Hi there, I am confused about the stats on a peace of gear. The Ivory Lotus Cap the stats read +8 armor and +12 base armor. What is armor vs. base armor? whats the difference?
Base Armor is the amount of Armor your Pirate has by default, it's permanent, which means you have your base Armor even after taking gear off, it's the amount Armor you have without the talents and equipment.
Armor is the amount of Armor your Pirate has via equipped items or talents, talents permanently increase your Armor but do not count towards base Armor, whilst equipped items only increase your Armor so long as they are equipped to your character, if you take the item off, you will lose the amount of Armor given to you by that weapon.
