Fallen Knight Set is an Armor in Dark Souls 3.




Armor of an order of fallen knights who disbanded and fled but met untimely deaths.

The drab, tattered cloth conceals tough, black metal which provides dependable protection from fire.
It is just possible to make out the majestic gold engravings on its surface.





Location/Where to Find

  • Found in the Road of Sacrifices, from the Halfway Fortress bonfire, go to the lake near two hostile NPCs, by a Great Crab, and all of the pieces can be looted from a corpse.
  • Video location (fextralife video starting at 52m 14s)





Notes and Tips

  • This is an excellent medium weight set all around.
  • Generally good fire resist, and excellent lightning and strike resist for a set of metal armor.
  • The worn appearance seems similar to Hawkwood's Shield, but this is purely speculation.
  • Close inspection (especially of the helm) reveals similarities to the Drakeblood Set.
  • Being a hooded armor set, it also carries a loose resemblance to the Yahar'gul Hunter Set from Bloodborne.

      imma be honest I hate when people use this helm in fashion souls because anytime i see someone using it it just doesnt even match whatever else theyre wearing

        Dark katanas, undead dragons, magic anime great swords, playing a game called "Dark Souls..." but this muddy set of armor with a hood at the beginning of the game, that's for edgelord casuals

        • Anonymous

          Allow me to end the ignorance once and for all. The excerpt "stained with the misery of flight" refers to the constant travelling the fallen knights took part in which could include traversing through swamps. The armor set is found in Crucifixion Woods so it's pretty safe to assume they may have been through Farron Keep and Cathedral of the Deep. To put it in TL;DR form: If anything, they're as battle-hardened as they come, their athleticism is unmatched, and they may, or may not know your mother as a result.

            I mean of all the armors in darksouls 3 I prefer this. I especially like the chest piece and wearing silver knight gauntlets with the thief mask looks pretty cool.

              Face it, the only reason you guys are hating on this set is because you suck at the game and just because you die wearing it doesn't mean you can **** on an interesting armor

                People call this "Casual" and "Noob Armor" but the truth is, it is one of the best and most versatile armor set in the game.

                  Really like the torn-cloak look of this, plus it has an actual armor component underneath. One of my faves for sure.

                    I've played DS3 for quite a while, and I typically use this set in all of my playthroughs? Why? Because edgy doesn't equal bad. This set and Friede's Great Scythe, possibly more edgy than the Katana.

                    Also I'm a big Star Wars fan and this has that sort of aesthetic, so there is also that.

                      Fallen knight armor, grass crest shield, uchigatana/irithyll straight sword is the new player uniform and I actually love it. Whenever I invade one I give them a little present and leave

                        I find it funny when people whine about a set being so "EdGy" in a goddamn game called mother ****ing darksouls. like come the **** on and grow up.

                          I've been playing this game for years and never put this set on, but in a recent playthrough as a pyro with low vitality this set just checked all the boxes, excellent defense to weight, good all round resistances and in found in a swamp right next the the great swamp pyro tome and next to the crab that drops the great swamp ring, so I thought this was pretty perfect for my character. Then I suddenly started getting messages in PvP about my gear and even one guy I co-op'ed with, mocking it. So I googled it, and well, I have no idea what happens to peoples minds when they play these souls games but it appears to effect some brains in a very negative and eccentric way. Great games but what a bizarre fan base.

                            Wait, so it is good or it is bad? I found it and thought it look neat, so I decided it would be my armor until I find elite knight armor. Irdc bout stats and defense, in my souls experience everything one hits u in ng+ so who cares. Real Chads focus on fashion

                              Casual bashing? Be happy that people are playin this game and that multiplayer isnt dead although there are a ton of toxic "pro"-players. Let players wear and use what they like for gods sake

                                One of those cases when a good piece of gear is absolutely destroyed by community of the game. Personally - i absolutely love this set. It was the set i finished my 1st blind playthrough with. I love the humble nature of it as it attempts to pathetically hide its real nature with clothes that are literally hanging by a thread. The lore suggest that the original owners were not a particularly brave set of individuals, so it makes it almost cute that something so cowardly and broken attempts to brave the dying world. Even default knight set has more dignity to it than this poor thing.

                                  There's absolutely nothing wrong with this armor, but it's also 100% the official newbie uniform of DS3. Just like the Alva armor in DS2 and the Drake Sword in DS1.

                                        I used this set for my Reaper build. Dark Great Scythe and dark miracles. Looked better then the dark wraith's set to me. I felt like it really brought it all together.

                                            The armor of choice for pro players. looks ultra badass with pkcs and feels very satisfying when dropping dung pie on casuls after owning them.

                                                  It’s a shame that this armor is associated with trash casuals who barely know how to play the game. It’s fairly viable armor and looks pretty cool.

                                                    I've been using this armor for... Quite a while, actually (since my first ng) and I recently tried to mix it with other sets, for now I've only stopped for 2 pieces (helm with the billed mask and torso with the fallen knight) but i can't choose any gauntlets nor trousers, so do you guys have an idea ?

                                                      Fallen Knight Helm and Chest with Sorcerer Pants and Gloves or Pyromancer Wraps. imo the earliest decent light-medium setup offering all round protections and resistance.

                                                        Canonically the armor of people who don't accept death with honor, and instead choose to flee (Disconnect)

                                                          It is a metaphor, "dampened and indelibly stained with the misery of flight" - so it's just shame of being a coward what is it stained with.

                                                                Though of a noticeably different color, the Lothric Knight Helm can fit quite well with this armor if you're going for a unhooded version

                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                  This is a worn down black and gold version of the standard Knight set. Look at the inventory pictures for each piece and compare them, they are the same models, even the knives on the belt are the same. The gold lines on the helmet match perfectly with the gray lines on the Knight helmet. The pants are the same except the armor is removed and there are ropes tied on it, the gauntlets are the same too.

                                                                  I'm guessing this armor was originally made for a higher tier of knights from the same place the standard knight armor came from, and has obviously seen considerable use(and peeing).

                                                                  • Anonymous

(Look at the shield it's very similar to Hawkwood's shield, the image is labeled as NPC: Deserter in the book and Hawkwood himself is absent from the Design Works Book)

                                                                      • Anonymous

When the Warriors of Sunlight were hunted down along with their king for allying with dragons, Drakeblood Knights (worshipers of dragons) were hunted down as well, which caused them to cloak their recognizable armor and flee.

                                                                                • Anonymous

Since heavy armor is s**t, this is often the best option until you find your own fashion or you need a specific resistance. This armor deserves love, not hate.

Additionally, it's literally sitting out in the open so you can't really miss it. So of course everyone and their mothers wear it.

The gold engravings on black armor are a shared trait, plus the left pauldron looks similar. On the Fallen Knight set, the armor on the legs has been discarded, which accounts for that difference. The rest of the differences can be explained by the Abyssal corruption/bloating.
