Gundyr's Set is an Armor in Dark Souls 3.

Ancient armor of a set of cast iron armor, belonging to Champion Gundyr. Modeled after a former king.

Gundyr, or the Belated Champion, was bested by an unknown warrior. He then became sheath to a coiled sword in the hopes that someday, the first flame would be linked once more.

Location/Where to Find

Notes and Tips

  • The former king mentioned in the armor description could be Old King Doran from Demon's Souls, the helmet being reminiscent of Doran's own helmet and the title of Doran itself.
  • Leaks from quality assurance testers of the alpha version suggest that Iudex Gundyr was originally going to play the role of Oceiros, using that name, in The Consumed King's Garden, with Oceiroso appearing in a cut area called "God's Grave". Gundyr would still be a character, but look and play like Yhorm the Giant - (credit darksouls3theorist and Lance McDonald).

      I've just matched the Gundyr chest and leggings with the Aristocrat's Mask and Fire Keeper Gloves (or Karla's depending on how you like the fashion and various defenses). With a VIT = 32(37: from the Prisoner's Chain) I can wear this; wield my 2H choice of (i) Vordt's Great Hammer; (ii) Dragonslayer Greataxe; or (iii) Greatsword with the Grass Crest Shield on the back. Not a "tank," but decent and balanced defense and resistances and the fashion appeals for a female STR based character.

        I really like the leggings of this armor paired with the Undead Legion's chest piece, they make the character look bulkier overall, but the feet design for the boots puts me off so much lol

          The chest piece is so cool with those hanging bronze things on the back. Only problem overall is ur arms will look exposed unless u wear long gauntlets like Ringed Knight Gauntlets. The poise for weight is also excellent, its a close competitor with Exile, Catarina & Winged Knight Sets. It's also the ONLY chunky armor besides Havel's that doesn't make you look like an obese balloon man.

            Take the helm from this set. Replace rest with ruin armor. Get a zweihander, chaos infuse it. Put grass crest on your back. Ring of favor, chloranthy, prisoner's chain, and a ring of your choice (I recommend wolf ring). 25 str, 40 int, 40 fth. Rest of your levels are up to you. The legend lives.

              How about lucatiel mask gundyr armor and brass leggings and gauntlets? I know its not the same but still reminded me something...

              • Anonymous

                I don't see it in the above.....

                but fyi, when the full set is equipped you receive a boost to your equip load. o.o

                  Hi, I'm doing an Old King Doran cosplay build, I already chose this as the armour, what should I have the weapon as?

                  • Anonymous

                    Unless I'm trying to stack a particular resistance for a particular fight, or want to dabble with heavier weapons for a bit of fun, I almost always fall back to Gundyr's set. Has solid absorption, poise and resistance with the only downside being weight (shock-horror). Looks good and only has a few blemishes.

                    Yes, I'm one of those people who played DS3 blind a few years ago and ended up with full Gundyr Armor + Gundyr Halberd. I said I'd do it differently all these years later, but it's hard to let this well rounded set go. Just ironic how it stems from (technically) the first boss of the game. Yes, I know, it's primarily from ChampGun, not RegularGun, but you know what I mean.

                      Gundyr's Set + Faraam Helm + Valorheart + "Welcome" gesture/"My Thanks" gesture = Instant Gladiator Memes.

                        Gundyr cosplay:use the darkmoon loyalty gesture with this set on with a sword infront of you,once they pick it up get up and start to attack like the actual boos AI

                        • I know this isn't official "canon" but this game ties up with Demon's Souls in the Dark Firelink Shrine. "Champion Gundyr. Modeled after a former king." - his armor is modeled after Old King Doran form Demon's Souls. There's a corpse that looks just like the Black Maiden from Demon's Souls. Who also misses her eyes just like the firekeepers (hers seemed waxed). And Firelink is basically The Nexus.

                            I have mornes helm with executiiners leggings gloves and armor really good defense but not much style thing is its heavy is this armor lighter and more defensive?

                            • Anonymous

                              I love this set except the leggings. I found the Harald Legion leggings look awesome on it, and if you don't have the DLCs, the Exile leggings look good too. And both give better defensive stats.

                                  I wish it showed off more skin like Old King Doran's set. Used to color coordinate perfectly with my DBS.

                                    Notice the look of the armor, the helmet in particular, and it's description. I think it's a Demon's Souls reference
