Elite Knight Set is an Armor in Dark Souls 3.

Armor said to have been given to elite knights of fallen Astora.

The mere mention of Astora invoked wistful pangs, and perhaps it was such a dream that drew Anri to this faraway home known only by name.

      This article feels a bit misleading since you have to deal with Anri to get the armor to appear for sale whether you helped him/her or not.

        I wear this cause it's like Undead Legion armor for less Edgy Kids such as myself. Cool cloth physics. One Gauntlet and one Leather Glove. Neck Guard tied to the shoulder pad. UTILITY BELT. Everything you could ever want.

        No seriously, look at them side by side, this is the Non-Anime, Functions-in-Society-Adult armor that came before the time of weeaboos and breakdancing swords.

          If you're not digging the leather glove then swap those out with the knight gauntlets. Same goes for helmet

            My character isn't even fat and this set adeed some necessary thickness when I wear it. Probably cus my torso and arms are a bit burly or big.

              Is this better than the abyss watchers set? i saw on this wiki that despite its stats the abyss watcher set was one of the best in the game, but i look at these stats and it seems this set is better, so i would just like to know witch is best.

                Armor now showing on Quest completion24 Jun 2016 14:27  

                I got to the end of Anri's questline and killed Aldrich, but as he died he fired off his arrow attack which killed Anri. I received the sword from Ludleth and the summon sign was gone, but the armor did now show up in the Handmaiden's shop. Could Anri's death have glitched this out? Because I want to get that sexy Elite Knight set.

                  Can you still get this armor if you do Yuria's questline? If so when does it become available.

                    I just tested this. You can simply kill Anri and Horace if you just want the armor and unique sword and shield. The questline isn't necessary.
