Armor (AV)

Your armor value (AV) is a measurement of how well protected you are
against physical attacks that hit you. The higher your score, the less
likely an opponent's attack will do severe damage to you. Most characters

start with a base AV score of 0.

Ten Things You Should Do When You Start to Play

Overview

AV, also called Armor Value or ♦, is a combat-relevant stat which, along with the PV of the incoming attack, determines how much damage an attack does once it has hit its target. Generally, AV acts in opposition to PV, with higher AV decreasing the damage an attack deals and higher PV increasing the damage an attack deals.

A creature or object's AV score is calculated by adding together all of the following values:

  • The AV value of all of the character's equipped armor and mutations (not counting shields).
    • If multiple body parts of the same type exist (eg, Arm), the AV of those slots (not counting shields) will be averaged and rounded, with half-values rounding toward zero.
  • Additional AV from sources such as the Calloused skill, the density effect, or any inherent AV based on creature/object type.
  • The AV value of one equipped shield if the attack is determined to be blocked by that shield.

AV value (not including additional AV from shield block) can also be seen in-game on the sidebar or overlay.
