Is it just me or has anyone noticed that Leather armour gives better base resists than platemail. also Barbed grants better resists than valorite. essentially making Platemail inferior to leather... which just is not right.. I am after a justification for this. The reasons i bring this up is leather has a much lower str req Leather is medible Leather is stealthable and in most MMO's Leather is considered inferior to plate for raw protection Granted Plate does have a good durability.
