Armor has four different types: Cloth, Leather, Chain, Plate. The limitations of what types of armor a player can use are based on the class a player has chosen.

Templars and Gladiators have the ability to wear all four types of armor, but mainly rely on plate armor for its high Physical Defense to give them the resilience to fight on the front lines. Chain armor, while less resilient than plate, allows Clerics and Chanters the ability to move about the battlefield healing and buffing their allies while still providing protection in melee combat. Leather armor is used mainly by Assassins and Rangers. Its high evasion allows them to be quick and mobile while striking from the shadows. Cloth armor is the only type of armor Sorcerers and Spiritmasters can wear. Its high Magic Boost greatly increases spell damage; however, its low physical defense requires them to stay well outside of harm's way.

Types of armorEdit

TypeDescriptionProfession
Cloth Instead of providing physical defense, cloth armor adds to a characters magic abilities.

Mainly used by both Sorcerers and Spiritmasters.

Tailoring
Leather While having more physical defense than cloth, leather armor increases the evasion abilities of a character.

Mainly used by Assassins and Rangers.

Chain With increased physical defense, chain armor, like cloth armor, is used to moderately increase the magical abilities of the wearer.

Mainly used by Chanters and Clerics.

Armorsmithing
Plate Having the highest defensive capabilities, plate armor allows the wearer more resilience to be in the front lines.

This armor is exclusive to Templars and Gladiators.

Shields The shield is used in the off hand and can both increase the resilience of its bearer as well as help to reduce damage when a block is made. Clerics and Chanters, in some cases, can use these items to help increase their magic abilities. While used by Gladiators when needed to help tank, Templars use this item for both defensive and offensive abilities while defending their comrades in battle.

Armor EnchantmentsEdit

Unless the armor states "Unenhanceable", armor can be enchanted with Enchantment Stones. Enchanting enhances the armor by adding additional defense, HP and Strike Resist. The amount of each attribute that is added is based on the armor type and position.

Armor Sets Edit

Armor sets can obtained through quests, NPC drops and coin rewards. They can also be purchased with Kinah from armor merchants, with AP from contribution merchants or purchased with other commodities such as <Circle Tokens>, <Groggies> or <Crucible Insignias>. Each item in the set should be named similarly, like the Fenris Chain set. Most armor sets provide bonuses for wearing multiple items of the set. Armor sets also mesh properly and are dyed the same default color for a more consistent appearance.
