I apologize if this has already been answered, but I couldn't find anything on it.

Do the "Favors:" labels on armor have any bearing on anything at all?

At this point all there is to say is: Probably.

SE likes to make the players "discover" things for themselves so they add copious amounts of hidden effects. For everything. EVERYTHING!

It beta it seemed like around a 25% penalty for not wearing something made for your class. No idea in retail, haven't touched anything not made for me.

You get penalized points but cant readily tell unless you pay attention. For instance, I was leatherworker and equipped a hat that was favored for classes besides mine. The hats stats were 16 defense and when I equipped it I only got about 12 from it, and I was higher than the optimal rank for the hat (optimal rank only affects stats if you're lower than that rank).

So I only got 12 instead of the full 16 (which I couldn't tell I was being penalized on the armor but had to add it up myself when I equipped the hat).

I put on the sheepskin harness as a lancer, and it only gives 1 dex instead of 2. To check if this was level or class (because I was under 13), I put it on my level 1 pugilist, and I got 2 dex.
