10. Sage Set

Best Astrologer Armor for Magical Defense.

Why did I Choose Sage Set?

I chose the Sage Set for its outstanding Magic, Fire, and Light Damage Negation, making it ideal for Astrologer players relying on spells and incantations. The lightweight design enhances agility, crucial for dodging attacks, and the Vitality and Focus Resistance boosts contribute to defensive strategies, compensating for the lack of physical defense.

Elden Ring Sage SetSage Set


Although, you will be starting with the Astrologer set which is also a pretty good lightweight armor. But Sage Set will push the boundaries for the gameplay experience under the Astrologer class. Sage set fits the environment and the performance aspect of the class, thus allowing players to make the most out of their gameplay. 

Unfortunately, the Sage set is not ideal for Physical Damage Negation. But what this set lacks in the Physical Damage it makes up for is Magic, Fire, and Light Damage

Negation. Sage set offers values of 25.9 for Magic, 24.2 for Fire, and 24.9 for Light Damage Negation. Considering these stats, early-level players can easily start off an overpowered character early in the game. 

What makes this set best for Astrologer build is the lightweight and boost effects for Vitality and Focus Resistance. As a magic build, you will need a lot of defensive strategies to gain resistance from instant death after the battle and boss fights.

This is because your character will heavily rely on the weapon incantations and Spells to deal magic damage to the enemies. On the other side, it is essential to keep a safe side from the incoming strikes by faster dodge and movements. 

  • Excellent Magic, Fire, and Light Damage Negation.
  • Lightweight for agile movements.
  • Boosts Vitality and Focus Resistance.

  • Lacks Physical Damage Negation.
  • Not suitable for players prioritizing physical defense.

9. Snow Witch Armor Set

Best Astrologer Armor for Cold Sorceries boost.

Why did I Choose the Snow Witch Armor Set?

I chose Snow Witch Armor Set for its top-notch magical damage negation and unique bonus for Cold Sorceries, it complements the offensive playstyle of Astrologer builds. Its aesthetic appeal adds a touch of glory to the sorcerer’s appearance.

Like Sage set you will not have to worry about Physical Damage Negation. This is because you will be playing magic-focused playthrough to make use of Staffs dishing out damage and completely obliterating enemies. Snow Witch set is one particular armor that will greatly benefit players in defensive needs for gameplay. 


As for the looks, Snow Witch armor gives the looks of a supreme sorcerer. Apart from the looks, Snow Witch set stands out for Astrologer builds because of the unique effect on Cold Sorceries.

Speaking of damage, Snow Witch set grants 25 for Magic, Holy, and Fire Damage Negation. Meanwhile, players will also gain 24.7 for Lightening. These stats show that the complete set is a must-have during the battle with your worst enemies and boss fights. 

  • Excellent Magic, Holy, Fire, and Lightning Damage Negation.

Crucible Axe is a heavy-weight armor entry in the best Astrologer armor. Unlike previous sets, Crucible Axe makes up for both Physical and Magical Damage defenses.

Since your Astrologer character will not invest heavily in Endurance, which is important for Poise and resistances, Crucible Axe set will yield the best stats that go hand in hand for both Strength and Mage-focused builds.


Fire Damage Negation will push your character’s defenses even further. Not just that but Crucible Axe set also adds a 3.5% damage boost to the Aspect of the Crucible Incantations. These Incantations are dropped by the Crucible Knight Ordovis that is also wearing the Crucible Axe set. 

  • Balanced Physical and Magical Damage Negation.
  • Suitable for Strength and Mage builds.
  • Bonus damage to Aspect of the Crucible Incantations.

  • Heavy-weight armor.

Why did I Choose Queen of the Full Moon Set?

I chose the Queen of the Full Moon Set for its high magical defense and unique effects, adding a touch of elegance to the Astrologer’s appearance. 

Queen of the Full Moon set is another Astrologer armor that grants defensive stats and unique effects to your character. The cherry on top is the fashion statement, especially for the Astrologer class.

Although it will involve a story progression to obtain. But, it is surely worth the wait for your ideal sorcerer-style playthrough.

Queen of the Full Moon set is also a four-piece armor set that specializes in offering the best Magic and Fire Damage Negation to players.

This four-piece armor gives a greenish hellish look, that will keep the enemies away at the safe distance.

Best Astrologer Armor for Mage Builds.

Why did I Choose Alberich’s Set?

I chose Alberich’s Set for its all-rounded nature and the intriguing Glintstone lore, it also stands out for Mage character builds. The representation of character sacrifice enhancing Sorceries adds a unique and compelling element to this armor.

