In Overlord your protective options are restricted to a Helmet and an actual body Armor. Sacrificing minions can enchant them, to give you more defense, increase your maximum health & mana, and/or to add health
Your look will differ, depending on how "Corrupt" you are in the game:
- Low corruption — Shiny, Paladin look.
- High corruption — Dark and spiky Overlord look.
This is the armor you get from the beginning and it is by far the weakest of the three armor types. You will need to get the Steel Smelter for this kind of metal from Mellow Hills around the Spree's farmland once you get the Reds. This armor also changes, depending on the alignment.
|Steel||Gold||Max. # Minions|
Durium Gold Max. # Minions Armour 4000 575 Helmet 4500 1150
This is the most powerful armor you can get. It has the highest base defense without enchantments with the added bonus. Plus this armor changes depending on your alignment. You find the Arcanium Smelter in the Arcanium Mines in the Golden Hills.
Arcanium Gold Max. # Minions Armour 7000 1000 Helmet 8000 2,000-15
