Armor is your main protection in the world of VFO against your foes. Another way to enhance your armor is to equip Shields in your left hand.
Armor points converts into a resistance value. This is a % reduction on incoming damage for that damage type.
These are the types of armor pieces available:
- When you spam fracture, you can actually lower the enemies resistances into negative values, but there is a hard cap (approx. -30%)
- Bleed "dump" and poison "ticks" bypass armor resistances. Though that results in them not capitalizing on the negative value mentioned above.
