Plate Mail is the second most protective non-magical armor you can buy. It offers an armor class of 3 and nearly all plate mails in the games of Baldur's Gate, Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition, Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn and Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition also offer a -3 bonus to armor class against slashing attacks.
The plate weighs 50 lbs, which means that a character with decent strength loses a quite amount of carrying capacity while wearing it. It requires at least 12 strength to wear plate mail and it can only be worn by fighters, paladins, rangers and clerics.
Where to acquireEdit
