Overlord Wiki

Armour in the Overlord Series protects you from damage, and if you are willing to sacrifice your minions, you can boost its stats significantly.


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
Armour 2000 325
Helmet 2500 675


This metal is better than Steel as it provides more base defense. You can get the Durium Smelter in the Understreets of Heaven's Peak.

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

Overlord: Raising Hell[]

In Overlord: Raising Hell, there are unique moulds to be found in the Abysses, letting you create two unique armor parts. They have special effects, and do certain kinds of damage.

The Armour of Fire along with the The Harvesting Helmet.

Overlord II[]

Infernal Armour, 3rd forge stone — Overlord II

In Overlord II, you need Forge Stones (to be found in Nordberg, and Empire Harbour) and that give you a few additional armour options for helmet and body armour.


Overlord's damaged armour can be considered as "very-first armour".

Note: This armour is only available during the Prologue.
