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.

        40/91 armor sets in this game are recycled from older souls games. That's almost 50%. That sums up DS3 as a whole, an unoriginal game too obsessed with "paying homage" and "referencing" the older souls games to be it's own unique experience.

        Even worse, the armor sets that are actually unique all look like dogsh*t because they're all torn to shreds or worn out. The only armor in the entire game that looks clean and new is probably Herald Set and Solaire's Iron set.

          Why is that they did not put many knightly looking armors? they just put armor that looks like socks and t shirts piled up on you am i right?

            The comment below me is disliked by blind miyazaki fanboys who can't get over a day without following the stupid trend of "hate ds2 cuz miyazaki wasn't there".

                I don't get what they refer to with "fashion souls" when almost every cloth is as tattered as master's attire

                  While I'm fine with the hyperarmor system in this game, they definitely should have given heavier armor much higher absorption so they could actually be functional. If the Smough set had near 50% absorption in physical, it would actually be useful for something other than fashion.

                    You are only permitted to wear any type of apparel, be it armor or clothing, in both Dark Souls and real life if you exclusively use the Broken Straight Sword!

                      Most of the armor is so grey and blandish looking in this game. I miss the vibrancy from the first two games :/

                        idk why i'm doing this but my top 5 armors based on fashion (my opinion).
                        1. Iron Dragonslayer set
                        2. Outrider Knight Set
                        3. Dragonslayer's set (Ornstein's Set)
                        4. DrakeBlood set
                        5. Lothric Knight set
                        Honorable Mention: Ruin set

                          Ds3 easily has the least amount of interesting armor sets for fashion souls. Not saying what they DO have is bad (black hand set with alva helmets is killer for royal knights or spellblades) but most of what it has is usually from the big boys, the bosses, and a scarce collection from elite enemies in the game, lothric and cathedral knights or the jailers for example. I miss some of the more bog standard stuff that still looked cool like ds2's royal soldier set maughlin sells you. Missed opportunities I say... ifnonly half the enemies weren't wearing a ****ing torn up dirty bed sheet.

                            How Useful Is Armor?
                            Like Is It Critical That I Use A High Damage Absorption Armor Or Can I Just Use My Fashion?
