  • This armour set was introduced into the Souls series by Dark Souls 2, being the official armour set of Bearer of the Curse
  • The ending line of the armor's description, "...gone beyond death," is a reference to the tag line used for advertising Dark Souls 2; "Go beyond death"
  • There is an overwhelming amount of evidence pointing to the possibility that Faraam is the true identity of the Nameless King.

      for all those knights out there: Equipping the Faraam helm instead of the elite knight helm increases your badass stat by 10-20 points, depending on what armor you are wearing

        DS2 version looks sexier. DS3 version has a better color palette that doesn't look like plastic. Why can't I have both things at once?!

          In my observation, what makes me look fat in this armor is the flat shoulder fur and rounder abdomen. In the DS 2 version, you have fluffier fur, making your shoulder look broader. The breastplate also looks like 2 overlapping pieces of armor which give you a hour glass figure. Stupid sexy Faraam. In this version however, the breastplate has a rounder belly and the fur is lackluster giving you an "O" shape rather than the "V" shape from DS2. Maybe From is actually trying to make Faraam knights look burly for lore reasons as I still think my character looks a bit "fat" with a slim build. What I did was to lower the waist slider (character creation->build details) as much as possible. It will look a bit weird on other armors, but you can have infinite appearance changes anyway.

            Nameless king is the god of war, its actually one of the part of lore which was concieved early, it derives analogy from Greek mythology that is of Ares , also the god of war, revolting against his father Zeus , also the god of lightning....Also his headgear represents a lions mane which all of his followers, be it ornstein or the Faraam knights, try to replicate through armor design or etymologies.

              Faraam Helmet, Drakeblood Armor, Drakeblood Guantlets, and Lothric Knight Leggings.
              This is one of my favorite armor combos

                I'm strongly into fashion souls. Would rather run a mimic cosplay with a club than wear junk just because of the stats. But what the hell am I supposed to do with THIS? Guess the gauntlets have some use but the rest? What should I do with the rest? Some suggestions? Gladiator maybe?

                  I'm pretty sure this armor is named after the nameless king boss because he is believed to be a god of war as well. But since his name is the nameless king, a story says that he teamed up with the dragons and his name was expunged from the annals and his deific status was stripped by his father who is a god too, gwyn. I'm 7% sure that the nameless king is Faraam, but even though some say that Sen's Fortress belongs to the Nameless king and that his name is sen. Do you guys think the nameless king is Faraam or Sen?

                    Didn't like it since the first DS2 trailer. Helmet looks greek/roman and the armor is way to bulky. Feels alien to the Dark Souls universe.

                        This armor is straight up Fett. It has the T-visor and the lore description is a spitting image of what a Mandalorian is. Faraam is a kingdom of warriors who worship a god of war. They have fallen from glory and are now seen mostly roaming the lands as mercenaries. <br/><br/>Time to go bounty hunting >;)

                          Is it possible that the name of the nameless king boss is Faraam? It said that the armour set was named after a god of war and the only god of war we know is the firstborn of gwyn. And many people think that the nameless king IS gwyn's firstborn.

                            This armor was the perfect fashion souls, but FromSoft had to ruin it with the god***** exposed neck which opens your character's jugular, seriously someone could easily slide a dagger into that gap between the helmet and armor peace, it's a god***** OCD trigger >:(

                              As the armor on the cover of Dark Souls II, I fought hard in that game, and eventually got it. I will get it again in this game too... very soon...<br/>-Lord Hikari

                                Am I the only one that thinks the nameless king might be faraam the god of war that this set was named after?

                                  Go Beyond Death was basically the tagline of the Dark Souls II Ad campaign, the video and descriptions are both callbacks to Dark Souls II.

                                    Why the f**** did they make this armor so fat?23 Apr 2016 22:17  

                                    This was one of the best armor sets in the entire souls series, in Dark Souls 2, now they ruined and it looks fatty and ugly.... sigh...

                                      I'm 99% sure that the guy you need to kill is one of the Black Hand guys near the end of the Grand Archives. He's not an invader.
