Lothric Knight Set is an Armor in Dark Souls 3.

Armor of a celebrated Lothric knight. A strong steel armor, if a little worn.

The Knight has served as one of the Three Pillars since ancient times, and shares place alongside the wyverns as a symbol of Lothric.

Only those possessing a knight's resolve are fit to wear this garment.

Location/Where to Find

Notes and Tips

  • The helmet strongly resembles the Pursuer's from Dark Souls 2
  • One of the best places to farm this set is Tower on the Wall - there is a knight just below the fire place and you can isolate him by hitting the air when you run down. You may also lure the dragon to kill him for you by firing an arrow at the dragon while you are outside the door, just remember to roll back in to avoid the dragon breath. Another place to farm is outside the Dancer of the Boreal Valley or Vordt boss arenas. Head out and there will be three normal and one red-eyed knight waiting. Using halberds will make this farm easier as you can poke from a range and not get hit.

      yeah its cool but heavy as f***. maybe one if not THE reason so many complain about the difficulty. All running around in the complete set...fatroling...constantly dying...

      • 15 Apr 2017 07:50  

        Nice defensive stats, 142 flat physical and around 28-ish % absorption, decent elemental absorption (except lightning). For 31 vit and the NG version of the ring of favor, i can wear the complete set with shield and sword, plus the knight crossbow. Its a full cosplay!

        • 05 Nov 2016 15:02  

          Despite being early obtainable, this armour set is actually quite good.
          It has good defenses against physical/magical/status attacks and still lighter than the Cathedral Knight set.

          • Too heavy31 Jul 2016 00:22  

            This set is one of the best in the game, compared to many others, but it's way too heavy. I have 38 vitality, and it still is impossible to wear without having to use light weapons. It's a pity that the weight ruins this set.

            • easy knight farming07 Jul 2016 19:23  

              If you've beat the beast boss, lure knights to his domain. They won't go inside the room. You can then easily kill them and get their drops without fear of dying.

              • God...14 Jun 2016 20:27  

                I can't tell you HOW MANY TIMES I had to restart just to get these sets of items. I can get the Lothric weapons easy from Greirat, but the armor is a ***** to get considering the only way to get it is by kill the ganking knights. (I've been swarmed by all three once)<br/>I had to restart my game several times due to power-outages, ALSO QUICK NOTE IF YOU DISCONNECT BY TURNING OFF THE SYSTEM OR PUTTING IT IN SLEEP MORE THAN 5 TIMES, YOU WILL GET THE SAVE DATA CORRUPT MESSAGE AND EVERY CHARACTER SAVE WILL BE DELETED.

                • Knight's Resolve22 May 2016 19:15  

                  So I'm a little confused by this, I tried to wear it, but it wouldn't let me. After reading the description, is it safe to assume that I have to actually choose the knight class? Or is there something else at play?

                  • Farming09 May 2016 05:44  

                    As a tip, I noticed that the bonfire you get for defeating Vordt is better than than The Tower on the Wall bonfire because there are 4 Lothric Knights you can fight one on one. They are not far from the bonfire and made it more efficient to farm their armor.

                    • Drop rates in this game are *****ed:02 May 2016 08:51  

                      After extensive restarts as a deprived character I can say with confidence that drop rates are not consistent with any item. There are definite item patterns you can make out after a few sweeps which is a bit annoying. <br/><br/>An example being that in one play-through I had the entire Lothric set including weapons drop except for the Lothric Greatshield which took (5+) hours to farm with 10 luck. <br/><br/>Yet in another play-through the Lothric Greatshield dropped in an instant, and it took (5+) hours for one of the other Lothric items to drop. <br/><br/>The supposed "rare" Lothric Knight Sword for instance was dropping almost every kill at 10 luck. Meanwhile in another play-through it was the Lothric Shield.<br/><br/>Drop rates are not consistent, and I would daresay that the game labels certain items from the beginning to be harder to farm then others. I honestly feel there is no standardized format for farming like the other Dark Souls versions. You never know what to expect with this new system!<br/><br/>This was not limited to just Lothric equipment either, and common items like the soldiers iron shield were having the same thing happen.

                      • Set drops on all knights25 Apr 2016 22:07  

                        Arms seems to drop mainly on the blue cape knight though. I got the helm, and legs on the spear knight, armor on normal knights. When embered up the stuff drops like mad. Ive gotten all the pieces sword, heavy shield, normal shield, everything except the spear so far. I dont believe there's something that gives you a blue cape though

                        • phys absorption is wrong23 Apr 2016 23:45  

                          im wearing full lothric knight sight and i have 27.160 phys absorption not the listed 30.1 that's posted here. i have NOTHING equipped besides the armor. the weight is correct though. it is 36. looking at all my physical absorptions (normal, strike, slash etc. but not elemental resist) compared to the wiki everything is 3 below what is posted here.

                          • A quick tip about this armor.22 Apr 2016 09:25  

                            If you play Dark Souls like I do (heavy armor at all times and large weapons) , this armor is perfect for just that! <br/>My only criticism of the armor is that it's too good at what it does. Compared to the starter knight armor , this armor is god like. You will be wearing this armor for a long extent of the game because of how good it is. I'm all for physical protection but this armor is ridiculous. I've been wearing it for so long that it's design is burned into my brain. Any armor that could be considered better can only be found after a good chunk of the game.

                            • Blue Version15 Apr 2016 23:20  

                              Ive heard whispers that the blue one has a chance to drop the blue variant of the armor? I haven't seen any sources confirming this so I am doubtful, but the fashion souls player in me wants to know.

                              • Easy armor drop15 Apr 2016 13:54  

                                Kill the blue knight near Vordt with the 3 Lothric Knights. Killed him two times in a row, after first kill he dropped both Lothric Helm and Chest twice
