  • 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.

      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

            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.

                    Really nice outfit achieved by wearing this set except with the wolf knight chestpiece replacing the dream armor

                        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.

                                Faraam Helmet, Drakeblood Armor, Drakeblood Guantlets, and Lothric Knight Leggings.
                                This is one of my favorite armor combos
