        The evangelist hat beats this one in every category. Looks better too, imo. And the faraam pants are way better than assassin pants. Add the morne gauntlets and this armor all of a sudden gets mean, as it’s supposed to

          Comparing Black Hand Kamui's outfit to the mentioned sets and...he is definitely wearing Assassin gloves & leggings, not Black Leather.

          • Anonymous

            You know, instead of arguing whether MattPatt is wrong or right, why don't we just discuss what the unknown Blackhand member used as his weapon. Gotthard uses twin straight swords while Kamui uses daisho (katana and wakizashi), so what could the 3rd be using? Since they're assassins, wouldn't twin daggers be the possible choice? Or maybe twin curved swords?

            • Anonymous

              There already is 3 black hands in the game. Two on top of Lothric with that lion knight, and that dude that has the twin swords and the key to the archives.

                MatPat is wrong 100%...but the theory was awesome and he should do more Dark Sols 3 theories, like why katana users only do that annoying running attack! Seriously, grow a pair!!

                  Its funny how everyone says Matt is wrong, even though all the evidence points to you being the 3rd Black Hand.

                    Hey guys I have a theory, MAYBE they deliberately made the lore of Darks souls as convoluted and mysterious as possible (Like a million other games) to provoke theories and discussions just for the sake of theories and discussions, and that all of you people insulting eachother over these insignificant details is just proof of how EVERYBODY is brave when they sit behind a keyboard.

                    And for God's sake leave Matpat out of it, what he says isn't gospel but that's also no reason to degrade him just because of his personal headcanon, he's a human being too, grow up.

                      Eveyone's whining about Matt's theories.
                      Guys, chill out. Don't accept it if you don't want to.
                      If other people do then that's on them.

                      Dark Souls has always been about piecing together the story for yourself. It's about interpretation, and like many things in real history can be interpreted many different ways.

                      • Something I don't understand is why the developers left Gotthards body blinking? Like they are genius programmers so it would be easier for them to keep his eyes closes instead of coding them to blink every now and then. Maybe they were going to bring him back somehow in a DLC but decided to release something completely different and were too lazy to close his damn eyes. Who knows? All I'm saying is they spend hours, days, weeks, months programming every little detail about this game... Meaning they would have had to spent hours or days or even weeks making a 'dead Gotthard' model to lay down on the ground. Surely they would have noticed his eyes open and blinking? Idk I think too much

                          Don't you get it. Popular people are a BLIGHT! They separate us, curse us, make us fight each other. I personally hate matt when he does a theory as many stupid people spread his "theories" like they are truth just because he is popular. He is like Pewdiepie to people that actually are good at theorising and don't miss out important details. But why do you care!? He's popular. OF COURSE HE'S RIGHT! *Sarcasm*

                          There's a reason we call him a casual.

                            Guys! Stop hating on Matt! It's literally just a THEORY. He's not saying he's right or wrong, and he even stated that most of his theories are just him over analyzing everything that the developers didn't even think about. And Just because Vidya says it's wrong, doesn't mean that he's right either! This entire argument is a matter of favoritism over which YouTuber is our favorite!. Acting childish will help NOBODY. Just stop with the hate to Matt AND Vidya. You guys are really putting your separate communities into a positive light. *NOT*

                            Seriously though, just stop the hate.

                              Everyone is arguing about Mattpats new video and how it's wrong. Read the trivia of the hunters ring. It's not confirmed that the dead body is the third black hand. Only a theory that it is. So stop getting butthurt about a theory when a theory is the only thing you use to argue against him.

                                Just saying that the armor description says it's given to honor hunters who served multiple generations of royalty. I highly doubt that....

                                1. The royal family for generations only ever had 3 immortal black hands through the generations.

                                2. That there aren't a bunch of other Hunters who just haven't met the qualifications of a black hand.

                                I'm sorry, but your critique doesn't make sense.

                                  Before you people think Matpats theory is correct...let me lecture you.

                                  If you read the GEAR properly.
                                  "Attire of hunters known as the King's Black Hands. A black cape covers leather armor, shrouding the wearer in darkness" The hunters ARE the black hands. Let that say in your damn head. There is NO other rank of hunter besides black hand and before you put that "Black Hand was the title established to honor hunters" Notice the "To"'s not given to Honourable's "TO" honor them for their job AKA black hands = hunter.

                                  Okay, you with me? Glad we are on the same page.

                                  Now you find the "Hunter's Ring" on a corpse and considering there are only 3 hunters/black hands, and we already know two, that would mean that the corpse HAD to have been the 3rd hunter/black hand.

                                  Now do you see why Matpats theory is COMPLETELY wrong. Even Vaati agrees for crying out loud. There is NO WAY in HELL that he is a black hand.

                                  Please don't listen to Matpat as he is one of the worst theorist out there which barely puts any proper research into the topics he wishes to "theorise" on. He puts us theorists to shame D:<

                                    Sort of looks like Eileen's set from Bloodborne, just the chest I mean. The general shape of the armor is like that of the Crowfeather Garb and has the long black cape. Also the description of the armor uses the word "hunter" a lot. I'm not saying it's spot on but just reminiscent.

                                      Perhaps it's just me, but the words "Hunters" and "Borne" seem to stick out to me. The later seems especially ham-fisted, and makes me wonder if it's an intentional reference.

                                        head is similar to the Assassin's coif (with the addition of the hat on top)and body is Assassin's armor with a longer you can finish the set with assassin's boots and gloves if you're into looks

                                          If you look carefully, you see that the torso is the assassin's torso but with a cape and a few longer things (don't the name sorry, the thing convering the legs which aren't leggings).

                                            Killed the Blackhand and only got torso and hat, no leggings or gloves. Need confirmation on viability to obtain full set.

                                            • Welp, if there are three, who is the third one, I mean, one of them is dead outside of the Grand Archives and one of them is having a jolly good time ganking with his Faraam homeboy and Sorceress buddy.WHERE IS THE THIRD MAN!? LORE, GOD ***** IT, DON'T DO THIS TO ME!

                                                After killing the gank squad in the Grand Archives most top floor, you can purchase this set through the shrine handmaiden.Pretty late game though.
