Best Endgame Armor

Archer's Armor


Since Long-Range attacks are vital in defeating mobs and tough enemies, having an armor that boosts range damage is amazing. This is even better if your build primarily deals with long-range damage.

Frost Bite

Frost Bite

Frost Bite is great in dealing with mobs since it has the ability to stun mobs around it. Although it's not quite as viable when fighting against bosses.
