Armor types are split up into three categories as mentioned above: light, medium, and heavy. Each type shares the same abilities and passives reguardless of the material type. Light armors provide enhanced damage, and offensive abilities. Medium armors provide slows, movement speed boosts, crowd control defense, damage reduction and stealth. Heavy armors grant bonus life, armor as well as defensive abilities.
In albion online there are two types of damage, physical and magical. We will use PR to describe the armors physical resistence and MR to describe the armors magical resistence with Albion Online Gold. The higher your PR then the less physical damage you take and the higher MR, the less magical damage you take. Melee weapons and bows deal physical damage while staffs deal magical.
Material types are split up into three categories aswell: cloth, leather, and plate. The material composition determines the armor’s resistance ratios. For example: cloth armors will have a higher MR stat then the PR while plate armors will have a higher PR stat rather then MR. Leather armors are given a balanced PR & MR stat that is neither the best or worst.
