  • 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.

      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.

                    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.
