The Ritualist archetype introduced in the Awakened King DLC of Remnant 2 comes with its own set of unique gear, including the Zealot armor set that fits in nicely with Losomn’s drab and dreary locales.
Unless players start a new character as the Ritualist, they’ll have to go through a few hoops before they can claim the Zealot set for themselves. This quick guide for Remnant 2 shows exactly where to find this hidden outfit.
Remnant 2 Zealot Armor Set Location
To find the Zealot set, players need to go all the way to the Palace of the One True King. This area can be reached directly via the Forlorn Coast map — simply explore the coastal town while using the large castle in the distance as a guide. Players have to go through the Drowned Wen in order to reach the bridge leading to the palace.
After arriving at the palace, head to the left and up the stairs. In the area with the two Fae soldiers, drop down, and head to the spiral staircase leading below. There is a gold gate here leading back to the Forsaken Coast.
Once outside, eliminate all enemies on the bridge and cross to the tower on the other side. Be careful as there will be a Corrupted mini-boss waiting for players at the entrance of the tower. Clear everything on the bridge first, then fight the mini-boss for a Mutator reward.
Enter the tower and go down. Exit through the window near the bottom floor and walk towards the cliffside. Players will soon reach the underbelly of the bridge where countless bodies are hanging. Look above to see a Zealot hanging on a rope — shoot the rope to make the body drop to the ground, then loot it to get the Zealot armor set. The body won’t glow, but it will still be interactable. It will also show up on the minimap in case players forget to grab it.
Unlike the original Remnant, armor sets in the sequel do not grant any bonus effects. Players who want to get all the benefits of the Ritualist must use the archetype itself. All the Zealot set will provide are defensive stats. It comes with 90.4 Armor, 37.6 Weight, and positive resistances to all status effects except Toxic.
The witch hunter-esque style of the Zealot set meshes in well with other sets in Remnant 2, but it also has other uses. Wearing it is needed to get the Band of the Fanatic from the angry mob near the beginning of the DLC. More unique interactions like this may be hiding deeper into the Forsaken Coast.
