Try as we might fighting naked will never be the thing to do in EverQuest II which means, at some point in time, every player will need armor. One of the best features of the game is the wide variety of armor options, but this also ends up being its downfall for players who are not well versed in gear jargon. No worries, we have the basics all laid out for you. From armor classifications to where you can find some of the most treasured pieces, we touch upon nearly every topic for dressing up your toon.

Rarity will help you decide what kind of armor you will want for the type of adventuring that you do. In general, Fabled and Mythical gear is only available to raiding players so the average person shouldn't feel like they need to be decked out in Fabled gear. Legendary is suitable for group orientated players while soloers will likely use a combo of quested Legendary, dropped or quested Treasured, and purchased Mastercrafted gear.
