The Flame Armour is a recurring armor in the Dragon Quest franchise. It is typically a late-game piece of equipment, usually reserved for the Hero and "macho" styled characters. Many players bring a set with them to the final boss even if they do not have it equipped through the accompanying dungeon thanks to it's innate ice resistance.
The flame armour has a defence bonus of +70, and reduces damage from crack spells and freezing breath skills by 15. It is sold in Faerie Lea and Precaria for 15000, and may be equipped by the Hero (Dragon Quest V), Parry, and Tuppence.
