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 Sphere - How to Use

Type of Armor Sphere Value
Armor Sphere 1

Advanced Armor Sphere 20
Hard Armor Sphere 80

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.

      Player list provides all of their equipment information. But honestly that doesn't really matter mid hunt. Don't add DPS trackers. It gets really annoying hunting with someone thats just shouting out the damage numbers all hunt
