Armor refers to special protective equipment in Death's Gambit: Afterlife. Armor is used to mitigate damage, increasing resistances to elemental damages and status effects. There are three categories of armor slots available: Helmets, Capes and Boots. Some special armors grand bonuses to stats. Armor can be upgraded +1 to +10 through the use of Soul Stones and an Immortalite Stone. This page covers a list of all the featured armor in Death's Gambit: Afterlife.

Upgrading Armor

In Deatrh's Gambit: Afterlife, once you've rescued Zuma, the Acolyte of Death (this can be done early in the game), speak to him back at the Central Sanctuary and he'll teach you how to upgrade your equipment. From there, if you've also defeated the Soul of the Phoenix boss, you'll also gain access to upgrade your wares when you are resting at a Death Idol. Armor pieces can be upgraded +1 to +10 through the use of Soul StonesImmortalite and Dark Matter. To view your current inventory, press I.

Scrapping Armor

With the same concept, once you've rescued Zuma, the Acolyte of Death, you can also scrap unwanted or duplicate shields in exchange for Soul Stones, Armor Scraps and Meteorite Scraps. Scrapping can also be done from a Death Idol or speaking to Zuma.

      It looks extremely strange and a bit silly when there is no chest armor in this type of game. Extremely strange

        It's pretty lame that you get only +1 to each armor upgrade. 62 Soul stones, 62 Immortalite stones and 5 Dark Matter just for +12 to each stat. So much grind for nothing compered to weapon upgrades.

          Pretty surprised that the game has been out for so long yet not everything has a stat description or location description on this page.

            Where can I get/ or farm the Bloodstained Cape? Based on its stats it belongs to common gear, but the Forgotten Gaian drops the Conscript’s Cape +5 instead.
