Strong and unique armor is abundant in Divinity: Original Sin 2, if you're ready to look around and work for it. Some are carefully hidden and sprinkled across multiple Acts of the game, while some can be unlocked fairly early on for some additional protection. However, in true Larian style, not all armor is without a catch.

The Artefacts of the Tyrant is found early on in the game but is practically useless until each piece has been found. The pieces are actually cursed and inflict negative status effects on characters who wear them unless the full armor set is worn. So then, here's how to get the full set.

Updated April 6, 2023: While this armor set isn't the absolute strongest in the game, it's still a fantastic bit of kit. As such, we've taken another look at this guide to make sure everything is accurate and up-to-date.

Where To Find The Tyrant's Helm

Level Requirement

Stat Requirements

11 Strength

The helmet of the set provides three points of Magical Armor and 15 points of Physical Armor. In addition, it buffs your Strength by +1 and grants a special Purge ability, which, when used three times, will summon a monster known as Krylr, who must be defeated. It also lowers Leadership by one point.

To get the helmet, head over to the Decrepit Ruins roughly at the center of Fort Joy. The helmet is past the door that needs to be opened by using a cursed lever.

The chest piece of the armor set can be easily found during the quest 'The Vault of Braccus Rex.' During this quest, you'll visit the Dark Cavern, which has the treasure room of the fallen Sourcerer King. His chest plate is found in the final treasure room, over a brazier.

If the piece is worn without the full set, keep in mind the wearer will suffer from permanent Burning status effects.

The Heart of the Tyrant requires 11 Strength to wear and grants six points of Magic Armor and 34 points of Physical Armor. There's also a +10 percent Fire Resistance buff and +1 Warfare buff to be enjoyed.

The gloves of the set are much harder to get your hands on. In order to get to them, you need to first figure your way through the Gargoyle's Maze found in the southern parts of the island. The gloves are located inside a tower at the back of the maze, within a coffin that's found right next to a few barrels, a second coffin, and two chests.

Opening the coffin either requires a trap-disarming kit or a whopping Strength 18 attribute.

Without the full armor set equipped, the gloves will apply the Diseased status effect. Otherwise, they grant three points of Magical Armor and 18 points of Physical Armor. Additional effects include a +10 percent Water Resistance buff and +1 Two-Handed buff.

Where To Find Tyrant's Stride

The leggings of the set, when worn without the full armor set will slow your character down permanently.

When worn, they grant four points of Magic Armor, 22 points of Physical Armor, and buff your Constitution by +1. Additionally, you gain a +10 percent Earth Resistance buff.

To get these leggings, head to the Caverns south of the Fort Joy marketplace where the elves are staying. You need to play hide and seek with a child named Mody, who will eventually introduce you to his friend Withermoore inside the Ancient Passage.

Withermoore will give you a quest, but before you leave the passage, make sure to check a large statue in this area. You'll need 15 Wits to actually spot the Tyrant's Stride leggings on the statue.

The final piece of the set is the pair of boots. Make sure not to wear them without the full set, as they will apply a Crippled status effect on your character.

These boots grant you three points of Magic Armor, 18 Physical Armor, and buff your sneaking by +1, your movement speed by +0.25, and your Air Resistance by +10 percent.

Once you've left Fort Joy's prison through the main bridge, you might walk onto a northern beach where you encounter Windego for a second time since the introductory part of the game. After the fight, walk along the coast until you reach a tower with storm clouds inside of it.

The boots are inside the tower and to get inside, you'll need to get on the adjacent cliff and teleport one of your party members in.

Once you meet the requirements to equip each piece of armor, you can wear them all at once to prevent the negative effects.
