An armor quality, sometimes called an armor special ability, was the name of an enchantment that could be placed on a piece of armor. Pieces of armor enchanted in such a way usually made them more resistant to certain types of damage, enhanced the wearer's abilities, or allowed them to hide or creep easier.
In order to enchant an existing piece of equipment, a versed enchanter had to use a powerful spell during the process. However, not all pieces of armor could be enchanted. Some specific enchantments were limited to the type of material the armor was made from.
