Armor Specializations consists of service and utility abilities that can be applied to a suit of armor by a warrior, rogue, or paladin. Each specialization, when active on armor, provides a passive buff that enhances the wearer's defenses in some fashion.

Crush Protection, Puncture Protection, and Slash Protection 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). Only one specialization of these types can be used at a time.

All other specializations can be applied directly to armor without the need for extra parts. They can also be applied to armor currently being worn by others. The duration for all specializations that do not require fittings is 4 hours, or until the armor is removed. This duration can be refreshed. Only one specialization of this type can be active at a time.
