Description

Mechonis Armour can only be worn by Seven. This armour type is fairly balanced between Physical and Ether Defence, and all of the armour pieces (except drones) have a variation that have empty or pre-filled gem slots. Drones, which are classed as feet armour but are actually the wings on Seven’s back, are unique and not apart of any armour sets.
