For the Dark Souls variant, see Black Iron Set.

The Black Iron Set is a heavy armor set in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Chest piece made of black iron, from the set of armor for which Knightslayer Tsorig was infamously known.
Offers extensive and particularly effective protection from fire.


Sold by the Shrine Handmaid for a total of 21,500 souls after defeating Knight Slayer Tsorig in the Smouldering Lake.


Although it weighs in at the higher end of heavy armor sets, the Black Iron Set provides very strong protection against most forms of physical and elemental damage. It is extremely resilient against all forms of physical damage save for Strike, which is comparable to levels of protection offered mainly by medium armored sets. Its elemental defenses are fairly well-rounded, and it is exceptionally strong against Fire damage. It can resist status effect buildup quite well across the board, only really being weak to Curse.

Most importantly, it offers a very strong poise-to-weight ratio, with enough poise to trade against most other ultra weapons, when wielding an ultra-class weapon.
