Welcome to the Robot Armor Shop, a shop dedicated to Armor protection best suited for hunting all types of Robots on Calypso. Robots have in common that they typically inflict a combination of Penetration and Burn damage, sometimes along with another damage type such as Impact, Shrapnel or Electric. Some examples of these are: Trooper, Warrior, Drone, Droka, Legionnaire, Attacker, Defender and Core Harbinger.
Some of the more popular Armors among robot hunters are for example Shadow, Pegasus, Hermes, Infiltrator, Cetus and of course the unlimited ones, Hunter Mentor Edition, Adjusted Vigilante and Adjusted Nemesis.
When I decided to create this Robot Armor Shop I was very interested in being able to compare Armors to see which ones were stronger and which ones had more Burn or more Penetration damage so I created a Table which would show exactly that. I am sharing this table with you below as I have come to realize that this a pretty useful tool.
See enlarged image
Along the bottom of this table you will see that Armors with mostly Burn protection are located on the left side while Armors with mostly Penetration protection are located on the right side of the table. All Armors having a balanced amount of both Burn and Penetration protection will be found in the center.
Along the left edge of the table is the total amount of Burn / Pen protection. The higher the number, the stronger the armor is. For example Pegasus is found at the top, in the row showing the number 80-99, because Pegasus has 52 Burn protection and 43 Penetration, which makes a total of 95 together.
At the top of the table I have added the names of mobs that typically could be hunted using armors in this table.
And lastly, I have color coded all Armor names so it's easy to see at a glance whether the Armor is available only in a Limited version (yellow), Unlimited version (blue), or both (white).
Note that some Armors have been omitted from this table for clarity, either because they are not well suited for defending against Burn / Pen damage creatures, or are no longer available or unique.
What to hunt:
Here is a new sign I recently added to the shop which shows all of the Burn/Pen mobs in EU:
If you need some help figuring out how you can use the information on the signs in my shops to tell what Armor and Plate combo you need in order to hunt specific mobs you want to hunt, here's a youtube video that walks you through that:
