Baldur’s Gate 3 Armors

There are various ways to acquire armor in Baldur’s Gate 3. You’ll be getting most of your armor as rewards for finishing quests.

You can also buy it from merchants, get it as a drop from enemies, or loot it from certain locations.

Not only do the armor pieces in Baldur’s Gate 3 grant the player additional defense, they also provide the player with different modifiers and effects which benefit the stats of the player.

Furthermore, each armor piece has a certain ‘Proficiency’, which needs to be unlocked to function. Before you take a look at the armor pieces, you should learn about the different proficiencies first.

Unlocking the proficiency will stop your attacks from suffering from any disadvantages while you’re wearing the armor piece, and your spell-casting abilities will also not be impeded.
