Vilhelm's Set is an Armor in Dark Souls 3.  It is part of the Ashes of Ariandel DLC.

The black (piece name) of Vilhelm, Knight of Londor, and a nice fit for any lean Hollow.

This hollow knight, who served the three sisters who founded the Sable Church, was particularly loyal to the eldest, and was known as a cold-blooded hangman.

      My favourite set in the game and one of the best light-medium armours. Caster builds can use it along with a light melee weapon and their casting tool of choice, all with relatively low weight capacity. My setup for a faith build was a lightning infused follower sabre, canvas talisman, and this armor, faith at the soft-cap and 20 dex to reach the casting-speed hardcap of 50 with the corresponding ring. Works for PVP as well, though it's not meta by any means.

        This is no joke, one of the best Armor sets & characters that Fromsoft has ever designed. It just oozes atmosphere and helps to really give a good impression that Londor is the Land of the Hollows. The armor being thin shows just how skeletal and slim the wearer is, and with Vilhems voice alone it makes you feel as if he's lived an age of austerity and grave devotion. Reminds me of a Dark Paladin of sorts. Paired with the other best thing Fromsoft made, the Onyx Blade...I couldn't ask for more.

          My favorite looking armor set in the game, no joke.

          Also, I don’t know AoA’s lore that well, could someone explain why his armor set is found in that underground area with the maggot flies?

                I'm conflicted on if this set is cool or not... is the slightly-too-small helmet and grandma shawl that noticeable...? Will the other reds make fun of me?

                  I "like" how he was so much about honor and stuff, "I've failed you" and such. And when he died, they just dumped his body in trash :|

                    I like this set because it's kind of a blend of Dark Souls and Bloodborne armor. You have a lot of chainmail, cloth, and scale plate, but at the same time you have an ornate Knight helmet. Really cool.

                      People love fluted set vents making it looks like a evil grin. Ds3 knight set have those paintings around the eye that make it looks like it's crying. But this one have a funny vent that looks like a comic angry eyebrows

                        my favourite set in the game love the engravings and don't get me started on the ****ing poncho wish they made vilhelm an actual boss, oh give him a personality that isn't just friede's ***** boy while you're at it

                        • Noooiiice! Finally a black Knight helmet. I mean a helmet what fits and looks similar to the normal knight helmet, or elite or this types (lothric, Alva...) they're all silver! And now finally a black version! <3 I absolutely Love it. Cause then it fit to my: Fallen Knight chest, black iron gauntlets and leggins! And doesn't look like a saucepan (black iron) or like a weird long, small head (black Knight). Sorry mates it looks great if you wear the whole set but anything else looks weird..

                              Would have preferred they added the Burial Knight Set over this one, looks way better in my opinion. :/

                              Oh well, I guess I'll just have make a Demon's Souls cosplay with this somehow...

                                  IMO Vilhelm's helm bears a stricking resemblance to the fluted helmet from the Fluted set [Male] from Demon's Souls

                                  • Anonymous

                                    Since the armor doesn't offer terrific physical defense, I swap the leggings and gauntlets for Ruin set stuff. The gold color works well with the subtle gilding on the helmet, and the striped pattern works well with the shawl.

                                    But the helmet is also fun to use with bulky armor to give you that shrunken head look.

                                      I don't know if you know it yet, but if you wear this armor and you die in the first phase of the boss fight with sister friede, friede will tell you another things instead the normality!!!
                                      She will tell you a thing about Londor, couse the armor was a own of a chivalry of Londor, I don't remember very well the words because I have discovered it today! Pls tell me if I'm saying right, test it :D

                                          On its own it looks kinda meh, but take Yuria's armor and replace the dress with Vilhelm's armor and there you have Knight of Londor cosplay (or Lord of Hollows who doesn't wear dresses). Looks better too.

                                            The poncho part of the chest armor looks a lot like the Tattered Cloth Robe from Dark Souls 1. But that robe is stated to be from the Great Swamp (and is starting gear for the Pyromancer). Vilhelm is a knight of Londor, true, but could he also have connections to the Great Swamp? We know Vilhelm must have at least some pyromancer stats, given the dark pyromancy nature of his sword. So who knows, maybe Vilhelm passed through the Great Swamp at some point, or at least picked up some fashion tips from a pyromancer.

                                              Why is his helmet titled upwards? When I compare it with wearing it and not wearing it, the mouth guard, that is the 'beak' of the helmet, covers the eyes of the character instead of looking through the eye sockets of the helmet. Seems like a dumb design decision.

                                                There's an error with the pages for the individual pieces for this set on this wiki. Every piece is categorized as a helm, presumably because of the word "helm" being in Vilhelm's name.

                                                  The helmet is almost identical to the one under the hood of the fallen knight armor, and the torso and guantlets are incredibly similar. Fallen Knights are the knights of Londor I assume?

                                                    I was expecting a serious fight when I ran into him the first time, but alas, I was let down. None can stand the might of a charged R2 from an ugs. Well, no player sized enemies at the very least.

                                                      For all those curious, Vilhelm doesn't drop his armor when killed, it's on a corpse. Once you reach the Snowy Mountainpass Bonfire (Past the Corian Village), it's in a hidden location through an illusiory wall past an army of those fly *****ers. The area is on a ridge past two Milwood knights guarding a cave. Just follow the paths rightward and you should find them with little difficulty. In the cave behind them, there's a square room with some fly people in it, and the illusory wall is in the far left corner. There are some messages there already, so it shouldn't be too hard to find. After that, follow the stairs to the nasty ass hive place, and it's the farthest item to the right.

                                                      I hope this helps people, since I'm not that good at explaining things.
