Chain armor is a type of metal armor.


The body and leg parts of chain armor are made from leather jerkin armor parts and chain of any kind. Only the chain helmet requires no prior armor parts and is instead crafted directly from 3 chain.

Armor Tiers and Durability

Different types of armors offer different protection values and durability. Additionally, they may hinder your movements speed and add to your hunger gain.
With moderate durability and minor penalty in walking speed, HP regeneration and bow accuracy/draw charge - depending on the metal used - the chain armor still makes for a good choice both for exploration and combat.
