Elven Armor

The official GemStone IV encyclopedia.
Jump to: navigation, search

Through ancient secrets and master craftsmanship, elves have made Elven Armor that more easily allows for spellcraft. This special armor script is only available on armor crafted of eahnor, vaalorn, (these two available off the shelf) or high steel (special releases) and only on studded leather or heavier armors. This armor was released at Duskruin Arena in February 2021 at The Vaalin Rose by GameMaster Oscuro. The messaging was written by GameMaster Valyrka and GameMaster Xynwen.

Additional Information

Script Gear Difficulty Modifier

Elven Armor has an overall script [gear difficulty modifier] which changes based upon the unlock tier. The first tier is -70, the second tier is -140, and both the third and fourth tier have a gear difficulty modifier of -200. This difficulty modifier is reflected in its loresong and would be used as the difficulty for any non-magical player service enhancements. Under magical enhancements, such as Resist Nature (620), Ensorcell (735), and Enchant (925), this difficulty setting is overridden. The first tier is 10, the second tier is 20, the third tier is 30, and the fourth tier is 40. This reflects the Magic Affinity ability unlocked on the off-the-shelf armor which results in a +10 bonus per tier to success rolls for spells cast to improve the armor.
