Hood changed to: "Hood worn by a Dark sorcerer. The man claims to have sealed himself away, but who's ever heard of sentient magic?
It is no doubt difficult to judge the veracity of the man's words, but this hood certainly seems to possess an unusual power."
"Robe/Gloves/Leggings worn by a Dark sorcerer. He calls himself Navlaan, now."

 

Set Location

  • Obtaining the full set requires getting the King's Ring and progressing to Aldia's Keep. All pieces of the set are found in mimic chests.
  • Dark Leggings are found at the entrance to Doors of Pharros, just before the first bonfire, along with Black Scorpion Stinger.
    • [Scholar of the First Sin] This mimic is moved futher down the way to Brightstone Cove Tseldora – jump into the well found near the first bonfire and follow the path to a broken house. Also, in this version the other item is Staff of Wisdom.
  • Dark Gauntlets are found in Earthen Peak, in a small storage room above mist gate to Mytha, filled with poison jars and stone bugs. Bonus item is Work Hook.
  • Dark Armor is found in Iron Keep. Travel to the second bonfire, proceed to cross the platform above the lava (where Ironclad Soldier tries to smash the bridge) and enter the room filled with falling platforms. Pull the lever to lower the platforms into the lava, then go up the stairs and along the platforms to the ladder that has been descended. Climb up, and a mimic will be directly to your right. Bonus item is lightning-infused Winged Spear.
    • [Scholar of the First Sin] This mimic is moved far back, to The Gutter: from the first bonfire, go forth and up a few slopes, then drop down to an island with few Hollows and one Coal Tar. Follow a ledge leading to another island with a tower – the mimic will be on the middle floor of that tower. Problem is, there's barely enough room to fight and when killed, mimic drops its loot one floor below (but still above the ground, and it's only possible to access that floor by precision rolling). The safest way is to use Lloyd's Talisman to put mimic to sleep and grab the loot. Another option is to lure the mimic outside, but it might fall off the island there.

 

 

Notes

  • Upgraded with Twinkling Titanite.
  • The Mask grants +1 to INT and FTH.
  • Chestpiece offers third highest dark defense (almost equal to that of Velstadt's set chestpiece) – the highest
    among medium and heavy armor sets.
  • Gauntlets offer the highest dark defense.

      For the Dark Armor piece (SOTFS), if you kill the mimic and the item falls below you to the other floor, a simple fix is to just quit the game through the in-game menu and reload the game. the item will be on the current floor where you killed him or where the mimic originally sits, rather than below you 1 floor.

        I looked up 2 separate videos on the location, and read the first part of the location here. <br/>But when I killed the mimic holding the chestpiece I was confused that it fell through the floor, so I went outside, started wildly swinging at the hollows on the ground floor and got exploded. Then actually decided to finish watching the videos, seems both mentioned it would happen. Plus the text up there also says it, I feel like a pancake.
