Partial Armor (5e Variant Rule)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Partial Armor[edit]

Partial armor only grants its AC bonus if you are wearing light or no armor. If you are wearing only one piece of partial armor, you are still considered to be wearing your base armor type (e.g. no armor or light armor). If you are wearing two or three pieces of partial armor, you are considered to be wearing the heaviest type among the armor pieces you are wearing (e.g. medium or heavy armor). You cannot benefit from wearing four or more pieces of partial armor.

Notes[edit]

Characters who are proficient in heavy or medium armor but who choose to wear light armor or no armor can mitigate the AC loss by wearing partial armor.
