Ill be using medium, partly because it suits what I want, the other part is a silent protest against Oblivion and Skyrim for not featuring it.

Well my answer is - all of them, depending on what I am doing at the particular moment

Really I need to see exactly how the armor system is going to work but probably same as Rage.

In PvE dungeons/AZ I want to have the ability to tank for my party so in that case probably heavy armor but in PvP I will probably wear a combination of both heavy and medium for increased stamina but like I say ,I really need to know how the system works first.

Actually, medium armor from TESO was included in both games. It's called Light Armor.

You see, they renamed Oblivion/Skyrim ligt armor to medium, while moving robes and clothes into light armor category. So no, there still isn't proper medium armor. It's just a word play by ZOS.

Light - mage's robes and clothes, likely containing perks for casting
Medium - Skyrim's Light Armor, the sneak perks are tied to this skill tree
Heavy - Skyrim's Heavy Armor, the "tank" skill tree

Should add an option to have mixed armor. In an interview Maria Aliprando, she said she likes being half medium armor & half heavy armor. Personally, I'm going to be full heavy armor because everyone knows heavy armor looks the coolest. Cute

At the start I will be using medium armor. May try mixing and trying different armor builds maybe after a while though.

its not entirely true tht light armours is cloth and dtuff because there is a light, medium and heavy for each armour like lets say for glass armour, theres a heavy glass, a mediukm glass and a ligh glass.

Well like other stated it depends on what bonuses you are gaining with the certain combinations. In my case i want to be as sneaky as possible. So medium armor will be my choice BUT depending on where the bonuses change like if that 6th piece of medium armor doesnt give me anymore sneak but instead does a slight endurance boost... i would want to trade that piece out for a piece of heavy armor that gives a big health boost and raises my protection because its heavy armor.

One of the interview devs said there are lots of points where you can land the bonuses you want by mixing the armors. think of it as getting the 2 skills you like most out of 3 skill trees instead of just the 6 skills given in 1 skill tree.








Without evil, we would not recognize good.

Remember, true focus lies somewhere between rage and serenity

Yah, I think those who do mixed armor will need to be really good at armorsmithing. Thankfully, I'll be doing this and selling those great armor sets to get loads of money. Cute

There again, I expect there to be some great builds with splitting armors.

Eventually All of them, most of the time several types at same time.

Where is the choice for combination? I'm sure there's benefits to wearing one armor type, but my character will be wearing a mix part of the time in order to level all 3 up at once.
