God of War: How to get the best armor in the game?

Throughout your God of War adventure, your armor will be essential to keep you alive, especially at the end of the game and during greater difficulties. So there’s always a need to find the perfect armor, so don’t worry. We’ll explain it to you step by step.

Finding the Best God of War Armor

You can find armor in different ways, whether in chests, defeating opponents, or even buying from Brok. However, not all armor is the same, and not all have the same potential. To assemble the best armor, you must understand the differences and the path you will take.

Armor in God of War is divided into four categories:

  • Breastplate Armor
  • Wrist Armor
  • Waist Armor
  • Atreus Armor

Therefore, Kratos can equip up to three armor pieces, and Atreus will equip one.

Also, as we said at the beginning, there are different types of armor quality:

  • Common (Green)
  • Rare (blue)
  • Legendary (Purple)
  • Epic (Gold)

How do armors’ attributes work?

Each armor will impact Kratos. Differently, there are armors to make you stronger and with more damage. Others will leave you with more health or defense.

So you will have to understand which of these attributes is best for your way of playing:

  • Strength: Increases the damage of all your basic attacks.
  • Runic: Increases both Runic attack and elemental damage
  • Defense: Reduces all damage taken.
  • Vitality: Increases maximum health and decreases the severity of enemy attacks.
  • Luck: Increases perk activation chance, XP gain, and Hacksilver.
  • Cooldown: Decreases cooldowns for Rune Attacks, Rune Summons, and Talismans.

Other than that, Atreus’ armor has no stats. Still, his armor can grant passive abilities, which activate during a battle. For example, the Legendary Sharpshooter Garb gives Atreus extra damage to enemies in the air.

How armors’ upgrades work

Unfortunately, levels aren’t just for Kratos. They also exist in armor. So if you find a rare armor and want to use it, soon it will stop being interesting because you will continue to evolve.

However, there is a way to reverse this situation. If you go to the store in Brok or Sindri, you can upgrade your armor, increasing your general level and attributes. First, however, you will need to invest an amount of Hacksilver and possibly even other coins such as Svartalheim Steel, World Serpent Scales, or Dust of Realms.

Also, each armor has a maximum number of times it can be upgraded in God of War. This is indicated by the white orbs next to the level indicator.

What is the best armor in God of War?

Throughout God of War, you will find several legendary armors. However, there is one that stands out from the rest. The best armor in God of War is the Mist Armor.

The main differentiator of Mist Armor is that each piece of armor will increase your health regeneration, which will make your entire game extremely simple.

However, the best armor in the game is not easy to acquire, and you will need to venture through the realms to find each piece.

How to get Mist Armor?

For you to assemble the Mist Armor, you will have to follow the steps listed below:

  • Collect the four pieces of the Niflheim Cipher
  • Travel to Niflheim
  • Battle until you acquire 500 Mist Echoes and then gain access to the Workshop
  • Collect the 9 pieces of Ivaldi Armor
  • Collect resources to turn Ivaldi Armor into Mist Armor

All types of Mist Armor

Now that understanding which attributes are best for you comes into play, as Mist Armor has more than one version, you will be able to choose between three formats:

  • The Deadly Mist Armor: Gives all your stats a nice boost
  • The Endless Mist Armor: Gives a high increase in Strength, Vitality, and Defense but does not increase Runic.
  • The Cursed Mist Armor: Gives a significant boost in Strength, Defense, and Runic but does not increase Vitality.

I urge you to understand which one is best for your game format, as building more than one Mist Armor format will be extremely expensive.

Resources needed to maximize Mist Armor

Once you acquire Mist Armor, it will be at level 7. However, you can improve its attributes and level. See below how much it will cost you to upgrade each piece of armor:
