The Undead Legion Set is one of the lightest medium armor sets obtainable, and it possesses rather unusual traits for a set of its class.
Despite being very light, it offers overall remarkable defenses and resistances, but falls short when it comes to poise, which in turn, is very low for a medium armor set.
It does, however, have spectacular elemental defenses (although it has a noticeable intolerance to the Dark), as well as overall solid resistances to the various negative status effects within the game. This, as a result, makes it a popular choice when traversing areas where both elemental damage and status debuffs are present, such as Irithyll.
What sets this set apart from others, on the other hand, is how it handles physical damage absorption. It is indeed more robust against strike attacks, which is unusual for a medium armor set, but unlike most medium sets, it has a severe weakness to slash attacks.
Overall, it is a respectable and protective armor set, but one should remain cautious of slashing attacks, which is, in most cases, a common threat found in the game.
