For the Dark Souls variant, see Chain Set.

The Chain Set is a medium armor set in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Armor of thin interlinking rings of steel.
Popular due to its ease of crafting, respectable damage absorption, and light weight.
Knights may favor imposing armor, but for warriors on the battlefield, that which keep them alive is armor enough.

Availability[]

Sold by the Shrine Handmaid for a total of 2,300 souls.

Characteristics[]

As a beginning armor set, the Chain Set is light and offers relatively high protection against standard Physical and Slash damage, and has fairly tolerable resistance to elemental damage. It is, however, noticeably weak to Strike, Lightning and Fire damage.

While it is acceptable for early-game protection, most players will eventually find more suitable options as they make progress, so the Chain Set's longevity may become quite short.
