Minecraft Dungeons armor guide: every perk listed

Best armor for your hero

Featured post Looking at the Wolf armor in Minecraft Dungeon's inventory screen.

Getting the best builds in Minecraft Dungeons requires finding the best armor. There are a lot of base armor types and each one has a unique variant that grant an exclusive buff.

The most desirable unique armor types can allow your hero to take more hits from foes, or can reduce cool down for your artifacts. To help identify which ones are the best for your build, our Minecraft Dungeons armor guide lists every known armor in the game, along with every perk.

This guide also includes the ocelot armor and its unique variant that came with the Jungle Awakens DLC.

Since you can only equip one piece of armor at any time, it’s vital that you know what each one does so you know which level to look for it.

Each piece of armor has up to three choices for enchantments, and we just so happen to have a full armor enchantment list in our Minecraft Dungeons enchantments guide.

You can also have a look at our Minecraft Dungeons best builds guide for specific builds for your hero.

Minecraft Dungeons armor list

Here is the full Minecraft Dungeons armor list, including the ones from the DLC packs. The list includes every single perk that each armor has.

The unique armor type list also includes the base armor type that the unique armor is based on. For the sake of clarity, all the perks for every unique armor have been included on the list. However, since defensive bonuses to health scale up with the total power level, they are not listed here.
