What do the stats on my armor mean?

As with the weapons, durability only affects how long the item will be in the world. Every time an item is repaired, it loses durability.

A bonus on armor is compared with the bonus on the weapon doing the hitting. A bonus on the armor higher than the weapon's means the attacker's chance to hit is reduced.

Armor factor modifies how much damage you take. A higher AF means you'll take less damage overall than you would for a lower AF. Quality also modifies the damage you take - you will take twice as much damage in a 50% quality item as you would in the exact same item with a 100% quality. The condition percentage kicks in next, and further modifies your damage taken.
