Heavy armor is the heaviest form of body protection available in Swords & Potions. While it can be scale, chain, or plate mail, it is always composed of metal and provides maximum protection for the wearer, at the price of increased weight and decreased mobility. It is preferred by fighter class characters, specifically the Barbarian, Berserker, Guard, Knight, Paladin, and Soldier.
All heavy armor requires at least the blacksmith and the tailor to make; some higher-end magical items also need the cooperation of the sorceress, while the lionheart requires all four crafters. In general, you will find pretty consistently high demand for heavy armor throughout the game, which you may have difficulty meeting because of the cooperative requirements for the recipes. Still, the category is unusual in that it has two very high-end recipes (the lionheart and the great armor) which don't require tokens and offer a decent return for their usage of rare materials. As far as token recipes go, the flexible plate offers the best return for rare material usage, as it requires only one dragon's blood but sells for 13420 gold.
