Yeah, we worked a lot on that perk already, but we’ll adjust it further. Just like you mentioned, the idea was to make medium armor builds viable (Barbute and Noble mail have been added to support this style specifically).
It will take a little while, but we are definitely on the case.
Glad to hear you aware of this issue! )
Good luck on polishing the game. BB is fantastic, the best game i’ve played maybe in last decade.
