sabatons aren't even supposed to be worn off of horseback, especially if you want to be agile (like a hunter). they should have just had a nice set of black knee-high boots with some metal plates added

I personally like the sabatons. I think they're fairly fitting, as these are royal knights as opposed to hunters, and judging from the presence of both horses and statues of knights on horses at Cainhurst Castle and in the Queen's throne room, it's highly likely that they were worn on horseback.

In a game where formless Old Ones impregnate women during a certain moonphase and a beast curse had taken over I find it highly unlikely that this games sellpoint was realism

I have to say that this armor has quite the resemblance to the Alonne Knight set, Alonne Captain set, and the Sir Alonne set, especially the face mask. Of course with the Chikage then i think its a nice nod to Sir Alonne, even if he would have never approved of the Vilebloods

It does, sort of. Although there's also a resemblance to the Berserker Armour from Berserk, which is the more likely of the two resemblances that was intended, since the Souls games borrow from Berserk alot.

It depends on the situation. If your fighting brick trolls, prob not the best choice, but its a solid choice as most attacks are physical. Solid choice against most hostile npc hunters as weapons like saw cleaver, threaded cane, henryks saw spear...etc primarily deal physical and blood(guns). Lets also not forget that the game is heavily dodge oriented. Even if defence is low, as long as you dodge you will be fine.

^wouldn't be surprised. Miyasaki has used berserk as inspiration for the souls series. For example the wheel skeletons were just shamelessly lifted from the manga. Not that its a bad thing, afterall berserks an excellent source for dark fantasy.

"...This paper-thin silver armor is said to deflect blood of ill-intent, and is what allows the royal guards to capture prey for their beloved Queen, so that one day, she may bear a Child of Blood." Any significance to the vileblood covenant? Description seems to imply the armor is what allows the collection of prey, whatever that means.

blood dregs = sperm your goal is to impregnate the vileblood queen with blood sperm that she can bear offspring. look at the icon for blood dregs. it's clearly sperm.

maybe the vilebloods captured prey alive and brought them back to cainhurst, or maybe they lured prey to cainhurst where they would then be captured by royal guards.

It's often hunters that drop blood dregs and as the armor is very bullet resistant, as bullets deal blood damage, this means its sort of an anti hunter armor in a way. Lets not forget the high physical defence, as most hunters would cut up beasts with slashing attacks. Back in the day with Ludwig making hunters of normal citizens(Yharnam hunter attire info) many of these newer and prob weaker hunters could had been murdered by vilebloods and sacrificed to their queen. This eventually lead to logarius smashing the hell out of all the vilebloods.

The Yahar'gul Black Trousers have the same Melee Def but with higher blunt (+20) Slow poison, Frenzy and Beast hood. The Cainhurst beats them in blood and Rapid poison.
