So I was checking out Armor that would be 18 Gauge, but made out of titanium. I know aluminum chain mail takes a hit for it's rating, so I was curious if it would be the same for Titanium even though it has the same durability as steel.
I suppose that a follow up question would be, "Would Titanium be given an exception to that rule due to the quality and cost of the metal?"

The relevant rule you're looking for is

"Metal plates must be at least .0478 inches thick. (18 gauge or thicker for ferrous metals, 16 gauge or thicker for non-ferrous metals). All edges of metal plates should be safely blunted or rolled."

Titanium and aluminum fall into the non-ferrous category, so you'll want 16 gauge (slightly thicker, still much lighter than steel).

I'm not aware of an IG nerf on protection points for going titanium vs. steel so I'll leave that part of your question for someone more versed in the rules side. I believe it's usually only when the game is flooded with the lighter material that they consider nerfing it. Aluminum chain I believe is nerfed but aluminum plate hasn't been (yet). I have a coat of plates project with 16 gauge aluminum plate I'm hoping to complete before it becomes too prevalent :D/>

Yeah Titanium is legal. No we don't nerf the armor value. The price + scarcity mean we don't really care.

We nerfed the aluminum chain shirts because they weigh nothing and were cheaper than beer.

Once the armor comes in early August, I might have it with me for the August Event and will get some pics taken.
