Hi, I still am confused what is the difference between armor and resist in the game . I love to learn new things everyday so I would love it if someone could reply . I never have known the difference, but I am sure some pirates in the Spiral know it.

Thanks everyone!

Hiya.

Armor is for melee damage- the more armor, the less damage taken from a melee attack. A buccaneer has lots of armor but not a lot of resist because they are made for melee attacking.

Resist is for magical damage, say, from a witchdoctor or such. Witchdoctors have lots of resist but not lots of armor because they are made for pretty spooky magical attacks.

I hope that helped!

See you in the spiral!

Thanks Steampunkered! I meant to ask what is the difference between armor and "base armor". You are absolutely right though! Thanks for responding to my post.

I don't believe there is one for all intents and purposes. I have never found out the reason that base is put in front of "weapon power", "resist" and "armor" that actually effects the game.
