Where do you find different armor sets in Assassin's Creed Valhalla? In this Assassin's Creed Valhalla Guide, we're going to list all of the armor sets that we've found throughout the game, complete with screenshots of each complete set and location details.
Assassin's Creed Valhalla Armor Sets
Armor plays a major role in Assassin's Creed Valhalla. Not only does it tend to look cool, it also provides various stat boosts and can significantly bolster your favourite style of play.
Each armor set is made up of five pieces:
These five pieces are usually scattered across the land (most are split across a couple of regions) but it's well worth hunting them all down. That's because if you have all five pieces of an armor set equipped, you unlock additional bonuses depending on the set.
Some sets augment your damage, while others make a stealthy approach even deadlier. Generally speaking, it's best to equip a full armor set, rather than mix and match different pieces.
Combining the right armor with the right skills and abilities can make you a Viking warrior to be feared. For much more information on skills, including our own ratings for each skill that you can unlock, check out our in-depth guide: Assassin's Creed Valhalla: Best Skills.
And, in order to upgrade your armor, you'll need to collect Carbon, Nickel, and Tungsten (Gold) Ingots. For more information on how upgrading works and where to find ingots, take a look at the following guide: Assassin's Creed Valhalla: Where to Find Nickel Ingots, Gold Tungsten Ingots.
Assassin's Creed Valhalla All Armor Sets and Locations
Below, you'll find a list of all the armor sets that we've discovered so far. Alongside the Raven Armor Set, there are seven main armor sets to get your hands on — not including DLC.
Please keep in mind that some of these armor sets may be considered spoilers.
Hidden Ones' Armor Set
The Hidden Ones armor set is designed to enhance a stealthy style of play. It's one of the most difficult armor sets to track down, as the pieces are scattered far and wide, in regions of various power levels.
- Increase Assassination Damage when crouched and undetected for 10 seconds
- Additional increase to Headshot Damage
Hidden Ones' Gloves
Location: Ratae Bureau in Ledecestrescire (Suggested Power 20).
Look for either an underground passage or a hanging net of rubble. For the former, simply follow the tunnels underground. For the latter, shoot the rubble down and descend through the hole into the Bureau.
Hidden Ones' Mask
Location: Londinium Bureau in Lunden (Suggested Power 90).
This one's tricky. First of all, find the large circular structure made of wood outside the walls of Lunden. The Bureau is inside, but you can't climb up and into it. Instead, look up to the sky to see a tree that hangs out from the very top of the city wall. Climb up there and dive off into the wooden structure. Once inside, don't get out of the water. Look for a breakable wooden wall under the water, and follow the tunnel. Finally, shoot the explosive jar through the metal fencing to destroy the rubble, and the chest is yours.
Hidden Ones' Hood
Location: Camulodunum Bureau in Essexe (Suggested Power 160).
Another very tricky chest to reach. For starters, locate the staircase on the Southern outskirts of the city. You'll need to blow up some rubble to get in, so search for nearby oil jars beyond the large tree and next to a small stream. Take one, and climb up the large tree. Throw the jar from the ledge onto the rubble.
Pass into the tunnels and you'll come to a flooded corridor with a barred door at the end of it. Dive underwater, and come up on the other side of the Northern wall. Follow the path and you'll find another barred door. Turn left and climb up the wall. You'll emerge on a ledge that hangs over the flooded corridor. Jump over to the opposite platform using the horizontal pole attached to the ceiling.
You'll find a locked door that requires a key. Dive into the nearby water and collect the key from the bottom. Swim back up and unlock the door. This room is a dead end, but you can shoot one of the barred doors open through the metal fencing. Leave the room and climb back up to the platform that overlooks the flooded corridor. Jump back over to the other side and go through the door that was previously barred.
You'll finally find yourself on the other end of the flooded corridor, and the chest is yours.
Hidden Ones' Robes
Location: Eboracum Bureau in Jorvik (Suggested Power 190).
To find the entrance to this bureau, look for a graveyard in Jorvik's South-East corner. You should find a breakable wooden floor in the centre of the graveyard. Shoot it and dive down into the depths. Follow the tunnel until you come to a large, open room with water and suspended platforms.
Make your way to the right side of the room and follow the path. You'll arrive in the bureau's main room. Climb the bookshelf to the left and collect the key. Use it to open the nearby door to the chest.
Hidden Ones' Leggings
Location: Temple of Ceres Bureau in Glowecestrescire (Suggested Power 220).
Head straight into the temple's main entrance and break the objects to your right to find a hole that you can slide through. You'll find a room of green gas, which will slowly poison you if you stay in it. Stand back and throw a torch into the gas to ignite it, allowing for safe passage. Be warned, though: the gas comes back after a short amount of time.
