To obtain this set the player must:
- Defeat the first Drakeblood Knight that is summoned by the first Man Serpent Summoner found in Archdragon Peak. A Havel imposter may be summoned instead, so be sure to specifically defeat the Drakeblood Knight.
- Travel to the Consumed King's Garden to where the "Path of the Dragon" gesture was acquired. The set is available on a corpse.
The Drakeblood Set is arguably one of the most well-balanced heavy armor sets found within the game.
It boasts a consistent damage absorption across the chart due to its high physical and elemental absorptions, and although it does have a weakness for lightning and dark damage, these two defenses are notably higher than most other heavy armor sets. It does have a slight weakness for thrust attacks, however, more so than strike attacks.While its status resistances are overall average for a heavy armor set, this armor set boasts an incredibly high resistance to bleed, surpassing even Havel's Set and Smough's Set in this aspect, while weighing nearly half the weight.
