I have a feeling that I’am totally misunderstood :) I’am not against fact that heavy armour should decrease Stamina, I’m against fact that it decrease it way to much. There is significant fatigue increase from mail shirt to heavier armour, I think that heavier armour should decrease your stamina but lighter than now plus it should decrease other statistics like defense and movement. Now Stamina is to important, in my solution it could be a little less important.

I can kind of agree that up from chainmail you universally have to invest in stamina and it feels really restrictive in regards to abilities and such, but I don’t find armor better than chainmail (plate, scale, etc.) to be a problem, because they’re supposed to over superior protection in exchange for superior fatigue issues (that can be alleviated through perks). Making plate armor weight less than chainmail would be really stupid from a design standpoint…
