Armour Overview Items:

Unless an armour’s description says otherwise, armour must be worn for its magic to function. Some suits of magic armour specify the type of armour they are, such as chain mail or plate. If a magic armour doesn’t specify its armour type, you may choose the type or determine it randomly.
