Moving on with Elden Ring Best Light Armor Sets, the main feature of the Raya Lucarian Sorcerer set is its blue and red robe that provides a moderate defense mechanism against the enemy.

Alternative Armors

While compiling my top 15 list for Light Armor Sets in Elden Ring, I came across several other viable options worth considering. However, due to various individual factors, I opted not to include them:

  • Black Knife Set: A good choice with stealth-enhancing properties, but acquiring this armor set takes some time.
  • Omenkiller Set: Although it possesses a moderate physical and magical defense, its robustness is low.
  • Noble’s Set: It offers reasonable magical defense but lacks significant physical protection compared to the other armor sets I mentioned above.
  • Nox Monk Set: Despite being resistant to magic and dark damage, it has low poise and is vulnerable to lightning and fire damage.

My Experience Using Light Armor Sets

While I didn’t use light armor as frequently as heavy armor during the hours I’ve played Elden Ring, some of my personal favorite armor is the Champion Set and the Lusat Set. Since my very first playthrough of Elden Ring was with the strength build, the Champion Set was the ideal armor for me as it only weighed a little, allowing me to equip heavier weapons until I had enough endurance to equip heavy armor as well.

My Elden Ring playtime on Steam (Steam ID: Future_Bird)

But the Lusat armor set easily takes the crown for being one of the most fashionable and eye-popping sets in  Elden Ring, to the point where it became my priority to obtain the Lusat Armor set as soon as possible during the intelligence build playthrough.

I hope you like this list of Elden Ring’s best light armor sets. If you like this guide, give me your feedback in the comments section below.
