Obtained from Optional Subquests

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.

Armor Spheres are used to increase an armor's defense value, but each Armor Sphere's value increases depending on what armor sphere it is. The more basic Armor Spheres give lesser value than the more advanced ones, so feel free to use the basic ones on low-rank gear.

    • Give us the ability to change our layered armor display. What I mean is, ya know how armor looks different on the male and female models? well, I wish there was the ability to change the appearance from the male models of armor, to the female models, and the reverse without changing the gender of your character itself. This would be really nice, as imo some armor pieces look better as the male model version.
