God of War is departure from previous entries in the series, switching to Norse mythology and taking a more open-world approach than it’s predecessors. Keeping in line with many open-world Role-Playing-Games, and the Norse mythos, armor is an important mechanic in God of War—Kratos’ armor is crafted by dwarves and it’s the main source of increasing his stats during the game.

There are a pretty heft number of armor options for players to choose from in God of War, and each one gives Kratos a pretty unique aesthetic in addition to offering protection. But the armor that provides the most utility, along with the best improvement to stats, is the Mist armor found in Niflheim. Here’s a breakdown of the different types of Mist armor, the best armor in God of War.

Mist Armor

Players can craft Mist armor after gaining access to Ivaldi’s Workshop in Niflheim. While exploring inside Ivaldi’s Workshop, players will accumulate a crafting ingredient called Mist Echoes by defeating enemies and opening chests. These Mist Echoes are used as the main ingredient in crafting and upgrading Mist armor, among other things, so players should attempt to collect as many as they can on each journey into the workshop.

As with most armor, all of the Mist armor sets includes three pieces that can be crafted. Each piece starts at Level Seven and can be upgraded three times, making it the strongest armor to currently exist in God War. The stats of the Mist armor that can be crafted are as follows:
