Armor Set 19.8 Weight

Duelist Set is an Armor Set in Elden Ring. Duelist Set is a three piece set worn by the gladiatorial duelists and grave wardens. Sets of Armor in Elden Ring are typically composed of four armor pieces which are Helms, Chest Armor, Gauntlets, and Leg Armor.


Where to find Duelist Set in Elden Ring

  • The Duelist Set pieces can be dropped as loot from the Duelist enemies located in Leyndell, Royal Capital.
  • There is an apparent Colosseum on a hill in the southwest area of the city that has two Duelists, one patrolling the path and one at the top. Both of these enemies have a chance to drop all three pieces.
  • Start from the West Capital Ramparts and head out the door on the right (south west door). Continue along the path, towards and past the enemies ahead. You should pass under the large tree branch, and up the stairs. Once reaching the grassy area head to your right to find the first duelist. Follow the path up to the large doors, the second duelist is standing in front of them.
  • Can't be farmed after beating Maliketh, The Black Blade as the Duelists vanish afterwards.

Duelist Set Elden Ring Notes and Tips

  • The Gravekeeper Cloak (Altered) removes the cloak, leaving only the snake bracelets, giving the set the appearance of the Rotten Duelists found in the overworld.
  • There is a variant Scarlet Rot themed version Rotten Duelist Set, with slightly lower damage negation but slightly higher resistances.
  • The hood on the Gravekeeper Cloak will only be worn over either the Duelist Helm or the Rotten Duelist Helm.
  • Each piece of this set provides the effect similar to Shabriri's Woe, drawing the aggro of nearby enemies.
    • The Gravekeeper Cloak only has the effect while altered.

      Does the hood always fit over the helmets you equip, or does it change to fit beneath certain helmets, like how the crimson hood changes to fit over armor?

        I tested a few different arm pieces that won’t interrupt the coils, seems some (maybe all?) of the Manchettes work. Lusats, Azurs, and Battlemage. Azur’s keeps the green theme going.

          After testing this and Shabriri's Woe, I have genuinely no idea if either this armor doesn't work to increase aggro range, shabriri's doesn't work to increase aggro range, or that every enemy I tested somehow has a pre-scripted aggro 'line' I crossed. Tested in leyndell capital rampart. Killed first bubble blower, slowly walked down the stairs to the second. In full black knife, spotted a quarter down the steps. With shabriri's, same. With a single piece of gladiator, same. With full gladiator, same. With gladiator+shabriri's, same. Tested on a demi-human with the spiked club, sitting on the path to Lux Ruins. Slowly walked into sight range, all same tests, all same ranges, again. Tested on a random foot soldier in a camp in Altus, all same tests, all same ranges, again. Yes, my gladiator hood is altered to reveal the snakes. Yes, I only tested at daytime. No, I don't have Crepus's Vial equipped. No, I'm not using Assassin's Gambit in the fight up to the test. Or maybe it "draws aggro" in a different way? Doesn't seem to increase enemy aggression, bosses still seem to care more about who last hit them (tested with Mausoleum Soldier Ashes and Lhutel Ashes), enemies still seem to only attack one at a time.

          I'm starting to think this might be just lore, and that Shabriri's Woe is like the DS1 Pendant as a starting gift...

            If you want a hood to go with the cloak that looks very similar, but less big + shows your face, try the Fire Monk Hood.

              Can anyone drop this set for me on PC? Steam? Do I have to be up to Leyndell, Royal Capital, for someone to drop it?

                Actually after burning the tree you can still farm the set.
                Go to Sainted Hero's Grave there's a shadow Duelist which you need to lure into light to make him get damage. This also unlocks the path to the boss room. Didn't check if he respawns but if you can farm it as i got the helmet on accident from him. If he doesn't respawn nevermind me.

