Players have four different types of armor: Cloth, Leather, Chain, Plate. However, the limitations of what types of armor can be used are based on the class the player has chosen.

 

Gladiators and Templars, while able to wear all types of armor, rely on plate armor, made of thick metals, to give them the resilience to fight on the front lines. Chain armor, while less resilient than plate, allows Clerics and Chanters the ability to move about the battlefield healing and buffing their allies while still providing protection in melee combat. Assassins and Rangers use Leather armor in order to be quick and mobile while striking from a distance of from the shadows. Lastly, Cloth armor helps to enable the Spiritmaster and Sorcerer to cast powerful magic from beyond the reach of their enemies.

Instead of providing physical defense, cloth armor adds to a character’s magic abilities.

 

Mainly used by both Spiritmasters and Sorcerers.

Tailoring

Leather

While having more physical defense than cloth, leather armor increases the evasion abilities of a character.

 

Mainly used by Assassins and Rangers.

Tailoring

Chain

With increased physical defense, chain armor, like cloth armor, is used to moderately increase the magical abilities of the wearer.

Plate

Having the highest defensive capabilities, plate armor allows the wearer more resilience to be in the front lines.

 

This armor is exclusive to Gladiators and Templars.

   Shields

The shield is used in the off hand and can both increase the resilience of its bearer as well as help to reduce damage when a block is made. Clerics and Chanters, in some cases, can use these items to help increase their magic abilities. While used by Gladiators when needed to help tank, Templars use this item for both defensive and offensive abilities while defending their comrades in battle.
