Despite being on the lower end of heavy armor sets, Ornstein's set boasts strong physical defenses, being equally resistant to Slash and Thrust damage; however, like most other plate metal armor sets, it has a weakness to Strike damage. As protection worn by one who harnessed the power of lightning to slay fire-breathing dragons, its elemental defenses are also very sound, being equally resistant against Fire and Lightning damage, though as armor worn by a servant to the divinity it is also particularly weak to Dark damage. Its resistance to status effects is very sound across the board, being particularly resistant to Bleed buildup.
As with all other heavy armor sets, the Dragonslayer Set provides a strong poise-to-weight ratio, though it should be noted that as Ornstein's spear does not possess any Hyper Armor frames in Dark Souls III, it is of little help except when wielding heavier weapons.
