best vertex weighting in the game but they covered so much of it up with the cloak.

                                  Aside from both being black, there doesn't seem to be much in common between this and the drakeblood set. Fallen Knight set has a full cuirass , drakeblood set has an actually kind of short breastplate (almost looks like it needs a plackart), fallen knight has several Spaulders below the left pauldron while the drakeblood does not, and the faulds are completely different. I also couldn't find any symbols in common between the two sets. They appear unrelated, and this doesn't seem odd as we know the fate of the drakeblood knights, they sunk with Shulva.

                                  Comparisons to the Elite/Nameless knight set are clearly misguided, they have no parts or symbols in common and are centuries apart in terms of real world armor technology.

                                    Actually, the fallen knight helmet and chest seem to resemble Vilhelm's set more than the drake blood, due to having the same shaped helmet, the same color, and the same engravings.

                                      I have been wearing this armor for a while but it looks boring now... I made lighter and cooler edgy-samurai set for myself.

                                        "Reading The Lore Description of The Elite Knight Set as well as it's appearance strongly hints that the Fallen Knight Set is a battered Elite Knight Set." This makes no sense on any level. None of the descriptions of elite knight set in all of dark souls makes any connections with this set in anyway. Also the two set have little to no similarities excluding obvious ones shared between almost every armor in the game. Taking a look at the fallen knight set's description tell us that its made of black metal with golden engravings on the surface. DS2 Elite knight set's description states that its "made of bradden steel" and there aren't any visible engravings on the armor in any of the games. In addition if the fallen knight set was battered version of anything there probably wouldn't be enough of those engravings left to tell about them in the set's description and as a last point (for now at least) the set looks to be in a very good shape to be battered anyways.
                                        TL:DR last point in notes and tips is bs and should be removed asap.
