A piece of Iron armor

Armor is a type of equipment intended to protect a pony from losing Health. It is available in several pieces and a variety of forms, and can sometimes be seen being worn by NPCs.


Some merchant ponies (Bluebell, Buttercup, Free Trade, Sales Pitch (iron armor only), and Silky Roads) will sell pieces of armor. Armor can also be traded between players.

Dragons will occasionally drop a piece of brass armor when defeated.

Lieutenant Snipe will give a Brass Helmet as a reward for completing the quest he gives.


Armor must be worn to provide any defensive effects. This requires a piece of armor to be placed in the appropriate equipment slot of a pony's inventory. Once worn, the player's statistics will be modified by the armor.

Armor reduces incoming physical damage by a percentage, based on the Armor stat. This is calculated by the formula

Percentage reduction = Armor / (Armor + 165)

Different equipment slots can be filled at the same time with armor pieces made from different materials; they do not have to match to be effective.


A full set of armor consists of five pieces:

  • Helmet (occupies the Hat slot)
  • Back Plate (occupies the SaddleBag slot)
  • Chest Plate (occupies the Shirt slot)
  • Front Legs (occupies the FrontShoes slot)
  • Back Legs (occupies the BackShoes slot)


Pieces of armor can be made of various materials, identifiable by their color.

Purchased and Drops[]

These armor sets can be bought by various Merchants around Equestria with the exception of the Sunlight and Moonlight Armors. Those can only be obtained as drops from max level monsters.

  • Horse armor is termed "barding". It was most common in the Middle Ages to prevent knights from having their mounts killed which made the heavily armored knights easier to defeat.
