Final Fantasy IX Armor

In Final Fantasy IX, armor is broadly broken down into the categories of body, head, and arms. Subdivisions within those three main types bring the number to seven. However, with a few exceptions, each subtype of armor is equippable by the same set of characters by and large. Each armor will teach a different subset of abilities, so plan accordingly when building out your party.
