The Spartan Armor set is the next armor set, which has a locked-in power level of 1 and no perks or stats. This makes it ideal for players looking to test their skills and make their playthrough more challenging.

It has a unique perk that has a chance to drop a Health Stone on hit. When the Health Stone is stomped, players gain rage alongside a bigger explosion. The set can be purchased for 58,000 Hacksilver.
Zeus Armor Set
The Zeus Armor Set is another set from the 2018 God of War New Game Plus that makes its return. This set is considered a glass-cannon set as it increases Melee and Runic damage.
