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.

      An idea for fashion souls: This set's helm, Gundyr chest & gauntlets, & winged knight leggings. Any thoughts?

      • Anonymous

        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

        • Anonymous

          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

              • Anonymous

                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.

                    • Anonymous

                      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

                          The drop on the helmet is stupid rare. I've been farming Cathedral Knights for like 2 hours with 222 item discovery and still no helmet.

                            Don't have pockets on your medieval knight armor? Just stuff all your things in your massive chainmail sleeves!

                            • Honestly, the chestpiece looks like a tin can wearing window curtains. Helmet looks amazing. Leggings and Gauntlets are kind of plain since they're normally hidden by the chestpiece.

                                  I recommend using Astora Greatsword with this set instead. Will look more realistic and imperious, than that overcized chunk of metal, that comes with this set.

                                    Too bad you cant get the other version of this set you see the knights wearing at the consumed kings garden.

                                    • RIP Elite version of this set (the blue version). They did the same thing in Dark Souls 1 with the cleric set. Vince & Nico wear the regular cleric set but Petrus wears the elite version (black and blue version, minus the helm) and yet we can only obtain the Elite Cleric Set by using cheat engine. It's so dumb. Instead of the elite Cathedral Knight Set we get the rusty one with the torn red cloth.

                                        Fashion tip: the size of the wearer's arms affects the size of the loose dangling sleeves. At maximum, they nearly reach the ground.

                                          Just got the armor after a bit of farming and I gotta say, it looks awesome except for the stupid dangly chainmail arm flaps. Looks so weird seeing it flap around like a piece of cloth.

                                            This page is wrong on the stats for the helm and gloves at least, maybe the rest. I only have the helm and gloves right now.

                                              Best to farm this set from the deacons of the deep bonfire location because there are two cathedral knights close by and are the weakest ones in game ( lowest amount of health for all cathedral knights present in game).

                                                It took me 40 minutes to get the freaking LEGGINGS of this set. The first 10 seconds and I and the got the set except the helm.

                                                    Helmet is all i needed for my cleric knight. Went with cathedral helm. Alva chest. Nameless knight legs and lothric arms. Pretty heavy and maybe not the best option but hell. Looks sexy as ***** and we all know that the more badass you look,the better you play.

                                                      Imo, this armour set is not very beneficial. Its stats are in the middle between Lothric Knight set and Gundyr's set.
                                                      It's better to wear Lothric Knight set for lighter weight or Gundyr's set for better protection. Unless, of course, you like to cosplay.

                                                        This armour is my favorite in the entire game. It is in my opinion the best heavy armor in the game (weight defense ratio)

                                                          load in from the oceiros bonfire and head towards the entrance to the bossfight, go up the stairs then backstab the one on the stairs before he agroes and hit him while he's getting up. By far the easiest and lowest death chance farming spot.

                                                            Does anyone know if the Consumed King's Knights drop this armour or do they have a set of their own? They are equipped in what looks very similar to this, but their cloth is deep blue and I think the metal is a bit darker too.

                                                              • I farmed this set from the bonfire of the main boss of Cathedral of the Deep from the two knights at the main alter without any luck increases. They seemed to drop it quite regularly, and most times they will not enter the room where the boss fight took place so you can kite them back their for easy sniping with a bow

                                                                  • I'm seeing alot of people complaining about farming this set, but I found it fairly easy to get. i'll explain my setup to anybody else whos struggling; I had around 350 item discover(covetus gold serpent, symbol of averice, crystal sage rapier and rusted coin). From the bonfire "Oceiros, The Consumed King" run up the stairs to the swamp with 2 cathederal knights with greatsword. Lures them one by one down the stairs(careful they are very fast) and leg it into the boss room. They won't follow you past the door so keep a fair distance and pelt with ranged attacks, rinse and repear. Hope this helps!

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        • - Lothric Castle bonfire: pass by the ladder leading to the Boreal Dancer boss room and continue straight on outside down a flight of stairs. You will spot a blue cathedral knight guarding the elevator to the Consumed King's Garden. It's possible to pass by him and backstab him if you have the Slumbering Dragoncrest Ring equipped- Oceiros, the Consumed King bonfire: head back outside. A single cathedral knight will be guarding the entrance with his back turned against you.

                                                                          • Anonymous

Had about 300+ item find (Symbol of Averice, Covetous Gold Serpent Ring +1, Rusted Coin), and managed to get the full set in a short amount of time. Pretty sure the knights near there have a higher drop rate than the ones in the Cathedral. Too bad you can't get blue version.
