Chain armour smithing
Chain armour provides 55% damage reduction at 100ql. The wearer will walk moderately slower and have a moderately slower attack speed. Chain armor offers a defense bonus vs. stabbing damage, while the equipment itself receives extra damage from stabbing. A full chain set weighs 8.20kg and will slow you to 13.90km/h on cobblestone when worn.
