Good morning warriors, I am returning to the game and the bulk of my previous gametime was played before all of these crazy item properties were added. While im getting a handle on a lot of them and what I want for my characters, I am still confused about armor types and deciding what to wear. Back in the day, if my memory doesnt fail me, plate had the highest defense but you took a dexterity hit so there was a trade off. Now it seems that you can get max resistances while wearing leather or other sub-plate type items, so is there any benefit to wearing plate (and does it still have a dex penalty?). Id really like to wear all plate but I am trying to understand what the trade offs (if there are any, anymore) are between each of the armor types (chain, ringmail, leather, plate, etc). Thanks for any thoughts you have.
