Armor Management

Your second best friend against Halcyon's many dangers is your Armor. Without Range Weapons, and when left with only Melee weapons, you'll surely be thankful that you have these at your disposal.

In the Inventory page, you can break down, repair, or drop Armor that you don't need. As with Weapons, you need the Engineering Skill to fix your Armor on your own, or have it repaired at a Vendor.

Weapon stats differ from ranged and melee weapons, but they're basically the same.
