      Killed the entire gate front ruins camp just with rolling. Love this set. Someone needs to do a roll only run

        Was fighting the guy at sol wearing this set, level 90. Was on half health with on heal flask, until I panic rolled into him, killing him and saving me. Never letting go of this set.

          This set should damage enemies who grapple you. Like if an Iron Virgin grabs you, you'd hit her back directly to the weak spot

            Wear the gloves at all times, you'll never get stuck between mobs trying to roll out and die this way. Doesn't happen a .lot but when it does, oh boy is it infuriating,.

                I've been wearing the gauntlets on my usual set of armor and it's impressive how often that 1 point of damage staggers enemies when rolling. I've seen it interrupt black knives' attacks.

                  If you wear this and use the lions claw aow, the flip counts as a rolling hit. Pretty useful in certain scenarios

                    The left arm clips through the cape when jogging on medium load, theres no changes to the size of your arm that you can make to make it not clip while jogging, it is such a minor issue but it bother the **** out of me, its been like this since release and its been the only thing keeping me form doing a full run as a Elemer cosplay, help me

                        Just a few notes from personal testing: Can be buffed with spells such as Flame, Grant Me Strength or Golden Vow. Anything that buffs the base damage of the character will buff this armour. This set DOES NOT activate any of the “repeated attack” talismans, like the Sword Insignias and Swaddling Cloth, although its damage will be buffed if the Sword Insignias are activated via other means. It also does not benefit from either the Windy Crystal Tear or the Crucible Feather Talisman.

                          Am I the only one noticing that if you were this armor set you don't break things when jumping into them? I thought it was an update to the game, then I removed the armor and everything broke again. Rolling smashes thing still though.

                            You aren’t wearing the gauntlets with your optimized build for fashion. And you know it. Colossal goes away, DPS meta comes out and you get spanked. You get a point down and a well deserved sh*t pot.
                            You aren’t as slick as you think you are.

                                should be added you need to get the quest from Enia or otherwise after defeating Elemer you'll be locked out of getting the armor during the plsythrough.......... why fromsoft why....

                                  Note: While not great for bosses, this set is LOVELY for regular enemies. It's hits knock things out of attacks very easily, and knock them backwards normally. Meaning you can clear space by just rolling through hordes and getting them out of your way. Don't use it for damage, use it for utility.

                                  • This set is great in the open world, through dodging you sometimes interrupt the enemies attack which is a neat gimmick to this awesome looking Armor.

                                      I really like this set, probably my favorite in the game only a few others come close like the Eccentric set but I wish you could alter the armor as a 'restored' version. Not necessarily without the briars or pristine. Just being able to make the armor look worn but not tread through 7 kilometers of salty swamp water while pouring gravy on yourself.

                                        It’s a good thing they patched the fires deadly sin + blood flame blade glitch. It was deadly enough on its own but it sounds even worse when you pair it with this and lightning ram

                                          Why does this armor set not have good poise? Elemer poises through a heavy jump attack with a colossal weapon, and he wears the same armor.

                                              Lower poise than the Knight Set which you can buy in the first 20 min of the game. I get the added bonus of the roll damage but still, 51 should be the bare minimum for sets of this tier.

                                                Fromsoftware too: only adds cape alteration and skip adding restored version for rusty sets and additional variations.

                                                  Be careful wearing this set if you're trying to avoid wildlife conflict with the beast repellent torch. That is why I was running around those basilisks naked, officer. I swear!

                                                    Fun fact: with the giant cusher R2 or lion's claw this armor will slightly stagger enemies for tiny damage during the first part of the animation when next to them.

                                                      Those of you on PC, if you don't like the barbed wire but like the rest of the set theres a super simple mod to remove it from the armour and the sword on nexus. Looks incredible without it imo.

                                                      • Not sure if you guys are aware for Elden Fextra, but comments are producing errors and you cannot submit them when responding to comments – claims they are empty. I’m also getting JS script error popups.

                                                        • Neat little interaction: wearing a piece of this armour set will remove your ability to break objects by jumping in no-combat areas like Roundtree.

                                                          I discovered this when I tried jumping on the candlestand going to the twin husks shop, and ended up on TOP of the stand rather than breaking it. To my surprise, you can even leave a message there! Further testing around the area found I could not jump to break tables, armour stands, or chairs with the Briar armour on, but rolling into them still works. Wonder if that's intended, or it'll be fixed down the line.

                                                              Bumping into enemies with this counts as a weak attack and enemies that deflect weak attacks like Crystallians will cause you to stagger. This can lead to you getting stunlocked if you get too close to an enemy like that until their combo finishes, because they keep moving in to you which keeps triggering your stagger animation.

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                                Just curious because I know it staggers enemies with weak poise like zombies for PVE it for players if you're running super light armor for whatever reason, it could stagger you similar to a throwing knife. Just curious since I only wear one piece and didn't know if there was a way to determine the poise damage.

                                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                                      also great for dealing with any undead enemies. just roll over the bodies before they revive and they die. just be careful around NPC's as I did accidentally kill an injured npc while trying to progress their questline.

                                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                                        I figured out a handy tip. What its great for is killing the skeleton enemies when they're on the ground. You just kill them, then roll through their dead body to finish them without them getting back up. Easy peasy. All you need is one piece of the armor for it to work, so you can just have like the gloves or legs only etc.

                                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                                          Be very careful near friendly NPC's in this set. The rolling attack is disabled in non-attack areas for obvious reasons, but it will one-shot any NPC that can't fight back if attacked otherwise. Example: Rolling into Alexander will just act as an attack and piss him off, but rolling into someone like Sage Gowry will instantly kill them. Backstepping doesn't count, though, as it doesn't deal any damage normally. Careful with that B / O button, friends.

                                                                                            • Anonymous
