Spellcasters, such as this Blood Elf
mage, are known for wearing cloth armor. As such, some players call them "clothies." or "squishies" for their low armor value.
Cloth armor is the only type of armor that can be effectively worn by mages, warlocks, and priests. Cloth armor has the lowest armor attribute, below leather armor.
Cloth armor can be produced with the Tailoring profession.
