    Rift Armor Types - Class specific?

    Helllo guys,

    I'm a bit of a total newbie when it comes to Rift and I have a quick question.

    I have been trying to find some info on how armor works in Rift.

    I have a cleric and I know he can use chain armor. Should I aim to go only for chain items (pretty much like how WoW has a penalty if you are wearing something else) or should I just wear the best items available while trying to have as much chain as possible?

    Many thanks for the help!

    Stick to chain gear. Leather/plate will be 100% useless for you (you don't use strength/dexterity), and cloth is generally far less useful due to the focus on intellect over wisdom.

    Warrior - Plate(has strength as main stat)
    Cleric - Chain(has wisdom as main stat)
    Rogue - Leather(has dexterity as main stat)
    Mage - Cloth(has intellect as main stat)

    So stick to chain armour as a Cleric

    Well if you get a cloth item with more stats on it, there is no penalty for using it. But as ppl said, often chain is better, cuase of the higher wisdom

    It actually have a far faster system called Wardrobe. All you do is that you go to the tab and put the item you want to look like in its respective slot and boom, it will look like that, or disable pieces and they won't show
    Also you can dye it

    Blame the right people please, your fellow players.

    and can store multiple wardrobe sets. I have 4 that I switvh between, but you can have a lot more than that.

    Also, the only thing that you cannot use the Wardrobe for is weapons. Those do have a transmog like feature though.
