Location/Where to Find

Notes and Tips

  • The Dragonscale Set is aesthetically very similar to the Great Lord's set, the armor made purchaseable from Domhnall of Zena after defeating Gwyn, Lord of Cinder in Dark Souls. Noticeable differences are the choice in weapon and added armor and cloth draped over the robes.
  • The lightning defense is ironically low considering that the armor belongs to the son of Gwyn and the boss that wears this set is resistant to lightning. Though it's possible the reason for this could be because pieces of the armor are made of dragon scales, and the dragons are weak to lightning.
  • For some reason, wearing the chest piece at the same time as the Cleric Trousers may result in your character having a large hole in their model where their waist should be

            If you wear the armor (at least, I've noticed this with the chest piece) and then write a message on the ground that incorporates a gesture, the figure in the message at first glance seems to be wearing different armor. However, certain details hint that it is indeed the very same armor; it just appears in the message as though it had never been torn and old. It's kind of like being able to see what NK's garb used to look like back in his glory days. I just thought that was really cool :)

              Ok ok so dragons are vulnerable to lightning and this set is made of dragonscale. It is understandable why this set is weak to lightning

                Maybe the boss himself is resistant to lightning because duh so he wears armor that doesn’t bother enhancing that resistance as it would be pointless. Or as a taunt at his father.

                  Anyone willing to trade the set with me on ps4. I can't beat the boss and i want to make a new character with the set.

                    I wore the armor and leggings with the slave knight hood and exile gauntlets and it made me look like a badass executioner. [T]/

                      Looks badass as all hell with Lorian's pants and the Black Knight Gauntlets. Any ideas for a helmet to wear with it?

                        For the lightning defence to be low seems pretty obvious to me.
                        After all, this armour is made with dragon scales, weak against lightning and resistant to fire.
                        The lightning defence of the boss is probably due to the fact that the Nameless King is Gwyn's son (not confirmed), who created the lightning in first place. (Sorry for my poor english)

                          The Shrine Handmaid isn't selling this armor for me. I've beat the Nameless King and haven't killed her or changed game cycle or anything. Do I also need to have any particular umbral ash given to her, or am I just *****ed?

                              I'm ten feet tall and bullet proof, for my actions do not disturb or distract me. My level is incredible, and I'm out of your league.

                                It says there that the nameless king was an ALLY to the ancient dragons but on his weapon it says that he was actually one of the first dragon slayers. Many people have even said that he was actually Gwyn's firstborn but why would gwyns firstborn be an ally to the ancient dragons and also be a dragonslayer? Did he betray the dragons just like Seath or what?
