9. The Ancient Armor Set
The “Ancient Armor Set” is a great early game that you should obtain as soon as you can. In order to craft it, you need to kill Ancients to obtain Ancient Hearts and Ancient Rubble. Each armor piece from this set contains Elemental Shielding perk which increases all elemental resistance by 15%, wearing each piece will let you stack up to 45%.
8. Brok’s Royal Dwarven Armor Set
Once you have completed the “Hail to the King” side mission from Sindri and Brok, you’ll then have access to craft two legendary armor sets. One of these is Brok’s Royal Dwarven Armor Set. You’ll need to obtain pristine ores, pristine dust, and pristine scales to craft both of them. The bonus perk from each piece armor in this set contains Raging Fury. This perk increases the Rage gained by 10%(Rage is a great offensive tool), with each piece stacking up to 30%.
7. Sindri’s Royal Dwarven Armor Set
Sindri’s Set is a good mix of offense and defense. This legendary set can be bought from Brok and Sindri, and it can be upgraded twice. It is comprised of Sindri’s Royal Dwarven Breastplate, Sindri’s Royal Dwarven Gauntlets, and Sindri’s Royal Dwarven Waist Guard.

6. The Traveller Armor Set
The Traveller Armor Set will require you to defeat the various Travellers throughout the map. Each armor piece will increase Kratos’s vitality. This piece contains the Protection of Traveller perk, which gives you a protective barrier that will absorb a single attack. This barrier will slowly regenerate so you can use it consistently.
5. The Smouldering Brimstone Armor Set
To craft this armor set you’ll need to obtain Smouldering Embers, Crests of Surtr, and Pristine Ores. What makes this set great is that each piece contains the Aura of Fire perk. Activating Aura of Fire increases strength and restores some health after the damage has been taken. Wearing all three-piece of armor will increase the chance of Aura of Fire, so it’s best to equip the full armor set.
4. Fallen Ash Armor Set
To craft this armor set, you’ll need the same materials that are needed for the Smoldering set, which include Smoldering Embers, Crests of Surtr, and Pristine Ores. This armor set can turn Kratos into a walking inferno, igniting enemies around you. The Retaliation of Fire perk from this set gives Kratos the chance to burn nearby enemies when damage is taken.

3. Ivaldi’s Armor Set of Deadly Mist
Ivaldi’s Armor Set of Deadly Mist is definitely the best armor set in the original base game. The Deadly Mist armor pieces contain all the Regenerating Essence perk, which adds a small amount of health regeneration. This perk can also stack up to 5 times.
2. Ares Armor Set
This Armor Set will be available to craft once you defeat Hraezlyr. You’ll need Skap Slag and Hacksilver to craft this set. If you wanted to do a strictly Rage build, then this set is for you. The Rage Fiend perk massively increases the Rage that is gained. The kicker that is Rage bar will drain faster after being activated.
1. Zeus Armor Set
Lastly, the Zeus Armor Set. The Zeus Armor Set is the best armor set in the entire game. It’s also the most dangerous and hardest to obtain since you’ll need to defeat all of the Valkyries in the New Game Plus. What’ makes it such a dangerous set is that it contains Glass Ballista perk. This amazing perk massively increases Kratos’s attacks, while simultaneously increasing the damage he takes. The damage boost given is absolutely incredible, which makes up for the high risk you’ll have playing.
