      I wish there was a "lesser black knife set" to make the player able to cosplay those invisible lesser black knife assassins

      • Anonymous

        Another benefit for fashion souls here is that the Black Knives are all female, so this armour is gonna fit if you want your character to have a less bulky silhouette.

        Plus it's one of the few gauntlets that has claw tipped fingers. So yes, edgy af.

        Colours also match perfectly with the Moonlight Greatsword when it's not buffed, since it has a faint teal undertone.

        But that also means you literally won't be able to match it with almost anything else in the game unless you're colourblind or just don't care about the fashion.

          Wish it didn't have the big goofy pauldrons, otherwise I think the armor looks really nice. And the silence ability outweighs the pauldrons for me.

          • Ah, movement in water pools is also silent, from what I observed. My favorite set so far, been playing a stealth character is very funny in a soulsborne. The Black Knife is very badass, and a full Black Assassin Cosplay makes the Mimic Tear almost a Black Knife Tiche twin.

            • This made my character movement so silent that it's giving me headache. After 140 hours hearing the cling clang at every roll, this is kind unsettling.

              I feel like it's making even Torrent silent. I've been jumping R2 almost any mob from Torrent one inch away them.

                Could anyone with a set they aren't using please drop trade me this set so I can have it early? If so let me know and we can message on Xbox!

                • The chest piece's cloak effect bugs out the Mimic Veil, causing your character to be fully visible. It looks really funny. Especially if you go to Raya Lucaria and get the cage one

                    So this armor seems to negate frostbite? Blessed dew talisman equipped with this armor and you take no damage after your bar is maxed out.

                      If I see you wearing this I'm going to automatically assume there is 14 empty Monster cans next to you and your waifu pillow

                        Don't know if anyone else is having this issue so I'm gonna leave a comment anyway just in case. As of 1.04 (at least for me as I am unable to find confirmation or denial of others having this issue as of yet) the chest is bugged causing immediate CTD and character corruption upon equip. I was able to replicate this on multiple characters thanks to back-ups.

                        • If you want to hit poise breakpoints, have decent reduction, but still cosplay an assassin: try black knife hood + chest, and fire prelate hands + legs. Exactly 51 poise, 68 with bull goat talisman, so you are hitting both 2 most important breakpoints, still get silenced movement, and it’s kinda hard to tell difference. Looks almost the same.

                            Yo this Chestpiece is a game changer. I hate that term, but it absolutely applies here. You get the drop on pretty much every enemy, which is awesome, but then you also get the buff on attacking enemies you haven't agroed. In Farum Azula I feel like I'm just casually walking around deleting folks. Only downside is... I felt like a jerk when I discovered Iji's burning body surrounded by folks dressed like me.

                              there's quite a few hoods and altered headgear that works with the hooded armor, not to mention fingerprint helm

                              • Found a couple more helms that work with the chest piece to keep the cloak up.

                                Nox Monk Hood (Altered)

                                Nox Swordstress Crown (Altered)

                                these 2 both look great with the armor as well.

                                  weird finding while I was looking at helmets to pair with this set is that the Eccentric hood does still have the black knife hood over it when its altered. Not sure if this works with other helmets

                                    Got this this cool set. It is great that steps are silenced. Can anyone explain how to make this invisible shifts and movements? For me it is still the same somersault even when the whole set is equiped :(

                                      The unseen form spell does not seem to visually appear when this set is equipped. I need to test with a player to see if it appears on their side

                                        beginning of the game: wear the same armour for 30 hours

                                            idk if this is supposed the be a thing but the cape on the body armor is translucent. Just picked it up after 1.03

                                              the nox swordstress crown (altered), the astrologer hood and the perfumer hood, go under the "invisible" hood as well, not just the fingerprint helm. I'm sure there's a lot more so it's worth testing if you're interested

                                                as another comment says, only the torso piece applies the silent footsteps effect. additionally, if you use "alter garments" to remove the cape from the torso, it no longer silences your footsteps at all.

                                                  As far as i know the fingerprint helmet is the only helmet that can go 'under' the cowl of the black knife torso.

                                                    Only the body is silenced and you get the full effect from it alone, despite the wiki and other armor piece pages suggesting otherwise. You can simply look at your status bar for the foot icon, run near any enemy in the game that is sound-aggro, or even just turn up your audio to test this yourselves. Dunno why people perpetuate stupid lies here.

                                                      This chest armor is bugged, if you alter it the silent step is removed as well, it only maintains silence when it has the cape :(

                                                        So if they have close ties to Marika, why did Marika want to kill the demigods/her children? To end the cycle of rebirth and have her child be the first to live in Death? He'd become the new Prince of Death and it was her way of defying the Erdtree/Greater Will?

                                                          The ghost cloak doesn't go away if you wear the Bloodsoaked Mask or Fingerprint Helm with the chestpiece. The Fingerprint Helm even shrinks slightly to fit, so it's possible there are more helms that work with the ghost cloak.

                                                          • FUN FACT: the challenge leading to this armor will also have another set of armor. it does not drop in one go you have to farm the female archers around the area. highly suggest you leave the bottom figure untouched but light the rest even if you die the figures will still be activated. there are about 3 archers on roofs and around 1-2 archers on the ground. hunt the ones on the roof unless you wish your character didn't have a stomach. the armor that is farmable from the archers is called Blue Silver.
                                                            in short, start the challenge, run like a mad man and light the three roof figures and save the bottom one for when you are done, kill the three roof archers (the ones on the ground too if you have the guts to do so). if you don't get any part of the armor let the invisible man filet you. go back in repeat the murder of archers, once you get the armor simply light the last figure.
