The Herald Set is a medium armor set in Dark Souls III.


Found on a corpse guarded by a Cathedral Evangelist on the way to the Cathedral of the Deep in the area immediately after the Crystal Sage boss fight.


Offers decent physical damage absorption against attacks that are not strike attacks, for which it lacks an adequate absorption against.

The elemental defenses and resistances are average for its weight class, except for its lightning defense, which is significantly lower than other armor sets. For its weight, it provides a fair amount of poise.

Has a weakness against the Undead Curse.

Notes Edit

  • Despite the leggings claiming to be insulated to "complement" steel armor, while the strike damage absorption is much better, the lightning defense remains very poor.
  • Additionally, it would be wise to outright avoid using the gloves, as they provide mediocre defenses, and a very low lightning and strike damage absorption, despite being made of leather, which is typically more resistant to these forms of damage.
  • Wearing the Thunder Stoneplate Ring can help mitigate the low lightning absorption.
