Elder Scrolls:Armor (Skyrim)
Armor is a type of apparel found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. When worn, armor increases a character’s armor rating and thus helps to reduce the overall damage inflicted from physical attacks. In addition to offering protection from physical attacks, armor can be enchanted to grant additional types of protection, to bolster certain skills, or to increase stats such as Stamina or Health.
There are two types of armor available, Heavy Armor and Light Armor, both with their own skill tree and associated perks. Both types have their advantages and disadvantages. Use of the Steed Stone can negate many of the the disadvantages of heavy armor.
