Ruin Set is an Armor in Dark Souls 3. It was added in The Ringed City DLC.

Armor of the company of knights who were sent to the Ringed City on an old king's orders.

The knights sought the dark soul, but were so soundly crushed, they had little choice but to swear themselves to the Judicator Giant.

The ill-fated company was later immortalized in a dark fable, inspiring the aspect of certain golems in whom their name lived on.

Location/Where to Find

  • The Ringed City: found on a corpse just below the Mausoleum Lookout bonfire.

Notes and Tips

  • This set, by description, appears to be the armor worn by Knights of Ruin: an order of knights dedicated to uncovering the Dark Soul by King Vendrick of Drangleic.
  • The Ruined Sentinels of Dark Souls 2 were animated golems made to honor those Ruined Knights who never returned home after arriving in the Ringed City.
  • Every single piece can be sold to Shrine Handmaid for 600 souls.

      So Vendrick sent his beloved knights to the end of the world, knowing they might not return, to bring him back the Dark Soul. Instead, they fell and came to serve the Judicator Giants, making their own failed journey even more difficult for anyone to attempt it henceforth. It's almost poetic. They failed so hard, that they became an obstacle on their own way. Meanwhile, Vendrick was getting all of his power used up by Nashandra.

      This also confirms that the ruin sentinels of DS2 were just golems created in remembrance of the real, lost ruin knights. Damn, that's sad.

          so awesome how they put this in DS3. i don't like how they kinda pretended DS2 didn't exist in DS3 but hd so much DS1 fanservice, but this was a cool nod

            Give it a chance, it's a good set. The helmet sits a bit clunky on the head but it's less as bad as the black knight helmet neck glitch imo. And in exchange for that you'll get really solid stats overall.

              If anybody doesn't know, this armor is based off of the Ruin Sentinel's bosses armor in Dark Souls 2, though. Which of Sentinel's I'm unaware.

                "The knights sought the dark soul, but were so soundly crushed, they had little choice but to swear themselves to the Judicator Giant." Guess the bastard was summoning infinite archer ghosts way back then too.

                  it's weird, the golems in DS2 that represent the Ruin knights that went to the ringed city but never came back, so is Drangleic set in the future or past? How have the Ruin Knights made it to the Ringed City, if DS2 is set in the past, how are there the Ruin Sentinels / golems in Lost Bastille?

                    For everyone wondering what this portrays/ who do you cosplay with it. The Description tells that the Knights wearing this armor were a company dispatched by an old King. The Design of the armor is has the same defining Details as the Ivory Knights, of the Ivory King in Dark Souls 2. Hinting that they were dispatched by him. "Inspiring the aspect of certain golems in whom their name lived on" , through this Description we also get a hint at the Art of "Golem-crafting" which was a trait performed by the Ivory King, much like the Iron King crafted the "Smelter Demon", which is just a golem if you break it down - the name "Smelter DEMON" just is named that way since he is born of flames much like the Demons of Izalith were.
