Elden Ring Armor Tier List

Armor maketh the Tarnished.

Eldon Ring has more armor and clothing options than one can shake a stick at. While everyone knows that the best armor options are fashion-based choices, we had to be a little more subjective with this list. Each tier is rated based on its stats and how well it pairs with the many different builds available.
