Armor is a subcategory and type of apparel that generally offers good protection from damage, poor insulation and, in some cases, move speed penalties.

All apparel functions in the same way mechanically. Clothing and Armor primarily differ only in their categorization and a tendency to prioritize either damage or environmental protection respectively. Therefore, see Apparel for details on the mechanics common to all types of apparel.

  • Each kind of gear is worn on a specific location of a person's body. That location is determined by two things:

    1. The body part groups it covers.
    2. The layer or layers it occupies. A layer basically says how far away from the body a piece of gear is worn.

    Which body parts have which layers is shown in the table on the right; layers and body parts which are not currently used by gear were omitted.

    You cannot wear two pieces of apparel with overlapping coverage in the same layer.
