Base AC (Armor Class) in DnD 5E explained

Armor Class (AC) in Dungeons and Dragons 5e is usually determined by what armor you wear, a feature you may have, or a spell you may be under the effects of. But what if you find yourself without any of those things? Then you have to rely on your base AC, the formula for which is:

Base AC = 10 + Dexterity Modifier

It’s that simple!
