You can easily amass a lot of Armor Spheres just by completing the Optional Subquests. They're quite convenient too since you can complete them alongside your main quests.

Side Quests Guide | Optional Subquests

Obtained from Quest Rewards

Armor Spheres can also be obtained as a reward for clearing quests. However, the probability of it appearing as a reward is not high, so it's not recommended to go looking for it through this method.

Obtained from Endemic Life

Endemic Life (Crafty Creatures)

Armor Spheres can also be obtained from the Crafty Creatures type of Endemic Life. However, these Lizards' locations are pretty obscure and random, so you might want to refrain from looking for them to farm Armor Spheres.
