All 13 Assassin's Creed Valhalla armor sets and their traits, explained

Which will you choose?

Assassin's Creed Valhalla takes a more focused approach to armor compared to Ubisoft's previously released Assassin's Creed Odyssey. There are fewer pieces of gear to sift through but the pieces you do find come with unique stats and set bonuses that can make for some major boons depending on your playstyle

There are three major archetypes of armor in Valhalla, each of which complement one of the three major branches in the game's skill tree. So depending on what sorts of abilities you emphasize when leveling up, you can select an armor set that enhances those traits even further — or pick the opposite to achieve something closer to balance.

  • Way of the Raven armor focuses on stealth bonuses.
  • Way of the Wolf armor boosts archery skills.
  • Way of the Bear amor enhances melee combat abilities.

Multiple sets of armor fall under each of these categories that players need to find during their adventures through Valhalla's enormous open-world. Once you've acquired either two or all five pieces of each set that are scattered throughout England, Eivor will gain an extra set of perks that will further buff their stats.

Here are what each gear set will unlock if you manage to snag all of the items for each.
