I am only Level 7 with my Orc Dragonknight, but I have already hit the soft cap for armor:

Now I can morph an ability to an extended version, which would grant me even more armor on activation:

My question is if that additional armor would be reduced by the softcap and if you hit this said softcap that easy on max level too.


Of course. All effects should be affected by soft caps (unless stated otherwise; so it's less effective since you're already at the cap).

I think this variant is a lot more interesting if you're not relying on heavy armor (i.e. if you're wearing a possible mix or maybe even only light/medium armor).

  • Do you know if you have hit the softcap on V1 too if you have 7 pcs of Heavy Armor? – BadSnowflake Apr 25 '14 at 8:30
  • No idea, I'm wearing a full set of medium armor on a Nightblade. :) – Mario Apr 25 '14 at 12:53
  • If the armor is traited to give armor you can cap it pretty easily. At veteran ranks I mean – Paralytic Apr 25 '14 at 16:33
  • @Assylum With heavy armor absolutly yes. – Joe Scylla Jun 3 '14 at 10:36
