Ghillie armor offers decent physical protection, good cold protection, and very good heat protection. The entire set provides 24 cold protection, and 155 heat protection. The armor also provides some unique benefits include camouflage and it’s used for obtaining honey from allied beehives. All of the aspects combined make the Ghillie suit a good general purpose armor, unlike some of the other more specialized sets like Fur Armor.

How to Craft Ghillie Armor

To craft the Ghillie armor you must first reach level 33 and learn the engrams. You will also need to have learned the prerequisite hide armor in order to learn the Ghillie armor engrams. Ghillie armor can be crafted from your character’s crafting menu. It does not require a specific crafting bench to craft. It will cost you 26 Organic Polymer, 40 Hide, and 18 Fiber to craft the complete set.

The resource cost to craft the entire set is quite low, but obtaining the organic polymer can be dangerous. You can harvest organic polymer from the following creatures.

  • Kairuku – Resembles a penguin
  • Hesperornis
  • Mantis
  • Karkinos
  • Ichthyosaurus

You can also tame an Achatina (giant snail) to produce organic polymer for you. This method also extends the spoilage timer on organic polymer. The grinder can be utilized to convert polymer based items into organic polymer as well. This method is not very efficient, so it’s not recommended. However, it is an option that’s available.

You can also harvest the large white plants with big orbs for flowers. Harvesting these will yield a decent amount of organic polymer each time they are harvested. You do not need any tools to harvest them, you harvest these plants just as you wood a bush for berries and fiber. These plants can be found in Aberration, Valguer, and Fjordur.
