Getting the Cuckoo Knight Set
To obtain the Cuckoo Knight set in Elden Ring, players must locate and farm Cuckoo Knights. These are humanoid enemies that are found patrolling the Bellum Highway in North Liurnia.
Players can reach this area using two routes. First, they can get the Academy Glintstone Key from Dragon Smarag’s island, located west of Raya Lucaria. This key will give you access through the Portal of the South Raya Lucaria Gate to get to the Main Academy Gate in the north.
They can also use the Portal to the East Raya Lucaria Gate to get to the start of the Bellum Highway.
On the other hand, the Tarnished can also reach the Bellum by finishing a cliffside platforming challenge along the ridge west of the Mausoleum Compound in Elden Ring. This compound can be reached by traveling north from the Church of Vows through the Ruined Labyrinth.
Farming Cuckoo Knights
In total, there are five farmable Cuckoo Knights along the Bellum Highway. Start from the East Raya Lucaria Gate Site of Grace, and follow the road heading north until you see the first large chunk of fallen rubble.
The first Cuckoo Knight will be mounted atop a horse patrolling a nearby area. Keep in mind that the horse and knight have separate health. After slaying the knight, head to the west to encounter another mounted knight near a flock of sheep.
Head north after taking care of the second Cuckoo Knight to find the third farmable knight.
Now, ride southeast to go back to Bellum Highway. After passing the treeline, head northwest to find the fourth mounted Cuckoo Knight riding through the forest. The final farmable knight in Elden Ring stands atop the massive, curved piece of debris in the middle of the road.
This mob is slightly trickier to farm since several guard minions accompany it. Once the fifth knight is dead, return to the Site of Grace at the start of the road and repeat the process.
After several runs, players should be able to obtain the entire set, which includes the Cuckoo Greatshield, Partisan Spear, and Knight’s Greatsword.
