Default Armor Defense

Reading under the combat section (page 77), I read that armor piercing (arrows, in this case) and halve the Protection of the targeted unit. Armor-negating is described as armor offers no protection at all.

I was wondering if anyone else found another description in the manual someplace or if this is the only place it is listed.

It's true, so where exactly is your problem?

I thought it would be more visible - i.e. in a list of terminology or such. It was kind of buried. Just wanted to make sure I had it right. I guess I do.

EDIT: I had been trying to find the definitions for a while and stumbled upon this passage.

I might be wrong but holding the mouse over the ap/an effect in a weapons description may tell you aswell (as it does with lifedrain ect)

Most of my time is spent reading the manual, because I can read it at work! When I am playing at home, I am busy trying to conquer the world!!!
