Love wearing the chest piece with the scaled helm, scaled gauntlets and fur leggings. Looks kinda cute.
Relly cool looking armor, except for leggings. I just swap them for kaiden set leg parts.
if you dont want the helmet just use the bandit mask it fits well
Crackpot theory here: there was a scrapped starting class that used this set. Looking at where you buy this set, the merchant also sells a Bastard Sword, Round Shield, and Light Crossbow, of which the sword has a 16 Str/10 Dex requirement. 16 Str is the same level the Hero starting class has, while one point in dex meets that requirement. All three weapons means you'd be in heavy load, however, so 2 points into Endurance (14 total) and minus 2 from Arcane (9 total) would give you a baseline as such:
- Vigour: 14
- Mind: 9
- Endurance: 14
- Strength: 16
- Dexterity: 10
- Intelligence: 7
- Faith: 8
- Arcane: 9
Total Level: 8
For further evidence, a greatsword and a crossbow would be wholly unique equipment across all starting gear, even including Souls games. The armour description also sounds like a more practical starting gear description, detailing what protection each piece is good for.
My theory is that FromSoft scrapped this class (likely Soldier) in favour of having the Hero class start with the battle axe and slightly more Arcane. Even if it's not true, the ENTIRE equipment set is available five minutes after you start the game, so you can play it exactly as such. It's such a good-looking set, too!
helmet is top tier drip
costs 24 iron to make all pieces btw.
It looks cool and is only slightly less resistant in most stats than the Knight Set. The poise difference from that one is irrelevant as even 40 poise isn’t going to help you against anything. So, for those thinking this set is a mere stand-in while saving up for the Knight Set, don’t. This is just fine until you’re rolling in runes.
Such a cool armor set, not flashy and over the top like the knight sets and I never liked wearing armor with others names on it, I'm the future elden lord I'll carve my own path
There's a certain je ne sais quoi about rugged and practical sets like these. They're not tacky like the armor of demigods and stuff, they're just plain good-looking.
I like how the description describes this set as just a pretty practical set
There is something about this armour set but I can’t explain it

This helmet + Kaiden Armor + Any fitting gauntlets and greaves (I recommend Vagabond's) and you have a great looking drip
Kaiden Helm+Scale Armor+Iron Gauntlets+Knight Greaves = best looking armor in Elden.
You also get a decent amount of poise with this combination (33).
<3 rustic vibe <3
This set annoys me so much. It's so close to being amazing, but a couple of things really hold it back for me. First is the helmet's brim and face mask being way too low. It should be just over the eyes, and the mask over the nose. Second is the cloth cape/scarf under the scale one. It looks really ugly and clashes with everything else that makes the set look good. Also clings to your body in a weird way. I wish it could be altered, and that part made removable.
This set not only looks great but it also is really solid when it comes to defenses. The poison resistance on the helmet is good, the fire resistance on the chest piece is great, and the physical resistance is really solid for the amount of equip load you need to wear it. Overall it's a great all rounder set especially for early game.
Skyrim cover set, the Dragonborn armor, is composed of an iron helmet, scale armor and iron gauntlets. The only difference between this and Skyrim's are the leggings (although leather boots is also an early armor piece), so I can't help but think that this is clearly a reference.
Looks really good if you swap out the arms and legs for the scaled gauntlets and leggings. Better stats too, makes for a cool upgrade without changing the overall look and feel of the set much.
The chest piece is pretty cool, the rest is not bad but pretty generic
Never even noticed that I wore this set for 90 hours
I like how this set is composed of different style pieces, leather, iron, the makeshift scale cloak, even the helmet looks improvised a bit. Gives it a weathered, storied vibe. The flavor text for each piece really adds to that. Not flashy but I think this is one of the nicest sets in the game.
Battlemage Leg and Arm Manchettes, this chest piece and Prophet Blindfold to make a savage looking Dragon Prophet
This armor really has that hunter/barbarian/survivor vibe to it. Really makes me thing that I'm alone out here looking out for myself with people barely helping me and if I don't then I'll get killed. Makes me think before I act anytime, be smart and calculative about everything I do too. Not just that, it's also on the heavier side of medium armors so it's got goo damage reduction. Pair that with the iron greatsword and you pretty much have a monster hunter character now. Easily one of the best looking armors out there but aesthetically and functionally. 10/10
somehow reminds me of monster hunter
Looks really comfy.
Not a very fancy looking set, that my taste then. Don't need a fancy, flashy armor to be looking good after all.
I love the chest piece and bracers. Been wearing them almost the entire game now.
Can buy it from the merchant at the castle morne rampart grace in the south
I don't know why, but I really like this set. Perfect for a sort of armored barbarian look.
Set can be bought from a Merchent near the Castle Morne Ramparts
