Maxwell's patent armour
|A suit of armour created by the famous inventor Maxwell, providing unparalleled protective qualities at a very affordable price. His unorthodox materials left it with certain shortcomings, but he's yet to have anyone come back for a refund.|
+15 plate armour
Maxwell's patent armour is only worth considering for characters willing to lose access to their spells and the ability to blink or teleport to safety, as it takes far too long to remove it in the middle of a fight. Apart from those very significant downsides, it is otherwise an excellent piece of armour, offering extremely solid physical protection, two excellent elemental resistances, and a little magic resistance on top. Formicid berserkers are unlikely to find a better piece of gear anywhere, but all others are advised to wear it at your own risk.
