Armour Rating is a gameplay element appearing exclusively in Fable and Fable: The Lost Chapters which dictates how much damage your hero takes. Doubling your Armour Rating will decrease the damage taken by approximately half. Every piece of armour and clothing has an armour rating. The higher your armour rating, the more protection you receive from your armour.

Fable IIEdit

In Fable II armour rating no longer exists as the use of armour has been abolished and has been replaced with clothing. The clothing in Fable II serves no benefits in terms of protection in combat but acts solely for aesthetic purposes.

Fable IIIEdit

In Fable III armour rating still does not exist despite armour making another appearance in the game. They are still present purely for cosmetics.


  • Even having a very high armour rating, you cannot rely on armour alone to protect you in fights; you have to raise your health and Toughness to become more durable in combat.
