Agathion Auxiliary Stone: Enchant Armor.
Glow on Enchanted tools and armor.
This page will guide you step by step on adding a slot to your weapon or armor. Not all items are socket enchantable. Only those we listed are possible, you can do it by finding Seiyablem in Payon, Morroc, Prontera or Lighthalzen.
It IS a trade-off, you can get the same or near as powerful enchants and much higher armor rating on top of the heavy armor perks. That being said, if you choose NOT to invest in heavy armor, then it is not worth it. Sure you have good armor but it wouldn't be as good as the mage armor in alteration, and if you're not going alteration then the defense is good, but I doubt that you will have much stamina on a mage and you are now suffering carrying that extra weight without the perk to make heavy armor weigh nothing and having little or no boost in carrying capacity.