                  If you are wondering what Gauntlets to use with it the Bandit Manchettes are a nice pick they dont hide the serpent arm adornments and make you look a little more scrappy as a duelist, you can get the bandit gear (save for the mask which is from a Nomad Merchant) from Gatekeeper Gostoc or just start as a bandit and have a friend pick them up in Limgrave to give to your main character if you can't buy them from Gostoc.

                    Similar to what others have posted, took a little over 30 attempts killing both the duellists to complete the full armour set, this was without using the silver feet.

                      The steps to get this set "early game", without glitching, is a huge pain in the ass. Honestly just ask someone to trade you for it for something you may have on another character, or in exchange for helping someone transferring items to another character.

                        Farmed this set yesterday, took about 30 tries killing the two duellists in Leyndell with the silver pickled fowl foot to get the full set. The helm was the last one to drop but I got two sets of cloaks, two greaves and two axes first. Would highly recommend the item discovery

                        • Anonymous

                          I would definitely suggest going to grab the silver pickled four toed fowl foot recipe (located on one of the bodies in the smoldering church which is on the way to Caelid from Limgrave) and having a decent store just to increase the chances of getting the item (not sure about the Rowa Berries but you can farm four toed fowl foot pretty easily on the beach near the fourth church of marika in the weeping peninsula and you can pretty easily get silver crickets in the groveside cave north of the church of elleh in limgrave this might not be optimal but it's something you can find early).
                          I'm pretty unlucky but I grinded for about 3 hours without it on my Int/dex character (only 14 arcane with godrick's) and got basically nothing but once I started using the foots and ran in from the west rampart grace (if you run behind the gargoyle it won't aggro) I was able to kill them fast enough to get two full runs in before the fowl foot ran out and successfully got the set within about an hour and half of grinding. IMPORTANT NOTE, keep in mind that you need to run back and rest normally at the grace. teleporting removes the buff from the fowl foot and the fastest I was able to do it with a +6 moonveil let me get 4 kills in while under the boosted item discovery.

                          Use the fowl foot when you're not too far behind the duelist on the path (within sneaking distance) and after the run back to rest and get back to the path you should have just enough time to kill both duelists while still under the effect. After this just warp back to the west rampart because the effect will probably run out anyway. If you can kill them faster you might be able to get more runs in but the run back is pretty long so I'm not sure. Likewise if you kill them slow enough that it doesn't last for the two kills after resting and running back you're better off just warping back and using another foot and just stockpiling more of those beforehand.

                          I know most of this is common sense but just putting this here to save people some time if they don't really think about optomizing grinds for items.

                            I am using the Erdtree sanctuary bonfire,go outside,jump on the second big vase and onto the branch,then drop to the one under(where you can jump attack a guardian too) and from there hop down and walk to the colosseum.
                            The fall hits a bit hard but beside that is the quickest way I’ve found to farm them.

                              Oh for the love of god I've been farming this thing for 3 hours thinking I'm not getting any gloves and it turns out it doesn't have gloves kill me right now

                                Anyone have any luck getting any of the set to drop after the patch. Been grinding for the greaves but not seeing any of the other items drop as well

                                  So what exactly does the special effect do? Take more damage? less i-frames on dodges? Bigger aggro range?

                                  • Does the hood on the top only work with this specific helmet? I would love the hood to be up when helmetless or with other helmets but generally sets only have their hoods work in their set only.

                                      Kinda dumb that if you progress the game too far (aka changing the capital) these guys disappear and you never have access to their armor again until a new game cycle. Cool set, wanted it really bad but I found out about it after I beat that giant dude in the mountaintops.

                                        If you are planning to farm this set, do it before killing Fire Giant boss and resting on site of grace on that big vessel next to boss arena. Those enemies will vanish from capital completely

                                          Southwest actually, but I can confirm that I've gotten pieces of the armor from the Duelists there as well as copies of the Battle Hammer weapon. Not sure if there are any particularly close-by graces to it, but I'm using the Fortified Manor, First Floor grace and just heading outside, going right and up the root until you can drop off the right and fight them and while it's not super quick, it works.
