Armor in Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire are covered on this page. Armor is an equippable item that occupies the Body slot, and provides the wearer defensive bonuses during combat, particularly increasing his/her Damage Reduction (DR). Each piece of armor inflicts some penalty on the Recovery Speed of the wearer (Recovery is the amount of time that a character spends between actions). Heavier armor usually inflicts longer Recovery penalties, so your goal is to mainain a balance between your character's defense and his/her ability to attack enemies efficiently.

There are several types of armor available, each piece of armor has a particular level of quality (from Normal to Legendary), which affects the amount of damage reduced by armor. You can upgrade the quality of unique (and only unique) armor through its Enchanting menu.

This page enlists all pieces of unique armor available in the game. Some pieces of armor have bonuses that affect Armor Rating against certain type of damage or reduce Recovery Speed penalty, so the values displayed in respected columns already include such bonuses (only constant bonuses, however - conditional bonuses, e.g. on attacks, or those from potential enchantments are not included).
