God of War Ragnarok will have Kratos and Atreus take on new challenges in the nine realms. Kratos will need to gear up and purchase skills to prepare for the coming doom. Armor is different in God Of War Ragnarok; you can upgrade each armor set to max level. Here are the best armor sets to get early in God Of War Ragnarok.
Best overall armor set to get early God Of War Ragnarok
The best overall armor set to get early is the Nidavellir's set. This armor primarily gives Defence and Strength with some Vitality. The set's perk will give you a small health burst when stun-grabbing an enemy.
This set is purchasable from Brok and Sindri's shop after completing the In Service of Asgard side quest in Svartalfheim.
Best early game armor set in God Of War Ragnarok
The best early-game armor set to get early is the Vidar's set. This armor primarily gives Strength and some Defence. Combo finishers have a high luck chance to increase Kratos' Strength and Stagger resistance for a duration when triggered.
This armor set is purchasable from Brok and Sindri's shop once the shop is unlocked. This allows you to access it immediately until you can complete the side quest in Svartalfheim to unlock the Nidavellir's set.
