This page contains a list of all the types of body armors in ADOM. Most types of body armor can be generated with prefixes and suffixes. Body armor is worn underneath girdles, which means that a cursed girdle prevents equipping or unequipping body armor.

While equipped, body armor made out of iron causes 4 points of damage per turn to mist elf PCs. Wearing any type of body armor will prevent iron damage from equipped girdles. Iron body armor is marked with a gray background in the list below.

Body armor weighing more than 60s will negate some of Monks' special abilities. Body armor weighing more than 250s will negate all of Duelists' special abilities.

Base stats for all armor have the following format:

(a, b) [x, y]
-or-
[x, y]
  • a — item melee to-hit bonus (applied to all melee attacks when the item is equipped in the correct slot)
  • b — item missile to-hit bonus (applied to all missile attacks when the item is equipped in the correct slot)
  • x — item DV bonus
  • y — item PV bonus

Note that all bonuses can be negative.
