Xanthous Set is an Armor in Dark Souls 3.

Crown made in imitation of a divine creature of Oolacile, land of ancient, golden sorceries. (Crown)

Yellowish overcoat covering a band of brass medallions. (Overcoat)

Yellowish gloves. (Gloves)

Yellowish trousers. (Trousers)

Xanthous clothing is the mark of a researcher of lost sorceries, and the oversized crown is emblematic of their work. Such a curious pursuit is surely nothing to be ashamed of.

Location/Where to Find

Notes and Tips

  • The set is drastically different visually compared to its apperance in Dark Souls 1 and 2. The crown is now shaped like a mushroom and is slightly reminiscent of the Monk's Head Collar from Demon's Souls. The rest of the set also now leaves the wearer fully clothed.

        Crown is imitation of Elizabeth?01 Jul 2016 14:39  

        The crown looks like Elizabeth the mushroom from DS1's dlc "Artorias of the Abyss". It also mentions it was made to imitate a divine creature of Oolacile and Elizabeth is pretty unique as a being.

          Leonhard mentions that "Yellowfinger" may see camaraderie in Rosaria's Fingers, most likely referring to the wearer of this set, as it drops from the worm in Rosaria's Bedchamber.

            The counterparts from the other games were really all about how comical they are. This set actually looks baller as *****. Even the crown. But that chest piece, ***** that is beautiful.

              Is it weird that I actually think this set looks pretty good?27 Apr 2016 21:29  

              This set by itself looks really good, even with the crown because it looks more natural and subdued than the old bright yellow, perfectly oval crown. Also dat overcoat.

                One of the best chestpiece I've come across18 Apr 2016 04:08  

                Sure, not everyone like yellow overcoat but aesthetically wise, the fashion meter is off the chart imo. Grab any knight set that match the chestpiece and you'll look like a nomad knight from far away. Not to mention the Swordspear has similar colour scheme with it.

                  I got this set after killing an invader wearing this it (didn't write down his name, too much action at the time) on Road of Sacrifices in my first playthrough. He invaded near the first Big Crab.
