Default Question about armor points..

So I'm a lv 23 knight and I just bought a full set of Gladiator gear. Five pieces and each piece gives me 100 armor points. Then I have a shield which gives 95 ..so that totals 595 armor points. Yet on my character screen it only shows that I have 409 armor. And come to think of it I've always had lower armor than what my armor should be giving me. So I'm kind of confused why this is.

Anyone have any ideas? Is it like his for everyone? Are there any high level knights who have a lower armor point rating than what their gear is supposedly giving them?

thank you

That is top secret information.
Sorry.
NGD doesn't do explanations.
That's just not how they roll.

Armor points calculation is a bit strange and the value in the character window is meaningless. The full explanation is here and there's also a calculator here.

Note, this is not NGD official explanation but results of experiments by players.

This is because each part of the armor has a different multiplier, i.e. a chest armor which is where most damage is received and covers most of the body should not protect as well as a leg.

I don't know the reals multipliers, but would be something like this: chest armor (100) x 0.63 = 63 armor, leg armor (100) x 0.30 = 30 armor ... etc, etc

Therefore your total armor will always be lower
