Is there a best armor set in AC Valhalla? This guide on The Best Armor In Assassin’s Creed Valhalla breaks down and explains the armor and armor sets system, as it offers a lot of freedom that allows players to build, customize, and upgrade armor to suit their personal play style.
While I don’t personally believe there is a “best” armor set in the game, the hardest to obtain is Thor’s armor. To unlock Thor’s Armor in AC Valhalla is a very lengthy process that is difficult to achieve before the very end of the game. However, although it’s the rarest set, it doesn’t make it the strongest set. There is a lot of choice available.
The Best Armor In Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
Firstly, before selecting the best armor for your Eivor, you need to examine which clan it belongs to. At the top of every detail window, when highlighting armor in your inventory, is a small icon that tells you which clan it belongs to. There is Bear, Raven, and Wolf. This is important because there are a lot of nodes in the Skills tree that boosts that specific set of armor. Also, once you reach Power Level 400, you get Mastery Points that can be continuously spent to improve either the Bear, Raven, or Wolf sets of gear.
Wolf specializes in Ranged damage and abilities, Bear is melee based, and the Raven is Stealth based. This isn’t a black or white kind of deal. You can still completely utilize stealth and ranged abilities as a Bear, and they can still be very effective. However, if you’re looking to push the potential of your builds to the very max, you want to make sure you focus on using armor sets and then buffing those sets in the skill trees.
In terms of the best armor set bonuses, that again is very much down to personal preference. But have a browse through our guide (just linked previously) and find one that works best for you.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla really allows you to build and play as you see fit, so don’t worry that you’re using “bad” gear or weapons, use whatever compliments your style of play.
