Trading the following items with Pickle Pee will net all four armor pieces:
- Lightning Urn gives the Iron Helm.
- Siegbräu gives the Armor of the Sun.
- Homeward Bone gives the Iron Bracelets.
- Seed of a Giant Tree gives the Iron Leggings.
Iconic set renown for having been worn by Solaire of Astora in Dark Souls, appearing now as sort of an Easter Egg. Each piece provides very good stats for the early game, although some eventually become outclassed by other pieces that have similar weight.
The helmet provides excellent defenses in all regards, even later in the game.
The chest piece provides excellent defenses and completely outclasses both the Armor of Thorns and the Herald Armor, with which it shares almost the same weight. While it starts falling short to heavier pieces, as expected, it still provides an impressive amount of Poise at 10.3 points, which may make it worth keeping after all.
The bracelets can be easily obtained the first time one sets foot on Firelink Shrine by jumping onto the shrine's rooftop from a nearby tree and trading a Homeward Bone with Pickle Pee. They provide excellent defenses in all regards for the first two areas of the game, but become completely obsolete once the Brigand Gauntlets are found, which share the same weight but with better stats.
Since the leggings require a Seed of a Giant Tree to be traded, which has a rather low chance of spawning after each invasion, they will most likely already become obsolete by the time the player can get their hands on them.
