The heavy armour is a recurring suit of armour in the Dragon Quest series. It protects the wearer against fire and ice damage.
The heavy armour provides +50 points to a character's defence at the cost of -30 points to their style. It negates 10 points of non-magical fire and ice damage, and may be worn by the Hero, Carver, Terry, Amos, Lizzie, and Goowain.
The heavy armour has a defence bonus of +50, but reduces style by 30. It can be equipped by the Hero, Ruff, Sir Mervyn, and Aishe. Heavy armour can be purchased in Providence, Nottagen, and Rucker Castle for 9,500 gold and sold for 4,750. It can also be won as a prize from the Lucky Panel at the Casino.
The heavy armour has a defence bonus of +52, and negates 15 points of fire and ice damage. Only Yangus can wear it. It can be upgraded into bandit mail in the Alchemy Pot by combining it with a bandit axe and bandit's grass skirt.
