Assassin's Creed: Odyssey involves upgrading your armor, weapons, and abilities so you can continue to beat bigger and better foes. There are several legendary armor sets found within the game, but some sets might help you better than others. It does depend upon your gameplay, but in this list, we will assume that most people prefer to focus on their warrior damage.

There are those who might argue and say that assassin or hunter damage is more important, but generally, all players will enter into several hand-to-hand fights. Keep reading to learn about the ranking of the best armor sets in Assassin's Creed: Odyssey!
Updated August 8, 2021, by Jacob Buchalter: With even the newest iteration, Assassin's Creed: Valhalla, going on sale every now and again, we thought it was time to take another look back at Odyssey. Even though Valhalla is the newer game, Odyssey is still bigger in comparison, and there is a large portion of the fanbase who still prefer it. And, with all the incredible abilities to use, DLCs to experience, and armors to obtain, who can blame them? So, let's take yet another look back before Assassin's Creed: Infinity becomes a reality, talk about some of the armor sets we might've previously missed, and rank the top-tier choices once again.
Before we really start to get into the weeds here, let’s preface this a bit by saying that the superfans have crunched the numbers, and it’s 100% true that the most bang for your buck in terms of armor is actually finding Epic Gear with the right modifiers & engravings (in particular crit chance, crit damage, and assassination damage).
So, Epic Gear is almost always better than Legendary Gear (with the right bonuses). We're putting it at the bottom of the list to let readers know ASAP, but really this entry counts as #1
Legendary Gear only has two passive bonuses (not including the Armor Set bonus) while Epic Gear has three. So, if you aren’t planning on wearing the full Legendary Set (or haven’t found it all yet), then Epic Gear is obviously better because you’ll get an extra passive bonus per Armor Piece. Still, because Epic Gear Bonuses are randomized while Legendary Gear bonuses are the same every time, it makes a lot more sense to talk about the Legendary over the Epic, so that's what this list will primarily focus on.
This first set is the lowest on our list since, while health regain is nice, only getting 2% of the damage you deal back isn't quite enough.Thankfully, some abilities (mostly Assassination ones) do some absurd damage, when get earn you quite a big chunk of health back…too bad the bonuses for the pieces of this set primarily focus on Warrior Abilities.
This set can be acquired by defeating all of the cultists in the Heroes of the Cult branch, and there are quite a few benefits to using it, especially if it's your only full Legendary set. But, because of the random spread of the bonuses, and the odd set bonus, it only just barely makes it into our rankings.
This next Legendary set is a great choice for players who love tanky builds, and as an added bonus the set also looks fantastic as well. The Greek Heroes set pieces give you extra health, armor, melee resistance, half-damage resistance, and elemental resistance, as well as a 15% warrior ability boost with each acquired piece.
Now, as for how to find it in-game, it doesn't have all too much to do with Greek Heroes at all and is actually acquired by defeating five different mercenaries. The mercenaries you have to defeat are the Translucent, the Frenzied, the Resplendent, the Flash, and the Lucky Drunk, in any order you choose.
There are a lot of armor sets found in the Ubisoft Store for Odyssey that use Helix Credits and are extra shiny, but you absolutely don't need to buy any of these to get through the game. The armors in-game are, quite frankly, a lot better than these ones on average, but if you’re okay spending some real-world cash, then the Dionysos Set is one of the better (and snazzier) options.
First of all, it looks great. but, most importantly, it's a set that lets you clear out entire compounds unseen and untouched. Each piece of this set gives +25 Assassin Damage, adding up to a total of +125% with all 5 pieces, while every other piece (except the headgear) gives a bonus to critical damage as well. And, pair that with the set bonus which gives another +100% to Crit Damage with Assassin abilities specifically, and it'll be difficult for anyone to survive an assassination attempt from one of the franchise's best Assassins.
The intoxication status effect in AC: Odyssey is a bit confusing at first, but it's really just a fancy word for poison. The only thing extra that it does, other than steadily hurting your opponent over time, is that an intoxicated enemy also has lower defense and attack, meaning you’ll hurt them more with the same attacks while also taking less damage from them. You would think that the Dionysos Set would be all about intoxication, considering it's named after the Greek God of festivities and wine, but it’s actually the Master Assassin’s Set from the Legacy of the First Blade DLC that buffs this status effect so drastically.
Many of the bonuses to the individual pieces have a lot in common with the Snake Set below, but, it’s the Armor Set Bonus that really separates the Master Assassin's Set from the rest of the pack. When wearing the full set of armor, the Vanish Assassin’s Ability costs no Adrenaline and will now intoxicate all nearby enemies, lowering their defenses for stealth attacks which are also being buffed by the individual bonuses of each piece as well. It makes clearing out some of the more difficult forts found later on a child's game. There have been a lot of Assassin's throughout the games that have earned the title of Master Assassin, and it's clear that Kassandra deserves it as well. Alexios was great too but it's clear Kassandra is the standout protagonist of the game and also one of the better female protagonists of the generation.
