In Salt, the player needs to be protected to be able to face certain enemies besides dodging and blocking an enemie attack. Armor provides both physical armoring and gives the player attributes and stats if wearing the right type of armor. No types of armor are the same in Salt, as they all provide different attributes, effects, and stats, as well as looking different and can either be only crafted or obtained by looting.
In this page, you as the player of Salt is here for information, and we will be as specific about the topic as we can to help you survive the dangers in Salt, both in broad daylight and in the blackness of the night.
Basic Information Edit
The player has a base Health of 60. This can be increased temporarily with the use of consumables or armor pieces. But even with lots of health, the player will still takes a lot of damage from enemies. Physical Armor is a way to absorb damage dealt by enemies.
If the player has a total of 10 physical armor, then that armor absorbs that amount of damage taken.
Examples of damage absorption Edit
Scenario: Player has e.g. 10 Physical armor in total and is hit by a pirate who does 14 damage (HP) to the player in one hit.
- Armor takes 10 Hit points
- 4 Hit points damage the player.
Scenario: Player has e.g. 10 Physical armor in total and is hit by a pirate who does 9 damage (HP) to the player in one hit.
- Armor takes 10 Hit Points
- Additional 2 Hit Points automaticly added to damage the player by at least 1 Hit Point.
The last scenario shows that no matter how high your amount of physical armor is, you will always take at least 1 damage per hit.
Those scenarios were tested, checked and confirmed by Yngve90.
Types of Armor Edit
Salt has tons of variations when it comes to combining types of armor. All armor types are made specific for different parts of the body:
- Right Hand (usually where tools and weapons are equipped)
- Left Hand (for scepters and other special items)
- Other (Eyepatches, quiver, etc.)
For each slots, the player can only equip one piece of armor. For example, if the player equips e.g. a type of head armor and have already another head armor equipped, then the selected head armor will replace the existing one. Only the items in the "Other" category can be equipped without replacing other parts of this same category.
On this wiki, we decided to create a category for each slots. By clicking on the blue links, you will be able to see all the available pieces of armor that can be equipped in that slot. Futhermore, we also made a distinction between the primary armor (Head, Chest, Legs and Foots) and the Outerwear equipment (all the rest, except both hands).
Armor Set Edit
Some armors will give you bonuses if you manage to acquire a set number of pieces of the same set. The bonuses provided are sometimes quite unique, like the ability to loot certain items or sail faster. You can see all the pieces that are part of a set here.
