Skin of Zhor
|A smelly skin of some strange animal, native to cold and distant lands.|
+4 animal skin
The skin of Zhor is a good choice for species which cannot wear most armour and thus have trouble getting resistances. However, rC+++ can be less useful than even rF+, meaning many characters will prefer a mundane robe of fire resistance, robe of resistance, or fire dragon scales over this. However, if you already have adequate fire resistance from other gear (or lack any of the above-mentioned body armours), this can be good to wear on an EV character. It's an excellent choice if you find it in time to explore an Ice Cave.
Prior to 0.14, the Skin of Zhor only provided rC++.
