Armor after four kings?

I just beat the 4 kings and still have the crimson robes on. What would you recommend for the rest of the game?

Wear whatever you think looks good, making sure that you can move comfortably and roll properly. Cos' in a game where you can completely negate damage, you dont need defense of any sort.

That's my goal is an agile build and with crimson robes I have that. I was just thinking this far into the game maybe there is armor that is that light and maybe Is a little better.

Trying to tank hits won't work, and poise is only really useful for pvp since most bosses don't attack quickly enough to stunlock you or break poise no matter what your poise is. You should either block or dodge enemy hits. I recommend you stay below 25% equip load but below 50% works fine mostly. I usually wear whatever I think looks good, which is moonlight robes for pve or paladin armour (poise) for pvp

The high end armours when highly upgraded will give you decent defence in your first game, but they are so heavy and you will likely have so little endurance in your first playthrough that you wont be able to dodge properly and they will just grind you down gradually

A good set to choose imo is the Xanthous set minus the crown it still has great defense and weighs only slightly more than the crimson.
