Knighthood Orders are more than just groups of mere knights; they are military organizations that include some of the most versatile and powerful units in the game. In addition, most Orders have a chapter in one of the cities, though some Orders require the player to found a Chapter before being able to be join.

Each order has unique units with different strengths and weaknesses that provide a boon to any army.


You may only join one order at a time. To join a Knighthood Order, you must have at least 500 renown, neutral or positive relations with that Order, and the following indicated amounts of honor. Once you meet these requirements, go to a city or castle where a chapter of the Order in question exists and speak to the knight there. You will then take part in an arena-style trial of arms against three of its knights, with your own equipment.

If you win, you will be accepted as a member of that Order and be bestowed the title of Retainer, the lowest rank in any Order. If you are a vassal or a mercenary captain with a banner you will start at the rank of Squire.

Knighthood Order Required Honor Location
Order of the Dragon 15 Honor Rane, (Ravenstern)
Empire Immortals 10 Honor Janos, (Ethos)
Order of the Ebony Gauntlet 10 Honor (Senderfall), (Avendor)
Lady Valkyries 10 Honor Javiksholm, (Windholm)
Order of the Shadow Legion 10 Honor Cez
Order of the Clarion Call 10 Honor Laria
Order of the Falcon 15 Honor (Falcondark Castle)
Order of the Radiant Cross 15 Honor (Ethos)
Order of the Griffon 20 Honor Must be founded
D'Shar Windriders 10 Honor Torbah, (Nal Tar)
Order of the Silvermist Rangers 10 Honor (Senderfall)
Order of Eventide 20 Honor Singal
Order of the Raven Spear 10 honor Poinsbruk
Order of the Lion 10 Honor Sarleon, (Marleons)
Order of the Dawn 25 Honor Valonbray, (Windholm)
Order of the Phoenix - -
Order of the Shadow Wolves - -

Orders will always have a chapter in the cities shown, but the ones between ( ) will only have a chance of being there. For example, the Valkyries will always have a chapter in Javiksholm and may or may not also have one in Windholm.

While you are able to quit your Order (only if you aren't already leading it), doing so will harm your relations with all the other major Orders (-5) and you will lose honor.

Ranks Edit

Completing Knighthood Order Quests for your Knighthood Order will earn you rank points, and when you reach the sufficient amount required to advance to the next rank, you may speak to your Order's Knight to be promoted.

Rank Requirements Rewards
Retainer 0 Rank Points
Sergeant 30 Rank Points Set of Sergeant's Armor
Squire 60 Rank Points
Knight 100 Rank Points Set of Knight's Armor and Mount
Knight Commander 150 Rank Points Set of Reinforced Knight's Armor and Spirited Mount
Constable 220 Rank Points Set of Lordly Knight's Armor and Champion Mount
Grandmaster 300 Rank Points

Completion of the quest The Order Grandmaster

Order Stronghold and Achievement (+1 Persuasion)

Note: The mount will only be given if the KHO has a mount. If you join the Immortals, don't expect to get any mount.

WARNING: If the order the player joins is the player's own CKHO:

  • You'll be directly promoted to Grandmaster, and be rewarded with the armor, gloves, helmet, boots and mount your CKHO knight has (so if you equipped them with a noldor armor and mount, you'll be given these), but with no modifiers, and only once. (If you raise from Retainer to Constable on a KHO, you'll get Sergeant's armor set, knight's armor set and mount, reinforced knight's armor set and spirited mount, lordly knight's armor set and champion mount (so way more stuff and with great modifiers).
  • As you are rewarded with Grandmaster rank directly, you skip defending against the Snake Cult and then the attack on their fortess, meaning your order won't have a Order Stronghold nor you'll be able to interact with the NPCs inside it (which are really useful).
  • They won't reward you with the Mettenheim Arbalest upon talking to the knight with 350 crossbow proficiency or higher, whilst any KHO would.

Your Own ChapterEdit

Knighthood Orders may be built in castles or towns and are independent of other construction projects. Building a chapter costs 20,000 denars and requires a certain amount of honor; you may also need a certain companion, the personal ownership of a certain city, or a Qualis Gem. You also must have wary (-10) or better relations with the Knighthood Order. You will gain 10 relationship points with the Order.

