Armor Class Explained:Edit

Armor class is a numerical value that represents the amount of protection (be it through equipment or spell) that is possessed by the character.

The following values roughly define one's armor class in realistic terms:

  •      100/10: Naked
  •       0/10: Armored
  •      -250/10: Extremely resistant to attack and damage

A very low armor class will reduce a mob's chance of hitting you.  Most monsters of mid-level and higher have large to-hit bonuses and will hit you even if you have an extremely low AC.  However, an exceptional AC will also reduce the damage you receive when they hit you.

AC Example:Edit

A B30 vs. Bart the Bartender in Weeden. For this scenario, I buffed the bard this way:
  • the bard blurred himself (-20AC)  AC 80 (running AC)
    a cleric armored (-35AC)  AC 45
    and stone skinned (-30AC) AC 15
The bard wore:
  • a pair of Nike Airs (-6AC),  AC 9
    a pair of Bardic Signet Rings (+4AC),  AC 13
    a golden crown (-8AC),  AC 5
    a pair of demon-faced talismans (-10AC),  AC -5
    a Master's Cloak (-14AC),  AC -19
    a pair of bardic bracers (-6AC),  AC -25
    a Puff-Hide girth (-6AC),  AC -31
    a pair of lightning scorched drake leggings (-20AC),  AC -51
    a pair of bardic armlets (-7AC),  AC -58
    a pair of adamantite gauntlets (-4AC),   AC -62
    an Ephod (-50AC),  AC -112
    and an enchanted Protector of the Faithful shield (-36AC)  AC -148
Additionally, the bard debuffed Bart with
  • a hopelessness (-4 hitroll)
    an enrage (-8 hitroll)
Then I had a mage cast information on Bart.  Bart initially reported a hitroll of 20.  After debuffing (above), his modified hitroll was 8.   He never landed a blow during the ensuing melee.
To offset each point of mob hitroll, provide at least -15AC of equipment or debuffing to reduce the chance of taking damage during melee.

AC Equipment:Edit

Here's a list of AC equipment, sorted by AC.  Note that "positive" AC in this database is a representation of absolute armor class, which is represented as a negative number in the game.  In the following list, the positive numbers are absolutes.   (Equipment that damages AC is represented by negative numbers in the list below, if applicable.)
