Medium Armor Proficiency


You are proficient with medium armor, and do not suffer the armor check penalty to attack rolls when wearing medium armor. You also gain your base attack bonus x 1.5 in physical resistance when wearing medium 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.
  • Artificer, Barbarian, Cleric, Druid, Favored Soul, Fighter, & Paladin classes all receive Medium Armor Proficiency as a Class Feat at level 1.
  • Druid Medium Armor Proficiency is limited to non-metal armor by Druidic Oath. Wearing metal medium armor will cause the druid to be unable to cast spells or use class Spell Like Abilities.
  • Warchanter, Wizard / Sorcerer Eldritch Knight, and Enlightened Spirit can gain Medium Armor Proficiency through a Tier 4 enhancement, but this does not count as a prerequisite for the Heavy Armor Proficiency feat.
