Armor must be worn to provide any defensive effects. This requires a piece of armor to be placed in the appropriate equipment slot of a pony's inventory. Once worn, the player's statistics will be modified by the armor.
Armor reduces incoming physical damage by a percentage, based on the Armor stat. This is calculated by the formula
Percentage reduction = Armor / (Armor + 165)
Different equipment slots can be filled at the same time with armor pieces made from different materials; they do not have to match to be effective.
A full set of armor consists of five pieces:
- Helmet (occupies the Hat slot)
- Back Plate (occupies the SaddleBag slot)
- Chest Plate (occupies the Shirt slot)
- Front Legs (occupies the FrontShoes slot)
- Back Legs (occupies the BackShoes slot)
Pieces of armor can be made of various materials, identifiable by their color.
