Armor in Black Desert is not class specific and can be shared and used by all classes interchangeably. Weapons and secondary weapons however are class specific (aside from a few that are interchangeable). Equipment is a crucial part to leveling progression in game that directly impacts your defense, endurance, speed and dodge.
Weapons, Helmets, Chest Pieces, Gloves, Boots as well as accessories have durability that decrease over usage.
