In the months leading up to the game's release, Elden Ring's Raging Wolf armor set featured prominently in trailers and preview images. Additionally, the armor was also available during Elden Ring's Closed Network Test as the starting gear for the Bloody Wolf class. Its model is rich with detail and the overall design of the armor is incredibly stylish, and as a result, the armor quickly became one of the most iconic and fan-favorite sets of apparel in the game.

In the full version of the game, though, the Bloody Wolf class is no longer available ⁠— and that means you can't start the game off with the Raging Wolf armor set anymore. After combing the Lands Between for its location far and wide, though, we've managed to track down how (and where) you can get your hands on it. Here's everything you need to know about finding the Raging Wolf armor.

Getting the Raging Wolf armor in Elden Ring requires a fair amount of work and effort, but the process itself is straightforward. The first thing you need to do is reach Volcano Manor, which can be found at the end of the path that leads up to Mt. Gelmir. Check the map image above for the exact location of the manor. Once inside, you'll need to join the Recusants of Volcano Manor by speaking with Lady Tanith, the woman sitting next to a massive heavily-armored knight. Once you do, she'll give you a key that can be used to unlock the doors in the hall to her left.

The doors on the left side of this hallway lead to a large dining room with several NPCs and and some items on the table. Pick up the Recusant Finger and Letter from Volcano Manor from the table, then inspect the letter in your inventory. It will reveal that you need to invade and kill an NPC, marking their location on your map. Do this, return to and speak with Lady Tanith for a reward, and head back to the same table to find another letter. Repeat this process one more time.

Once you've completed your second assassination, go back to the dining room and speak to Recusant Bernahl, the armored NPC sitting in a chair, until he mentions going on a hunt with you. Bernahl will then mark the location of the two NPCs you need to invade on your map. They're located in Leyndell, Royal Capital, close to the West Capital Rampart Site of Grace (check the map image above for their exact location).

Travel there and use the interactive red sign on the floor to join Recusant Bernahl and battle the two NPCs you need to kill — Vargram the Raging Wolf and Errant Sorcerer Wilhelm. Once both NPCs are dead, you'll be teleported back to your world. Shortly afterwards, you'll receive the full Raging Wolf armor set.

Elden Ring is finally here, and it's available for $60 on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, and PC. It's one of the best Xbox games you can play right now if you're a fan of challenging RPGs, and we strongly recommend it.
