Armour

General Armour Introduction

⬥ There are three categories of armour:

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Power: any armour with a style bonus

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Hybrid: anything stated as "hybrid"

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Tank: any other item (also has more armour than power / hybrid)

⬥ Armour tiers are based on the level required to equip them

⬥ Equipping armour provides style and armour bonuses

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• These bonuses are based on armour category and tier

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Generally armours in the same category and tier will have equal bonuses

⬥ Wearing off-style armour slots (excluding cape slot) provides an accuracy penalty based on armour bonus

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• "Off-style" is any style that does not match your equipped mainhand / 2H weapon

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Hybrid gear incurs no penalty

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• This penalty is near-doubled (0.8→1.5) when using the Necromancy combat style.

⬥ Some armour sets have set effects which may be useful
