How To Get Darkdale Armor In God Of War Ragnarok

The Darkdale Armor Set is part of the pre-order items for GoW Ragnarok. This guide on How To Get Darkdale Armor In God Of War Ragnarok will tell you how you can unlock this armor if you pre-ordered the game or purchased one of the special Editions on either PlayStation 5 or PlayStation 4.

It’s important to note that the Darkdale armor set is only available if you pre-ordered the Digital Deluxe Edition of God of War Ragnarok, or the physical equivalent. It consists of the Darkdale Plackart, the Darkdale Arm Guards, and the Darkdale Waist Guard, enough to full gear Kratos with a decent armor set right at the start. It’s a decent set of armor and upgrades well but is very easily replaced in a few hours so if you didn’t get the pre-order versions that come with the goodies, it’s not a huge loss.

How To Get Darkdale Armor In God Of War Ragnarok

To unlock the Darkdale Armor Set you simply need to follow the main story. I won’t include any spoilers here but it’s only a short distance into the game, maybe 1-2 hours. Eventually you will meet up with the Dwarves at a special safe location. One of the Dwarves will guide you through the process of upgrading your equipment before telling you that he has found some supplies you miss and put them in a box.

There’s a huge box right next to where the Dwarf is standing, you can’t miss it. Simply loot the box to get all of the DLC items.

  • Follow the main story for about 1-2.5 hours
  • Eventually you will meet both of the Dwarves from the original God of War game at a special location
  • After the introduction to upgrading your gear, loot the huge chest next to you to get your Darkdale Armor Set (it’s near impossible to miss)

It's a pretty strong set, so it's very much worth collecting.
