Dark Alliance II | Inventory | Armor

There are many types of armor you can find or purchase throughout Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance II. All of the armor you find is random, and not all characters can equip all types of armor right from the start. In addition, the Monk has the advantage of using enchanted gloves as weaponry as well. Magical properties on randomly found armor is rare and often requires the player to create the enchanted piece of equipment him/herself.
