List of Armor

From Golden Sun Universe
Jump to: navigation, search
Armor redirects here. for defensive equipment in general, see Equipment.

Body armor in the Golden Sun series belong to multiple classes which distinguish themselves by which individual Adepts can equip them. The pieces of armor listed here belong to the Armor class of armor, which can be equipped by all warrior-style Adepts to date: Isaac and Garet in the first game; Felix and Piers in the second game; Matthew, Tyrell, and Eoleo in the third game.

All armors that are counted as "common" are armors that can be bought in unlimited quantities in an armor vendor's Buy menu and are sold without event. All armors that are counted as Artifacts are special, stronger armors that do not appear in the Buy menu. These are bought and sold individually and usually are unique, and if one appears in the Artifacts menu of a town's vendor that one armor can be bought by itself and then be sold by itself anytime afterwards to reappear in the Artifacts menu. The vendor shopkeeper will specifically remark about how rare a find your Artifact is whenever you specifically sell one.

The prices the games assign to each armor are quite reliable indicators of how good each armor is as they measure against each other in actual battle. An armor that is priced higher than another is generally superior to that other armor even if the other weapon has a higher physical defense rating than the more expensive armor. Therefore, the following armors are all arranged by price. Also, they are divided into groups based on what game they first appear in. Keep in mind that many of these pieces of armor continue to be used in later games, even if they are not listed under that game's list of Armor.
