God Of War 2018 is now available on PC and it is a pretty solid port. There are plenty of armors to choose from in the game and in this God of War guide, we are going to go over the best armor for Kratos and Atreus and how you can get it.
Best Armor For Kratos And Atreus In God Of War 2018
The following is the best armor that we recommend for Kratos and Atreus In God Of War 2018:
Best Armor For Kratos
Kratos is going to be your main damage dealer. So you need that right armor in order to make the most of him and his abilities. The following are the armor sets that we recommend for Kratos.
Valkyrie Armor Set
The Valkyrie set is one of the best that you can get for Kratos in the game. It buffs your strength, defense, runic abilities, vitality, and cooldown. You can add enchantments to make it even better. You can get the different pieces as follows:
- Cuirass of the Valkyrie: Beat Hildr in Niflheim.
- Gauntlets of the Valkyrie: Beat Gondul in Muspelheim.
- Waist Guard of the Valkyrie: Beat Olrun in Alfheim.
With Cuirass of the Valkyrie equipt, you get access to the Warrior’s Unstoppable Aura skill. This has a low activation chance but it prevents interruptions by enemy attacks. With Gauntlets of the Valkyrie, you get access to the Refreshing Light skill which also has a low activation chance but instantly refreshes all your Runic Attack cooldowns when you kill an enemy with a Runic Attack. The waist Guard of the Valkyrie allows you to use the Arcane Runic which has a high chance of activation and gives you a Runic Blessing when using Runic attacks.
The Mist Armor is also highly recommended and can be unlocked by using Mist Echoes in Niflheim. Once you have traveled to Niflheim by using the World Tree, Sindri will give you a favor and ask you to collect 500 Mist Echoes. You can exchange those for the key to Ivaldi’s Workshop. In the workshop, you will find 9 pieces of Ivaldi’s Rusted Armor. You can use them to craft 3 full sets.
Each piece of armor starts at level 7 making it one of the best armor sets in God of War. You will need Haze Weaves, Niflheim Alloy, and Aesirbane to improve the armor pieces. You can find these resources by opening chests in the dungeons of Niflheim.
Zeus Armor Set
For the new game plus mode, we recommend going with the Zeus armor set. This is only available during the new game plus mode. Each of the armor pieces has three enchantment sockets. the following are the different armor pieces and how you can get them in God of War:
- Cuirass of Zeus: Beat Sigrun in Midgard.
- Gauntlets of Zeus: Beat Gondul in Muspelheim.
- War Belt of Zeus: Beat Hildr in Niflheim.
This armor set gives you access to the Glass Ballista effect which increases the attack damage that you do and receive. The effects increase as you wear more pieces.
Best Armor For Atreus
While Kratos does most of the heavy lifting, Atreus is a great support. You do need to give home decent armor in order to make the most of him.
Legendary Runic Vestment
This is one of the best armors in the game for Atreus as it greatly increases his recovery speed from enemy attacks. It will also allow Atreus to find Healthstones when Kratos is injured, increasing the potency of Healthsonts and his arrows deal more damage after a runic summon.
You can craft the armor from Brok or Sindri. This is going to cost you 60,000 Hacksilver and Hardened Svartalfheim Steel.
Tunic Of The Champion
This armor is ideal for the new game plus mode as it increases melee damage and recovery speed while decreasing the arrow recharge time. You can craft the armor from Brok or Sindri. This is going to cost you 136500 Hacksilver and 24 Skap Slag. You can get Skap Slag by opening red caskets, completing story missions, closing realm tears and trails in Muspelheim.
This is the best Armor that we can recommend for Kratos and Atreus in God of War 2018. If you are interested in learning more about the game then you can check out our guide on where you can find all the Valkyries in the game.
