For the non-armour equipment that occuppies the same slot, see clothing.

Armour is a type of equipment that provides bonuses to the wearer's Armour Class (AC), decreasing their chance of being hit by attacks.

Categories of armour[edit | edit source]

Each armour has a type that, generally speaking, determines its Armour Class and appearance. Each armour type also belongs to one of three categories: light, medium or heavy.

Light armour
Provides some protection without sacrificing mobility. Creatures wearing light armour add their full Dexterity modifier to their AC.
Medium armour
Provides moderate protection, but hinders mobility. Creatures wearing medium armour add their Dexterity modifier to their AC, up to a maximum of +2. Some medium armour types also give disadvantage on Stealth checks.
Heavy armour
Provides maximum protection, but severely hinders mobility. Creatures wearing heavy armour do not add their Dexterity modifier to their AC and have disadvantage on Stealth checks.

In addition to these three categories, shields are a type of armour equipped in the character's off-hand.

Armour proficiency[edit | edit source]

In order to to wear an armour efficiently, the wearer needs proficiency with that armour's category. A creature that wears armour it lacks proficiency with cannot cast spells, and have disadvantage on all of its ability checks, saving throws, and attack rolls.

Similarly to other armour, shields require the wearer to have proficiency with shields.

Additionally, some helmets, gloves, and boots also require proficiency with a certain category of armour.

Sources of armour proficiency[edit | edit source]

Armour proficiency is generally gained from starting class, race or feats.

Races: Human, Half-elf.
Feat: Lightly Armoured.
Medium armour
