View Full Version : Question re: sneaking and armor

01-27-2010, 08:31 PM
I'm a level 5 rogue and I just took a level of fighter. How do I find out how much medium armor hurts my Move Silently? Also, does Medium armor come in Blueshine and XXXX of Silent Moves? I'd imagine probably not since its probably not designed with rogues in mind.

Your Armor's Armor Check Penalty is a negative to certain skills....like Hide/MS. Double penalty to Swim skill.

You can also look on your skills page. Then take off the armor. Put it on, and notice the difference.

Blue Shine and Silent Moves can come on any armor I think.

But youe evasion feat only works when you are wearing Light or no armor.

Too good to ignore. If you have evasion, you shouls never wear any heavier Armor IMO.

Like Talon said, stick to light armor. You don't want to lose evasion.

I believe Silent Moves falls on everything right up to full plate.

Stick to light armor for your evasion though. You can find "medium" armors like breastplates & chainmail in mithral or darkleaf versions that will be light.
