So me and also my group have simply left 3.0 to go over to 5e. And in 3.0 tright here is natural armor, normal armor, dex armor and 2-3 more.So my DM claims that because tright here is only +# AC in 5e, suggests that you cannot stack it together. Like a studded leather armor, plus mage armor wouldn"t stack.And it doesn"t sound appropriate to me though. Since why would certainly mage armor and also shield not stack? Shield would certainly LARGELY shed it"s power in my opinion. It would be usemuch less but.... erh.So I"m hoping someone here deserve to aid us clarify this difficulty. ^^

You have the right to just use one AC calculation at a time (e.g. armor, Unarmored Defense, Mage Armor, Draconic Resilience, Natural Armor.) You deserve to stack boundless bonprovides on top of that as long as they"re not from two of the very same spell, magic item, or any various other game attribute through the exact same name.

You watching: Does mage armor stack with natural armor

You can incorporate Mage Armor via a shield or the Shield spell, yet not with Draconic Resilience or Unarmored Defense.

So if I have actually studded leather armor on and also I usage mage armor, but I can not use shield? But I can use mage armor, while wearing simple clothes, and then height it off through shield?Or carry out I need to obtain different bonuses from various spell lists. So if I was a sorcerer and also a cleric I could usage chain shirt armor, while having shield of faith, AND peak it off through mage armor.It"s greatly because that bladesingers gain their int modifier to their AC. And they become proficient in light armor. So does that expect that they do not benefit from mage armor while their blade song is active?

Sorry if it"s as well confutilizing. I"m really perplexed myself! xD

You have the right to acquire AC easily in the 30-50s in other editions consisting of Pathfinder. I think 22 AC isn’t crazy in relation yet within the current 5e it’s pretty tough to beat.

Good allude. I"m not super-worried about what happens at level 18+, though. That appears like more of a theoretical concern.

So I am attempting to transform a few of our personalities from Pathfinder to 5E, I have most of the fundamental stuff sorted yet some of the magical stuff I am making by modifying an currently existing item.

See more: Wow Investigate The Alchemist Shop, Investigate The Alchemist Shop

On one character they had actually a Ring of Protection +2 ( Used a RoP +1 and also edited the AC and that appears to work-related fine ) next up was the Elven Chain Mail +2. This was tradition from Pathfinder and it enabled full Dex Mod and Stealth Check None. So I did the edits however I am only seeing a readjust of 1 to AC once I equip and unequip it.

If whatever was edited effectively would the device permit the stacking of the +2 from The ring AND the Armor or is that a adjust in the device on bonuses ?

Thanks

-Robert
