For the Dark Souls variant, see Ornstein's Set.

The Dragonslayer Set is a heavy armor set in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Golden lion armor associated with Dragonslayer Ornstein, from the age of gods, and imbued with the strength of lightning.
In the dragonless age, this knight, who long guarded the ruined cathedral, left the land in search of the nameless king.


Found on the far side of the courtyard below The Nameless King's arena, after defeating the Nameless King.


Returning from Dark Souls, the set of armor formerly worn by Dragon Slayer Ornstein has a varied and strong line of defenses against most threats that the player can expect to face.

Despite being on the lower end of heavy armor sets, Ornstein's set boasts strong physical defenses, being equally resistant to Slash and Thrust damage; however, like most other plate metal armor sets, it has a weakness to Strike damage. As protection worn by one who harnessed the power of lightning to slay fire-breathing dragons, its elemental defenses are also very sound, being equally resistant against Fire and Lightning damage, though as armor worn by a servant to the divinity it is also particularly weak to Dark damage. Its resistance to status effects is very sound across the board, being particularly resistant to Bleed buildup.

As with all other heavy armor sets, the Dragonslayer Set provides a strong poise-to-weight ratio, though it should be noted that as Ornstein's spear does not possess any Hyper Armor frames in Dark Souls III, it is of little help except when wielding heavier weapons.

  • Before the App 1.11 Regulation 1.30 patch, the helm lacked the red plume, similar to its predecessor.
