How To Get The Banished Knight Set In Elden Ring

This guide will look at where to find the Banished Knight Armor Set in Elden Ring and farm all of its pieces with ease.

The Banished Knight Armor Set is a heavy-weight armor set in Elden Ring. This armor is worn by knights who were forced to abandon their homes because of either misfortune or misdeed.

The Banished Knight armor set offers superior stats in terms of Resistance when it comes to being compared to the rest of the armor sets in Elden Ring.

Moreover, you will encounter two variants of the Banished Knight Armor set in the game. These pieces of this armor set will be either Standard or Altered. Although both the variants of the Banished Knight set aren’t identical, the differences aren’t that big. As for the drop rate, it has been reported that the drop rate for each piece of armor set in Elden Ring is only 3%. So you might have to kill many of those Knights to get the complete set. However, you can increase your chances of getting this armor by using items like Silver-Pickled Fowl Foot or Scarab Talisman.

You can get Banished Knight Armor Set by killing the Banished Knight at Stormveil Castle, Crumbling Farum Azula, Cathedral of Dragon Communion, or the Castle of Sol. 

Every time you defeat the knight, it will most likely drop one or two armor pieces. These include the Banished Knight Helm, Armor, Gauntlets, and the Greaves in Elden Ring.

Apart from those you can also get three additional items for taking down these knights along with the armor set. These will include weapons like the Banished Knight’s Halberd, Banished Knight’s Shield, and Banished Knight’s Greatsword.

In this guide, we will assist you in finding the Banished Knight Armor set along with its stats and upgrades in Elden Ring.
