Set pieces[]


Requires Twinkling Titanite to upgrade. Each piece can be reinforced up to +5.


The Dark Set is one of the more useful sets towards the end of the game, due to its manageable weight, decent physical defenses, and high resistance to dark, the latter resistance being among the highest available in the entirety of the game. Its other resistances to the elements and status effects are decent enough to make an impact when the set is fully upgraded. However, it lacks petrification and curse resistance, has unremarkable poise for its weight, and is costly to reinforce, as it requires Twinkling Titanite. Regardless of its downsides, it still remains a very useful set in certain areas of the game where enemies frequently use weapons or spells imbued with dark.
