The ability of '''Kryia's mail coat''' to double healing from potions and wands 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.

The ability of Kryia's mail coat to double healing from potions and wands 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.
