In-Game Description

Mysterious items once worn by the Xanthous King Jeremiah, the legendary exile. No one knows where it came from.
They may be tattered, but its bright yellow color still stings the eyes.


Found on a corpse in the Painted World of Ariamis behind Crossbreed Priscilla whether or not the player has killed her. The player must first defeat black phantom Xanthous King, Jeremiah for this armor to appear. The corpse may not spawn the first time the player visits Priscilla; quitting and reloading the game should cause it to appear.


This set offers good magic and lightning resist but very little fire resist. It also has above average poison resist and  unusually more defense against strike attacks than the other types of attacks, but is weaker to thrust attacks. It possesses no curse resist at all.


Requires 200 souls per upgrade.
