Question regarding Barbarians and dual classing.

So I know Barbarians as a single class are restricted to Splint Mail or lower but was wondering if I dual classing the Barbarian into a Cleric would this allow me to wear heavy armor like a Fighter/Druid can?

    Barbarians are flagged to be unable to dual-class. It's possible to mod it, but no, you wouldn't be able to wear heavy armor even if you could dual. Barbarians actually have serious problems with dual-classing because a large amount of items (e.g. every mage robe) are specifically flagged as unusable by barbarians for no apparent reason, so I wouldn't recommend it.

    Hmm... maybe that's what my old "fix barbarian usability" code was meant to address?
    COPY_EXISTING_REGEXP GLOB ~^.+\.itm$~ ~override~
    PATCH_IF (SOURCE_SIZE > 0x71) BEGIN
    READ_BYTE 0x1f class
    READ_BYTE 0x29 kit
    PATCH_IF (%kit% BAND 0b01000000 = 0b01000000) BEGIN
    PATCH_IF (%class% BAND 0b00001000 = 0b00001000) BEGIN
    WRITE_BYTE 0x29 (%kit% BAND 0b10111111)
    END
    END
    END
    BUT_ONLY

    It's currently disabled because it was causing complications, but I know I wrote it for some reason...

    Out of curiosity, what are the actual usability restrictions meant to be? Maybe worth taking another stab at a fix.

    Hmm, I'm playing the came on Android so I doubt I can mod it. I joined the beta and in the game Barbarian is listed under the Fighter kit so I figured as long as he was human he could dual class just as a regular Fighter can? That's kind of dissapointing that they can't be dual classed. Oh well, thank you for your help.
