How to upgrade Armor
The best Armor in AC Valhalla really depends upon what playstyle you are going with. The armor set that you choose can then be upgraded to a really high level.
Armor sets require high level crafting resources which include nickel, tungsten and carbide ingots as well as leather and iron ore.
Once you have the required resources to upgrade an armor piece, you can buff up the stats of each piece individually which also provides an extra stat boost slot for new runes.
