[Blacksmithing] Plate armor

when I first started playing UO people loved plate mail because it looked cool. Then we all realized it was a huge stamina drain when out running monsters.

It seems like characters have gone back no to plate mail to guard their stamina drain from harder hitting monsters.....was there a change in game mechanics or is this just the newest fad?

Platemail offers more stamina protection if thats what you mean?

That is precisely what I am referring to...forgive me if I used the wrong terminology.....but I will repeat the question, is this the result of a change in mechanics or a new flavour of the week?

10 years ago plate was avoided because it sucked your stamina dry and left you walking slowly. now it is used to protect your stamina....what changed?

That is exactly what I was hoping to see.....thank you. Sometimes when you drift away from stratics or UO you lost important updates
