    Good Light Armor for a Sorcery Build?

    Post by Noob-of-Artorias on Fri May 25, 2012 3:19 am

    Just wondering what's a good armor set for a sorcery build?

    I'm getting into Blighttown and I'm gonna pick up the crimson set (which is way better than my vanilla sorcerer's set at this point) but after that I'm still up in the air.

    I know the Witches set is good, but I have to beat the 4 kings first tog get it...I was also thinking the Dingy Set, but the only problems is that I'll have to hunt down Lautrec.

    I'm probably gonna pick up the Crown of Dusk as well, but I don't like the look of the Antiquated set so I won't use the rest of it.

    I've always been partial to the Painting Guardian's set for light armor. It and the Hollow Thief set are some of the best looking lightweight gear in-game.

    the dingy set is picked up on the fire keepers corpse in firelink, and tru you'll have to kill lautrec but as a sorceror that should be easy. also the dingy chest and skirt are all you'll need, use dusk crown for the hat and maybe some sort of heavy gauntlets.

    I know how to get it, but is it any good, compared to the sage robes, witches robes, black sorcerer, ect?

    diny/maiden are some of the best light armors in the game, also the wonderer, pyro and the black and reg sorcere sets are really good once yo upgrade them too, theyre all good actually some are a little better and some are a lot better.

    Like with all my builds, I plan on capping out at 120, seems to be about the sweetspot.

    mugenmonkey.com/darksouls/?c=451800642

    This is what I've come up with, it's ultra powerful in sorcery, plus the fairly high dex and endurance/vitality still makes regular combat useful.

    The only thing I'm short on is poise, which I suppose I could fill in with Giants Gauntlets or Havels Gauntlets, those would give me about 21-23 poise.

    Realistically what would 21-23 Poise allow me to stand?

    For a light armor build, especially sorcery, I'd go with:

    Head - Crown of Dusk
    Torso - Dingy, Tattered, Antiquated, or Maiden
    Hands - Sorcerer's
    Legs - Hollow Soldier's, Xanthous, or Bloodstained

    If you really want to number crunch, there's now a downloadable spreadsheet on the Armor page.

    Wanderer set is great as far as light armor is concerned.

    I've decided and gone Full Dingy except for the Crown of Dusk, seems to be working out reasonable well. Right now I'm soul farming (Co-Oping) in Anor Londo until I can Get My Intelligence to 40 or so, then I'm gonna get my Dex and Endurance to 30.

    A bit pointless I guess to post after you've already decided, but i recommend the Xanthous set for a sorcerer, crappy headpiece leaves you free to use Crown of dusk and the rest has great defense.
