At Journeyman, armor degrades 50% slower.

At Expert, EQUIPPED armor loses half of its weight, letting you move faster and carry more.

At Master, EQUIPPED armor weighs nothing

[edit] Training

You gain 1.25 experience points for every hit you take while wearing heavy armor.

  • The easiest way to train is to simply let enemies hit you while wearing heavy armor. Put the difficulty slider down to it's lowest level, get a good Restoration spell to hand and you can let enemies hit you over and over for as long as you like.
  • Find a decent summoning spell. Use it and attack your summoned monster three times(preferably with the weakest weapon available you can find, so you don't kill it) and then let it hit away at you while you take it's attacks. If you've completed the Recommendation quests in the Mages Guild then you should create a custom summoning spell with the weakest magnitude but the longest duration. This is good for Conjuration training as well.