This set is perfect for anyone who prefers poison to fire, as it increases your intoxicated damage by 10%, the hood (and boots) add 10 seconds to the intoxicating effect, and the gloves increase the rate of elemental buildup by 50%. This set is also geared toward assassins as each piece adds 15% damage in this area.

And, the Snake Set is straight-up overpowered when paired with the Fanged Bow, which turns all normal bows into poisonous ones, as it allows you to intoxicate any enemy coming your way before they even get close. To acquire the Snake Set, much like the Achilles armor, you only need to defeat all of the members of the Eyes of Kosmos branch of the Cult.
The Athenian War Hero set is the perfect choice for anyone who loves the Hunter abilities in AC: Odyssey, as well as for someone who is tired of trying to hit enemies with arrows who use shields. Why? Well because, with this armor, your arrows become shield-piercing! Not only that, but this set also provides the wearer with extra headshot damage, increased bow charging speed, and a ton of bonus Hunter damage. The entire set can be obtained by defeating every member of the Delian League branch in the Cult of Kosmos. Bows and Hunter abilities have always been crazy strong in the more recent AC games, and even Valhalla is no different.
Once again, another Legendary Set that requires Alexios/Kassandra to take out every single branch member in the Cult of Kosmos. This time around, it's the Gods of the Aegean Sea branch, most of which are naval experts that you'll fight on their own ships. After beating them all, you'll get the Pirate Set, and this is one that all pure Assassin-damage players should at least try out.
Every piece of the armor buffs either crit chance at full health, crit damage, or gives extra Adrenaline on an Assassination Kill. And, while the set bonus might seem boring compared to some of the others on this list, giving you an extra +15% damage to Assassin Abilities on top of all the other Assassin-damage buffs means you'll be doubling or even tripling your damage output.
That said, if you're gunning for this armor set, it's highly recommended you upgrade your ship before going on a hunt for these pieces as the Gods of the Aegean Sea have some very strong ships.
The final reward for slaying all the Legendary Beasts in the Daughters of Artemis quest (one of the game's best side-quests), is the Artemis set. Now, like the Athenian War Hero set, this Legendary garb is meant for builds specializing in Hunter damage. It only makes sense, given that Artemis is the Goddess of the Hunt and is always depicted with a bow. Frankly, if the shield-piercing set bonus of the Athenian War Hero set didn't sound all too enticing, then the Artemis side is likely much more up your alley. A lot of the individual bonuses are the same, but the overall set bonus gives an additional +50% damage to all Hunter Abilities, which is huge.
Plus, while the Athenian War Hero set is all fancy and trimmed with gold, this actually looks like something an Assassin trying to blend in would wear, and the body paint is a great aesthetic bonus as well.
The Immortal set is aptly named, since the set bonus quite literally makes you appear immortal by reviving you on death. Basically, think of it like a Bottled Fairy from the Legend of Zelda games, where it revives you when you die with full health (though you just need to wait a minute for the cooldown to refresh, rather than catching an entirely new Fairy). This set is a huge help for players who keep finding themselves almost clearing an entire Fort in one go, but who end up getting discovered near the end and dying. Like with so many other armor sets, to get it, you just need to kill every member of the Worshippers of the Bloodline branch of the Kosmos Cult.
Individually, all the pieces of the armor set buff your Warrior Damage, and different pieces also buff your crit chance at low health, overall crit damage, and Adrenaline gain on critical hits. Frankly, it's just one of the better sets for Warrior builds and makes the harder areas of the game a lot more forgiving.
The Agamemnon set is one of the most garish armor sets in the game. To get this, you just need to collect the pieces from the Silver Vein Cult of Kosmos branch. While the Master Assassin's and Snake Set were all about poison/intoxication damage, the Agamemnon set is entirely focused on the fire element. Fire damage is honestly pretty overpowered in AC: Odyssey and this set only makes the imbalance more clear. All the armor pieces buff your Warrior Damage, but it's the extra bonuses to Elemental Buildup, fire damage, or burning duration that really caught our eye.
And, if you pair that with the laughably broken set bonus of +50% burning rate (that means the burning damage triggers 50% faster), this set makes a lot of the early to mid-game laughable easy. It's only when enemies start to pop up with fire immunity that you may run into some issues, but even then that only happens every now and again.
The Arena fights in Pephka are a lot of fun and reminded us of the Colisseum fights in AC: Origins (the Egyptian-themed gem of a game that it was). After beating them all, you get this armor set. Now, It's a good idea to level yourself up to level 50 or to get started in the Arena because a lot of your opponents will be incredibly powerful.

Once you earn the set, you'll discover that its unique engraving allows you to get +50% of your damage dealt with Overpower abilities back as heath, which is pretty great. That said, the individual bonuses are a bit too spread out between weapon types, with some buffing swords/daggers, heavy weapons, or staffs and spears. That said, if you tend to switch between a lot of different weapon types, this set might be perfect for you.
