Should you upgrade armor in God of War Ragnarok? Answered!

Armor is a really important piece of equipment in God of War Ragnarok. It improves your stats – usually strength and defense, but sometimes other stats as well – and many pieces of armor also give you a kind of perk that gives you momentum or damages your enemies. You might prefer the look of Kratos’ shirtless Spartan warrior, but strategically covering his muscular frame with some armor is a very good idea.

Is it worth upgrading armor in God of War Ragnarok?

Every time you visit a shop in God of War Ragnarok, you get the chance to buy and upgrade different items, including armor. Most upgrades cost a combination of Hacksilver and a certain resource, and the higher the upgrade level, the higher the Hacksilver cost, and the rarer the resources required. You obviously want to upgrade your weapons because this is a God of War game, so you will use it Much. But do you also want to upgrade your armor? Isn’t attacking the best form of defense in Kratos’ book?

In general, yes, you should upgrade your armor in God of War Ragnarok. Almost all armor upgrades increase your strength, so even if you’re a highly skilled player and have never been hit, you’ll still benefit from a better armor. Many pieces of armor also have perks that don’t unlock until the shield has been upgraded at least once, and these perks get stronger the more you upgrade the shield.

Remember, however, that you can only wear one piece of cheat armor, one piece of wrist armor, and one piece of waist armor at a time, so don’t go to upgrade every piece of armor in your inventory just because you can. Pick the group you want, and focus on upgrading that group. And if you find a really good new set, but maybe not as good as the old one that was upgraded, it’s usually best to switch to the new set upgrade.
