There is no shortage of enemies that want to put an end to Kratos’ millennium-long career as God of War, so armor becomes all-important. Fortunately, God of War: Ragnarok offers dozens of ways to find armor, be it through side quests, crafting, or defeating certain enemies. But what armor sets are actually worth going out of your way for?
Best Armor Sets in God of War Ragnarok
God of War Ragnarok elevates armor in a whole new way, providing not only damage resistance but buffs and perks. Below is a tier list structured around armors that have reached level 9, with consideration taken for utility and the perks they provide. This tier list is better suited to mid-to-late game. Early to mid game, most armor sets are viable, and it all depends on your play style.
For The God of War Kratos Himself:
|S-tier||Steinbjorn Armor Set, Guiding Light Armor Set, Raven Tear Armor Set|
|A-tier||Radiance Armor Set, Surtr’s Scorched Armor Set, Dragon Scaled Armor, Vidar’s Pauldron of Might Armor Set|
|B-tier||Fallen Star Armor Set, Undying Pyre Armor Set, Mani’s Armor of Wisdom Set, Fate Breaker Armor Set, Lunda’s Lost Armor Set, Giptumadr’s Armor Set, Armor of Enlightenment Set, Spiritual Armor Set|
|C-tier||Sol’s Armor of Courage Set, Nidavellier’s Armor Set|
|Dogwater||Fortified Husk Armor Set, Survival Armor Set,|
Atreus armor, on the other hand, only offers cosmetic benefits. But that’s not going to stop me from rating the boy’s drip.
|S-tier||Brother’s Brand Vestment|
|B-tier||Risen Snow Tunic, Survival Garb|
|C-tier||Darkdale Attire, Jotnar’s Champion Garb|
