Armor is an important part of Dark Souls and Dark Souls Remastered, as its many resistances and weight will determine how effective you are in combat. This page features the many Armor sets in the game as well as their stats and the manner by which you can obtain them. Please see this page for a guide on choosing the best armor for your character.

Armor is also a cosmetic choice, and individual pieces can be mixed and matched to create an optimized setup, from a defensive and fashion perspective. Armor can be upgraded. To view individual pieces of armor please see the Helms, Chest Armor, Gauntlets and Leggings pages.

Armor by Weight

About the Categories

Armor is grouped into Light, Medium and Heavy Armor based on an endurance level of 40 (Burden = 80) as this seems to be the level a lot of players aim to cap their Endurance at (it corresponds to the Stamina cap of 160). This will surely change as the meta-game shifts and the page should be edited accordingly.
Note: These numbers DO NOT take into account weapons/shields/bows/etc. Light, Medium and Heavy will ALWAYS depend upon your own equip burden stat.
Groupings are based on the following numbers (which correspond to movement/roll speed for that range of Equip Burden):

  • Heavy Sets = 40.1 - 80
  • Medium Sets = 20.1 - 40
  • Light Sets = 0 - 20
