      you know if you burned some fingerprints into this armour set it'd start to look really familiar.... Fromsoft likes to echo back don't they?

        This set is depressingly good. I say depressing because you can truly go the entire game in this. It has one of the highest absorption-to-weight ratios of the "Knight-tier" armors, while still ranking 16th for highest Physical absorption (the most common damage type). One of its few drawbacks is its Magic absorption, but that's such a rare damage type that barely matters. By comparison, Smough's Set, the highest absorption set in the game, weighs about 2.5x more (62 vs 25), but only grants ~6.5% more physical absorption. I really love From's games but equally hate their approach to armor.

          Lothric knight helm
          Knight armor
          Silver knight gauntlet
          Silver knight leggings
          This is the best fashion change my mind

            I really want to mix this for fashion souls but all the pieces look so incredibly good I just end up wearing the full set

            Nobody ever expects a parry, though

              Looks good. I prefer Elite Knight Helmet, Knight Armor, Elite Knight Leggings, and Faraam Gauntlets, though. I just prefer the more rounded and simple looks of those whereas the leggings and gauntlets of the Knight Set look too angular and sharp compared to the torso design. Good for other sets, not as good here. Not bad, just not as good. And the Elite Knight Helmet doesn’t make me think my dude must be blinded by his faceplate. Sure a couple tiny eye-slits above the visor, but that’s almost useless.

                Knight set + lothric knight leggings is pretty much the most historically accurate full plate armor look you can get

                  Very definitely one of my favorite armor sets in Dark Souls 3. It‘s easy and early to get for every class, out of all armor sets you can get before Farron Keep it‘s overall the most efficient and it looks very pleasing. The Elite Knight Set can be acquired very early on as well if you decide to kill Anri where you first meet her and buy her armor from the Shrine Handmaiden (yes I know Anri can be both male and female but I choose to believe that most players encountered him/her while playing a male character), it‘s an overall far superior set, but it boasts great fashion and the two sets mesh together incredibly well.

                    My fav armor stil chest peace with nameless knight gauntles and legs and faraam helm just awesome. Indeed the more wandering knight look i've been looking for

                      This set, with the onyx blade, and the sunset shield give you a ostrava of boletaria (demon´s souls) cosplay

                        Before you keep complaining about the look of this armor, remember that we wake up from a broken coffin. It s one of the first armors (and the best to start with) so if you want it clean, go to irithyll and roll over the river.

                          If you aren't a fan of the lived-in look of the armor, just replace the chest piece with herald's, nameless knight, or elite knight

                            I really wanted a clean, full-plate medieval armor set like you see in the museums. Something that a real knight would have worn in the past. The helmet, gauntlets, chestplate, and leg/foot armor are just right, but the hobo pants, scarf, tattered rags, and asymmetrical leather pauldron just killed it. Sure theres drakeblood and lothric knight but the proportions on those sets are just way off

                              So the Firelink set is used for most of the game's artwork and advertisement, but this is fanon... which set do you guys prefer?

                                Half ways through and still wearing most of it. Like the vagabond, realistic, lived in look. Found cool heavier/lighter sets but still the best all around for my bro.

                                  Nameless Knight Set, Heral Set and this are the most fashionable armor in the game... Sadly my favourite was Elite Knight Set but its look fatty

                                  Lothric Knight Set is sexy but heavy as hell

                                    I'm so sorry Elite Knight Set, you were my baby for 2 games, but this set beat you.Knight Set > Elite Knight Set > Alva Set

                                      Works well with deserter helm, or both helm and chest, or thieves hood armor is very light compared to other heavy armor and looks awesome

                                        I absolutely love this armor. It's probably the most historically accurate armor I've ever seen in a Dark Souls game.

                                          This armor looks nice and has great protection, especially for a starting set! I love the scarf/collar thing.

                                            The set's a little OP for starting armor in my opinion. There isn't much that can beat it when it comes to good defense and low weight
