Here are a few examples of Base AC calculations:

  • No Armour: Base AC = 10 + Dexterity modifier
  • Mage Armour spell: Base AC = 13 + Dexterity modifier
  • Barbarian Unarmoured Defense
    ability: Base AC = 10 + Dexterity modifier + Constitution modifier
  • Monk Unarmoured Defense ability: Base AC = 10 + Dexterity modifier + Wisdom modifier
  • Sorcerer Draconic Resilience ability: Base AC = 13 + Dexterity modifier

There are several ways of further modifying your Armour Class. A few examples of these:

  • Shield: +2 bonus to AC*
  • Shield of Faith spell: +2 bonus to AC
  • Shield spell: +5 bonus to AC
  • Half Cover: +2 bonus to AC
  • Three-Quarters Cover: +5 bonus to AC
  • +1 Armour: +1 bonus to AC
  • Ring of Protection: +1 bonus to AC; requires attunement
  • Bracers of Defense: +3 bonus to AC when not wearing armour or using a shield; requires attunement
  • Arrow Catching Shield: +1 bonus to AC against ranged attacks; requires attunement

There is at least one unusual exception to how AC is calculated:

  • Barkskin spell: Your minimum AC is 16.
