Armor User is the skill related to the wearing of armor in combat. Dwarves with this skill will be slowed by heavy armor less than usual, in proportion to the skill level. Armor user skill is gained when a dwarf wearing armor is successfully hit in combat, either sparring or in the field, wrestling or with a weapon.

The armor user skill reduces the effective weight of all items that are worn but not any items inside a worn object (like the items carried in a backpack). It has no effect at Novice level, but at <nolabel> level, it decreases the weight of worn items by 3/16ths. Each additional level of skill decreases the weight of items by another 1/16th, up to a maximum of 16/16ths if a creature is a legendary armor user.
