Man armour class

From LSWiki

Jump to: navigation, search


Consult the table below for how valuable and rare armour of a given class should be. The examples given are for reasonable-quality human-made armour of ordinary-grade materials (until such is no longer applicable). Enchantment or superior craftsmanship and materials will give better ACs along with higher value.

Remember that value is generally HALF of cost. Armour should cost twice the amount listed to buy if not more. The values given are those recommended for full suits, hauberks (chest, arms, and legs), helms, and gloves. Breastplates should cost as much as helms and boots as much as gloves; estimate other types from there.

Also consider any special bonuses associated with the armour in the calculation of value, like immunities granted and other special powers.

NOTE: If you change your armour value by more than +-50% you must include a comment explaining why you have changed the value so much.
