|Armor & Cape Combination|
|Padded Helmet||Padded Cuirass|
|Padded Greaves||Wolf Fur Cape|
The Padded Armor Set takes the top spot as the best armor combination currently in Valheim due to its ability reach 96 defense rating with all three pieces upgraded to level four. When paired with the Wolf Cape, this particular armor combination allows you to explore all nine biomes currently in the game with relative ease!
The Wolf Fur Cape, in particular, offers enough Frost Resistance to completely negate the Freezing Debuff everpresent in Mountain biomes. It also boasts 1600 durability at level four, only 50 points short of the Linen Cloth's max durability of 1650.
These factors make the Wolf Fur Cape the current best cape in Valheim in terms of overall benefits and is a perfect fit for the Padded Armor Set.
