Wizard Armor

Once you reach level 70 and have picked a Build for your Wizard, you will want to start assembling an armor set and weapons that complement it. Keep in mind that class armor sets are designed to enhance one or more of your character’s Skills, so we left some recommendations in the Best Armor Sets section to assist you in making your choice.

The rest of the guide comes with the full list of Wizard Armor Sets, their individual pieces, and their set bonuses.
