If you find yourself on NG++ or higher and want to reset difficulty in terms of boss damage, go grab this set - in NG+++ it's like night and day. One moment, the Four Kings are blasting you - the next, you're blasting them. For people wanting to go through higher levels and not intent on dodging everything, this may be the best set going. It is ugly, though. Very ugly. Love the helm though for that spartan look. Pieces on it are also phenomenal for poise and fashion - on my SL49 pyro murder machine, I tend to have the gauntlets and helm at +5 with knight's leggings and wanderer's chest at max. With a +5 chaos claymore and a +5 lightning bastard sword and ascended pyromancy glove, you are far more dangerous than giant dad with this set up.
