    Personally I like using complete armor sets. So far my favorites have been the silver knight armor with the black knight shield, for my medium melee build, and the pyromancer set with the crest shield, for my glass cannon caster/melee hybrid.

    Gender: female (REALLY important with this armor combo)
    Hair: Grey

    Head: Brigand hood
    Torso: Cleric armor
    Hands: Black iron gauntlets
    Legs: Bloodstained skirt

    Weapons: Small leather shield + Scythe (regular)


    All these create very good and realistic black/brown armor combination that fits together really nicely.

I usually just go round in full giant's, or sometimes i'll swap out the gauntlets + leggings for havel's if I want to look a bit less top-heavy.

    Also just thought i'd ask: how long did it take all of you to create your armour setup? I wouldn't have the patience to try out every single armour combo in the game.

    Please, don't be that guy...

    If you don't try to look good or silly in your own way, you're missing out on one of the main factors of what makes an 'RPG' fun. You say that yet you're worried about your looks being top-heavy. Way to contradict yourself, man... Not hatin', just sayin'. =/

    I wasn't trying to be "that guy", I was just saying effectiveness > looks IMO. I actually think full giants looks really good tbh, I think people are just sick of seeing it in pvp. I'd also prefer to have a full set of something ideally for consistency, apart from the giants/havels combo I mentioned.

    At the moment im using

    Elite knight helm
    Hollow thief armor
    Silver knight gauntlets
    Leggings of Artorias

    With the use of the Greatsword my char looks pretty awesome using this set, but it dose take some getting use too

    Thief Mask, Chester's Longcoat, Black Iron Gauntlets and Leggings. The gauntlets match up perfectly to where the cuffs are rolled, and the leggings mixed with the coat achieve the wanderer/warrior mix I was going for.

    I have two armor sets that I constantly use, one for good defense and the other for being a dex/archer type of build.

    Defense:

    Gough's Helm
    Steel Armor
    Giant Gauntlets
    Black Iron Leggings

    Dex/Archer

    Hollow Thief's Hood
    Black Leather Armor
    Gough's Gauntlets
    Heavy Boots

    Gough's Gauntlets + Black Leather Armor looks awesome in my opinion. Especially when using a bow. 8)
