The Northern Armor Set provides very good defenses against all forms of Physical damage, and average against most types of elemental attacks, though it still provides slightly better defense against Fire.
The set can be obtained from the beginning of the game by choosing the Warrior class during Character Creation, and will remain useful up to the middle of the game, surpassing in overall protection when compared to other sets with similar weight encountered so far.
The helmet is an overall improvement over the Knight Helm, being lighter and still providing slightly better protection against Physical attacks, although falling a bit short against elemental attacks in return.
