      "Of the three Archdeacons of the Deep, one cast off his white crown and left the cathedral to stand by Aldrich": Archdeacon McDonnell"?

      "one stood over Aldrich's casket, with hope that he would return one day": deacons of the deep?

      "Of the Archdeacons of the Deep, one attended to Rosaria, Mother of Rebirth, whom he deemed a goddess": Morne? (Archdeacon is like two steps down from archbishop),

        blanket souls: Grab the garb. That is all you need. Get the best looking knight helmet, greaves, and gauntlets you own and wear those with the garb. Blanket knight. Looks cozy.

          Important question: Why is this the one set of boss armor the Shrine Handmaid doesn't recover to sell to you? Hell, she even recover's Wolnir's crown from the ABYSS to sell, but this set just lies where it falls, leaving you to go get it yourself.

            The Way of White turned into the Aldrich Faithful? my gosh... I cannot believe PATCHES, a backstabbing cowardly (terrible) liar, was right about Clerics... well, maybe a lucky guess, but still a surprise considering how dumb he his most of the time trying to BS us with blatant lies. :P

              If you're looking for gloves the evangelist gloves work pretty well with this set. The arch deacon must not get their hands dirty.

                I didn't need to rest at the bonfire to make it spawn. I killed the boss, looked in my inventory to see what the doll thing was that the boss dropped, and when I closed my inventory I saw the loot ready to be picked up, it had the deacon set. I don't think it was there immediately, unless I just didn't notice it right away when the boss died.

                  Good stats for such a light armor set, surprisingly high poise, so it would be a good caster set, but it's just a smidgen too heavy to stay below 30% equip load, unless you go completely without melee weapon (or use Demon's Scar I guess, but that's not so readily available when progressing through the game for the first time).

                    By the pope, wear this holy garb and no heathenous follower sabre will ever spoil thy human hide. These clothes are graced with a power so magnificent, not even miyamoto may nerf thy apparel to*****. Rather, thy non-repenting demon scum that require the foul taste of the follower sabre will feel the wrath of 1,000 nerfs to Smoldering Lake and back. DEUS VULT, and repent. For the day of judgement comes, and those who will not repent will suffer like the follower sabre heathens are

                      I don't like the colors, it would have looked better in the bluish purple the decons in Aldrich's chamber wore. Least then it would have looked nice to work with in jeryrigging a Hexer look and/or a Dark Spell caster.

                      Other then that, it's a really awesome looking outfit for fashion Souls and dark sorcery resistance.

                      On mine, I replace the crown with the Dark Wraith Mask and use the maidens's a work in progress, still trying out different ideas. What I really need is the warlocks mask from DS2, then it look really cool!

                        "While wearing the Archdeacon set, the pyromancer deacons in the Cathedral of the Deep will not attack you." THIS is'nt correct.
