Best Unique Armor

Highland Armor

Highland Armor.jpg

This armor is one of the best Armors for solo play melee builds. It reduces incoming damage and increases your melee damage at the same time, which is perfect for getting into a group of mobs and mowing them down with your melee weapon.

As if that wasn't enough, it negates the slow down you usually get from Rolling and grants you a Speed buff instead! Need we say anything more? Use the Highland Armor to always come in swinging better, faster, stronger.

Archer's Armor


This armor is great for a hit-and-run ranged build. It has everything you need, fast movement speed, more arrows, and more damage with your ranged attacks.

A must-have for anyone who wants to deal damage from afar and never let any mobs get close!

Souldancer Robe

This armor is great when using an Artifact Soul Build! Not only do you absorb more souls with it, but there is also a chance that you will negate a hit, dealing no damage to you!

The best bonus this armor gives is the significant Artifact damage bonus. This makes Artifacts like Harvester deal way more damage.

Best Common/Rare Armor

Scale Mail

Scale Mail (1).png
A good armor for a melee builds if you don't have any good Unique armor. It has decent all-around effects that any melee build would benefit from.

It's nothing fancy but it gets the job done!

Soul Robe

Soul Robe (2).png
It's abilities are almost exactly like the Souldancer Robe, so while it doesn't have the chance to Negate Damage, it's still effective for increasing your Soul gain and Artifact damage.

You can Heal with the extra Souls too, so we strongly recommend this if you don't have any good Soul Build Unique armors.

Reinforced Mail

This armor has the best defense in the Common/Rare category. This is a great armor for any Tank Build, allowing you to soak up a lot more damage than other armors.

The downside of this armor is the longer cooldown for the Roll. With your defenses, however, you won't need to Roll most of the time anyway, so it's not too big of a deal!