As of version 3.7, if your relation with the Knighthood Order drops too low, the next time you speak with your town steward they will leave your fief and automatically disband the chapter. You will also lose relationship points (-20) with both minor factions that are the enemies of the order when founding a chapter of a Knighthood Order.

Getting Your Own Knights Edit

Once you have founded a chapter, you can now upgrade units into Knights and Sergeants of the order using Prestige, which is based on how much Renown you have earned over time (at a 1-to-1 conversion rate). The amount of Prestige required to upgrade lowers based on the amount of Honor you have, going to a minimum of 10 per knight and 4 per sergeant. Each order has different units required to turn into their specialized units.

Upgrades to Knight Upgrades to Sergeant
Order of the Dragon Ravenstern Knight Ravenstern Kierguard
Empire Immortals Empire Knight Empire Heavy Infantry
Order of the Lion Sarleon Knight Sarleon Man-At-Arms
Lady Valkyries Valkyrie Maiden Cavalry
D'Shar Windriders D'Shar Noble Cavalry D'Shar Dervish

Upgrading Quality of Knights Edit

When you speak to your steward, you can also improve the quality of your Knights. Each upgrade will increase both strength and the agility of the Order knights by 2 and all weapon proficiencies by 10.  The first upgrade costs 10000 denars and 30 prestige. Each subsequent upgrade increases by 2x for gold and 1.5x for prestige. Sergeants will be unaffected.

Other lords who also use the knights will also gain the benefit of them being upgraded.

Custom Knighthood OrderEdit

Faction-founded order

Vassal-created knighthood order

As of PoP 3.6, the player has the ability to create a chapter of his or her very own custom Order. The requirements are a Qualis Gem, 20,000 denars, 30 honor and a walled fief (town or castle). Rarely, vassals from any kingdom may also create their own Knighthood Orders. 

Once you have selected the option to found the Order, you are given the opportunity to name the order, its knights and sergeants.  

Be warned however, as the knights will start with only leather armour, gloves & boots along with a sword & saddle horse - while the sergeants start with only a tabard, hide boots & a staff. Furthermore, both suffer from terrible stats, with the knights having roughly 250 and the sergeants having merely 100 in everything - far worse than the troops they will have upgraded from. While their stats and equipment can be improved, it will take a lot of money and time for them to become truly effective - once fully improved however, they will be an elite force that both suit your play-style and could potentially go toe-to-toe with even a Noldor Twilight Knight

Units required to upgrade into your Knights and Sergeants depends on your faction's culture. As a king, if you change your culture, the units will change to whichever culture you have chosen.

  • Pendor: Pendor Knights and Pendor Man-At-Arms
  • Sarleon: Sarleon Knights and Sarleon Man-At-Arms
  • Ravenstern: Ravenstern Knights and Ravenstern Kierguards
  • Fierdsvain: Valkyries and Fierdsvain Armored Axemen
  • D'Shar: D'Shar Noble Cavalry and D'Shar Warrior
  • Empire: Empire Knights and Empire Armored Pikeman

Version 3.7 adds the option of changing the gender of your knighthood order. It does not affect the requirements for upgrading. You are also able to upgrade the quality of the knights through your steward like the established Knighthood Orders.

Training Edit

One companion can be assigned on a mission to train them to boost their skills for one to four weeks, during which time the companion leaves your party. Each day, your Knights and Sergeants get a chance to raise their skills to your Companion's value. The most important skill the companion must have high is training, as it will be decisive on how much your Knight and Sergeant will improve, but these will never get higher than the companion stats, skills and proficiencies.

Equipment Edit

Better weapons, armor and steeds can be purchased for the Order, but at an extremely hefty cost often ranging in the hundreds of thousands. When replacing equipment though, a third of the old equipment's value is discounted from the new equipment's cost. Your steward's trade skill affects the final price you will pay for the equipment.

Additionally, a substantial amount of time is required before all of the members of the Order are outfitted with such equipment, usually in months. Note that the strength requirements of equipment applies to your order troops, items that your Order troops are unable to equip due to strength requirements do not appear in the equipment selection screen until they meet the requirements. Furthermore, items such as Noldor equipment are Custom Knighthood Order Unlockable Equipment that have special requirements that must be satisfied to unlock them.
