Elden Ring - Raya Lucarian Soldier Armor

If you’re trying to collect every set of armor in Elden Ring (I admit that I am), then you’re definitely going to want to get your hands on the Raya Lucarian Soldier set. This actually ended up on TheGamer’s list of the ten best armor sets in Elden Ring.

Now, I should point out that the armor set shown in that particular article is actually a mashup of two different sets: the Raya Lucarian Soldier set and the Cuckoo Knight set. I already wrote a guide to farming for the Cuckoo Knight set, so now it’s time to show off a simple farming method for the Raya Lucarian Soldier set. That set includes:

  • Raya Lucarian Helm
  • Cuckoo Surcoat
  • Raya Lucarian Gauntlets
  • Raya Lucarian Greaves
  • Lordsworn’s Straight Sword
  • Brass Shield

Your starting point is the South Raya Lucaria Gate Site of Grace. If you’ve done the Raya Lucaria Academy legacy dungeon, you should be familiar with this spot, as it’s the entry point to that dungeon.

Elden Ring - South Raya Lucaria Gate

From here, just work your way southward, following the road and killing everything in your path. The one enemy here that might give you some trouble is the giant head thing that looks like a character from Twisted Metal. You’ll notice there is a guy riding on the back of it, and you can get a stealth attack if you can sneak up behind him.

If you approach from this direction, most of the enemies should be facing away from you, so you can really use stealth to your advantage here. Now I’ll post a video of a run so you can see exactly what I’m talking about:

And in case anyone is curious, the armor I’m wearing in the video is Lionel’s set (which is also on TheGamer’s list of best armor in Elden Ring).

I should point out that the drop rate for this set seems pretty low. The good news is that there are a lot of Raya Lucarian soldiers in this area, and they’ll occasionally drop Smithing Stone [1], [2], and even [3]. You’ll also score some Cuckoo Glintstone, which can be tossed onto the ground to conjure up three Glintstone projectiles. So even though you’ll be here for a while, you’ll at least get some cool stuff for your efforts (on top of the armor set, I mean).

Love the guides, can we get more discussion of how the suits compare?

(Which is better for weight, or poise?)
