Armor in Dark Souls 3 provides the player with protection against damage, resistance to Status Effects, and adds Poise. Armor pieces may also be mixed and matched for cosmetic purposes. Unlike past installments in the series, armor cannot be upgraded. To view individual pieces of armor please see the Helms, Chest Armor, Gauntlets and Leggings pages.

      I love dark souls remastered because of all of its vibrant colors, cool ideas and awesome areas. That’s something you can’t get in dark souls 3. Every color is a mix of gray and everything is so bleak and boring. I don’t know if it’s just me but I know that the world is ending and all but why is everything so rotten and desgusting. All the armor hyped armor from dark souls remastered are all degraded and their defense is trifling.

        I believe there was a writers Mistake about the Xanthous Set
        In DS1 the Xanthous Set is worn by King Jeremiah, who, judging by his pyromancy and the appearance of his head most likely hails from Izalith
        In DS2 he makes a minor appearance in the Chasm of the Abyss as Pretender to the Xanthous throne with all his usual gear but a smaller head, hinting that it might not be in fact Jeremiah himself
        whereas in DS3 the Xanthous Set is suddenly associated with Scholars of the Sorcery School who study the magic of Oolacile and who seem to mimic Saint Elizabeth with their headwear but oddly the Set is also called Xanthous Set
        that does not really make sense, I wonder if they overlooked this

          I miss my bright yellow Xanthous set from DS1/DS2.
          But it's a personnal opinion. Actually, I really like the fact that everything in this game is rusty, tattered, corroded. It makes sense since the world itself is ending.

            Heavier armours made useless because poise is turned off. And its especially poise that could've made a difference because damage reduction is so lame. Full Havel has only 5% more reduction compared to default knight armor wtf.

              Ds1 had useful armor, ds2 had more fashion souls without making armor useless and in ds3... well, being full havel and being naked it's the same in terms of functionality and in terms of fashion, most armors are recycled/rusty/tattered/ugly and very few have good balance between defense/fashion, like the abyss watchers set.

                I am planning to make an Anti Gank build using the Wolf Knight Great Sword, and I was wondering what armor should I use. I want to use the Artorias armor but I need good defense (I am not saying the Artorias armor is bad for PvP) please any suggestions on armor?

                  I'm confused how the total values for each set's absorptions are calculated. Looking at the black knight set for example, the fire absorptions are: 4.6, 14.1, 3.5, 8.5. Totalled up these equal 30.7. However the total is reported as 27.6. The values reported for the full set are consistently lower than the totals of the pieces added up, and only for absorptions, not resistances. What am I missing?
