Cleanrot Armor is a Chest Armor in Elden Ring. Cleanrot Armor is part of the Cleanrot Set Armor Set, and it was a chestpiece worn by Malenia's vowed knights. Cleanrot Armor is an armor piece worn over or around the player's torso to obtain an increase of defense and resistance. It also changes the appearance as well when it is equipped. Some armor pieces may be available to both genders but may be slightly different for male and female characters.
Armor of the Cleanrot Knights, celebrated for their undefeated campaign in the Shattering.
The Cleanrot Knights vowed to fight alongside Malenia, despite the inevitable, if gradual, putrefaction of their flesh. Their acceptance of their fate made these battles fiercest of all.

The armor description is so freaking badass. They were also known as the strongest army of the shattering in 1.0 version of the game.
So, question: Is the CleanRot armor actually a thousand times rarer than all the other pieces in the set, because I have about ten each of the other pieces, but no main armor. The only other explanation I can think of is that the game is somehow monitoring which pieces I already have, and skewing the drop roll to ensure that I never pick up the last piece.
I’ve been farming for 5 hours now and still have yet to see a chest piece
I got it at Shaded Castle on my run up to Elemer. Lucky me, perfect for my golden order build.
i altered the cleanrot armor and now everytime i try to equip it my game crash thank you elden ring
I picked up 3 of these while killing knights in the Warded catacombs. I can't wear any of them though - my game crashed whenever I put it on. All other items of the set don't cause this problem though.
Everyone seems to have made this harder than it needs to be. There's a cleanrot knight right outside the Prayer Room site of grace in the Haligtree. Farmed him for about 1 minute, got it.
Best place to farm is the one at the bottom of Elemer's Tower in Shaded Castle after you beat Elemer. Coming down the lift it even sets you up for an easy backstab to start the fight. Just make sure you don't send the lift back up if you want to loot as the knights WILL walk into the pit.
So, everyone's complaining about the horrible RNG, but I don't think they're truly stressing how bad it is. I farmed for 2 hours, got 7 helms, 1 pair gauntlets, 4 greaves, 4 swords, 1 spear and 2 scythes before finally getting the chest. This is with 16 arcane and I used multiple fowl feet.
just got one from the shaded castle
Surprisingly weaker to the Banished Knight chestplate when comparing the weight, though it does look pretty cool and that's what counts. You can alter the armor and remove the cape if wanted.
It took me about an hour and a half of farming the knights to get them to drop the full set. I had 2 helms drop, 1 chest, 2 hands and 1 leg piece drop in that order, with arcane at 9. Hope that helps
I got 6 of each of the other pieces, not one of these so far. Has to be the worst RNG i’ve ever seen for an item in a souls game. All of the other armor sets in the starting areas look goofy af. Thanks fromsoft
Can confirm after an hour of farming the cleanrot knights with ~120 discovery and a silver crow's foot active that this DOES drop from the cleanrot knights outside of the heart of aeonia.
I'd wager it has a smaller drop chance than the weapons. Two scythes and four swords, 5 helmets, 2 hands and leg pieces dropped for me before the chest piece did.
