Heavy Armor Proficiency


Benefit: You are proficient with heavy armor, and do not suffer the armor check penalty to attack rolls when wearing heavy armor. You also gain 2x your base attack bonus in physical resistance when wearing heavy armor.


  • A piece of armor with an ACP of 0 can be worn without penalty by all characters whether they're proficient with it or not. You will however still be reminded in the upper right corner of the screen that you are not proficient with what you are wearing.
  • The armor check penalty to skills (if any) and arcane spell failure (if any) of the armor you equip will still apply.
  • Only characters proficient with this type of armor will receive increased PRR.
  • Cleric, Fighter, & Paladin classes all receive Heavy Armor Proficiency as a Class Feat at level 1.
