In Assassin's Creed Odyssey, there are legendary armor sets that players can obtain by completing missions, defeating specific bosses, or simply opening the right chests in the right areas. Obtaining and equipping a full set of legendary armor will grant players bonuses, some of which may change the entire course of their journey (including how they approach Odyssey's abilities).
While some legendary armor pieces may be acquired early on in the game, it's best to wait until at least halfway through the story until players start to really try to obtain full sets. After all, most of them require defeating members of the Cult of Kosmos - and that can be harrowing in and of itself. Plus, the Cultists aren't even introduced until quite a bit into the story.
Furthermore, equipping just one piece of legendary armor will grant players a bonus, but equipping all five pieces of equipment can either increase damage for all weapons and abilities, increase armor resistance, and perhaps even make players immortal in the grand scheme of things. Here's a full guide on the all the Assassin's Creed Odyssey legendary armor sets (images via PS4Trophies):

The final armor piece, Aspasia’s Circlet, is obtained by defeating the final Cult of Kosmos member, the Ghost of Kosmos.
In total, there are 12 legendary armor sets in Assassin's Creed Odyssey. Some of them will be relatively easy to obtain, while others will require some skill and ingenuity. But Ubisoft's latest installment is quite long and expansive, so there's no rush. After all, one or two of them can only be acquired after completing the game itself.
