To progress in God of War Ragnarok, you need to face enemies individually and equip yourself with the best armor for each level. Early on, having a good armor set will make a big difference in the game, especially against Berserker bosses if you choose to go after them.
Best Early Game Armor Sets
The following are some of the best armor sets for early games in God of War Ragnarok:
- Nidavellir Armor
- Lunda Armor
The Nidavellir armor set is one of the best early game sets in God of War Ragnarok. Its defining characteristic is a healing buff that allows you to recover health while stunning enemies. However, to get the set, you need to participate in the “Service of Asgard” favor by destroying all the platforms. This will give you some “Nidavellir Ore”. Take this ore to Huldra Brothers and you will craft the set yourself.
The Lunda Armor set is one of the best early game sets in God of War Ragnarok. His defining characteristic is a poison buff that gives enemies a massive health depletion. To get the armor set, head towards Vaneheim and kill the boss “Nidhogg” to start the crafting process, during which he will get the missing Lunda armor pieces.
Piece #1 (Broken Belt)
Inside the chest in the garden in Noatun, you will find Lunda’s Broken Belt. Now head towards the chamber door and use the chisel to open it and get the chest.
Piece #2 (broken bracers)
Head to the Cliffside Ruins and look for a chest. Inside, you’ll find Lunda’s Broken Bracers. The exact location is at the top of the ruins, which you can reach through spreading rocks.
Piece #3 (Broken Shell)
Head towards the Veiled Passage in Vanaheim and look for a chest. The chest is at the end point of the cave; inside, you will find the broken shell of Lunda.
Note: Once you find all the missing pieces, head back to River Delta and give them to Lunda so she can start crafting the Lunda Armor set.
