Armor check penalty

From DDO wiki
(Redirected from Armor Check Penalty)
Jump to: navigation, search

Armor check penalty (ACP) is a penalty to some skills due to the restrictiveness of certain armors and shields.

The following are subject to Armor check penalty:


Armor check penalties from armors and shields stack.

Non-proficiency penalties[edit]

ACPs always apply to your skills. Non-proficiency with an armor or shield causes its Armor check penalty to apply to your attack rolls as well.

Carrying capacity[edit]

Carrying capacity also can cause an Armor check penalty.

Note that medium encumbrance does not give any visual feedback, except that you run slightly slower. This may lead to unexpected deaths while swimming.
