The Chain Armor is a chest armor piece in Dark Souls. It is part of the Chain Set.

In-Game Description

Chainmail armor of thin interlinking rings of steel. It is common throughout the human world since it can be easily produced, is not too heavy, and offers good defense.
Knights may favor flashy armor, but for warriors on the battlefield, anything is fine as long as it keeps them alive.

Availability[]

Characteristics[]

This chest piece offers decent Poise but low lightning defense

Chain armor has a similar weight compared to Hard Leather Armor and Hollow Warrior Armor. Although Hard Leather Armor offers less physical, strike, and slash resistance, it offers higher fire, lightning, bleed and poison resistances. (Unfortunately, Hard Leather Armor offers zero poise.)

Hollow Warrior Armor has slighly lower stats across the board compared to Chain Armor, but with an important attribute: it grants more than twice the lightning resistance.

Weigh the pros and cons of these subtle differences and choose accordingly.

Upgrades[]

Requires 200 souls per upgrade.
