Location: Complete the side tale ‘Fit for a Khan’ during Act 3.

Armor Perks:

  • Increase to health

  • Disguises you while out of combat, massively reducing Mongol detection speed

This armor set is great for ambushing Mongol Patrols, as it disguises you as one of them when you are not in combat. But it lacks the other stealthy perks present in other attires. So, it will only be useful when you are in Mongol Territory.

Fundoshi

Location: Reward for finding all the Hot Spring Locations.  

Armor Perks:  Running and sprinting no longer create noise.

The fundoshi armor outfit is not such a special outfit. It doesn’t provide any special stats boosts and only has 1 perk. However, that perk is very useful in certain situations.

While you have equipped this armor, you can usually run past Mongol patrols and dash through stealthy areas without being detected, as long as you keep out of sight.