Do the same in the next larger room, before locating the breakable wooden floor. You'll drop into a partially flooded chamber with yet more gas. Exit the chamber on the other side of the room after burning through the gas, and notice the oil jar on the floor. First, throw your torch to ignite the gas on the staircase. Then go back and collect the jar to blow up the rubble wall that seals the bureau's main room.
The chest is yours, and you've (hopefully) completed the Hidden Ones' armor set.
Huntsman Armor Set
The Huntsman armor set is built to enhance your ranged combat abilities. It's an armor set that can be found early in the game, as its pieces are scattered across low level regions.
- Increase Ranged Damage when hitting enemies further than 20m away
- Additional increase to Speed
Location: Templebrough Fort in Ledecestrescire (Suggested Power 20).
Head to the fort's northernmost building, which sits on an island out in the river. Shoot down the construction rock to reach the chest below.
Location: Tonnastadir in Ledecestrescire (Suggested Power 20).
A heavily guarded door leads down into a hideout under the fort. You'll need a key to open it, which the commander in the fort's longhouse should have. The chest is in the deepest room.
Location: In a cave near Besuncen Tor in Grantebridgescire (Suggested Power 20).
Look behind the waterfall opposite the tower to the Northwest of Besuncen Tor. You'll find a flooded tunnel that you can swim through. You'll emerge in a cave with a chest.
Location: Soham Hideout in Grantebridgescire (Suggested Power 20).
Search the biggest hut in the middle of the camp.
Location: Ravensburg in Grantebridgescire (Suggested Power 20).
Search one of the larger huts inside the fort.

Location: King's Bury in East Anglia (Suggested Power 55).
Find the chest in the monastery's main building.
Location: Buckingham in Oxenefordscire (Suggested Power 90).

Location: Leah Villa Garrison in Oxenefordscire (Suggested Power 90).
The only way to get to the chest is through a rubble wall, which needs to be blown apart with an oil jar. You can find oil jars in the small building behind. To get in there, you'll need to move a wooden shelf on the roof. Hop inside, smash the lock on the inside of the door, grab a jar, and take it to the rubble.
Location: Oxenfeforda in Oxenefordscire (Suggested Power 90).
The chest is in the town's tower to the north. The only way in is through a stain glass window on the side of the building, which you'll need to shoot out. Once you're inside, look up to find a breakable wooden floor. Climb up through it, and then peek through the gap above the shelf and shoot down the chandelier. Once that's down, you can move the wooden shelf and access the chest.
Brigandine Armor Set
The Brigandine armor set is built for close combat. It's found about midway through the game.
- Increase Armor when surrounded by more than 2 enemies
- Additional increase to Melee Damage
Loaction: Quatford in Sciropescire (Suggested Power 130).
The chest is under the town's longhouse. To get inside, look for a rubble-sealed cave entrance near the river shore. Blow up the rubble with the nearby oil cart, and then follow the tunnels inside.
Location: Wenlocan Outpost in Sciropescire (Suggested Power 130).
Check the cave in the back of the camp. Move the boulder aside to find the chest.
Location: Beamasfield in Cent (Suggested Power 130).

Location: Dover Fortress in Cent (Suggested Power 130).
Find the staircase icon near the edge of the fortress and head down into the dock area. You'll find some rubble flooring down there, along with an oil jar that's on the way out to the beach. Blow up the rubble, break the wooden wall, and you'll the chest is yours.
Location: Canterbury Cathedral in Cent (Suggested Power 130).
Look for the locked door on the second floor of the cathedral. Follow the walkway to the opposite side of the hall and shoot the lock through the fencing. Follow the corridor down to the room with the chest. Shoot the chandelier down to break the rubble floor.
Galloglach Armor Set
The Galloglach armor set is meant for brawling at close range. It's found about midway through the game.
- Increases Melee Resistance when hitting enemies with finishers
- Additional increase to Melee Damage
Location: Spalding Bandit Lair in Lincolnscire (Suggested Power 160).
The chest is found in a locked hut near the centre of the camp. The only way to get in is to search underneath the hut for a ladder that leads up inside.
Location: Lincoln in Lincolnscire (Suggested Power 160).
A building near the centre of town houses this chest. It's quite heavily guarded, but there are no locked doors or puzzles to contend with. Once you're inside, the chest is all yours.
Location: Bolingbroc Castle in Lincolnscire (Suggested Power 160).
The chest is inside the building in the castle's second courtyard. It's heavily guarded.
Location: Brentwood Outpost in Essexe (Suggested Power 160).
The chest is heavily guarded and requires a nearby key to access.
Location: Halstead Outpost in Essexe (Suggested Power 160).
There are two ways to this chest. Either blow the rubble wall open with a nearby oil jar, or climb above the room that it's in and look for a metal grate on the floor. You can shoot the door's lock through the grate.
Mentor's Armor Set
The Mentor's armor set is built for speed and aggression. It's found in several of the game's later regions, some of which are very high level.
