Considering VS aptitudes and the UC tendency to wear light armour, I'm amazed you emphasize Armour skill at all here. I might get 2 or 3 levels to negate the measly penalty from my leather, troll leather, or swamp dragon armour, but I'd turn it off and focus Dodging beyond that, especially since most serious fights would be in a Transmutations form. Thoughts? --MoogleDan (talk) 15:27, 29 August 2014 (CEST)

VS is equally bad at both skills, but with medium Armour Ash will add his blessing to both (if you skilled them). In general you should have more than enough spell-skill (being on your way to higher forms), so you can take the encumbrance. Fights will be mostly with Blade Hands during midgame so body armour becomes an important line of defense. Don`t worry about the UC penalty.
Once Dragonform is reached, your defenses will turn kinda horrible, but more dodge won't improve EV much here. In Lichform the stacking AC from and your Armour can make you rather tanky.--BlueCrake (talk) 22:40, 29 August 2014 (CEST)

Oh, and you might want to drop the reference to Hall of Blades, as that place is gone in 0.15. --MoogleDan (talk) 15:41, 29 August 2014 (CEST)
