      It's pretty disappointing that this armour set has such little increase in defense compared to the other heavy armour sets despite it's much higher weight. For comparison's sake, the Exile set has marginally less defense overall compared to Havel's set, but weighs far less and can be acquired much earlier in the game.

        god I miss ds1 poise. getting a heavy armor build online took allot more time but it felt earned vs a dex builds that litteraly come online the second the game starts.

          Too heavy, I wear Gundyr's Set, only receiving moderately worse ratings in strike and a bit lower in Thrust - Using up only 40 equipment load, much less, compared to Havel. Smough's Set is even worse. Nice gimmick, but without the option to reinforce armor, there's literally no point to use Havel anymore. The poise gained doesn't do***** either in DS3...by far not enough to justify using Havel's Set, when Havel's Ring is a mere shade of its former self as well. Rip heavy loads.

            Mid roll with the complete set plus the weapon and shield and NO rings, cannot be done even with 99 VIT. With Havel's ring +3, Ring of Favor +3 and Prisoner's chain, you need 77 VIT for exactly 70% load (78 VIT if you want to wear a 4th ring, I recomment Chloranthy +3, you're gonna need it) That's just to carry everything, to wield the weapon/shield you need 40 STR.

              At lvl 100, (with full Havels Set, and Havels Greatshield, and Dragon Tooth)......with Ring Of Favor+3, Prisoners Chain and Havels Ring+3, you have exactly 100% encumbrance. (Meaning you can still roll and run.)

                *Makes poise only useful for great weapons* *Max poise set too heavy to use with great weapons* Well done, Miyazaki.

                  In order to utilize the full Havel Set, Including the Shield and Tooth, you need 78 Vitality. 78. With Havel's+3, Fap+3, and Gundyr's. At least 79 to be able to use Caestus for parrys/quick attacks.

                    ***** me, the only person I bothered to kill him on was my sorcerer and I never picked up the set before going to NG+. Oh well, it's a*****ty set, to be honest. Way too heavy to roll in without stacking all your points in vitality AND wearing DLC Havel's Ring and it doesn't even offer damage protection that justifies the investment. Maybe I'll make a beefy character with Gundyr's set. I want a strength character with a heavy set who can roll. For PvE, obviously, though not sucking in PvP is a plus.

                      A little rant: If the old poise was still in play pvp would be annoying an making straight swords more viable for dodging, chipping away at healthwith an with more of the same***** salty msgs when you kick their ass, git gud, casual, scrub. Well sorry I made a noob out of you
