        Fashion Souls is paramount, but aesthetically, this is one of the best looking sets imo.
        Well worth wearing the entire thing if you're using one of their weapons.
        What's more, I love the lore of the Black Knights.
        There's an incredibly epic, just, legendary quality of their story. The mighty Lord Gwyn...and his legion of faithful knights.
        They're basically the ultimate "no ****ing around, time to get **** done" legion of honorable badasses.
        After ferocious wars against the everlasting dragons, as the age of fire dwindles the Witch of Izelith in desperation tries to use the Life Soul in her possession, to create a new flame. This of course fails, consuming the Witch, and spawning un-ending hordes of demons.
        And so it falls to Gwyn to deal with this.
        He leaves half of his silver legion to protect Anor Londo, arms the rest with weapons forged to slay demons, and leads them into the depths for a second great war.
        But the demons are powerful, and their hordes infinite. This is a war that cannot be won...
        Countless Knights are slain, their armor blackened by the fires of chaos. Forced to retreat, and with the end of the age of fire drawing ever closer, Gwyn believes there is only one way he can sustain it and keep everyone alive, which is to sacrifice himself and link the flame.
        Through all of this, the Blackened Knights remain steadfast and loyal.
        To me, I see them as paragons of honor and loyalty.
        Loyalty being what I value above all else.

          reasons why you should run a luck build:
          bleed, poison, and the ability to not have to farm for cool armor as much

              there is actually 2 knights by the bonfire :Demon Ruins.

              once you spawn, go up and kill the 3 Smoldering Ghru in the adjacent room. on one path you will find rats.The other path leads you to a black knight with a great axe fighting a Ghru Grunt. This path should be cleared first as it is easier to get to. you can also find a black knight sward here.

              At the end of the rat path there is a black knight with a greatsword. be careful as Knight Slayer Tsorig hangs out bellow you near the lava (can be bated into it for easy clear)

                I decided I needed this set when I first found the one in Farron Keep, farmed the hell out of it, eventually got it, but now I'm so properly overleveled from the amount of souls I ended up having, I first tried Dancer in less than a minute, kind of bummed actually. Also traded the helm for the Silver Knight helm as that one doesn't turn me into a stick head

                  I have been farming these guys for hours trying to get the leggings. I have taken most of their armor, weapons, and even their very soul. However these guys will not surrender their pants. I am not gonna let these black knights win, they may take my sanity but dammit I will get those pants!

                    For a better looking and better defensive set, swap the leggings for Mornes leggings and the arms for Gundyrs gauntlets. Keep the rest the same.

                      Here’s what you do if you’re having trouble: 1. Equip hornet and covetous gold serpent ring 2. Equip dark infused weapon 3. Go to Champion Gundyr bonfire 4. Backstab the sh*t out of the black knights ahead I did this and got the entire set (including shield) in about ten minutes *Note: It may help to equip rusted coin too
