Armor can both describe the equipment type and the player character stat.

The Armor statEdit

The Armor characteristic allows the players to sustain less damage from attacks. When an attack or damaging effect affects the player character, first the Armor value is taken into account, reducing the incoming damage by equal percent. The Armor characteristic only reduces Normal damage and is absolutely useless against Piercing damage.

The Armor equipment typeEdit

A character in Earthrise have 5 different armor slots; helm, vest, gloves, leggings and boots. There are many different types of armor which characters are able to combine, as long as they meet the required skill for each piece.
