Veteran's Set Elden Ring Notes and Tips

  • The Veteran's Armor can be altered to the Veteran's Armor (Altered) to remove the cape.
  • Visually, the armor behind all the cloth in this set is almost identical to the Banished Knight Set, besides the helmet. There are differences in the details, like this one having real looking horns and more of them while Banished's got just one metal horn, and looking more deteriorated overall.
  • Poise updated to patch 1.07. See Patch Notes for details.

      What's with putting capes on everything?!? This thing has two of them! All it does clip through weapons, horses, furniture, walls, and everything else. Even if you do enjoy dressing up as a pigeon, this only looks "cool" when you're stationary and away from everything.

        Stereotypes of people who wear this aside, the full set looks so sick imo, I just wish it had the peg leg then it would be 10/10

          Not a huge fan of the leggings at all, especially the duck feet. Any good looking leggings that fit the set well?

            The best looking heavy set with best weight/defence/poise ratio imo. Other, lighter sets look better but I have to justify all this endurance somehow

            • Anonymous

              I think this armor set looks best when you are using larger weapons such as colossal weapons/swords or some of the halberts. On a strength build this can look pretty good but on a Dex build with katanas or other small weapons it can look kinda silly. I think this serves the purpose of heavy armor quite nicely without looking as goofy as the bull goat set (god the clipping on bull goat chest piece is atrocious). I also love the massive cape on the chest piece. You kind of have to commit to this set as apart from the gauntlets it is hard to mix and match pieces without it looking off or just downright terrible (Im looking at you veteran set with white mask people). Overall good set if you want a bulkier look

                This set makes you look like you're wearing a metal trash can on your chest. Fitting considering the tryhard stereotype it's known for.

                  veterans set and unaltered banished knights helm looks cool to me if you want similar stats but don't want face showing

                    Enough with the damn ugly random horn on the shoulder. Thats three armor sets that i like with this crap almost ruining them. Gives me conniptions.

                      I think this armor genuinely looks good with a heavy build. I didn't even know about the poise stat when I picked this out for my woodchopper Godfrey Axe Santa Claus arena build simply cause the burly chestpiece and the long, thick cloak.
                      For light builds though, it just looks goofy. The arms/legs and the helmet they wear will always be way smaller, making it look like the character's just wearing an overshized sweatshirt. It's one of those armor chestpieces like Smough's was in Dark Souls, you either commit to the heavy build and go all the way, or don't use it at all. Unless you deliberately want you character to look weird

                          tree sentinel armor has kinda dethroned this as the sweatlord armor of choice, though this is still quite good

                              I buy / farm every set I can. I like poise to armor to weight being right... Fine I'm a try hard but I'm wearing it, no reason not to.

                                    Dear Miyazaki, reduce poise on that armor-because 1)- Everyone wearing that and 2) its so strange that armor set have 1.5 more balance numbers then other same weight class armor.

                                      Damn was not expecting a majority calling the set ugly. One of the cooler armor sets in game imo and especially among the heavy armors. Although bull horn is silly looking I agree

                                        I’m honestly convinced that there’s a direct relationship between how ugly a set of armor is and how much poise it gives.

                                          It'd be nice if it didn't make your torso look really wide/fat if it was slimmed down to a similar size to something like banished knight armor/scaled armor, i would like it a lot more, idk maybe its intended to be a big tank man type armor set but i still think it would look way better if it was slimmer and less chonky.

                                            Goddamn this and the bull goat armor are some of the ugliest gear in the game, too bad they're the only sets with meaningful poise. Fashion souls is dead.

                                              Just reduce Poise down to <65 so that people can stop crying. I'd still wear the whole set regardless, since it's the dopest heavy armor in the game.

                                                there are so many people just combining this with parts of the lionel set and using some halberd (flaming strike/glintstone pebble) or ultra greatsword (giant hunt/rkr), its insane. these people are made in a factory, it's truly impressive just how often you can meet these kinds of people in duels.

                                                    The armor looks entirely too big for the player model, like it’s been proportionally increased in size more than it should’ve been.

                                                      The actual true problem with this set is that it kills fashion souls along with the bull-goat armor. In PVP, you'll see everybody just wearing this and nothing else. If everything else had higher poise values, you'd see this less often and an actual wide variety of armors. This set isn't OP, everything else is just trash. I just want to see people come up with creative fashion while still maintaining a decent build, please make it happen Fromsoft.

                                                        Only piece I like is the helm. That looks dope with unaltered banished knight armor or beast champion altered. The capes are important!

                                                          unless you're looking for poise higher than 105.4, or your level is high enough that 63 weight of bull-goat won't bother you, this is the best armor once you can afford the weight.For less than 4wgt, it got 19 more poise than those of 41.6wgt, with almost the same defense/resistance if not more, bit of ridiculous imo.Change the leg to bull-goat, and you'll get 116poise with tallisman with less armor less than 50wgt. making every other armor higher than this wgt bit of a joke(fashion not considered)

                                                            The Bloodhound Knight helmet is a good alternative to match this set, if someone doesn't like the open visor or bulky horns. It shares a very similar finish/hue and goes well woth the full plated knight ascetic.

                                                                Let’s be honest here, the only reason why people hate on this armor is because it’s one of the best. Same as rivers of blood katana. As far as the looks. I agree the helm looks ugly, so I use Baidds helm that matches perfectly with the cape. Problem solved

                                                                • Anonymous

Why? Who ****ing knows. Even if you do wear this, you'll still get staggered by rats.

                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                    • Anonymous

This set's poise needs to be balanced to be more comparable with other sets, and/or other sets need their poise values raised. Poise/weight ratio is hands down the most important armor stat because of how passive poise works, and because of that, this armor set will continue to be overused. I hate that I can't even remove the ugly cape, because that alone is TEN poise.

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        Either that or nerf the poise of it.

This armor with the bull goat amulet are the best combo for 30 endurance builds, leaves a good amount of weight for weapons as well and gets 105 poise to tank a lot of different weapons.

                                                                                  • Anonymous
