Armor indicates any type of apparel item worn about the body to protect it from harm in The Elder Scrolls: Arena.
Your body is protected by various pieces of armor you can find at an equipment store. They can be classified in the following manner:
|Right Pauldron||Right shoulder and upper arm|
|Left Pauldron||Left shoulder and upper arm|
|Cuirass||Chest and back|
|Greaves||Waist and upper legs|
|Boots||Lower legs and feet|
Your Agility (AGI) rating can change your Armor Rating (AR) rating, as can certain types of equipment. Here is a list of the equipment and its affects on your AR. Note, because of the sheer volume of magical items available, this list is not complete. It is given as a guideline when buying armor or other items. 45
- Leather armor pieces -3 to your AR*
- Chain armor pieces -6 to your AR
- Plate armor pieces -9 to your AR
- Remember, +’s in AR are bad, and -’s are good. The lower your Armor Rating, the better protected you are.
