Havel's Set is a heavy armor set in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Armor as if hewn from a giant boulder. Highly protective, but excessively heavy.
The warriors who followed Havel the Rock never flinched, nor retreated from battle, crushing any foe that stood in their way.


Found on a corpse in the area guarded by the Stray Demon on the bridge above the Old Wolf of Farron bonfire. The corpse will only appear after defeating Havel the Rock in Archdragon Peak.


Havel's Set returns once more as one of the heaviest, yet most protective, armor sets in the game. Being lighter only than Smough's Set, the player will need to make a heavy investment in Vitality in order to be able to even move around, but the investment can be more than worth it if the set is used right.

The set provides extreme resistance to physical damage, with even its "weakness" to Strike damage being higher than the regular physical defenses of most other sets in the game. Its elemental defenses are lower but still sound across the board, being especially resistant to Fire damage to resist the breath of the dragons. Its resistance to status effects is also very well-rounded, even sporting resistance against Curse buildup.

Unsurprisingly, Havel's Set boasts extreme amounts of Poise, allowing the wielder to trade against virtually any attacks in the game while still poising through.
