But it is hard to use the bathroom in Plate Armor

When most people see a Knight in full plate armor the first thing they usually think is, "COOOL!" But not you. Not any more at least. Because the next time you look at a Knight you are going to think, "Oh man, how hard is it to go to the bathroom in that?" It takes around 10 minutes for a squire to properly strap the chest piece, arms, shoulders and legs on you. So... answering the call to become a Paladin? Easy. Answering nature's call? Well, think about your evil undead foes, not... waterfalls. Doing the pee-pee dance in full plate armor is sorta embarrasing.

Lothalis: I thought that's why the Fauld (the metal "skirt") was created?
Artix: Have you ever tried using one of those in a urinal?
Lothalis: ...
Eonaleth: Are you wearing the special pants?
Artix: ?
Eonaleth: I learned about it when I was in England! How do you not know about the special pants!?
Artix: *changing subject abruptly* ...when you go to wash your hands the gauntlets rust.
Lothalis: This is exactly why I became a Witch.
Lothalis: Wait... now I am a Defender so I get to see first hand. #UpgradeClassProblem

ben14715: There is a early version of the Plate armor where the crouch plate has a hinge and a hook to lock and unlock and going to the bathroom. You Obviously have the version 0.5, you want the 2.0 with the new Crouch plate, You can get the Upgrade at any local iblacksmith's,just look for Their logo, an eye surrounded by swords.

Saber1234: Ok you are right. Artix's opinion on Armour is true. you cannot go to the bathroom in a battle armour or a cosplay outfit. XD It takes a lot of time to suit up and then to unsuit. So I know the feeling. haha

ben14715: Artix, Might Like this. Well It`s one of the many duties that we have manage when wearing a suit of armor, When you get more hope in making it to the end your duties may get heavier as the Journey continues....

Eonaleth
Eonaleth: I just wanted to add in my defense that we did have a lengthy discussion about how toilets we're completely different during the medieval ages and that you only see part of my response to what Lothalis was saying and Artix was busy during the time I post but it was fun having this discussion. You have anymore questions I'll be glad to tell but not completely and Artix friend thanks for letting us share our opinions :)

icefang5: Hehehe lucky me for I CHANGE CLASSES and ARMORS so I could change into lightweight flexible armor (like rugged thief)or change into healer robes(new thought[wouldn't the robe front keep falling while I am on the toilet/using the urinal])so I am glad I could switch classes. Also I am kinda sorry for you and your predicament artix ):

Shadow Ravena: Ya, I ran into that issue at DC since I have full plate mail. I got around by frankly not drinking anything before I wore the armor. Yes, dehydrated, but no unsuiting!
