Boasts the highest defense out of any armor in the game, but in return reduces your dexterity by 10, compromising your DPS output significantly.
Candy-Coated Armor (commonly referred as CC) is best for Warriors, when paired up with a high-tiered helm. They can sacrifice a little bit of dexterity for a giant step forward on defense, which can be easily reimbursed with their helm, even more when also paired with a high-tiered dexterity ring, allowing them to easily boost their defense, yet while maintaining their high offense.
Paladins and Samurai can find a niche use for this armor, as their abilities does not come with any additional defense, unlike a Warrior’s helm or a Knight’s shield. While it can help Paladins and Samurai catch up to the other melee classes in defense, one should note that they have the low (55 for Paladin and 50 for Samurai) dexterity of all the classes, and equipping Candy-Coated Armor will only exacerbate this trait (though their abilities grants Dex bonuses which somewhat mitigates the -10 Dex).
Candy-Coated Armor is not often worn by Knights as they need their DPS, which is the lowest of the sword classes. In addition, they already have the highest defense of any class (and capable being Out of Combat most of the time), so the extra 2-6 defense won’t be nearly as beneficial to them.
With the introduction of Oryx the Mad God 3 and his T15 armors, Candy Coated Armor has essentially been outclassed by the Annihilation Armor. This is due to the latter armor offering a comparable +28 defense without any compromise in offense, making it a powerful end-game upgrade.
As the release of In Combat/Out of Combat, this armor now can fill the niche of remaining OoC in certain circumstances.
Interestingly, its -10 Dex can be mitigated by pairing it with Ring of Unbound Dexterity.
