Pre U14/MotU medium armor types[edit]

The following table shows the base stats of these armors, which can be a useful reference to see how the various named items are improved upon these stats. (These are the pre U14/MotU medium armors, which still exist in the game, but no longer drop. However, they do still appear in the reward list for some quest chains; see Sources of older armor types.)
