Havel's Set is an Armor Set in Dark Souls and Dark Souls Remastered.


Havel's Set Information

Apparel worn by Havel the Rock's warriors. Carved from solid rock, its tremendous weight is matched only by the defense it provides.
Havel's Warriors never flinched nor retreated from battle. Those unfortunate enough to face them were inevitably beaten to a pulp.



  • This set of armor is located in Anor Londo, in the basement of the main building leading to Gwynevere. On the base floor, there is an illusory wall in a fire place that may be struck and opened, leading to the basement. You'll find several chests in the basement, one containing Havel's full set of armor, and one being a Mimic chest
  • Video Location Timestamp 15:37



  • Has the highest poise of any armor set in the game
  • While its high poise and exceptional defenses make it appealing, its extreme weight means it'll likely bring a player's equip weight down to heavy unless they have extremely high endurance.
    • A common strategy is to equip individual pieces of the set (i.e. gauntlets or helmet) on top of lighter armor in order to boost one's poise.
  • Cannot be upgraded.
  • Each armor piece of this set reduces Stamina recovery by 1 per second (chest by 2) for a total of 5 for the full set.

      ah my poor Havel, i should be grateful thou hast passed on before you saw the atrocity they call "poise" in these other games, to Havel poise MEANT SOMETHING, it meant fortitude and might!. (and fatrolling)

          if your a cleric and wear this set with his ring as well you can just spam lightning spears and never get interrupted by anything short of Manus or Supa Smough

            I love how a real, viable strategy for this game is just equipping Havel's armor. If you're struggling, you can literally just put on Havel's set and the game gets easier. It never fails.

                just wear giants set. It's has less poise but it's still such a high amount that you can poise through nearly every attack in the game.It also weighs far less and has the highest defense in the game when fully upgraded. still a good set for poising certain bosses like Four Kings and Artorias but wouldn't recommend for fighting most enemies and bosses.

                  Why would you even wear this? It weighs more than and had less defense in almost every stat than a fully upgraded set of black iron. It had a bit better poise, but not needing to dedicate both ring slots to not fat rolling means you can use the wolf ring for more poise anyway. God this armor is not worth it. Tarkus for life

                      I just put on Havel's ring, and the ring of favor and protection and i'm not that slow, but my endurance is about 40.

                        You can still wear this set without fat-rolling if you equip Havel's Ring and have a reasonable amount of Endurance.

                          With this armour set and swinging an ultra greatsword, only 3 things in the game are capable of breaking your poise... Dogs, rats, and hollows with torches... Yet you can poise through a building sized hydra slamming its head down on you

                            Actually pretty good. Havel’s set, black knight great sword, grass crest shield and mask of child is basically a ripoff giant dad
