This page needs improvement, and is lacking information or may contain inaccurate/outdated info due to a recent update. Feel free to edit this page to add or correct information. More pages that need updating can be found in this category.

For a list of all armor, see Category:Armor.

Armor is a type of wearable item that partially protects the player against attacks.  Armor comes in three pieces: head, chest and legs. All slots provide a Defense bonus and a Warmth bonus, Energy capacity bonus and Health bonus. Some Vanity armor raises Energy regeneration.

Racial Armor AbilitiesEdit

As of v. Upbeat Giraffe, Racial Armor no longer gives abilities.

Armor will have different benefits depending on the race it belongs to.

  • Avian: Allows you to glide
  • Apex: Allows faster running capabilities and higher leaps, greatly increasing mobility
  • Floran: Allows sunlight to be converted into extra energy
  • Human: Allows you to carry more items
  • Hylotl: Allows you to swim faster
  • Glitch: Allows you to mine faster
  • Novakid: Generates a currently unknown amount of light; The armor is currently still unknown but in the latest version the Novakid is available to play.

The armor gives these abilities, not the race itself. It is likely that players will have to be wearing a complete set to gain these abilities. As the player progresses through the game, they will be able to craft other race's armors and gain their abilities, but at the start players may only craft their own race's armor. more abilities will hopefully be added in the future. 

TiersEdit

There are 10 tiers of armor for each race, with tier 1 being the worst and tier 10 being the best. All race armor prior to Novakid's has been implemented, however the stats may still change due to balancing updates.  Each tier corresponds to a different crafting material.

Starting ArmorEdit

Starting armor are the clothes the player choose to start the game with at the character creation screen. Each one of the races have their own unique armor that they can choose from, and later weave with a yarn spinner.

A list of the different races starting armor is available at: Racial Starting Armor.

Non-Racial ArmorEdit

As of v. Upbeat Giraffe, Non-Racial Armor no longer exists. This is not including Makeshift Armor, which is still craftable.

Racial ArmorsEdit

Each Race has its own craft-able armor which can be unlocked by completing upgrades.   The player can obtain the armor of other races via merchantsblueprints , or other players.  In the current version, v. Furious Koala  (26/01/2014), all race armor of the same tier still has the same base stats.   For example, this means that tier 7 avian (Peacock Set) has the same stats as tier 7 floran (Gatherer's Set).  It is possible this may change in future updates.

NotesEdit

  • Although each race has different armor, it is possible to find and equip armor from other races.
  • Armor pieces that only affect the player's appearance are called Vanity Items.
  • The stats displayed in-game are rounded up.  Actual stats often have decimals.

TriviaEdit

  • There are over 70 different sets of craftable armor.
  • There is a space helmet that is a reference to 'Doom' along with another that is a reference to 'Dead Space'
