You probably amassed lots of different armor sets over the course of your adventures in the newly shaped lands of Hyrule. Since each armor set takes quite a bit of investment to upgrade, we found ourselves wondering which ones gave us the most bang for our buck. Here is the best late game armor set in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.

The best late game armor to use in Tears of the Kingdom

The best late game armor in the entirety of Tears of the Kingdom has to be the Wild set, returning from Breath of the Wild. You can find all three pieces of the set in the Depths.

Not only does the Wild set look pretty nice, but it also maxes out at a whopping 84 defense when all three pieces are fully upgraded to four stars. With that much defense, most attacks will only do a quarter’s heart worth of damage to you. On top of that, the Wild armor set bonus is Attack Up, which helps you beat up baddies quicker.

The caveat to the Wild set is that you need lots of Dragon parts to fully upgrade each piece. In fact, you require lots of horn shards and spike shards from all three Dragons, which can be a little annoying to farm.

Of course, this is merely one option for duds. There are tons of armor options in Tears of the Kingdom, and they are pretty much all viable once you fully upgrade them. Some other sets that are great to use include:

  • Barbarian set (60 defense, Charge attack stamina cost reduced set bonus)
  • Awakening set (60 defense, Attack Up set bonus)
  • Fierce Diety set (60 defense, Charge attack stamina cost reduced set bonus)
  • Ancient Hero’s Aspect (84 defense, but you need to do the gargantuan task of completing all 152 Shrines in the game)
