4. Blaidd’s Armor set

The Blaidd Armor set doesn’t give you any stat buffs, but it will make you look like a badass, which counts for something, right?

Follow Ranni’s questline and after you give her the Dark Moon Ring, you’ll find a hostile Blaidd at Ranni’s Rise. Defeat him to get his armor, then head to Seluvis’ Rise to acquire the helmet, which is on a corpse on a wall right beside it to the southeast.

3. Cleanrot Knight set

Use the Cleanrot Knight set to boost your overall resistance to elemental effects.
