Firelink Set is an Armor in Dark Souls 3.




Armor of the Soul of Cinder, a deific manifestation of the Lords of Cinder, who linked the First Flame.

It resembles a knight's armor, but bears hideous burns and contortions...

..A mishappen crown can be seen upon its rear. (Helm) /
..taking the shape of a deathly ribcage. (Chest)

It exists as a symbol of the great Lords and the noble act of linking the fire, though it is no more than an empty husk. (Chest, Gauntlets, Leggings)





Location/Where to Find

  • Buy from Shrine Handmaid in Firelink Shrine for 56000 souls after defeating Soul of Cinder or after defeating the boss as a phantom in another player's world. 
  • You do not need to enter New Game Plus to be able to buy it, but it will still be available.

Trivia

  • Much like the Elite Knight Set and the Faraam Set from the previous games, this armor set is considered to be the flagship armor of Dark Souls 3, as it appears in the box art, and is featured as the red knight figurine of the collector's edition and in the Funko Pop line.

      Such strange set, the damaged appearance intentionally makes it seems like a weird amalgam of other sets. Hand piece looks like alva set, legs like elite knight, chest like lothric chest, helmet is too deformed to get a clear read

        God, i know this petty as hell, but i really hate how the Visor of the helmet looks like that, why does it look grey?
        i understand it in Soul of Cinder, that's how probably it's "skin" looks like that, but why does it look grey in our character as well?
        hell, is that gap suppossed to be a Visor?
        if the Visor was obscured like in some of the Promotional art i would love this to death.
        outside of the Visor, this is a neat looking Set.

            Is it just me but does this armor look like the elite legs,arms,and helm but the base knight chest armor from ds1

              I don't know why but I fell in love with the armor when I first saw it I get why people don't think it is the best it isn't the best but I love the way it looks

                This is honestly one of the few “thin” sets I like. The colors just work really well together and the textures are really appealing.

                  kinda disappointed with this armor set, i thought it was gonna looks exactly like the soul of cinder armor, with black and burned textures.

                  • Anonymous

                    Best looking armor and my personal favorite from the series. But I use Lothric knight leggings for the poor legging defense of the base set.

                      If you can't stop whining about the stats of this set, just equip Elite Knight Leggings and Gauntlets. They retain the fashion.

                        i use it but with ringed knight leggings and gauntlets, and the more you play the darker it gets so it looks like the cover art

                          This armor set is probably my favorite armor set in the game. Call me basic, but I love the way it looks and in a way it's a symbol for DS3, broken and burned but still going.

                            This looks a lot like a red, damaged version of the Elite Knight armor? Especially the Chest and Leggings.

                              This set is quite something. Simply put, it has pretty weak stats all-round and low poise per weight, but looks imposing and cool. I guess it's to trap people who want to show off they beat the game, and putting them at a disadvantage. Maybe it's to show just how weak the old souls, and the first flame itself, have really gotten. Think about the firelink GS. That thing isn't a good weapon and it might just be for lore reasons. Like the wood shield from bloodborne existing just to show you it sucks

                                ...are you ******* serious? You get the flagship armour of the game by beating the final boss? From and Miyazaki really lost their touch with this game.

                                  I personally love the look of this armor. It looks worn and beaten, like how I imagine my character feels at the end after getting killed over and over throughout the game. At certain angles the face mask looks like it has sad eyes, which hits me right in the feels while thinking about the story and everything.

                                    I loved the Soul of Cinder and after i beat him i made sure to get the helm, while i wore more stacked armor for my lower body i always wore the helm.

                                      It's cool how they named this the "red knight" , so it could be sold as merchandise while not spoiling players.

                                        The only sure fire way to not get swarmed with “u a twink get good”, as long as they understand the concept of NG+

                                        • Honestly, considering that Armor seems be more fashion with players; This Set is disappointing at best. There's far "tougher" and sexier looking Sets with better Stats. Undead Legion has far better Elemental defense as an example.

