|Soldiers can wear matching sets of armor to greatly increase their overall absorb. Instead of taking only the highest absorb, as is normally the case, it will take the highest absorb plus a bonus of one 1 for each additional piece in the set.|
The catch is that any items which are worn that do not match will break the set, and there will be no bonus. The exception to this are about body items (cloaks etc) and some items which are generic, such as the ruby psygem. Soldiers will be able to tell which armor goes with what set and whether or not a piece of armor is generic through lore.
