Armor Specializations consists of service and utility abilities that can be applied to a suit of armor by a warrior, rogue, or paladin. An additional specialization released in 2020, Light Armor Mastery, is available to warriors, rogues, and monks.

All armor specializations are considered passive buffs in the Player System Manager. Within the armor specializations, there are two types: damage and general.

Damage specializations require specialized armor fittings from the Warrior Guild that must be applied to the armor to be protected. The fittings will last for a specific number of hits. To remove the protection earlier, ARMOR <specialization> REMOVE will remove any fittings currently on the armor, not just the specialization that the warrior is trained for (the warrior must have at least 1 rank of any of the damage specializations however).

General specializations can be applied directly to armor without the need for extra parts. It can also be applied to armor currently being worn by others. The duration for all general specializations is 4 hours, or until the armor is removed. This duration can be refreshed.

Only one specialization from each category can be used at one time.
