The Alva Set is a medium armor set in Dark Souls II.



Set worn by Alva the Wayfarer, a knight who searched many lands for a cure to Saint Serreta's sickness, yet ultimately failed and relinquished his knighthood. Alva himself was eventually seduced by Zullie the Witch, which could explain why he failed to find a cure for Saint Serreta's illness, possibly due to Zullie taking his attention away from the matter with her cunning and trickery to ruin his life.

While Alva himself is not present in the game, a phantom does don his armor.

Characteristics Edit

Offering moderate defenses for a lighter medium set, Alva's Set is a great alternative for players who wish to don a reliable set of armor, while not being hampered by excessive weight. The set boasts poise identical to that of the Elite Knight Set, while weighing several units less than it, but with overall reduced defenses to compensate.

  • Try to avoid using the gauntlets as almost any light armor gloves have higher physical and elemental defenses, with the only sacrifice being a negligible 4 poise.


  • Upgrades with Titanite.