Sort of odd that Ubisoft has you literally hunt the Nemean Lion in the game, yet this armor made from its pelt is exclusive to the Helix Store. That said, outside of Epic Gear, it is one of the better Warrior sets, thanks to its huge bonuses to crit chance, crit damage, and overall health.
To get the most out of this armor, you will need to keep yourself at full health during the battles as that is when you will reap the most rewards from your fights. To be more specific, many of the armor pieces give extra crit damage/crit chance while at full health, and the set bonus, in particular, gives a flat +5% to crit chance and +25% to crit damage when topped up on HP.
There are a few Armor Sets in AC: Odyssey that are a bit over-the-top in terms of their aesthetics. The Abstergo Elite set, for example, sticks out like a sore thumb compared to all the other gear in the game (which was likely intentional), but the Celestial Suit set still takes the cake. We get that the recent AC games have leaned more towards fantasy than history, and this armor looks cool, but it's also immersion-shattering. Visuals aside, the Celestial Set is statistically pretty amazing too, though still absolutely not worth the Helix Credit investment. It’s another set that gives bonuses to Assassin Damage as well as extra Adrenaline on crits and Assassination Kills.
But, the best part about it by far is that every Assassin ability gives you 50% of an Adrenaline bar, This means that if you use 1 bar to Vanish, it gives half the bar back immediately (basically meaning half the Adrenaline cost). That might not sound great on paper, but if you take the passive adrenaline regen outside of combat into consideration, it means all your Assassin abilities that don’t immediately trigger combat are basically free to cast!
This is the final set acquired by defeating Cult of Kosmos members, as beating Deimos will give you four of the five pieces, and the last segment can be acquired from Aspasia in the “A Fresh Start” quest. Now, this armor set is also sort of unique in that all the individual pieces share the exact same bonuses of +25% to Warrior Damage and +10 to all damage in general, making it another top contender for the best set for Warrior builds.
That said, while its set bonus of +10% damage with all abilities might seem good, it sort of prioritizes quantity over quality. Other set bonuses that buff specific types of abilities usually buff their damage by 20-50%, but this is only a 10% increase. Because of that, this is as far as this armor goes, but it's still one of the most recognizable and interesting armor sets in the game.
The Pilgrim Set is one of the trickier sets of armor to find in the game because you have to travel a long distance to get all the pieces. You will need to investigate legendary chests in places like the Akropolis of Argos in Argo, the Sanctuary of Eleusis in Attika, the Temple of Britomartis at Messara, the Temple of Artemis Orthia in Lakonia, and the Temple of the Golden Bowed Goddess in Malis. Think about it, this is called the Pilgrim set after all, so of course, you need to journey all over and travel to many sacred places in order to unlock it.
It's an extremely helpful set to have if you enjoy sneaky assassinations as you'll gain extra Adrenaline per hit, Adrenaline from Assassination Kills, extra damage with daggers, and even extra movement speed while crouching. That last bonus might sound odd, but considering the set bonus is that the Shadow of Nyx ability costs 100% less Adrenaline to use (meaning it's free), it makes sense that you'd also want to move around quicker while crouched and invisible too.
The Pegasos Armor Set is incredibly cool and aesthetically pleasing, but to get it you'll need to spend money in the Helix store. It cost 1,500 Helix credits. When you equip this silver masterpiece, it will give you a substantial Adrenaline boost whenever you dodge an attack as the set bonus. Like the Pegasos that's known for its speed (and flight), this armor set incentivizes you to prioritize dodging and poking at enemies rather than tanking hits and using big windup attacks on them.
Plus, when you buy it, it includes the Pegasos skin for Phobos and the Legendary sword Chrysaor as well.
You will need to get this armor set during the Torment of Hades episode of The Fate of Atlantis DLC, and it's one of the only sets in the game that has canonical ties back to the Isu. You'll be able to get the first four pieces of the set while fighting various enemies throughout the main quests of the DLC, such as the Poisoner, Swordfish, Epiktetos, and Deianeira.
But for the final piece, you'll need to visit a certain someone at Hades' Palace to complete a quest, follow the games' guidelines to complete the armor so that you can access the Gates of Hades and continue your journey into the Underworld. Because this armor is basically required for the mainline quest of the DLC, it makes it this high. Well, that and the fact that it's by far the coolest looking set in the game.
The Spartan War Hero Set is the ultimate armor for warrior damage. This set adds an extra 15% damage to your warrior abilities, and the individual pieces themselves seek to boost your critical damage and damage on Athenian soldiers.
You can acquire the entire set by ridding the Greek world of the entire Peloponnesian League sector of the cult. When you have this entire set equipped you will be amazed by how easy it is to rip through hordes of soldiers as you continue on to the end of your odyssey.
