This is a list of Armor Armor in Final Fantasy XIV. Most armor is, with the exception of Shield Shields, equipped in the left-side equipment slots on the character sheet, below the Weapon Weapon slot. Armor provides the bulk of a character's defense and magic defense and the majority of their stats, with body and leg slot armor being second only to weapons in stats provided.

Lower levels armors are less strict in which classes can equip them. Starting at level 50/60 depending on the role, they are split into 9 distinct groups using a common naming scheme (eg. Ironworks Armor of Fending, Ironworks Doublet of Casting) that determines which jobs can equip them based on their role, primary attribute, and defenses. These categories are as follows:

Category Role Primary attribute Defense Magic Defense Jobs
Fending Tank Strength Very high Very high Paladin Paladin Warrior Warrior Dark Knight Dark Knight Gunbreaker Gunbreaker
Maiming Melee physical DPS Strength High Average Dragoon Dragoon
Striking Melee physical DPS Strength Average Average Monk Monk Samurai Samurai
