Drakeblood Set is an Armor in Dark Souls 3.

Armor of the Drakeblood Knights, worshippers of the blood of dragons. The red cloth is said to symbolize their yearning for blood.

Dragon worship has captured the hearts and minds of warriors across the lands for many ages.
Perhaps such warriors are attracted to doctrines of few words.

Location/Where to Find

Notes and Tips

  • At Archdragon Peak, the Man-Serpent Summoners will summon several different enemies- one of them wears the Drakeblood set and wields a Drakeblood Greatsword. Get a summoner to summon this enemy, then kill it. He will drop his greatsword.
  • This armor seems to be used in Dark Souls 2 DLC Crown of the Sunken King by Black Drakeblood Knights, led by Sir Yorgh.
  • The cape's upper part often clips through the armor.

      "This armor seems to be used in Dark Souls 2 DLC Crown of the Sunken King by Black Drakeblood Knights, led by Sir Yorgh." What the ***** do you mean "seems to be". That's where it came from. It's not like it was created in Dark Souls 3 and then they retroactively added it to Dark Souls 2's Sunken King DLC. What idiot writes this crap?

        I just found this armor by accident without knowing about it beforehand. That's why I came to this page, to find out what triggered it. I've played about 1,000 hours of DS3. I didn't think there was anything I didn't know about at this point. I found it by doing Arch Drag Peak on NG+ before I went to Dark FLS. This armor is so sick!

          Incredibly well-rounded defense + moderate weight + hella good fashun souls = best armor. Just 24 VIT + Havel's ring lets you wear the whole set, carry a claymore and medium shield, and wear 3 units of rings while staying under 70%.

            It's a shame the arms are so screwed up on the model. There's these huge gaps in between your arms and the torso, it looks awful. They should've fixed it.

              Ironic that this is the armor of a young lad, Mule, from the Midland defense forces. Introduced in Berserk Chapter 23.

                This is sooooo much Dark Souls. Because how the f**ck am I supposed to know about that armor set? What in the world would make me come back to that shrine at Oceiros's bonfire after finishing Archdragon Peak? xD

                  Love the set, but I'm still not a huge fan of the "caped" chest pieces (when fashions Souls is life haha)- I replaced chest plate for Lorian or Black Knight and a couple other variations too.

                    Judging by the amount of players that want this set mule'd and people who get summoned with this set...10 Sep 2016 03:52  

                    It seems to be a fan favorite.

                      Drakeblood head, chest, and legs with shadow arms + sunset shield + any type of katana. You are a Blade, royal protector of the Emperor and hunter of Dragons. May Talos guide you.

                              I don't think you even need to be on NG+, you just need to kill one of the Drakeblood Knights that the dragon priest summons after the Ancient Wyvern fight, then it'll be back on the body that gives you the path of the dragon gesture.
