Firelink Set is an Armor in Dark Souls 3.

Armor of the Soul of Cinder, a deific manifestation of the Lords of Cinder, who linked the First Flame.

It resembles a knight's armor, but bears hideous burns and contortions...

..A mishappen crown can be seen upon its rear. (Helm) /
..taking the shape of a deathly ribcage. (Chest)

It exists as a symbol of the great Lords and the noble act of linking the fire, though it is no more than an empty husk. (Chest, Gauntlets, Leggings)

Location/Where to Find

  • Buy from Shrine Handmaid in Firelink Shrine for 56000 souls after defeating Soul of Cinder or after defeating the boss as a phantom in another player's world. 
  • You do not need to enter New Game Plus to be able to buy it, but it will still be available.

  • Much like the Elite Knight Set and the Faraam Set from the previous games, this armor set is considered to be the flagship armor of Dark Souls 3, as it appears in the box art, and is featured as the red knight figurine of the collector's edition and in the Funko Pop line.

      My favorite set. But where are folks getting the idea that it's the Great Lord set fused with the Elite Knight set. I've rocked both and I do not see it at all. Doesn't look like a robe, doesn't look like the Great Lord anklets. Now Nameless King - he's totally rocking updated Gwyn fashion with a war god twist.

        WARNING: The Leggings for this set induce "baby leg syndrome". Be sure to have your Legs maxed out in the Build Detail tab of the character creator, or else you'll look like you skipped Leg Day, Week, Month, and Year.

          I think FROM intentionally made this armor mediocre. It just goes to show that even if it's the last boss's armor set, it's not the habit that makes the monk.

          • Insultingly weak.24 Sep 2016 16:56  

            Come on, From! This set is supposed to represent all Lords of Cinder, grand and mighty beings capable of using themselves to link the First Flame! Plus, this set is, most times, the last one to become available in the game, only unlocking after beating the final boss. And what do we receive? A light set that can barely absorb blows (20.7% defense on average). The Knight set beats this in 5 out of 8 damage types. The Knight set! From, please do something whit this crap set.

              Do not use the full set. Use this one :<br/>- Iron Helm<br/>- Firelink Chest<br/>- Firelink Gauntlets<br/>- Knight Leggings<br/>- (Bonus : Have a bow so you can have a quiver full of arrows, definitely is a plus for the look)<br/>While being Embered (a bit too even if you're not), this gives you a "on-fire" cool looking effect, which definitely fits with the RP of the game, since Fire is one of the main themes. For the weapons, I would suggest :<br/>- Dragonrider Bow (Good damage, the color is black and kinda fits)<br/>- Dark Sword (buff it with fire, and you'll look like a fire warrior)<br/>- Profaned Greatsword (its charged R2 and its Weapon Arts sets it on fire)<br/>- Shield of Want (the colors definitely fits with the armor, and the Lore behind the shield fits with the "fire" theme).

                As a tradition for my first characters in EVERY Souls game, this is the armor of choice of my first DkS3's all about fashion souls, in this case and for that matters....i love the looks of it

                • Stop saying gay04 Jul 2016 14:22  

                  Grow up and be mature enough to say the armor looks ugly and maybe if you feel like give the people who do like it looks a reason why you don't.

                    honestly is so *****ing cool. if you take a second to look at all the little details on this set, it's ridiculous. plus as neat as the wolf set looks, with this set you're not filling some dead man's armor; this unique set is all yours.

                    • It also resembles...01 Jun 2016 10:07  

                      Yhorm's armor, especially the overall chest piece; ribcage-like armor, clothing tassets, neck to pelvis loincloth(?), no armor around the waist area and have a scarf-like clothing.
