The Dark Set is an armor set in Dark Souls III.


Rare drops from the Darkwraiths in the game. Although not necessary, a player is encouraged to increase Luck by whichever means (Symbol of Avarice, Rusted Coin, etc.) before attempting to farm these rare drops.


The Dark Set is made of bones and crow feathers, making the wearer look like a skeleton. Unlike in the older games, the chest piece seems aged and broken, while in Dark Souls 1 and 2 the ribcage was not missing any bones. Also, this version of the armor has strangely malformed bones sticking out of the shoulders. The "hair" falling down from the skull mask is much more thin and transparent than in it's former versions, although this could come from better graphical capabilities.

The set is a rare drop from the Darkwraiths found in the Road of Sacrifices, High Wall of Lothric, or the Farron Keep.


  • There are only four Darkwraiths between the three mentioned locations; however, only the farron keep and road of sacrifices have respawning darkwraiths.
  • Unlike the preceeding games, this Dark Armor Set can only be found as a rare drop from the Darkwraiths.


The descriptions offered in the armor pieces clearly point to the Darkwraith's from Dark Souls as they were the ones responsible for collecting Humanity under the guidance of Darkstalker Kaathe. The area they pillaged for humanity was subsequently flooded in an attempt to stop the Darkwraiths from expanding.
