I've searched every thread that mentions it, and everyone always points to some image on the next with a person in full Templar Gear or something, but no real answer as to where the armor is, or when you can obtained it. I checked the Dragon Age wiki, and sure enough it mentions Sir Varnell's corpse, well i just killed that bastard and there was no armor, second it mentions you can get it from the shady merchant well i checked him during Act 2 and guess what... no templar armor. Is it not available on the ps3? I'll check on act 3, possibly with another save... but im getting kind of angry.
I have played through past Varnell several times and have not gotten any templar armor or pieces from him. I got a set of the body piece from Alrick once but it was rather weak. I got superior heavey boots and gloves from some other templars (don't remeber where I got those I think it was some of his men). I have never found or got a helm at all and only got the other templar armor pieces once. I think its a random thing. As a 2 hand warrior I like axes and they are few and far in between but once and only once I got a cool one off one of the 'something' revers in one of the wherehouses. I say if you really want some keep wackin' templars till one coughs it up. I did get the piggyback book I can check that and see waht it says about the armor too.
Sandal's father sells the templar amor in act 1 at random. I bought the helm and several weapons from him. Same goes for the shady dealer in act 1/ 2 at the docks, he sells the pieces at random. You can gather a full set, but its gonna take a bit of time unless your lucky.
