The Sunset Set is one of the lightest sets in the heavy category, and as a result possesses characteristics often found in medium armor sets.
With its high weight cost, the set provides relatively reliable defense against most forms of physical damage. Like other plate metal sets it is quite weak to Strike damage, though it resists Slash damage quite well. Its elemental defenses can be found wanting, having mediocre absorption values at best and severe weaknesses to Magic and Lightning. It can resist status effects fairly reliably for the most part, but is somewhat vulnerable to Frost.
Because of its low weight, the Sunset Set has a relatively poor poise-to-weight ratio, limiting its effectiveness to trading when fighting into weapons with no Hyper Armor frames, or when wielding weapons larger than Curved Greatswords.
