Arcane Fortitude is a Mage talent that increases the mage's armor by an amount relative to his intellect.

Mages wear cloth armor, which has significantly lower armor value than other armor types. Mages have only one other way to increase armor, the spell Ice Armor (or Frost Armor for lower-level mages) which increases armor by 930 at max rank. This talent should never be used as a filler talent for Arcane specialized mages who want to take talents deeper in the tree.

The damage mitigation offered by the talent is considered a poor tradeoff when compared to three points in other Arcane talents early in the tree. However, it is one of the few survivability talents available, and may appeal to some mages. For all others, this talent will probably be considered a waste.
