FFXII Armor Menu Icon.png

This article lists the armor in Final Fantasy XII, used to provide stat boosts, as well as potential other benefits, such as elemental resistance, permanent buffs, or boosting the elemental damage the wearer dishes out. Wearing multiple pieces of armor that all give the same elemental resistance does not stack, but certain different types do stack:

  • Weakness + Halve = Normal damage
  • Weakness + Immunity = Immune
  • Weakness + Absorb = Absorbs double
  • Halve + Absorb = Absorbs half

The cost given is the buy price, though not all equipment can be bought. The sell price is half the buy price.

Shields[edit | edit source]

FFXII Shield Menu Icon.png

Characters equipped with one-handed weapons or no weapon can equip a shield in their available hand. Shields add to evasion and magick evasion, and sometimes provide beneficial status effects or additional elemental resistance.

Shield Block augments add +5% to physical evasion per augment purchased. If a shield offers magickal evasion, Shield Block adds to that too. Magick evasion does not block status effect spells. Equipping a shield negates the Brawler augment, even if the character is still attacking bare-handed.

Some enemies have Ignore Evade as a passive ability, which causes their attacks to ignore all blocking and parrying. The player can gain the same ability by equipping the Cameo Belt. Shields that provide Magick Evade are still useful, however (though many enemy spells can't be evaded).

In the Zodiac versions, the original Escutcheon has been removed and Ashe's initial shield has been replaced with a Buckler. Shields can be equipped by the Foebreaker, Knight, Red Battlemage, Shikari (Shield Licenses 2 to 7), and Bushi (Genji Shield only).

The chance to block granted by gloves and shields and Shield Block licenses is checked separately to, and before, the evade from one-handed weapons. If the shield block fails, the game checks for the weapon block, and if that fails, the game checks for parry.[1]

Light armor[edit | edit source]

Light armor is the most basic of the armor types. It generally offers moderate defensive bonuses and HP boosts, the latter of which can be maximized by using the Bubble spell or equipping a Bubble Belt.

Light armor can be equipped by the Archer, Machinist, Monk, and Shikari.

Heavy armor[edit | edit source]

The strength bonuses offered by heavy armor are beneficial to any character, as all weapon damage formulas except Maces factor in strength alone, or more than other stats, when calculating how much damage will be dealt to the enemy (Guns and Measures ignore stats)

After the player gains access to the Bubble spell and the Bubble Belt accessory, HP becomes less of a concern and reducing the amount of damage taken by the characters becomes more important, for which the player will most likely choose the defense and strength bonuses of heavy armor.

There is a magnetic field during the battle with Vinuskar in the Stilshrine of Miriam, which will severely slow down characters wearing metal armor. Vinuskar also casts Slow, making charge times for those characters excruciatingly long. This also happens in the battle with Ultima, but Ultima does not cast Slow.

Heavy armor can be equipped by the Archer (top rank armor only), Black Mage (medium rank armor only), Foebreaker, Knight, Bushi (high rank armor only), Red Battlemage (medium and high rank armor only), Time Battlemage, and Uhlan.

Mystic armor[edit | edit source]

Mystic armor offers magick-related bonuses, such as MP and magick power boosts. These have a significant effect on all types of magickal actions, from casting black magick to damage an enemy to casting white magick to heal the party. Magick power is also a factor when determining damage dealt by katana, staves, and maces.

White and Black Robes have hidden elemental potencies: when a character equips them, all damage, both physical and magickal, associated with the element, is boosted by 50%. Elemental affinities do not stack.

In the Zodiac versions, mystic armor can be equipped by the Black Mage, Bushi, Red Battlemage, and White Mage.
