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 was 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.

      The chest piece and maybe the Leggings are good for a Ganondorf cosplay along with the Black knight Greatsword but anyone got gauntlet recommendations or are the ones that come with the set good.

        To those who are saying the method of getting this set is ridiculous, let me remind you, you are playing Dark Souls. It’s a game about exploring every nook and cranny twice. If you can’t do that, then this isn’t your game. And they’ve don’t this before. In the first game you’d have to use similar methods to get Leeroy’s, Beatrice’s and Kirk’s armors. And if you think about it, it makes sense. You get it from the guy who gave you the Path of the Dragon gesture, which of use to get to Archdragon, where you can kill the guy to get the armor to spawn. If you think, you’ll realize something may have happened at the start of this whole endeavor. And to top it all off, the guy who gave you the gesture, where’s the Drakeblood armor.

          Another stupid trigger appearing item. How the hell was I supposed to know this would appear AFTER doing certain things, in a place that has absolutely no incentive to ocme back to after you first explored it? Same with Havel's armor at the Stray Demon's area, wtf dude. Is there a section that lists every item that "suddenly appears" in a place you could totally miss it?

            Replace that trash helmet with Billed Helmet (one that Yuria of Londor wears) and you got yourself super sexy 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.
