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 Knights' armor.
  • Being a hooded armor set, it also carries a loose resemblance to the Yahar'gul Hunter Set from Bloodborne.
  • 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.

      The metal of the Helm is clearly mangled and the horizontal slit I previously thought was an eyehole is the result of that. There are clearly two smaller eyeholes right above that slit. While the pieces of the two sets are obviously not the same, the golden engravings and the whole color scheme are very similar to Vilhelm's set. Leads me to believe that the band of fallen knights were former knights of Londor. I really want the restored version of this set without the cloth.

        Don't know how it resembles Yahar'Gul. The hoods doesn't even look alike. Also, it's like saying this resembles Mirrah Chan set because it has gauntlets.

          elite knight helm with the rest of this set and shield of want with the twin princes greatsword
          best looking combo in the game (excluding the berserker armour looking set I made)

          • Fire resist22 Sep 2016 02:31  

            Why does everyone use this set for fire resist, other sets have better fire resist than this one. Anyone know the set with the best fire resist?

              Run with the Fallen knight helm and chest, sellsword gauntlets and sorcerer boots , i don't really know what you would call it, but it looks ***** good

                Any tiny resemblance to the drakeblood set is purely coincidental.<br/><br/>It only has similar colour palette, that's it.<br/><br/>FALLKNGHT set has a full cuirass torsoplate, DRKBLOD has not.

                  Resistances aside, this set has some above average defense compared to other armor at a similar weight value. Slash defense is weaker than the Knight set, but the everything else seems to be more or less on par, and the fire defense is excellent.

                  • It is not like the Drakeblood Set at all...14 Jul 2016 14:04  

                    If you actually look at the design rather than just the color scheme you can clearly see that it's basically a worn and recolored Knight set with cloth and other small changes...

                    • Viable with Knight?11 Jul 2016 18:58  

                      I've been a heavy-armor using Knight my whole playthrough, and I found this armor. It's way lighter, and it's a little worse than my starting gear, but much lighter, and looks badass. Is it worth it?

                      • Fallen Knight = drakeblood10 Jul 2016 02:57  

                        Anyone else notice that the fallen Knight set looks very similar to the drakeblood set but rusty and old? I know the drakeblood set mentions the Knights wandering around but are there any solid ties to link the two sets?

                        • Fallen Knight Set02 Jul 2016 20:19  

                          I think this looks like the Alonne Knight set but with a hood/cape/etc over it. And the iron fortress was supposed to be slowly sinking into the magma, so the name Fallen Knight fits.

                            Any chance that the Fallen Knights were knights of the Profaned Capital? Possibly fleeing before or during the cataclysm that killed the humans in the Profaned capital when yhorm linked the first flame, only to be killed in the crucifixion woods(possibly by watchdogs of Farron). The armor is blackened and resistant to fire, which would make sense if it was forged with the profaned flame. The vertical gold designs on the helm and chestpiece remind me of the Jailor's robes, who were survivors from the profaned capital. And there are no knights in the profaned capital, only white robe jailors and gargoyles, and what kind of capital would have no knights? Pretty much all of the knight sets in the game are from areas that are in the game or described to be from far away, except the fallen knights.

                              It's really a shame this set gets a bad rap for being overused by edgelords/immature kids or whatever's happened to it. I personally find the set/pieces thereof one of my favorites, for stats and Fashion Souls both, yet I can't use it without having a hard time getting summoned, or respected as per standard in the case of PvP. Am I the only one having this issue?
