For the Dark Souls II variant, see Alva Set.

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

AvailabilityEdit

The entire set is found on a corpse near Karla's cell in Irithyll Dungeon, on the lowest level guarded by numerous Jailers. The set will only appear once Alva, Seeker of the Spurned has been defeated in the area between the Distant Manor and Irithyll Dungeon bonfires.

CharacteristicsEdit

The Alva Set is a fairly well-rounded armor set which offers more Poise and higher status resistances relative to its weight than most other medium sets, although its physical and elemental absorption are average for its weight, if not slightly weaker.

It is similar in defense spread compared to the Elite Knight Set. While it has slightly weaker physical defenses, it offers better Lightning and Dark defenses, and has a marginal advantage in staving off Bleed buildup. It also boasts a higher poise-to-weight ratio, making it more useful for builds utilizing Hyper Armor weapons.
