Armour is useless

I have masterwork Mongolian armour with 44 points, plus 21 strength.  Still most 2 handers and polearms kill me in one hit.  The only benefit it has is that arrows leave you with a single bar sometimes.  I know the super hero fighters like it, because otherwise their duels would go on forever.  But most people would like a little forgiveness for a bad block.

I have Masterwork Druzhina Mail with 22 strength and 0 ironflesh I have yet to be one shot by anything other than maulers. - I also do not ever get shot down to 1 bar of HP to anything except throwing.

I think bryggans point is that with the buff to levels (35) there was no buff to armor. Seems silly in my opinion.

Strange you seem to forget I'm slower than all but the pure strength maulers due to the fact that my arb weighs more than a tree. Or perhaps you think I can kite more than 30 ft without being run down.

do they hit you in the head mayhaps?
do you have any IF?

Dont jump, gives a lot of speedboost to the enemies attacks afaik. Also dont get clean hits on the head, other than that you shouldnt get one hit killed.

I mean, it's advisable for a hoplite for drop/shoulder their shield when caught in a 1v1 since using a 2d polearm is still usually better. Heck, I carry around a 1h sword and use it with 0 wpf sometimes. Not all builds are built for all situations...
