When a character equips a complete Armor Set, it provides some kind of bonus (when the character is in your party). The sets that multiply potch won stacks just like the Potch Finder Skill.

Destiny Set: Crown of Destiny, Robe of Destiny, Gloves of Destiny

Potch won after battle multiplied by 3.
Guardian Set: Guardian Casque, Guardian Chain Mail, Guardian Shield
Counter rate +50%.
Mole Set: Mole Helm, Mole Armor, Mole Shield, Mole Gloves
Make squeaky noises when you walk (not in battle).
Pale Moon Set: Pale Moon Casque, Pale Moon Leather, Pale Moon Necklace
Heal 25% of damage dealt after each standard attack.
Prosperity Set: Prosperity Hat, Prosperity Tunic, Prosperity Ring
Potch won after battle multiplied by 7.


Elemental Resistance is determined by the greatest level of resistance worn by the character. For example, a character with Flame Casque (Level 2 Flame resistance) and a Flame Amulet (Amulets have Level 1 resistance) will have Level 2 Flame resistance. Elemental resistance will reduce the amount of damage taken by elemental spells that corresponding to that element by the following amounts...
Level 1 resistance: 20%
Level 2 resistance: 30%
Level 3 resistance: 40%
