Overview

Armors now have leans or an affinity toward offensive or defensive stats. offensive leans increase damage dealt and taken while defensive armors do the exact opposite.

As a rule it is best to go as heavily into the lean as possible preferring fully offensive over mid-offensive as an example.

  • Neutral - x1.0 damage dealt, x1.0 damage taken
  • Mid-Offensive - x1.125 damage dealt, x1.125 damage taken
  • Fully Offensive - x1.25 damage dealt, x1.25 damage taken
  • Mid-Defensive - x0.9 damage dealt, x0.9 damage taken
  • Fully Defensive - x0.8 damage dealt, x0.8 damage taken
  • Spellcaster - x0.8 damage dealt, x1.25 damage taken

Neutral Lean

Neutral armors are the baseline as a comparison for armor leans. They have no special quirks toward damage or defense being a middle ground that is rarely used.

Offensive Leans

Offensive leans are the preferred armor type for a majority of players. They increase both the damage dealt and taken in order to allow a quicker playstyle which promotes a "Kill him before he kills me" mentality.

Due to this mentality and playstyle, fully offensive is greatly preferred due to the damage multiplier on the armor being larger while damage taken is largely ignored when players can kill monsters without ever being attacked.

Spellcaster Lean

This is a mostly-defunct armor type which decreases damage dealt and increases damage taken in order to boost a mages spells in some way.

You may run into older armors using this system, but they are rarely worth using.

Pre-Lean

Pre-Lean Armors are armors that had offensive or defensive properties before the Lean system was fully implemented.

These armors typically have a fully offensive boost to damage or a fully defensive boost to defense while not receiving the associated downside with those specific armor types.

Pre-Lean is hard to recognize as the armor has no indicator in-game and often appears to be a neutral armor at first glance.