                                          • it really is a shame that pvp shares the same stats as pve. i'd like to have an OP set that comes from the last boss or a weapon that just destroys pve. "does increased damage to npc's, reduced damage in player vs player" something like that. it always makes me upset that one of my favorite items get's nerfed because of it's effect on pvp

                                              They could have done something really cool, making the armor look more like cinders why’ll emberd. But no

                                                I love how everyone is complaining about how poor this armors stats are when it is clearly fitting the description of it being burned and broken not only that armor isn't really that big of a deal even it only matters that you have a piece on every part of the body even if its just rags having a full havel set isn't as op as it used to be

                                                • If you look in the middle from the breathing holes on both sides of the mask, you can see a faint line across it. Does anyone know the reason for this? Because it really bugs me

                                                    It may be so mediocre, because From didn't want every single *****ing player running in demigod-final boss-killer-badass armor, it is rarely seen in PvP and it propably was meant to be that way, I'm not complaining

                                                      This armor set looks so cool. But it's a damn shame how borderline weak it is for an armor you have to beat the game (or assist someone beating their game) to unlock. Not to mention the amount of souls it cost too. The trend for this game has been style > substance by far with armors.

                                                          To me honestly, I think it is supposed to take aspects of all lords of cinder. Just take a closer look at all lords armor and you'll see. However it take Yhorm much more as he was more noble a lord than the rest. Ludleth was an exile mage not very noble, Aldrich was a cannibal cleric very unnoble, the Abyss watchers were all warriors but died united in their blood to the abyss, and Yhorm who linked the flame to settle things and "fix" the profaned flame as well as defend everyone despite their hate toward him. Very noble lord indeed.

The helmet is missing the glowing/burning crown spikes in the front that the Soul of Cinder has. Check out some videos to see for yourself.

                                                                did anyone else have to buy the set again in new game plus? I bought it right after i defeated Soul of Cinder, but when I went to new game plus, it was still available for purchase, but apparently the game just removed the set, and I had to buy it again

                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                  With all of the armor combine from previous souls cover art or main protagonist armor. This one actually doesnt win my favor in my opinion. Unlike previous dark souls, dks can obtain through darkroot garden and as for dksii you can get it in drangleic castle. But this one somewhat becomes end game armor which brings in a question why? The design is mediocore but still provide minimal amount of protection. However I do not blame Miyazaki for this idea and still content for getting the armor through fighting soul of cinder. Minor rant to be honest. Drop a hate if you want, I can respect that. PS I notice that you can get the armor after beating him as a summon, but it is still a endgame armor no matter what. And no, dont start with me about the DLCs counting as an endgame, I'm talking about the vanilla game.

                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                    • My favorite set. But where are folks getting the idea that it's the Great Lord set fused with the Elite Knight set. I've rocked both and I do not see it at all. Doesn't look like a robe, doesn't look like the Great Lord anklets. Now Nameless King - he's totally rocking updated Gwyn fashion with a war god twist.

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                          • Anonymous

This set is supposed to represent all Lords of Cinder, grand and mighty beings capable of using themselves to link the First Flame! Plus, this set is, most times, the last one to become available in the game, only unlocking after beating the final boss. And what do we receive? A light set that can barely absorb blows (20.7% defense on average). The Knight set beats this in 5 out of 8 damage types. The Knight set! From, please do something whit this crap set.

                                                                                • Anonymous

Use this one :- Iron Helm- Firelink Chest- Firelink Gauntlets- Knight Leggings- (Bonus : Have a bow so you can have a quiver full of arrows, definitely is a plus for the look)While being Embered (a bit too even if you're not), this gives you a "on-fire" cool looking effect, which definitely fits with the RP of the game, since Fire is one of the main themes. For the weapons, I would suggest :- Dragonrider Bow (Good damage, the color is black and kinda fits)- Dark Sword (buff it with fire, and you'll look like a fire warrior)- Profaned Greatsword (its charged R2 and its Weapon Arts sets it on fire)- Shield of Want (the colors definitely fits with the armor, and the Lore behind the shield fits with the "fire" theme).
