Just thought of this recently. So, in Skyrim, you could mix light and heavy armor freely and still gain experience for each (albeit at a slower pace). Will this be the case in ESO, or will you have to wear all light/medium/heavy armor in order to progress in that skill line? The Skyrim way is better (in my opinion), but I'd like to check, if anybody knows.

Don't know for sure, but i'd bet that it'll be similar to skyrim's system. I don't know if it will be proportional to the different amounts of armor you are currently wearing, but there are some skills that suggest this to be the case.


Which is more difficult: To do as you wish? Or to have power and choose not to?

It has been confirmed (multiple of times) that anyone can wear any armour or combination of armour.

I don't believe there is any confirmation about the effected speed based on the number of items you wear for any given type of armour (light/medium/heavy) but since in ESO you level weapon and armour skills up by using them then there is no reason to think you do not level up multiple types of armour when you might have a 5/2 split for example (5 medium, 2 heavy).

A quote about amour leveling up bonuses.
Quote:I want to know how the different armor types will be balanced. Why shouldn’t just anyone wear heavy armor? With advantages will a warrior have wearing light armor? – By Oliver Sieger

Each armor type has a full progression line associated with it. If you advance down the light armor progression line, you are likely to get bonuses to spells, magicka regeneration, and the like. Medium armor skill lines give you more bonuses to stamina activities such as dodge, sneak, etc. Heavy armor skill lines give bonuses to received healing, bracing, etc. And, of course, armor can have magical properties beyond this, and you may wish to mix and match as you see fit.

It is like skyrim but it doesn't level you up faster.
