Vitality is a fabulous stat. People are always talking about their health bar and enemy ar, but I find it more helpful to think in terms of your TOTAL health pool, which is your health bar and all heals. Heavy armor helps soak damage. IE it has high absorption, which tremendously lessens the impact on your total health pool. Ergo, if you take five hits to die with a light set but take seven to die with a heavy set, so long as you manage your heals properly, you are allowed 30 more mistakes in the heavy set than the light set before you see that loading screen. And this doesn’t get into the joy of poise.
