Armor set refers to a group of armor pieces that are designed to match each other, have similar methods of acquisition, and whose names match. Most armor is part of an armor set which has a skin set of the same name, but some armor sets, such as Yakkington's armor, don't have a unique skin. In this case, the armor skin set is listed in the item's tooltip box. In the case of Yakkington's armor, the skin set is Scallywag armor. Some pieces of armor are not part of an armor set, or a skin set. These pieces are known as standalone armor.

It is important to note the difference between the armor name and the skin name. In many cases the armor name and the skin name are the same, however in cases where they differ, only the skin name matters for deciding whether or not they are part of a set. For example, karma armor is made up of pieces of armor that are not part of any set, but they all share a group of skin sets.

Armor sets can be broken into groups by their method of acquisition, however some sets can be acquired by more than one means, and in this case, an armor set can appear in more than one category.

Loot armor[edit]

Loot armor refers to armor found as loot, both dropped by fallen mobs and acquired through chests. Loot armor will be no lower than the players level, and no higher than the level of the monster that dropped it. It can be received in any rarity, from BBasic to FExotic. GAscended armor can even be found in chests, though this is extremely rare, and as such ascended armor is more properly classified as crafted armor. Loot armor has a tiered structure, usually with one set per tier for each weight. Most of these pieces can be acquired in a large number of ways, and details for this can be found on the armor pages itself.

PvP armor[edit]

There are currently two unique PvP armor sets. Players are also able to obtain dungeon armor skins by completing certain PvP Reward Tracks, in addition to the small chance to receive an ascended chest. It was previously possible to obtain certain other unique skins via PvP; however, this was under the old reward system, and those armor sets are now unobtainable. Note that the Fires of Balthazar Skin does not count as an armor skin, since back items are not considered armor.

Order armor[edit]

Order armor is armor that can be purchased once a player joins an order during their personal story. A character can only join one order, however upon purchasing the armor from the order merchant, players will unlock the skin that can be used on any other character via the wardrobe interface. All armor is rare and level 80. All sets cost Gold coin 88 Silver coin, except for Light Whisper's Secret armor, which only costs Gold coin 52 Silver coin because it doesn't have a shoulder component.

Gem Store armor[edit]

Gem Store armor is purchased from the gem store. When purchased the player receives six skins, one for each slot, which can be applied to armor for free. The skins will also be unlocked in the wardrobe, but using the wardrobe to apply the skins costs transmutation charges. There is no level requirement, but putting skins on low level armor means that transmutation charges must be spent to move it to higher level armor as the player progresses in levels.
