Note that all stats increase Physical Defense. The higher your soul level is, the less damage you take from basic physical attacks - this does not help you against non-physical damage, however.

Weapons and shields have stat requirements to be used effectively. Armor does not, but most stronger armor is very heavy, necessitating high Vit and End scores to use it effectively.
