Once you reach level 25 in Fallout 76, you can get your first full power armor called Excavator; here's how to get it and what you need to know.
To get Excavator Power Armor, you will first need to get the Miner Miracles quest and complete it to unlock the Power Armor crafting schematics. That said, you can get this quest by heading to Garrahan Mining HQ and heading inside through the lobby as shown below.
However, before doing so, be sure to prepare yourself with the necessary supplies and weapons, as you will encounter some fearsome enemy robots in this location. Along with that, if a high level player passes through the area, the enemies might be beyond your level, you might need to skip the server if that's the case.
