Chain Armor Set is an Armor in Dark Souls 3.

Popular due to its ease of crafting, respectable damage absorption, and light weight.

Knights may favor imposing armor, but for warriors on the battlefield, that which keeps them alive is armor enough.

      I like how the description hypes this armor up as being a protective sort that doesn't give two shits about looking good, but then the actual physical absorptions are really mediocre at best except for the slash absorption.

          One of the most different looking sets in the game. Though I really miss the sound of rattling chainmail when moving in it, like in DS1.

            While I do think that they improved its look when designing it, I am displeased with the changes to its defenses. Why is it weak to strike and not thrust now, how does that make any sense?

              why does the metal on DS1 based armors look like silver sprayed plastic? Compare screenshots of these armors from ds1 and 3 and the one from 1 will look better. the metal looks metalic.

                the chain helm can be used for different armor types for giving you a crusader like look. One of the few sets that slightly changes depending if you are male or female.

                  For those who don't know, this set is worn by the Crestfallen Knight of DS1, a role which Hawkwood takes, yet the Knight is missing the helmet.
