The Samurai or Land of Reeds Armor Set is one of the best early-game armor sets in Elden Ring. It provides decent protection and doesn’t weigh too much.

The cost of the full armor set is 4500 Runes. Here is a breakdown of the cost of all individual items
Land of Reeds Helmet: 1,000 Runes

The Spiritcaller’s Cave in the Mountaintops of the Giants contains the White Reed Armor, White Reed Gauntlets, and White Reed Greaves. They’re discovered on a body in a vast tunnel full of spirit wolves. To access this cave, you’ll need two Stonesword Keys.