Alberich’s Set is the one particular armor available in the game that is an all-rounder for Mage character builds.

If that does not grab your attention, then the Glintstone on the set surely will. This is because these Glintstones represent the blood of the character of the sacrifice has made that will boost the Sorceries.

3. Spellblade Set

Best Astrologer Armor for Beginners.

Why did I Choose Spellblade Set?

I chose the Spellblade Set for its focus on enhancing weapon damage, particularly magic and frost,  making it ideal for early-game damage boost requirements. The addition of Glintstone sorceries boost on all pieces further enhances its appeal.

Elden Ring Spellblade SetSpellblade Set

As the name implies, Spellblade Set enhances the magic and frost weapon damage up to 2%. Sadly, you will not gain any boosts for Spells for this particular armor.

However, it will make up for the unique effect by offering ideal Damage Negation stats early on in the game. If that still does not amuse you, then you should definitely consider the Glintstone sorceries boost on all pieces.


  • Enhances magic and frost weapon damage by 2%.
  • Glintstone sorceries boost on all pieces.
  • Ideal Damage Negation stats early in the game.

  • Limited bonus percentage (2%) for Magic and Frost weapon damage.

2. Blackflame Monk Set

Why did I Choose Blackflame Monk Set?

I chose the Blackflame Monk Set for having the best defensive stats among Astrologer armors, making it the prime choice for players prioritizing Mage builds. Its accessibility in the Divine Tower of Caelid, despite involving parkour, makes it a feasible choice for dedicated farming.

Elden Ring Blackflame Monk SetBlackflame Monk Set

Blackflame Monk can easily become the best Astrologer armor. Thanks to the best defensive stats and easily accessible location, Blackflame Monk is the prime choice among players that seek Mage builds under Astrologer class. 


One of the best farming locations is the Divine Tower of Caelid. Here you will have to gain access to the basement. This process is going to involve parkour, so watch your step to avoid dying while making progress. Farm on the Blackflame Monk until you obtain all four armor pieces. 

  • Easily accessible location for farming.
  • Suitable for players seeking Mage builds.
  • Best defensive stats among Astrologer armors.

  • May require dedicated farming efforts to obtain all four pieces.
  • Involves parkour for access.
  • Leads to player deaths.

1. Carian Knight Set

Best All Rounder Astrologer Armor.

Why did I Choose the Carian Knight Set?

I chose the Carian Knight Set for its aesthetic appeal and balanced defense, making it stand out as an all-rounder suitable for both Physical and Magical defenses. The regal appearance adds a touch of grandeur to the Astrologer character.


The Carian Knight set might look more like a warrior armor set. But it is an all-rounder for both Physical and Magical defenses. Worn by the enchanted Knights of the Carian Royal Family, the complete set is a medium-weight armor set that stands out among all sets. 

Elden Ring Carian Knight Set
Carian Knight Set

Here is the complete guide on how you can obtain the full set of Carian Knight armor. Follow each step to easily get the armor early in the game and enhance your defenses for the worst enemy encounters in Elden Ring. 

  • Aesthetic appeal with shiny armor and robe.
  • All-rounder for both Physical and Magical defenses.
  • Worn by enchanted Knights for a regal appearance.

  • No specialized benefits for specific playstyles.
  • Medium-weight armor may affect agility.

Why Others Were Not Choosen?

  1. Errant Sorcerer Set: Lacks versatility and unique features, may be less aesthetically appealing to some players.
  2. Imp Head (Cat): Limited protective attributes and lack of cohesive set bonuses makes it less optimal for astrologer-specific roles compared to other available options.
  3. Lusat’s Set: Considered less desirable due to its weight, potentially impacting mobility.
  4. Mushroom Set: Offers minimal protection, making it suitable for specific scenarios like the Lake of Rot.
  5. Lionel’s Set: Heavy and looks too bulky, which doesn’t match the preferred light and magical style of the class.
  6. Redmane Knight Set: Heavy weight and lack of focus on the required attributes, making it less suitable for the mystical requirements of an Astrologer.

What Would I Recommend?

I would highly recommend the Snow Witch Armor Set. This set not only strikes an impeccable balance between magical damage negation and offensive capabilities but also stands out with its unique Cold Sorceries bonus. 

Alternatively, for those who prioritize a combination of accessibility and top-tier defensive capabilities, my recommendation would be more towards the Blackflame Monk Set. This armor set not only excels in providing the best defensive stats for Astrologer builds but also offers ease of access in the Divine Tower of Caelid.
