The Armour skill improves the effectiveness of your armour and reduces most of the penalties associated with the more cumbersome varieties of body armour.

Felids, Draconians and Octopodes cannot train Armour due to their body restrictions.

Useful Info

Each level in Armour skill will:

  • Give bonus AC, equal to ~4.5% Base AC per level. ("Base AC" is the combined AC of all your armour, excluding AC from their enchantment)
  • Reduce body armour encumbrance by ~2.22% per level.
This reduces the penalties to evasion, spellcasting, and Ranged Weapons. Note that body armour also penalizes the Dodging skill; this penalty is not impacted by Armour skill. It won't reduce the stealth penalty, either.
