Clothes and Armor

There are many different types of clothes and equipment to cover adventurers from head to toe. In the cloakroom there are lined jackets, light stuffed shoes, leather armor, hoods, silk robes, armor gloves, feathered hunting hats, belts and many more goods. Real heroes can also equip themselves with countless different types of armor from the four categories; cloth, leather, chain ring and metal ring. Everybody should find something that fits them. But when it comes to the choice of armor it’s not all about fashion. While heavy plate armor offers good protection against physical attacks it’s easier to avoid magical attacks with lighter robes.

Again and again there are armor sets which are not only optically harmonized but also award more bonuses the more parts of that armor set you are wearing.

In Runes of Magic players can customize and change the coloring according to their own wishes. Therefore every character has the possibility to impress the population of Taborea through their clothing and equipment.
