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.

  • 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.

      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.

                    I don't like how some armors in this game are really skinny, like the firelink set. The thing is, they look weirdly worse when they are bulky!

                      If you always thought something is off about this set but you didn't know what exactly then here is the explanation. 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

                          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.

                            I think it would good to note that this set appears to be a burnt and corroded version of the elite knight set.

                              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.
