For the Dark Souls II variant, see Executioner Set.

The Executioner Set (処刑人シリーズ) is a heavy armor set in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Steel armor of Horace the Hushed, who took a liking to its cold, bulky insides.
The original owner was said to be a corrupt executioner, who was killed and stripped of his armor.
Horace is one of only two children to escape Aldrich's clutches.

Availability[]

Purchased from the Shrine Handmaid for a total of 18,000 souls after Horace the Hushed is killed.

Characteristics[]

Weighing in at the upper end of heavy armor sets, the Executioner Set provides good defenses as a cost of its weight.

It is extremely resilient against most forms of physical damage, only being weak to Strike damage like most other plate metal sets. It has very good elemental resistances as well, being weak only to Lightning damage, and having higher than usual resistance to Fire damage. It also resists status effects very effectively, only truly being "weak" to Curse buildup.

With a heavy weight and good poise-to-weight ratio, the Executioner Set can reliably wield heavy weapons to trade against enemies, provided that the proper amount of Vitality is invested.

In-Game Description

沈黙の騎士ホレイスの鉄鎧 彼はこの、分厚く冷たい鉄の内を好んだ
元は、ある下種な男を殺し奪ったものでありその男は堕落した処刑人であったという
ホレイスはエルドリッチの子供たちの一人であり唯二人の生き残りでもあった

In-Game Description

The iron armor of the Silent Knight Horace. He liked the thick, cold iron interior .
It originally belonged to a vile man that was a depraved executioner, who was killed and his armor stolen from his corpse.
Horace is one of Aldrich's children and one of the only two still alive.

Trivia[]

  • A more accurate translation of the "Executioner Set" confirms the fact that Horace and Anri were in fact Aldrich's children and the only two who managed to survive and avoid being eaten by the Lord of Cinder.
  • The armor appears to be a reference to the armor worn by Bazuso in Berserk, with the helmet being especially similar to the helmet worn by him.
