|Type||Heavy Armor Set|
Smough's Set initially offers the highest Physical and Elemental defense among the heavy sets, and a remarkable Bleed resistance, but cannot be upgraded. This puts it at a disadvantage against upgradeable armor sets in its weight class; for example, the fully upgraded Giant Set is superior in almost every way. However Smough's Set does offer a small but notable amount of Curse resistance.
However, Smough's set offers the highest lightning and bleed resistance available among the heavy sets, and even when upgrades are accounted for, it is one of the three best heavy sets in all fields except Poise and Weight, where it is in fourth and fifth place, respectively. Overall, this makes it a solid all-around armor that requires very little investment.
According to an interview; Smough's Set is Hidetaka Miyazaki's, favorite armor design.
