With each complete armor set having 3 pieces, with the chest armor, wrist as well as waist armor, the Giptumadr’s Set is not unique to it. The set itself offers players a solid amount of strength, as well as luck distribution. 

As its description tells the player, “an armor so beautiful that whoever wears it becomes instantly more likable and lucky”, is true, considering the way that it allows players to gain extra luck.

Major warning: considering the armor is acquired in the ninth main story mission, players will need to play through the first 9 chapters.

For the 9th quest, players will need to make their way over to Midgard, from where they will need to find the wolves at the kennel, open the gate, and then follow the wolves to Norns and track them. 

Find the norns at the Well of Urd and then get rid of the Frost Phantom, and then leave the norns.
