Armour of Persistence

In Baldur’s Gate 3, The Armour of Persistence is a heavy armour from Damon in Act 3. The Magical Plate bonus on the Armour of Persistence reduces all incoming damage by 2, making you tougher to take down.

With the Legendary Persistence bonus, you get Resistance, meaning you take less damage from all sources, and Blade Ward, which helps you withstand Bludgeoning, Piercing, and Slashing attacks by only taking half of the damage.

Additionally, the Resistance cantrip makes you more resistant to spell effects and conditions, giving you a +1d4 bonus to Saving Throws. However, there’s a trade-off – you’ll have Disadvantage on Stealth Checks, so be mindful of your approach.

For main characters who are Paladins or Fighters, as you progress into Act 3, consider upgrading your armor, to the Armour of Persistence, and later with the Helldusk Armor. You can equip it to your character’s chest slot in the inventory. The user needs Heavy Armour proficiency or suffers penalties while wearing the armour.
