Throughout my extensive gameplay, I’ve realized that besides weapons and sorceries, having good armor tailored to your ideal play style is essential for these characters. You must find a complete set like Helmet, Chest piece, Gauntlets, and Greaves to achieve your character’s total Damage Negation stats. 

5. Haligtree Knight Set

Best Armor for High Defense.

Haligtree Knight’s stats reveal it is medium-weight armor. This quality makes the armor suitable for players who seek close-quarters combat through melee weapons. However, ranged weapons builds can also benefit from Haligtree Knight for both defenses and fashion statements.

I suggest you add this armor set for your character because of its unique effect that increases Faith. This means acquiring this armor in your playthrough will add value to the faith attributes stats. 

Why did I Choose the Haligtree Knight Set?

The Haligtree Knight Set stands out for its solid overall defense and an added boost to the character’s Faith attribute, which I found important for Faith-based playstyles.

Obtaining the complete set is a little tricky process. But following my steps will allow you to get your hands on the Haligtree Knight easily.

  1. All you need to do is to go to Elphael’s Inner Wall.
  2. After leaving the hall, you encounter numerous enemies wearing the Haligtree Knight armor.
  3. The only way to obtain the complete set is to fight these enemies and loot them off their corpses.
  4. These are medium-level enemies, so bring some Flasks to restore your health.

  • High Physical Damage Negation.
  • Offers exceptional defense.
  • Boosts faith for Faith-based builds.
  • Well-Rounded Defenses.

  • Medium weight might impact agility and movement.

4. Commoner’s Set

Best Faith Armor for Magic Defense.

If you want to increase Faith values, Commoner’s set is the perfect choice. Commoners also come with four armor pieces: Helmet, Chest, Gauntlets, and Leg armor. However, only the Chest piece grants Faith for your character. 

Unfortunately, Commoner’s Set does not offer promising Physical Damage Negation. Physical Damage Negation only stands at 7.7. However, it goes hand in hand with Magical, Holy, and Fire Damage Negation with 24.3, 24.3, and 22.9, respectively.

The stats show Commoner’s set is ideal for pure magic, and incantations build., thus making it the contender among the best faith armor.

Why did I Choose Commoner’s Set?

While lacking in physical defense, the Commoner’s Set greatly benefits Faith-based builds with its added Faith attribute and decent elemental protection.

To acquire your complete set of Commoner’s armor, you will have to pay a visit to the old Stormviel Caste. Here, you will be farming on the Commoner’s enemies as they have chances to drop individual pieces of the set. This way, you can complete your Commoner’s set and pursue your required playthrough.

  • Boosts Faith.

  • Low Physical Damage Negation.

3. Black Knife Set

Best Faith Armor for Stealth & Physical Defense.

It is a stealth-focused assassin armor with the best Damage Negation stats any armor can offer to beginner players. Plus, it will allow players to utilize Faith’s abilities to cast spells and incantations throughout the gameplay. 

Although, Black Knife is the heavy armor set, which will halt the performance for fast-paced gameplay. But what this armor lacks in the fat rolls and speed, it makes up for stealth action and a total Physical Damage Negation of 24.5.

Why did I Choose Black Knife Set?

The Black Knife Set is perfect for players seeking a stealthy approach while ensuring strong physical defense, though at the cost of agility.

There is a total of four pieces that you need to find to achieve this Damage Negation. This includes Hoods, Chest piece, Gauntlets, and Greaves. However, you can obtain all of them at once from a single location without worrying about encountering enemies or bosses.

  • Heavy armor hampers agility.

2. Cleanrot Armor

Best Faith Armor for Balanced Defense & Fashion.

Cleanrot might not add Faith to your build. But still, it is one of the best options with the Faith build for the character defenses. 

The cherry on top is readily available for players to acquire by fighting the Cleanrot Knights. They can be found at one of the shadiest locations in the Land Between, the Swamp of Aeonia. Farming on these Cleanrot Knights will allow you to obtain the complete set of the Cleanrot Armor. 

Why did I Choose Cleanrot Armor?

Despite not directly enhancing Faith, the Cleanrot Armor offers a balanced defense and impressive aesthetics, making it a good choice for different builds.

If you need to enhance your Faith, replace the Cleanrot Helmet with Ruler’s Mask. For that, you will visit the Altus Plateau to find a corpse. Following the west side of the Site of Grace, you will see a corpse on one abandoned structure. Looting the corpse will give you the Ruler’s Mask to combine with the Cleanrot Set.

1. Crucible Tree Set

Best Faith Armor for Incantation Enhancement.

Lastly, the Crucible Tree set needs prominent attention from the Faith-focused builds. The Crucible Tree set looks good and offers decent Physical Damage Negation of a whooping 38.3.

Why did I Choose Crucible Tree Set?

The Crucible Tree Set shines with its outstanding physical defense and added incantation enhancement, catering well to robust Faith-focused playstyles despite its weight.

Before hunting the Crucible Tree set, you must ensure you defeat Starscourge Radahn to unlock the Deeproot Depths location. Killing Radahn will allow you to enter Nokron Eternal City and complete the storyline objectives. Once you finish the objectives, you will enter the Deeproot Depths. 

Here, you will be fighting the Crucible Knight Siluria. You will find a chest behind him containing the full set of mighty Crucible Tree.

What Would I Recommend?

For players seeking to enhance their Faith attributes, several armor sets stand out as ideal choices. I strongly recommend going with the Haligtree Knight Set as it shines with its exceptional defense and boosted faith attribute, offering a balanced approach for various playstyles. The Commoner’s Set also provides an added faith value and decent elemental defense, perfect for those focusing on magic and incantations early in the game.
