In God of War (2018), the "best" armor set can vary depending on your playstyle, your progress in the game, and the difficulty you're playing on. Armor sets in the game offer different benefits and cater to different strategic approaches, such as favoring strength, defense, runic, or a balance of stats. However, as of my knowledge cutoff in early 2023, one of the most highly regarded armor sets in the game is the Ivaldi's Mist Armor set, particularly useful due to its stats and the unique effect it has on Kratos' resistance to the Cursed Mist in Niflheim. Here's more detail on this set and a couple of others considered to be top-tier: 1. **Ivaldi's Mist Armor Set**: Found in Niflheim, this set consists of the Cuirass, Gauntlets, and Waist Guard of Ivaldiā€™s Mist. This armor offers high stats and improves resistance to the Cursed Mist of Niflheim, which is extremely useful while exploring the maze-like Workshop. Furthermore, it also has a health regeneration effect, which can be a lifesaver in combat. 2. **Muspelheim Armor Sets**: There are two main sets to consider from Muspelheim - the Smoldering Brimstone set and the Fallen Ash set. These sets are earned through Muspelheim Trials and can be upgraded with resources also found through these trials. Each set has different stats and benefits, so you may choose based on whether you prefer strength or defense. - **Smoldering Brimstone Set**: Favors strength and cooldown stats, suitable for players who rely more on Kratos' physical attacks and like to use runic attacks and summons more frequently. - **Fallen Ash Set**: Provides a balance between strength and defense and has a chance to inflict concussive burn damage to nearby enemies when damage is taken. 3. **Valkyrie Armor Set**: Defeating the Valkyries is one of the most challenging tasks in the game, and being rewarded with parts of the Valkyrie Set is a testament to that. This set is well-balanced with strong stats that enhance runic, strength, and cooldown attributes. When fully upgraded, it's one of the most well-rounded and powerful armor sets available and can be favored in almost any combat situation. 4. **Traveler Armor Set**: This is a special mention for its unique gimmick. The set provides a significant boost to defense as well as a unique perk that gives Kratos a protective barrier, blocking a single attack after not taking damage for a short time. Armor can be enhanced even further by equipping various enchantments that boost Kratos' stats or provide special abilities, so it's also essential to consider which enchantments to pair with your chosen armor set. Ultimately, the best set for you might depend on the challenges you're facing and the way you like to play the game. It's recommended to experiment with different sets and to make upgrades as you progress to match your preferred playstyle.
