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.

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

        veteran set? check. rkr greatsword? check. max stack of every consumable in the game? check. yup, its sweatin time.

          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.

            Anyone know how much endurance i need to mid roll with this set+banished knight helm for fashion 2x iron greatsword and 1x greatmace

            I do also have great jars arsenal equipped btw.

              I actually really like how this armor looks. Shame like lapp's set it's mostly known for toxic tryhards using it.

                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.

                • Anonymous

                  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

                  • Anonymous

                    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.

                        • Anonymous

                          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.

                              "Ooh, armor with good poise and low weight, AND it looks cool? Sign me up!" ---scrolling down here--- why is everyone so mean I think the Bull-Goat chest piece is pretty :,(

                                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.

                                          Looks like something out of an ancient painting, reminiscent of the secret knight painting in lothric castle

                                            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

                                              Comparing this set to the Tree Sentinel set, they have identical weight and nearly identical damage negation (TS has a little more Fire while Vet has a little more VS Strike), but for some reason the Vet set has 19 more poise. Why? Who ****ing knows. Even if you do wear this, you'll still get staggered by rats.

                                                I don't know about rest of it but, Veteran's armor is the best(heavy) armor in the game thanks to it's cape.

                                                  I shouldn't be able to get 61 poise at SL1 because I'm wearing two pieces of veterans armor, and still have weight left over for a halberd. 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.

                                                    They need to increase the Weight of this armor, its stupid that its comparable to the heaviest armors for a lot less Weight.

                                                    Either that or nerf the poise of it.

                                                      The best armor in the game, but also one of the ugliest! I will judge your fashion if I see you wearing this.

                                                              The best armor set in the game. Huge poise and good defenses. Has the same poise as Lionel which is a lot heavier. 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

Just like in real life you have no control over when and how you will get murdered. It's good to be mentally prepared, but not much else you can do about it.

                                                                          • Anonymous

Sure, if you're PvPing in SL150+ area where people can pump 30 end while maintaining 60 vig and 80 damage stat. But this set is still far to heavy to use on lower soul levels unless you're investing in playing a tank. This is no different than the Elite Knight sets from Dark Souls for poise/weight.

The chest is way wider than the pants so it looks like your guy has thin legs unless you make your characters legs about 60 points bigger than your chest. And duck feet.


                                                                                Not that it matters, since every one with their patented unique rivers of blood setup will be wearing this regardless.

                                                                                        The kinda person who'd wear underpants on their head if a influencer told them it was cool.

                                                                                          And before you respond with your rose tinted glasses, Yes they will. They did it in Dark souls 1,2,3 and objectivly removed it from bloodborn because it wouldn't work. I think Miazaki man hoped that all the **** that exist in this game would even poise out better then other games, but proven it hasnt, and its all about the same **** like before, we all might as well enjoy the broken ass poise as it is for now, because soon enough it'll be gone.

                                                                                          • Anonymous

More than enough to tank a small weapon r1. Have fun trading.

Gotta be the most intuitive getup I've seen. Really nothing comes close to how revolutionary it is. Gotta say I'm impressed. Clearly wearing it for the drip too and I commend that daring fashion sense.

                                                                                                • Anonymous

The weight to poise ratio is by far the best in the game, and the physical defense is competitive with Lionel's set which is much heavier. I hope it's not nerfed, it's the only high poise armor that doesn't force you to have a beer belly. I hope the fact that it can only be found very late in the game warrants it being so strong.

                                                                                                  JSYK for PVP: Veteran's head + Veteran's chest + Scaled gloves + Bull-goat legs + Bull-goat talisman = exactly 111 poise. I'm sure there are other combinations but that's the one I use. 50 END with Erdtree's Favor talisman +2 gives enough equip load to use basically any weapon (depends slightly on your other talismans but I use the Prelate's Crozier and have about 2 pounds left over).
