After the glowing milky white armor appeared over Michael’s ‘normal’ Nephilim body, his feet immediately started sinking into the grassy dirt. Due to his extremely unbalanced Stats. Without any enhancement of his Agility, the man weighed nearly 500 kilograms or roughly 1100 pounds. This was actually a good thing for Tanks, and something they would usually intentionally do in order to fight against giant monsters more easily. Aside from that, increasing in size through transformative spells typically wouldn’t increase the weight of the Caster. Thus allowing larger Tanks to move more comfortably in their huge forms.

On the other hand, Inari had the opposite situation. Even with her new Equipment Stats, her body was incredibly light, to the point where she would be knocked flying far away from the attacks of a powerful enemy.

Sarah was the third person to put all her ‘clothes’ on. In almost an instant, her entire body was covered by her mostly low-leveled Gear. However, unlike before, she actually received a decent reward for having so many pieces from the same ‘Set’.

Out of the whole group, Michael and Sarah had the most Equipment, but the Nephilim wasn’t nearly as reliant on his Gear for Stats. Even completely naked, he could compete with Magical Beasts at the same Level and Rank pretty easily.

Of course, balance isn’t everything. If an Assassin-type Class like Sarah decided to even out their Strength, Vitality and Endurance with their Agility, then they wouldn’t be too heavy to move, but they certainly wouldn’t be light enough to evade, avoid and outrun their enemies.
Soulbound Equipment wasn’t indestructible, but due to its nature, any damage would be repaired very swiftly outside of combat. Thus, if the Rogue’s Dexterity was high enough, they could actually parry and deflect most attacks, while also using their light weight to avoid taking as much damage overall. Of course, due to the new rules, heavy and light armor or even accessories would give a standard amount of ‘Defense Rating’.
In order for someone to penetrate Sarah’s armor, they would need to deal more than 325 damage in one attack. On the other hand, magical damages circumvented Defense Rating altogether… But there were usually other ways to reduce or even completely avoid magical damage.
Author’s Note: It’s a good thing I banished half the characters out of the story or just doing all these numbers would make me wanna give up… They will be back though. And I’ll wait till the very last moment to go through their shit and fix all their fucked up item descriptions or whatever. By the way, I’ve had to go back and edit things so many times. I still haven’t fixed Chapter 1, where most of the HP, MP, S and regens are wrong.
