God of War: Ragnarok has a lot of gear that you can get organically or by completing the side missions but the best armor sets are trickier to find. In this God of War: Ragnarok guide, we go over some of the best armor sets that you can get at different stages of the game.

Best Armor Sets In God Of War: Ragnarok

The following are our recommendations for the best armor sets in God of War: Ragnarok, early-game, mid-game and end-game.

Best Early-Game Armor Set

While the pre-order bonus armor set for the standard edition of the game looks fantastic and works well if you like juggling enemies, we recommend going for the Nidavellir armor set. You can get this early on by taking part in the Service of Asgard favor which will have you destroy the mining rigs in order to get Nidavellir Ore.

You can then take the Nidavellir Ore to the Dwarf brothers to craft the armor set. This set is excellent as it regenerates health. Its stats include Vitality and Strength, which can be important for surviving in the early segments of the game.

Best Mid-Game Armor Set

Once you are in the mid-game, things are going to get a bit more challenging and you will need better gear. This is where we recommend getting the Lunda’s Lost Cuirass armor set. The chest piece perk allows you to poison enemies when attacking with your hands, parrying, or blocking. Even if you are not big on parrying and prefer blocking and dodging, this can come in handy. When an enemy is poisoned, its level drops, making it weaker. So your attacks get stronger allowing you to deal more damage.

The full set allows you to deal up to 40% extra damage to enemies that are poisoned. So this is a must-have armor in the mid-game section of God of War: Ragnarok. I actually finished the game and defeated most of the Berserkers with this armor set. Getting the armor does take a while as you get a quest from Luna to find a missing orb. You can find the armor pieces while progressing the side mission. Once you have them, bring them back to Lunda and she will craft the armor for free. The stats of the chest piece include Strength, Defence, Runic, and Luck.

Best End-Game Armor Sets

The Steinbjorn armor set is one of the best that you can use in the end game. It allows you to heal yourself when your health is depleted significantly. This can be a major game-changer and can even help you in some of the post-game boss fights. To get the armor, you need to awaken 4 sleeping trolls and then defeat them. For more details, you can check out our guide on how you can get the Steinbjorn armor set.

We can also recommend the Berserker armor set which you can get by defeating the optional Berserker bosses. It triggers soul explosions that deal damage and also restores the cooldown of the relic. Allowing you to use the relic more often.

These are some of the best armor sets that you can get in God of War: Ragnarok. If you are interested in learning more about the game then you can check out our guide on how you can fight The Everlasting secret dragon boss.
