D1 Body Armor

From Diablo 2 Wiki

Basic body armor stats for Diablo and Hellfire.

Body Armor

Armor can be divided into three types, light, medium, and plate. All armors of each type look the same on your character, but changing between the types will give your character a new look. Changing your helm or shield does not affect your character's look; just the body armor. Armor types are purely cosmetic in Diablo/Hellfire; they do not slow your movement speed or cause greater stamina drain or any of the added weight penalties you see in Diablo 2.

  • Light Armor: Rags, cape, cloak, robe, quilted armor, leather armor, hard leather armor, studded leather armor.
  • Medium Armor: Ring mail, chain mail, scale mail, splint mail.
  • Heavy/Plate Armor: Breast Plate, Plate Mail, Field Plate, Gothic Plate, Full Plate Mail.
