Armor works much like one would expect. It raises defense and magic defense, but lowers the evade rate.
* These items increase power by 10 (and since Hit% and Attack are functions of Power it increases them too). You can only get the increase for these items once (that is, you do not get double the increase by equipping two of these items).
** These items give Agility bonuses (and since Evade is a function of Agility it increases that too). You can only get the Agility bonus once (that is, you do not get double the increase by equipping two of these items).
*** These items can be bought only after you give the Mithril to Tobul and before you free Hilda from the Arena.
Some items protect against certain types of damage, and you can only get that type of protection once. That is, equipping the Diamond Helmet and the Diamond Gauntlet will not give you any more protection against Bolt than just equipping one of them. However, equipping the Diamond Helmet and the Ice Gauntlet will protect you against Bolt and Fire.
All armor can be equipped by and works equally well for all characters.
