Description

All character, except Seven, can wear Medium Armour, if they equip the right skill link. Sharla, Reyn, Shulk and Dunban can all wear Medium Armour by default. Medium Armour does not prioritise a certain defence, and instead offers a balance between Ether and Physical defence.

Glory Set

This set is unique to the other sets in this list because each armour piece comes with a gem prebuilt into it. The defence rates on this armour set far exceeds the other armour sets, however, it is down to the player to decide whether the gems that come with the armour are suited to their needs, otherwise, you may decide you’d rather sacrifice the defence for the empty gem slot. Some would consider this armour set the strongest in the game though, because the gems are incredibly useful and the defence is significantly higher than the other medium armour sets.

Total Ether Defence: 785
