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.

      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?

              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.
