Location/Where to Find

Notes and Tips

  • In the games inital release, the red plume featured on Ornstein's helm was not present when the player wore it, just like the previous games. This lead many player to believe that the red plume was Ornstein's hair. However, due to a fan petition the plume has been added in the 1.11 patch.
  • Possesses a valuable lightning resistance and moderate weight for its seemingly heavy look

      My only problem with this armor are the shoulder pads. Ornstein had them lifted, why can't we have it too?

        So, i little wild thought i ll just throw out there:

        Faraam's knights were also known as lion knights, but this armor resembles a golden lion, maybe different from the one decipted in faraam set.

        We could theorize said lion would be the lion of forossa, a land mentioned in ds2 as a kingdom that venerated a god of war.

        if said god of war was the sun's first born, then maybe it's true crime was not the alliance with dragons, but rather an attempt to bring new beings similar to them. Ds1 s sanctuary guardian could be what faraam created in his early attempts, as a great flying lion capable of wielding the gods's lightning. Of course, it's possibly a failed experiment as such being was closer to a demon than a dragon (a barbed scorpion tail, goat-like horns and glowing red eyes, wich has nothing to do with a feline's anatomy. Thus, decipting a vicious beast with no place in the world).

        If ornstein were truly to become the king of the storm, i'd say the resulting being was a more successful attempt. Not to create a dragon, but a descendant of such race with slight differences: the wings have feathers instead of membranes, the skin is covered not only in scales, but also in fur. And distinctive horns wich are twisted like a goat, rather than the traditional straight or curved horns of a dragon.

        These details led me to think that what ornstein truly transformed in was what the easterners called an oni. Despite having the form of a dragon, it has some characteristics more akin to demons. Wich would give sense to what the japanese word "oni" refers to, as such creatures aren't demons per-se, but rather other beings derivated from them.

        What i just said might just be a pile of bullsht, but i'll juat throw it over here.

          Can someone suggest a good headpiece to go with this set?
          The lothric knight helm looks good but the color is off

              Just making an observation, but Ornstein's name is "Griffith", which means"Strong lord" Welsh, or as a Griffin, which is a legendary creature that has the head of an eagle, and body of a lion. Also Ornstein's gender is only confirmed with the Leo ring description in these games, which is very strange since it's not on his armor or anywhere else. Lastly, Ornstein's hair Might actually be red, as it was patched in in 3, but was never there in 1 or remastered, so We can make the educated guess that his hair is red.

                This, Havel's, Fallen k***ght or Artorias' set is what almost every ganker wears. Not saying that they are bad for fashion or sets in general.

                    bet fashion souls is the nameless king's crown or ringed knight hood, dragonslayer chest piece, lorian's leggings, and the dragonslayer gauntlets

                      This armor suffers the same drawbacks as Havel's for fashion. Looms great, but the tassels are W A Y too big and the pauldrons need to stick out more to really shape the armor better than this

                        Am I the only bothered by the fact that the teeth in the helmet have slots in between as if to see out, but your character's eyes only go up to mid-neck?
