Cathedral Knight Set is an Armor in Dark Souls 3.

Massive iron armor worn by knights serving the Cathedral of the Deep.

Repulsive creatures of the deep are sure to attract the foolish, but the cathedral knights are prepared to meet such intruders head on with their more than ample might.

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 best ways to try to get the Cathedral Set is by the Oceiros bonfire and then walking back to the courtyard with the two Cathedral Knights or the Deacons of the Deep Bonfire walking back in the Cathedral. Two of those knights are located in both areas. Objectively the Deacons of the Deep is the easiest as the Knights there are not as strong as they are in the Consumed King's Garden.

      So let me get this straight.
      The armor with the most flat plates of any set in the game that would be absolutely terrible at deflecting stabbing attacks, has among the highest thrust defense?
      Yeah okay

        This is one of those armor sets that you can get 3 pieces of with little to no difficulty, but it takes eons to complete the set.
        And the final piece the game doesn’t let you get is random per character, because F*** you

          Spent seven hours last night farming this, got one pair of boots and the helmet. Got irritated and went to bed, booted up the game after coming home from work, and got the armour, boots, and gauntlets from my first drop back. No item discovery boosts were used.

          This game sometimes, mate.

            Anyone who has worn chain mail before knows that it doesn’t flutter around like tissue paper stuck to a fan, I genuinely don’t understand why the cloth physics are so bad, cloth/chain mail just overreacts way to much in this game, still a cool set

              The only thing that ruins this set is those massive chainmail sleeves, the physics clearly bugs out and it looks ridiculous when moving.

                on my save, i have gotten so many hemets, several leggings, and one pair of gauntlets, the freaking chestplate is way to hard to get, i havent been using luck enhancers but i think i might start to.

                  I guess I was kinda lucky killed two knights on my way through Cathedral got chest piece immediately, didn't plan to farm it, but I just love the look and stats on chest.

                    As far as im concerned the cathedral set chest is just the single best chest in the entire game, super high poise and physical protection stats, and a fair amount of other protections with a reasonable weight requirement. Even on twink characters i wear cathedral chest just for how good it is

                      I got soooo lucky farming these guys. I got the helm, gauntlets, leggings and a twin titanite shard from one guy, and the torso from another
