Medium Armor is a skill in Elder Scrolls Online. It consists largely of leather, hide, and other low-weight armors. As with the other armor skills, there are only passive skills and a single active ability. These skills generally aid stamina-based characters.

Learning[edit]

The Medium Armor skill line is granted the first time you equip 3 pieces of Medium Armor. You can increase your skill by taking or blocking damage while wearing Medium Armor, or earning experience with the Evasion skill slotted. The more pieces you are wearing, the faster your skill will increase. Khajiits are naturally gifted with Medium Armor, and will learn the ability more quickly than other races. In addition, you can earn free levels in the skill line by reading Skill Books, which may be found randomly on bookshelves anywhere. The skill books which increase Medium Armor are:

Skill Perks[edit]

Medium Armor has an associated skill line that is revealed through wearing, and taking damage in, one or more piece(s) of Medium Armor. Known abilities are listed below. Notes
