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.

      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.

              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.

                    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.
