Dark Souls Armor Locations Guide

By   /   4 years ago


Considering the fact that survival is a tough job in Dark Souls, Armor has its importance as it can absorb some damage and your character can fight for relatively longer period. There are different types of armor sets associated with different classes.

You will get some of them right from the start while for others, you will either have to search some sections or purchase them from merchants. Let us take an overview of the defensive equipment available in the game.
