Will my light armor skills go up wearing robes? I don't see the "light armor" tag on them. I have been wearing robes my whole game and have very low armor skills in every tree.
Robes and other apparel which do not have the armor tags - are not armor. As a consequence, these items:
- do not grant armor skill experience
- do not benefit from armor perks or skill
- do not grant hidden armor rating
You can still get some of these benefits while wearing robes if you wear some armor in other slots (head, feet, hands, shield)
