The Ritualist is the first new Archetype added to Remnant 2 post-release. The class itself is strong with the right weapons and gears equipped but with all the new content that supports a status effect playstyle, it won’t take long for the Ritualist to find its place along with the rest of the game’s Archetypes.
What really stands out for me with this Archetype is how you can acquire the supporting items for this class. In the base game, you usually buy the armor set from Whispers, the armor vendor, after unlocking the Archetype. There are a few exceptions and it seems like the Ritualist is one of them. You can also get both the ranged and melee weapons for this class as potential rewards at the end of the DLC dungeons. You don’t have to go through hoops like what we had to do to get Ford’s Scattergun but they’re not walks in the park either.
This guide will tell you where you can find the armor set hidden somewhere in the Forlorn Coast map of Losomn. I will also tell you what each piece of armor does for you and the overall stats your character will have after equipping all pieces of the set.
You may have already seen the place where you can get the armor set the moment you step inside the Forlorn Coast map. As pictured above, the armor set is located in this bridge area. But the problem is getting there as it will require you to enter the One True King’s Palace near the end of the DLC.
Where to find Ritualist Armor set in Remnant 2?
To get to where the Ritualist Armost Set is located, you’ll need to have advanced in the DLC and have access to the Palace Palace of the One True King. It is worth noting that this is the path you’ll need to take in order to reach the tower where Ninue is currently being imprisoned.
Starting from the World Stone at the entrance, take a left and start going up the spiral staircase. Usually, you’ll keep going up to the top of the staircase. This will bring you on the path leading to the Chamber of the Faithless. But that’s not the path we need to take.
Instead, go into the side room with the two flying Fae and the broken guard rail. If you look down at the room below, you’ll see a spell caster chilling there, waiting for you to come down. It’s up to you how you want to handle the annoying enemy. Jump down to continue your journey.
Now that you’re in the lower chamber, it’ll do you a world of good to open the side door. This is a shortcut to the entrance of the palace. Afterward, go down the spiral staircase until you reach the bottom of the stairs. You’ve just found the door that leads to the back of the palace and the bridge that leads to the condemned tower.
In the courtyard of stone outside, you’ll find a checkpoint and an unlockable door. Opening this door will create a shortcut to the palace entrance. If you come from the lower path on the right, the newly opened door will allow access to the docks below.
The bridge to the tower is protected by one of the king’s spear soldiers and a couple of flying fae. They won’t attack you until you start approaching the bridge. A second group of flying fae enemies lie in wait at the other end of the bridge. You shouldn’t have too much trouble with the ambush but be careful nonetheless.
At the bottom floor entrance of the tower, you’ll encounter the Mangled Atoner Aberration. I suggest you fight it from the relative safety of the doorway. These guys have a surprising amount of DPS and an empowered aberration with Drain will make a frontal assault very difficult.
Defeating the Mangled Atoner and its minions will reward you with the Maelstrom Mutator.
With the area clear of enemies, all you need to do now is to get to the underside of the bridge. There are two paths that will lead you to where you need to go. But feel free to explore the place for anything loose scrap and resources. Essentially, you’re looking for the path that’ll lead you outside and around the side of the cliff.
The path I took most often was the open window on the lower floor on the right side of the structure. Just jump over and you’re on the path leading directly to the bottom of the bridge.
The armor set you’re looking for can be on the corpse of this Ritualist that’s been hung from the bottom of the bridge. Shoot at the Ritualist to make her fall to the ground. Interact with the body to collect a full set of Ritualist armor to add to your collection.
Ritualist Armor Set Strengths and Weaknesses
For a full breakdown of the Ritualist Archetype, check out my article explaining what the class brings to your Remnant 2 arsenal.
The set includes the following pieces:
The Ritualist armor set is a light set that gives you the maneuverability to freely move around and cast spells with little effort. This comes at the cost of armor effectiveness. If you’re going to rock this set into battle, know that you are vulnerable to most physical attacks. On the bright side, the set has higher-than-average SHOCK and BLIGHT resistance values. It won’t save you from the tip of the spear but at least you’ll look good as a decorative lawn ornament.
And that’s how you can find the Ritualist Armor set in Remnant 2: The Awakened King. Check back with us soon to find out how you can find the other remaining pieces of the set: the Ritual Scythe and Sparkfire Shotgun.
