or, you know, someone who gives a **** about expensive-ass armor that took his peasants a month's worth of harvest

Or, you know, a knight that is just so badass he kills his opponents before they even get to touch him.

I remember when I was in grade school, we had a person who was an expert on medieval history come in and teach us. She told us a suit of armour was equal in cost back then to a private jet today. I wouldn't be surprised if knights had their armour buffed and polished after every fight.

We were always taught that most knights were in the lower half of society.

But if its shining, it hasnt been tested (aka not worn in battle)
True knights armor would be covered in scratches, dents, dings, dirt, grime, and most of all blood

If armor is still shining, its a knight who doesn't fight (or literally just walked out of the smith shop and its the armors first go, but really, that's once a lifetime)

The ****** knight who get hit all the time usually loses against the dragon, or die during the journey to the princess. I'd rather bet on the knight that isn't so stupid that he just lets hit opponents hit him just because he has armor on.

Obviously he's amazing and never gets hit. There are many ways to block, defend, counter, evade, parry, dodge, etc without having your armor get hit. That's why they have a shield and weapons.

if he never gets hit then why wear armour, he would be lighter without it easier for him to dodge and whatnot.

That's like saying you shouldn't wear a seatbelt because you've never been in an accident before.

why would you leave your armor soaked in blood? it'll just rust even more, and dings and dents impede movement, better bang those out. Armor needs maintenance, gov'na

Have you seen a real set of armor? You dont just bang out those scratches and gashes, and dents remain as scars even when you bang them out. You cant fix real armor 100%, every scratch is permanent and every dent will leave a golfball sized tell

sure, but nonetheless you need to take care of your armor as much as possible, hell war was for traditionally for the high echelon back in ancient greece given it cost so much. So you make sure to polish off the rust and such (also as a passing thought it's a life-saver against tetanus). A knight in shining armor doesn't mean a knight in unused armor

Naw, the armor was too expensive and too prone to rust for anyone to just not care.
