If you have encountered Black Knife Assassins in Elden Ring, then you know how dangerous these bosses are. Agile and lethal, they can quickly make short work of an unprepared player. One of the most distinct features of these assassins is their unique armor. The good news is that there is a way for you to also obtain and wear this armor set. While it is – naturally – a light armor set, it won’t provide much in the way of protection, but it is a great armor to use if you are running a DEX-based character. Of course, you need to know where to look for it first. To help you get it, our Elden Ring Black Knife Armor Set Location guide is here to tell you the exact spot where it is, so that you don’t have to waste your time looking for it all over the map.
How to Get Black Knife Armor Set in Elden Ring
To get the entire Black Knife Armor Set, you will need to go to Ordina, Liturgical Town. But, in order to do this, you will need to use the Grand Lift of Rold to reach this area. And to get this lift working, you will also have to find both pieces of the Haligtree Medallion. This can take a lot of work, so you shouldn’t expect to simply make a beeline for this armor set early in the game.
Once you arrive at Ordina, look for the Black Knife Armor on a dead body underneath an alcove there. We’ve marked the exact location in our screenshot gallery down bellow. This will get you the full Black Knife Armor Set, which consists of: Black Knife Hood, Black Knife Armor, Black Knife Gauntlets, and Black Knife Greaves. The armor is very unique-looking, with a translucent cape giving it an especially ominous vibe. We’d like to thank YouTuber Axiom for their really helpful video which we used to get the screenshots for this guide.
Very early in your exploration of Elden Ring world you will find out that you need to prepare your character for different tasks. You'll need to learn how to use Ashes of War, how to two-hand weapons, or use magic spells during the course of your adventures. Many secrets are also waiting for you, such as, a hostile NPC Sellen that doesn't let you see her shop, an invisible man in a bush, or a huge turtle with a bell that lets you duplicate some very important items.
