In the videos, I noticed that it was possible for armor to absorb everything in a melee strike.
I was wondering if this is possible for ranged weapons too and how this will work. Will arrows and bolts be able to be completely blocked by plate armor and only inflict damage to exposed areas of the body, like non visored faces, back of the knee and similar stuff or will it just absorb a part of the damage and still get through?
Normally arrows and crossbow bolts should have not enough penetration power to punch through plate armor.
Also will ranged weapons and melee weapons stagger the opponent? If yes, will it happen at a certain amount of damage vs total player health, will it happen always/never, at a specific damage threshold or will it be a different system?
Last but not least, will the player be able to customize different layers of armor, being able to choose mail under plate to cover those exposed tight spots vs melee or rather choose padded cloth to be better protected against archery in those areas?
