    Armor weight question

    Does the weight of the armor (Light - Medium - Heavy) effect the running speed of the character or only the stamina? Says on Arreat that "Heavier armor depletes your stamina more quickly" but i see nothing about the velocity.

    Since 80+ chars have lots of stamina i see no reason to care about it in any way if the speed isnt different. Obviously though the lighter armor require less strength but except that.

    Again, will my char run a little slower with a hellforge plate compared to a Archon plate?

    yes, it's slows down run speed, not much but myself I'll still always go for the light armour if I have a choise.

    Atleast as far as I've been informed :azn:

    I've heard that too but I'm not sure if it isn't from myself, I think I have just assumed it. I mean it should say something about it on Arreat. Does anyone know for sure?

    It's something like -5% for mediums and -10% for heavies. Shields come in three weights too.

    Never heared that shields would matter, sure about that?

    Yeah, I think shield weight has the same effect as armor weight. I'm always wondering if shield weight has anything to do with block rate or cast rate, because based on the animation, you need to lift the shield to block or cast:smiley:.
