            ---- Animalistic Spirit Armor ----

General Script Information

   This is armor with the spirit of an animal trapped within it.
   The spirit is wild and must be tamed by unleashing attacks against like-level foes, or successfully evading them during combat.
   If not fully tame, the spirit within can backlash upon the owner.
   Allegiance can be changed, but the new owner must work off the trust gained by the previous owner.
   When the wearer is hit, the armor has a chance to unleash Animalistic Instinct, which can knockdown the attacker and disorient them momentarily.
   If used with an Animalistic Spirit weapon or shield, there is a chance the armor will call for aid and also add the weapon/shield's Animalistic Fury flares to the response.

Alteration Guidelines

   * Alterations to the 15/15/15, long and show of this armor are fine.
   * Any merchant can change the associated Armor Accents to match the alteration.
   * Some merchants can change the spirit color, spirit call, spirit group, or how the spirit looks.

NOTE: You cannot change the general type of animal, such as changing a large feline to be a canine, except using certificates. As well, each spirit type only has certain pre-approved nouns allowed.

Features

     If you wield an Animalistic Spirit weapon or shield with Revenge unlocked, there is a chance the armor will call for aid to add Animalistic Fury flares.
   * Bestial Barrier = Unlocked
     When Animalistic Instinct flares hit, the spirit within shares some of its strength to defend you, causing an increase to your DS for 30 seconds or until the next attack.
     NOTE: Power of this ability is tied to the Flare tier.
   * Feral Whirlwind = Unlocked
     Once an hour, direct the spirit within to unleash Animalistic Instinct flares against 3 to 5 creatures in the room in a single sonic attack by STOMPing the jazerant.

   * Untamed Vitality = Unlocked (Health, Mana, and Stamina Recovery)
