In-Game Description

Ornstein is believed to be the captain of the Four Knights. His golden lion gauntlets are imbued with the power of lightning and should provide good protection against it.


Purchased from Domhnall of Zena for 6,000 souls, if the player defeated Dragonslayer Ornstein second during the Dragonslayer Ornstein and Executioner Smough boss fight in Anor Londo.


Grants excellent lightning and fire resistance.
