However, you should not judge a book by its cover, as you would be a fool to underestimate the true powers of the Armor.

Let’s start with the Strongest Piece of Armor, the Spiritual Shoulder Straps. The is already on level 4 when you craft it for the first time, so that gives it better stats as well for a Mid-Game Armor. The Shoulder Straps of the Spiritual Armor in God of War Ragnarok give you increased Strenght, Defence, and Cooldown. 

The base stats of the Armor at level 4 are 28 strength, 22 Defense, and 28 Cooldown. Though the strength may look a little low, it covers it up with the increased Defense and Cooldown. Also, all of these stats are improvable by simply upgrading the Armor. 

The Shoulder Straps also have a pretty powerful attack which makes up for the lack of strength in the Stats. The perk of the Spiritual Armor Should Strap in God of War Ragnorak is called “Arcane Strenght”. Arcane strength allows you to stack your Runic and Relics attacks and increase their damage but 15 percent per stack. The stacks have a maximum limit of 3 times.

The Spiritual belt is quite similar to the Wraps and has the same base stats of 32 strength and 18 Cooldown. They go hand in hand and also make the Shoulder Straps stronger.
