First and foremost there is no prerequisite for this. Reason being there is nothing really below light armor except for unarmored so and be silly for that to be a prerequisite anyways and this description reads as followed.

You have trained to master the use of light armor, gaining the following benefits: Increase your Strength or Dexterity score by 1, to a maximum of 20. You gain proficiency with light armor.

Fantastic stuff not a whole lot to it, pretty dang simple if you ask me. That being said, let’s take a look at a brief walkthrough. No not a whole lot to dissect here some +1 to strength/Dex that’s pretty good. And you gain light armor which is pretty good as well.

In terms of which one to pick between strength or dex you might want to pick dex the reason being a lot of light armor gets a better AC score for DEX but you’re a strength-based character and you’re close to that modifier bump then it might be worth looking at strength instead. Perfect let’s get to my personal thoughts on it.


It’s gonna be pretty short one today. In terms of who benefits from it you don’t know what i can really think of as the wizard in all honesty just because they really suffer from the lack of tankiness and this would be a good way to kind of get them at the very least, we kind of move through the middle of the line. You know what i mean like they can still take a hit they can still dodge some things. They’re just not as exposed. Outside of that i can’t really imagine a whole lot of other classes would benefit from this.


That being said, if you have any ideas, any character build, any concepts or any comments you’d like to make about lightly armored please put them down in the comments below i really appreciate reading them. I know everyone else checking this article does as well. that being said, i hope you all have a great day and as always happy adventuring.