- Increases Attack after Critical Hits
- Additional Increase to Speed
Location: Guildford in Susthexe (Suggested Power 160).
Found in the town's church. Climb towards the top of the tower and shoot down the construction material so that you can head inside. From there, shoot out the wooden floor, break the lock on the door, and then move the wooden shelf to find the chest.
Location: Anderitum Hideout in Susthexe (Suggested Power 160).
First, you'll need the key to the underground tunnels from a nearby elite enemy. Once you're down there, you'll find a rubble wall in the direction of the chest. There's an oil jar in the room that you just came from — use that to blow the rubble apart. From there, simply follow the tunnel.
Location: Sherwood Hideout in Snotinghamscire (Suggested Power 250).
The chest is located in the hideout's only hut.
Location: Loch Clunbre Hideout in Snotinghamscire (Suggested Power 250).
The chest can be found in one of the camp's central huts. A nearby elite enemy will have the key needed to unlock it.
Location: Wincestre Garrison in Wincestre (Suggested Power 250).
This is a heavily guarded location, but you'll need to find time to angle an arrow shot through a window opposite the barred door in order to get inside the room with the chest.
Thegn's Armor Set
The Thegn's armor set is built for big damage through critical hits. It's found in the later parts of the game, in very high level areas.
- Increase Critical Chance when parrying
- Additional Increase to Critical Damage
Location: Stenwege Camp in Eurvicscire (Suggested Power 190).
In order to claim this chest, you'll need to fight (or assassinate) your way through a large bandit camp. Tough elite level enemies have the keys you'll need to progress. In the last part of the camp, you'll find the chest nestled inside of a hut.
Thegn's Heavy Tunic
Location: Temple of Brigantia in Eurvicscire (Suggested Power 190).
There's a diving spot to the Southeast of these ruins, to the Northern side of the small island. In this spot, you should find the entrance to a long underwater tunnel. The chest is about halfway through, but you'll need to be quick in order to continue following the tunnel back to the surface without drowning.
Location: Aelfwood in Glowecestrescire (Suggested Power 220).
This is a twisting and turning location, but once you find an enemy who has a key, you should be right near the chest. Open the locked door that's close by and it's yours.
Thegn's Great Helm
Location: The Old Minster in Wincestre (Suggested Power 250).
The chest can found in a secluded room only accessible by shooting out the stain glass window at the front of it. You'll then need to track down three keys in order to open it. Fortunately, they're all located in the same church, and they're easy to get to once you've highlighted them using Odin's Vision. The only one that you may not pick up on is hidden in near the top of the building's tallest tower, right underneath the synchronisation point. Break the boxes in front of iron fencing and you'll be able to slip through to the key. Once you have all three, head back to the chest.
Location: Bishop's Residence in Wincestre (Suggested Power 250).
Enter the residence from the ground floor, and then climb to upstairs using the metal fencing in the centre of the main hall. Once you're up there, find the breakable wooden wall and smash through. Then, move the shelf to the side so that you can shoot the lock off the barred door through the gap. Head to that same door, open it, and you'll find the chest.
Thor's Armor Set
Thor's armor set is built for aggression, battering your enemies with stun damage. You won't be able to complete the full armor set until the end of the game.
- Increase Speed when stunning an enemy
- Additional increase to Stun
Location: The witch's lair South of Britannia's Watch in East Anglia (Suggested Power for fighting the witch: 250).
Defeat this witch to claim her dagger (a quest item) and Thor's Gauntlets.
Location: The witch's lair North of Isle of Ely Monastery in Grantebridgescire (Suggested Power for fighting the witch: 250).
Defeat this witch to claim her dagger (a quest item) and Thor's Breeches.
Thor's Battle Plate
Location: The witch's lair West of the Forward Camp in East Anglia (Suggested Power for fighting the witch: 250).
Defeat this witch to claim her dagger (a quest item) and Thor's Battle Plate.
Location: The tomb South of the Yare River and East of King's Bury in East Anglia (Suggested Power 20).
You can locate this treasure chest long before actually being able to reach it. It's deep within an underground tomb, and you'll need all three witch daggers to get down there. Once you have them, look for the staircase icon nearby (it's North of the armor marker). Go down into the tunnels and follow them until you come to a large, earthen statue.
With all three daggers in your possession, you can slot them into the statue to reveal a room even deeper underground. Here you'll find the chest that contains Thor's Helmet.
Location: Thor's Cape is given to you as a quest reward (Suggested Power 350).
Thor's Cape is the most time consuming piece of armor in the entire game. To acquire it, you have to find and kill every member of The Order of the Ancients — all 45 of them. You can't complete this task until the end of the main story.
Once every single one of them is dead, return to The Hidden Ones' Bureau in your settlement and turn in all of the medallions. Only when every medallion has been delivered will you be rewarded with Thor's Cape, completing Thor's armor set.
