Hey wasn't it always like this: the elite knight set is stronger than the normal knight set? Or almost the same but not so heavy? I don't remember, but in ds1 was it one of my fav armor sets. Cause it wasn't so heavy and had good phys resistances and good elemental resistance. Especially for its weight and Knight armor sets overall. Now it's still not so heavy than the normal knight set but almost the same - helmet and boots are even heavier. the whole knight set is maybe 2 or 3 kg or pounds heavier, that's almost nothing. (but 2,5%) BUT Elite is weaker about 1-2 points in every section. I mean helmet, gloves and so on. And normal,thrust, slash, strike. Overall the whole set is about 4-6 points weaker. Only the elemental resistance is a bit better - except fire (almost the same) Poison, curse and freeze is almost the same, only bleed is 20 points better at the elite) Now I'm a bit disappointed.. But maybe I remember wrong. And now I have higher stats so I can wear better armor. (mix between black Knight and normal knight helmet and gloves) - fashion always counts ;) As beginner and early set would be great. But in first run - it's only really good if you kill anri at the first time you see her, otherwise it isn't soo good cause you get it too late. Except you use gs and don't have high vit, for example atm I have 18, and I can use hollowslayer and full elite set (doesn't compare so much cause I don't prefer to play gs but I think it is the best gear with 18 vit atm) - so it's good. Otherwise - meh pls correct me if I'm wrong.
