Armor refers to items of clothing players can wear which reduces damage taken from physical, fire, frost and lightning damage types. See Damage mechanics for damage mitigation formula.

Capes

All capes provide minimal armor, so the players choice may come down to additional effects, crafting cost, or vanity reasons.
