 Trivia

  • This armour set was introduced into the Souls series by Dark Souls 2, being the official armour set of Bearer of the Curse
  • The ending line of the armor's description, "...gone beyond death," is a reference to the tag line used for advertising Dark Souls 2; "Go beyond death"
  • There is an overwhelming amount of evidence pointing to the possibility that Faraam is the true identity of the Nameless King.

      Faraam Helm + Undead Legion Armor + Gundyr’s Guantlets + Gundy’s Leggings = Fashion AND excellent stats.

        Not a fan of the helmet design, but this is undoubtedly one of the best armor sets in the game mechanically. Reasonable weight and solid, balanced defenses all-around.

          Absolute Chad set. Perfection. Get the FUGS and Shield of Want to get a full DS2 look. Bonus points for carthus flame arc or charcoal pine resin/bundle.

            Faraam helm and torso, slave knight gauntlets, and elite knight legs. Looks better than the full set, imo

            • Anonymous

              Damn it looks nice, definitely a glowup from the DS2 ingame version. Looks closer to the trailers and cover art. Wish they added Heide Knight set too

              • Anonymous

                definitely better model (sad about the neck tho) and better textures but not going well with cloth physic in dark souls 3

                • Anonymous

                  In my opinion one of the coolest looking armor sets in the series. The appearance in DS3 is based off of what was in the DS2 trailer, which looks great. Not a fan of the exposed neck tho.

                    Lol, judging by the comments it seems as if people think that the wiki is a trading page for filthy casuls and/or people who dont want to shell out a few bucks for dlc

                      When the description talks about those who have "gone beyond death" is that implying that both the Aldia ending was canon AND that the undead curse can be thwarted?

                          i love this armor but it looks weird without the broad shoulders your character has in ds2, also why does it have to reveal your character’s neck? i don’t want to know that there’s a human under that armor, just let me believe i am the faraam armor set

                            the joke is there is not a single evidence that Faraam is the NK. Only fanfiction. It's even completly bs if we accept the fact that not even the people in Lordran remember his name anymore or his most loyal servant. In his own home land! But hey, why listen to the voice of reason here, right?

                              I have 10 VIT, and 5 more from the Prisoner's Chain. With the Havel's Ring, using by build (AGS, offhand Rapier + Caestus), I have exactly 69.9% Weight rating with the highest poise possible for me (no DLC). This provides a niche use for this armour for me, hopefully others can benefit from this knowledge. Rings: Havel's, Leo's, Wolf's +1, and Prisoner's Chain.

                                I mean literally everybody knows this fashion already but Faraam helm, alva body, and any other armored gauntlets/leggings is quite fashionable

                                  wait, so is faraam the name of the nameless king? the nameless king is the god of war and this set was named after a god of war

                                    Usually, cultures that adopt a deity have a name for it in their own language or culture (Yhave, Jehova, Ala or Jupiter, Zeus and Mars, Ares), and specially with politheistic religions that adopt other deities but already have their own either combine them to create one or add the new one to their one lore, and as we know that both Faraam and Gwyn's firstborn are a god of war and possibly THE god of war for some religions, looking at the helmet adornments that depict a dragonslayer and judging by the Lion theme associated with both, I think Faraam could be the name given by a new religion to either the Nameless King or Ornstein the Dragonslayer or a combination of both mixed through the ages through reimaginations of Gwyn's Firstborn and the workship to Ornstein, which gave birth to the creed and armor of the the Lion Knights of Forossa. The armor itself has a bit of both imo, it has the knightly feel of Ornestein but it's also bulkier and less polished, akin the Nameless King's savagery, more so with the shoulder mane.

                                    To me the most plausible scenario is that when Gwyn's Firstborn was outcasted there was already a cult in his name, the members of this cult might have even been persecuted and those who survived eventually founded Forossa and the name of their god of war eventually developed to Faraam.

                                      It would be cool if, when you wear this armor in front of Nameless King, he would act like fume knight seeing Velstadt and be more aggressive or something. Just a thought.

                                        Nameless is the first son of Gwyn demoted after his alliance with the Archdragons. But don't quote me on that.

                                                for all those knights out there: Equipping the Faraam helm instead of the elite knight helm increases your badass stat by 10-20 points, depending on what armor you are wearing

                                                  DS2 version looks sexier. DS3 version has a better color palette that doesn't look like plastic. Why can't I have both things at once?!

                                                    In my observation, what makes me look fat in this armor is the flat shoulder fur and rounder abdomen. In the DS 2 version, you have fluffier fur, making your shoulder look broader. The breastplate also looks like 2 overlapping pieces of armor which give you a hour glass figure. Stupid sexy Faraam. In this version however, the breastplate has a rounder belly and the fur is lackluster giving you an "O" shape rather than the "V" shape from DS2. Maybe From is actually trying to make Faraam knights look burly for lore reasons as I still think my character looks a bit "fat" with a slim build. What I did was to lower the waist slider (character creation->build details) as much as possible. It will look a bit weird on other armors, but you can have infinite appearance changes anyway.

                                                      Nameless king is the god of war, its actually one of the part of lore which was concieved early, it derives analogy from Greek mythology that is of Ares , also the god of war, revolting against his father Zeus , also the god of lightning....Also his headgear represents a lions mane which all of his followers, be it ornstein or the Faraam knights, try to replicate through armor design or etymologies.

                                                          I'm strongly into fashion souls. Would rather run a mimic cosplay with a club than wear junk just because of the stats. But what the hell am I supposed to do with THIS? Guess the gauntlets have some use but the rest? What should I do with the rest? Some suggestions? Gladiator maybe?

                                                            I'm pretty sure this armor is named after the nameless king boss because he is believed to be a god of war as well. But since his name is the nameless king, a story says that he teamed up with the dragons and his name was expunged from the annals and his deific status was stripped by his father who is a god too, gwyn. I'm 7% sure that the nameless king is Faraam, but even though some say that Sen's Fortress belongs to the Nameless king and that his name is sen. Do you guys think the nameless king is Faraam or Sen?

                                                                This armor is straight up Fett. It has the T-visor and the lore description is a spitting image of what a Mandalorian is. Faraam is a kingdom of warriors who worship a god of war. They have fallen from glory and are now seen mostly roaming the lands as mercenaries. Time to go bounty hunting >;)

It said that the armour set was named after a god of war and the only god of war we know is the firstborn of gwyn. And many people think that the nameless king IS gwyn's firstborn.
