Boasting some of the best baseline and upgraded stats there is for cloaks in the game, the Mentor's Cloak is the best that you can find. Though the difference in stats between this cloak and the Thegn's Cloak is minimal, the Mentor's Cloak wins out due to its higher overall upgrade stats to go along with being lightweight, allowing for character builds centered around lightness with good defense.

Despite beginning with low baseline stats, the Hidden Ones' Hood does grow to become one of the best cloaks in the game, second only to the Mentor's Cloak. Boasting a light weight with high defenses all around once upgraded, this is a must get cloak that lets players live up to the name "Assassin."

For those favoring heavier builds that priotizes being able to take punishment dished out by enemies over dodging and sticking to stealth, Thegn's Heavy Tunic is the best armor available to them. With high base stats – albeit with a heavier weight tradeoff – and significantly good upgraded stats, this armor is the best for those who wish to hack and slash their way through the game.

Being an almost polar opposite to Thegn's Heavy Tunic, the Hidden Ones' Robes are best used by those who prefer a more stealthy approach to the game. Despite having good stats perfect for sneaking – due to its low weight – these robes still provide good upgraded stats for people who, from time to time, get into unavoidable fisticuffs against enemies.

A great mask to wear, both for aesthetic and practical purposes. It has high enough stats to aid in providing you with some defense while also not dragging you down too much in weight, letting it be a good alternative for stealth first players who wish for more defense when compared to the Hidden Ones' Mask.

Trading being able to evade easily with high protection, Brigandine Helm is a great complementary piece for straight up fighters in AC Valhalla. It's baseline stats may be a little low compared to other peices, but once fully upgraded, it is more than perfect for those who wish for more action.

Bracers

Despite its lackluster stats, the Raven Clan Bracers' upgraded stats can more than adequately match up well to the kind of damage you can expect from higher levelled enemies as you near the endgame in AC Valhalla. Upgrading these bracers to its maximum potential is also quite cheap and easy on the resources, adding another factor as to why it's one of the best apart from the fact that it allows you to be flexible in your playstyle.

A heavier set of bracers, again from the Thegn's Armor Set. Despite its weight, its still a viable option to use if you're ditching weight on other pieces of your armor, just to add several defense points on your side for whenever you need to hit enemies head on. Its Runic Slots and upgraded stats are also higher than what you can get from lighter bracers, and ideally placing some of your defense stats on bracers while leaving your armor piece lightweight is a good way to find a mix between playstyles.

Pants

The beauty of the Hidden Ones' Leggings isn't really in its stats, but in how light it is overall and how many Runic Slots you can equip to it in its baseline state. It is a serviceable piece early on when you get it, but does lose some of its uniqueness the closer you get to the endgame and you encounter more higher levelled enemies.

Magister's Trousers

With similar baseline stats to the Hidden Ones' Leggings, the Magister's Trousers is more geared towards players, who again, wish to have a rougher playstyle going into engagements with enemies. Its maximum number of Runic Slots will also let you mix and match Runes to aid you in pushing through conflicts with power and ease.
