Version 0.20: This article is up to date for the latest stable release of Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup.
A coat of armour said to have been forged for Queen Kryia in her old age. She continued to insist on leading her armies from the front even into her dotage, and as her aging body failed her, this coat helped to enhance the healing draughts that kept her alive.

Desirablility

The ability of Kryia's mail coat to double healing from potions is of great use in the early to mid-game, but its utility is far less in the late game or extended. Casters will usually wear something lighter to minimize penalties to spellcasting, and fighters will typically find heavier armour that provides better defenses. Even hybrids will often find armour that simply has better innate resistances. However, for a character lacking in cold resistance or relying heavily on healing as a crutch, Kryia's mail coat is very useful.

History

Kryia's mail coat was introduced in version 0.17.

Prior to 0.20, you could heal from wands and receive the DeviceHeal benefit from that as well.
