How NW of items affects new players (in General)

I know NW of weapons can hinder minions if they have not matured into them.

What I would like to know is, does this hold true for armour type items. If a newbie gets hold of a HoE +15 will they have the full benefit or will they suffer?

Same with Tattoo's, if the tattoo is above the max do they suffer or just not get the benefit of the tattoo level above the max tattoo?

If it is above the Max Tattoo, it simply acts as though it is exactly at the tattoo. I'm not sure about the armour thing.

The change to how armour NW works - the pr weighting - means that you can put a HoE +15 on a base character, get the full benefit of the bonus with no real impact on PR. Then the amount it affects PR grows as the char grows.

(this may also mean that a base char can have 300 AC as well, but I didn't say that.....)
