10 Best Exotic Armor Sets

Outrider Knight Set

The knights were given the eyes of the Pontiff, but the eyes transformed them into savage, raving warriors who only knew how to serve as mindless guards. This Armor has got a Strong Metalic look with a good Physical Resistance of 28.6 which makes it on our Top 10 List.

Location:
Found at Grand Archives - Get inside the Illusory Wall at the Top of the Area and this armor set is Dropped by an outrider knight.

Smough's Armor

Grotesque armor associated with Smough, the last knight to stand in defense of the ruined cathedral. Boasts extremely high defense and can be donned by humans, but not without great difficulty. A Heavy armor of about 62 pounds but has a great attack and defense rate.

Location:
Purchase it from Shrine Handmaid after defeating Aldrich.

Armor of Thorns

Armor of Kirk, the notorious knight of Thorns. A dense patch of thorns grows to form its surface. A fitting item for the murderous Kirk, for even the simple act of rolling, can damage enemies when wearing this attire. This is a Legendary Armor making its return from Dark Souls and it is very light to wear with high resistance.

Location:
Found on a body by Rosaria's Bed Chamber, but you must have been invaded by and vanquished Kirk on the ground floor of the Cathedral.

Winged Knight Set

Armor of the Winged Knights, who swore themselves to the Angels. Worship of the divine messengers was viewed as heresy in Lothric and unrecognized by any of the Three Pillars of the rule. This is believed to be why Gertrude, the Heavenly Daughter, was imprisoned in the lofty cell of the Grand Archives. Armor with wings at the back with Physical Resistance is balanced with the weight. 

Location:
Found at Grand Archives - In front of a Winged Knight painting

Black Knight Armor

Armor of the Black Knights who roam the lands. The knights served the First Lord Gwyn and followed him into the flame upon its linking. They became ash, but still wander the realms to this day.

Location:
Found At Anor Londo - Kill the Silver Knight again and again until you spawn every piece of armor.

Catarina Set

Distinctively shaped armor worn by the Knights of Catarina. Often ridiculed for its onion-like shape, infuriating the country's proud knights, but the masterfully forged curved design makes it very effective for defective blows.

Faaram Armor Set

Dancers Armor

Armor is worn by the Dancer of the Boreal Valley. The mirage-like aurora veil is said to be an article of the old gods, permitted only for direct descendants of the old royal family.

Armor of the Sun

Chainmail armor and white coat featuring a large rendition of the holy symbol of the sun. The choice attire of a singular Knight of Sunlight from a previous age.
