Armor Class (AC)

An individual's AC is a number that represents how well it avoids being wounded from a melee attack, ranged attack, or spell that requires an attack roll. The higher the AC, the better.

AC measures both toughness (a sword strikes but fails to penetrate your armor) and agility (you dodge the swing of a sword). 

You successfully hit your foe if your attack roll, with all modifiers  the foe's AC. 

Certain armor limits or prevents application of a Dex. modifier to AC. See the Armor Table.
