The Valkyrie Mail is a Armor-class piece of armor found in Golden Sun: The Lost Age. It is acquired from a treasure chest early on in Mars Lighthouse, the final dungeon in the game's story. It is considered one of the best pieces of armor in the game.
The Valkyrie Mail features a defense rating of 53, and it increases the wearer's Critical Hit and Unleash Rates by 20%, a very powerful effect. The Valkyrie Mail is bought for 25500 coins while its resale value is 19125 coins. As a piece of Armor, it can be worn by four Adepts: Isaac, Felix, Garet, and Piers.
Many players would instinctively identify this as the best piece of body armor in the Golden Sun series. Its 53 Defense is the highest Defense rating afforded by any piece of equipment in the game, and it provides 20% boost to the Adept's Critical Hit and Unleash rates, a powerful effect that can be immensely useful depending on an Adept's equipment setup. The Valkyrie Mail outperforms the Mythril Clothes, which has 49 defense and a 15% boost to Unleash rate (but it is wearable by any Adept), and the Xylion Armor, which has 50 defense and increases attack by 12. The Valkyrie Mail's only drawback is that only one can be found, but it is an easy to reach treasure chest, so all players will make it to the end of The Lost Age with this armor in their possessions.
Combined with other specific equipment, an Adept can become a complete powerhouse warrior. Most weapons have an Unleash rate of 35%, including the obscenely powerful Sol Blade. If a Venus Adept using the Sol Blade wears the Valkyrie Mail to increase Unleash rate by 20%, then adds the Riot Gloves to add 20% more, then a Mythril Helm to add 12% more, and then a pair of Hyper Boots to add 12% more, that warrior will have a 99% chance to unleash the Sol Blade's Megiddo effect whenever he attacks physically. This is strong enough to One-Hit KO most normal enemies, and is excellent against the Doom Dragon final boss.
