For the Dark Souls variant, see Favor Set.

The Set of Favor is a heavy armor set in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Armor of the pitiable Embraced knight.
Depicts the affection of the goddess Fina.
The face is crafted to depict the goddess's embrace, quite ignoring the fact that her love is in fact as fickle as the weather.


Purchased from the Shrine Handmaid for a total of 31,000 souls after defeating the two Sulyvahn's Beasts in the Water Reserve.


Returning from Dark Souls, the Set of Favor is on the lighter end of its weight class but provides good defenses to back up the cost.

With strong physical defenses, the set is not overly vulnerable to Strike damage, being only slightly below that of its other physical resistances. Its elemental defenses are overall mediocre, but it possesses a severe weakness to Lightning damage, moreso than most other plate metal sets. It has strong overall resistances to status effects, possessing respectable resistance to Bleed and being resistant to Frost buildup as well.

Despite being on the low end of heavy armor sets, the Set of Favor has good Poise. This allows it to make Hyper Armor trades quite effectively when wielding large weapons.
