There are plenty of unique armor sets for you to collect in Elden Ring’s Shadow of the Erdtree. Whether you want to amplify your style with a cool bear pelt hat, or up your defenses to prepare for the challenges ahead, you’ll find what you’re looking for in the Shadow Realm.

In this Shadows of the Erdtree guide, we’ll show you all of the armor sets we’ve found in the Shadow Realm so far.


Gravesite Plain armor sets

Gravesite Plain, the opening area of Shadow of the Erdtree, has only a handful of armor pieces scattered around its open world and inside its dungeons. Here’s what we’ve found so far.
