All About Armor -

The Star Wars Galaxies official site has been updated with an article spotlighting armor and its qualities in the Star Wars Universe.

Assault armor, usually worn by Bounty Hunters and Commandos, protects against kinetic damage well. However, this armor is more susceptible to energy damage. Assault armor also has an increased resistance to fire and acid damage over time.

Battle armor provides an even protection against all damage types. Battle armor is typically worn by officers and spies, who benefit from the lack of penalties as well as the increased resistance to poison and energy damage over time effects.

Reconnaissance armor, commonly donned by medics and smugglers, offers the best protection against energy damage with a small bonus to energy protection and a minor penalty to kinetic damage protection. Bleeding and disease damage over time effects are also reduced by this armor type.

The Jedi wear no armor, instead choosing to be clothed in simple robes. Traders and entertainers typically do not wear armor but seasoned professionals have the ability to equip it. These entrepreneurs tend to hire bodyguards during their travels across the galaxy, although the bravest choose to receive special training that will improve their expertise in combat and defense.
