    Would the armor take a damage point or would the strike become usless
    And I know it depends on the strike
    But for example
    If I have a neck guard on and someone goes to slit my throat would that be a armor point or would that do nothing but barely scratch my armor or would it go through the armor?

    Bleed out Strikes (All characters now have this, does not need to be put in a slot)
    If a character is stabbed with a knife, shank or other bladed, non-blunt weapon in vital areas, the target goes straight to bleed out. Vital spots include the neck, head, and heart (no touch roleplay for neck and head). You do not need an ability to use this common sense mechanic. Example – Roleplaying slitting someone's throat, stabbing them in the head, stabbing them in the heart (for ease of roleplay and disputes, anatomically all hearts are in the same spot as a humans, just to the left of the center of the breastbone).

    Armor will lose a point, for it is still technically a strike.

    I believe this was supposed to be roleplayed as finding weaknesses in the armour - slitting throats, stabbing someone upwards under their plate armour, or in the weak points normally found in the underarm parts of most armour (for ventilation or ease of movement!)
    Because it was meant as a common sense mechanic - it's only to be used when you would be sneak attacking someone, or putting someone out of their misery who's unconscious.

    Unless i'm thinking of a different skill???

    I'd say find the gap and touch them there with the weapon. I'm with Shdden on this. If it's done and clearly hits armor, it's just a hit on armor. If you don't have to actually find a gap it will get abused and spammed.

    Oh definitely agree on the need to finding a gap... If they don't then yeah, it would be an Armour hit! :)

    Yep, if you are hitting armor. You've hit armor and it's an armor point. Bleed out strikes, like any other strike, need to hit unarmored bits to damage the character rather than the kit.
