The Varangian Armor is a chest armor piece in Dark Souls II.
It is part of the Varangian Set.

In-Game Description

Armor worn by Varangians that terrorized nearby seas.
The coastline stretches far in northern Drangleic. Beyond this northern sea is an unexplored continent, said to be the home of things inhuman.


Dropped by Varangian Sailors in No-man's Wharf.


The Varangian Armor is light and easily acquired, and offers more defense than other light chest pieces. The most notable advantage it gives is favorable early-game Poison resistance, which can be helpful later, especially in The Gutter and in the Black Gulch.
