Why do Pegasus knights wear armor?

I mean... They usually can't take a hit worth s***.

Is it a "armor is useless" trope case?

I think it's mostly just like a uniform.

obviously it's armor designed to repel magic. which explains their res.

well not really.

The low HP def represents the fragility of the pegasus, not the rider.

Why do they retain low def/hp when they reclass? Not used to fighting on foot -> sloppy defensive measures.

Weird how an unarmored Sage can take a hit better than they can...

That's mostly the Pegasus, not the user.

Though they both die, regardless of who actually takes the hit.

Its so they can train their pegasus like Goku. The extra weight gives them a decent workout just by moving :D

Why Sorcs have high Res and Def while they only wear skintight translucent thing?
Why Assassin has pretty low Def and Res when they wear some light armor?

OP tomes, high Res, and skills be damned; I won't use Sorcs.
