I am just wondering the benefits between medium and heavy armor...

Would heavy armor give better Armor Class? And at what cost would it give you the better protection..

I am talking statistic wise for this also, not RP :)

There is no really good Medium Armor that I know of. Heavy Armor does give the best armor rating, but high level (Daedric) armor weighs a ton.

Dreugh Armor is medium and it gives a real nice armor rating. The shield alone gives me more than 100 and so does the helmet. If its not iver 100 its still in the high 90's, i cant recall off the top of my head.

I prefer a combination of light and med armor. Heavy armor just weighs to damn much. Sure it has a higher condition but my armorer skills are very high and i can repair all my own stuff in a effcient manner.
My strength is also 98 and i can carry 490. And since i only carry one big ass two handed sword and no heavy armor or sheild theres plenty of room for me to carry loot and treasue back from a dungeuon. Pay me!

That's hardly a full set of complete armor.

Thats why i mix, I get the highest armor i can with the least amount of weight.

Right now i have, Dreugh, ORC, and glass and a few Rare pieces like the boats that make you fly(55k armor rating 106) and a bound curiass that weighs 0, armor rating of 100+ and fortifys all armor skills 5 points......

Not only do i get a high armor rating, I can trained in more than 1 armor class at any given time. HoW bout DeM AppLes?

You can't base an AR on what it does you to. It is going to be way different for everyone.

All classes of armor are good as long as you level yout skill in it.
