Chitin Armor is a mid-tier armor that offers moderate physical protection, but has low protection against cold weather and makes the wearer more susceptible to hot weather. Each piece provides 50 armor, for a total of 250 with a full set.

Crafting[edit | edit source]

The armor is made primarily from Chitin, which can be harvested from

The resource cost for a full set of Chitin Armor is:

82 x Chitin.png Chitin
40 x Hide.png Hide
18 x Fiber.png Fiber

Keratin can not be substituted for Chitin in the crafting recipes.

Usage[edit | edit source]

A full set of Chitin Armor provides 250 armor, 42 cold protection, and -35 heat protection, making it a good armor for early players in combat situations, but difficult to wear normally.

Some players may consider mixing pieces of Chitin Armor with Hide Armor or Cloth Armor to offset the environmental effects while still retaining some armor value.
