So here’s the best armor you can craft/ find in God of War during your playthrough, obviously, ranked in order.

God of War PC Best Armor Sets :

The Traveler Set

The Traveler Set might not be as attractive stats-wise but it provides a great buff to the player- The Protection of the Traveler perk. Using this armor set allows the player to tank one hit without taking any damage. This comes in handy countless times throughout the different duels you’ll be engaging during the game’s journey. Hence this set has earned its spot in the list

You can craft the Traveler armor set using Hacksilver and materials acquired by defeating the Travelers. So be sure to keep defeating them whenever you see one, if you’re interested in crafting and upgrading the Traveler Set.

  • Gauntlets of the Traveler: 18 Traveler’s Grizzly Trophy, 5 Traveler’s Armor Shard, 12,800 Hacksilver

Sindri’s Royal Dwarven Set

The Sindri’s Royal Dwarven Set provides huge bonuses to Runic abilities and reduces their charge cooldown period, along with having a high defense stat. The chest plate of this set can block all damage when you’re performing Runic attacks, which is always neat. If you depend heavily on using Runic attacks, this armor is perfect for you.

Brok’s Royal Dwarven Set

The most important aspect of Brok’s armor is that each piece of the set increases the rate at which Kratos’ rage meter fills by 10%, allowing for less cooldown periods between Spartan Rage uses. It also has a high defense stat, so if you’re not into Runic attacks that much, this set is for you.
