Steel Gauntlets Notes & Tips
Heavy Armor is the most protective form of Armor in ESO. It is ideal for Tanks and anyone wishing to forgo damage for protection. It favors blocking, Spell Resistance and Healing Taken. A full set of Crafted Superior Heavy Armor at VR12 will net you 1963 Armor (without taking into consideration Traits and assuming you have rank III Resolve). That value will be slightly less if your set isn't crafted. This is roughly 225% the value of a full set of Light Armor and 148% the value of a full set of Medium Armor.
