An armour made for centaurs, to wear over their equine half.

Centaur bardings are a type of armor intended for centaurs to wear in place of boots, which do not fit on their horse-shaped lower halves. Although significantly less common than boots, they provide double the AC and can be enchanted twice as heavily. In exchange, they do have a slight encumbrance rating, but this has no effect on your spellcasting, stealth, unarmed combat speed, or melee accuracy. The only negative impact is a loss of 2 points to your evasion, which can not be reduced by a high armor skill. Possible brands include:

AC from centaur barding is not penalized by a centaur's oddly-shaped body. Non-centaurs cannot wear centaur barding, though nagas have naga barding, a type of barding intended for them.


Version 0.12 replaced bardings of levitation with bardings of flying.
