Best Armor Sets In Wild Hearts (Young Samurai, Basara & More)

Here is a guide on the best Armor Sets in Wild Hearts.

If you have just started playing Wild Hearts, you might be looking for the best armor sets to use against the deadly monsters. The action RPG puts you face to face with the big, bad and ugly monsters in Azuma – a fantasy world inspired by medieval Japan. The best thing about the game is that it lets you use different pieces of armor from your collection to make your very own customized armor set. However, this can be done during mid-game when you have a lot of options to choose from. This guide will show you how to get the best armor sets in the early game.

Best Armor Sets to Use in Wild Hearts (Early-Game)

So, which set of armor should you choose and which path should you take in Wild Hearts? The Human Path will give you extra defense points while the Kemono Path will give you extra Kemono points along with defense points. Here is a list of all the sets that you can use:

Young Samurai Set

The Young Samurai set is one of the best early-game armor sets. It has pretty decent defense bonuses along with the health boost perk on the chest and waist. Another useful perk that it comes equipped with is increasing the number of Karakuri thread extracted in one go. Mentioned below are the stats of the Young Samurai Armor set:

  • Wood: 5
  • Defense: 8
  • Fire: -4
  • Water: 0
  • Wind: 5
  • Earth: -2
  • Affinity: 0
  • Health Boost: +3

Roaming Bard Set

This set has higher basic defense and also provides your character with decent elemental resistance. The Roaming Bard set is one of the best early-game armor that you can use in the game. The armor set also has some innate abilities like Recovery Boost, Savage, and Presence of Mind. These are the stats of the Roaming Bard Armor set:

  • Defense: 83
  • Affinity: 30
  • Wood: 4
  • Fire: -4
  • Water: 3

Basara Armor Set

Lastly, we have the Basara Armor set. If you’re talking about the best armor sets in Wild Hearts, then this is the one you should go for. This armor can stand its ground not only during early game but also when you progress through most of Azuma. With extremely high defense and affinity stats coupled with decent elementals, the Basara armor set is quite rightly overpowered. Here are the stats of the armor set:

  • Defense: 58
  • Affinity: +240 (Human Path)
  • Wood: +35
