Other skill lines in Armor : Light Armor and Medium Armor

The Heavy Armor skill-line is part of the "Armor" category in the Elder Scrolls Online. The Heavy Armor skill-line has one active skill that you can activate during combat, with the requirement that you have at least 5 Heavy Armor pieces equipped. The Heavy Armor skill-line also has passives, some require you to wear several Heavy Armor pieces, some already give you benefits from only wearing one Heavy Armor piece.

How do you unlock the Heavy Armor skill-line?


The Heavy Armor skill-line is granted to you after equipping at least 3 Heavy Armor pieces that you can either buy or loot from dead monsters. When you only equip one Heavy Armor piece, the skill line won't show up yet but you already gain experience towards the Heavy Armor skill-line.

How do you level up the Heavy Armor skill-line?


To level up the Heavy Armor skill-line in the Elder Scrolls Online you have to at least equip one Heavy Armor piece on your character. The Heavy Armor skill-line will level up faster if you wear more Heavy Armor pieces. Reading books from bookshelves in the Elder Scrolls Online can also sometimes increase your level in the Heavy Armor skill-line.

The numbers of the skill that you see below are used for comparison. The numbers are based on a naked level 50 character without any skills, passives, attributes and champion points allocated. Your damage numbers will change depending on what gear, skills, attributes, champion points, enchantments or buffs your character has.
