Notes and Tips

      The chest piece works so damn well with so many other amors. One of the best designed armors to date, minus the helm.

          I see speedrunners grab this set on the way, and swap it in and out during the run. Anyone know what's so special about this set for that reason?

            Supposed to be Griffith set? I guess? But they did a hell better job with Guts armor. The Sellsword set. Would be cool if FROM could decide if they care about copyright or not... or just buy the Beserk rights finaly and make the damn game.

            • Is this the strongest armor that comes with an actual full length cape that is still more or less whole? I need to know because I'm a sucker for capes and their looks (screw you Edna and your whole "no capes!" crap) but I want a strong armor to withstand any hits I may take accidentally.

                https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WqCM68-UoUA It is not lacking against blunt strikes, but blunt force could be delivered inside of the armour, if equipper did not worn the undergarment such as thin padded cloth. If he equipped armour which has flexible structure(or only wearing cloth) would have suffered from deadlier blunt trauma which could breaking bones and give him concussion. Obviously, is that woolen cloth is just for show off case? Plate armour provided best protection against all of physical threatenings.
