I understand it utilizes the max weight your character can handle but does the armor amount change as you lvl up?

The armor rating is a reflection of the armoring, as in th armor mod, you put in it. So as long as you upgrade the armoring in your orange gear as you level up your armor will improve too. Use your planetary comms and get armorings and mods from the vendors on the fleet (or in Quesh's case, on Quesh).There's a similar system for weapons/lightsabers where the hilt or barrell will decide the overall rating of the item.

So if you are asking if the armor will automatically scale the answer is NO. You will have to upgrade it.

As far as I know, it change to the base armor supplied by that armor "weight"

If it didn't, no one would use it.


Make sure you keep your mods up to date.

Yes, it always behaves as the highest weight armor you can wear. If your companions use a different weight then it recalculates every time it's equipped.

The armor value is determined by 2 things:

1) The weight (light, medium, heavy)
2) The rating (it's a number from 1-63 right now). This number is determined by what level armoring you have in the armoring mod slot of the armor (currently armorings come 1-27).

If I go tear a bunch of mods out of high end pvp gear and put it into adaptive armor (or other moddable armor) will they be on equal footing? Can I have the look I want and the stats I want?

yes but you do have to pay the cost of removing mods. I believe if there are set bonus for pvp armor it is attached to the armoring like most of the pve gear.

OMG....awesome info. I am so shopping on the Net tonight for some AA.

Just so I am clear, If i keep the armoring up to date on the worlds i go to through the spec vendors there, I can keep the same look through out the leveling process?
