64% was my absorption rate for the shield and plate combo over 1000 casts. I keep meaning to run bigger sample sizes, but I'm lazy.

I have yet to see them absorb a bolt spell, but my primary concern was with CS/TD resolutions since my bolt DS is stupidly high most of the time with the 3x shield and tower size. I want to say that they absorb things like directed call swarm, tangle thorn, etc, but I can't remember for certain. When I get bored enough to reactivate, or they fix something I'm interested in, I'll do some more testing.

Being a sunfist member with it is a pain, but if you're Voln or COL it's not so bad. COL signs last so long by the time you can wear it that you can strip down while resting, throw some signs up right before you go out, and then put them back on.

I may have missed it, but it should be known that, wearing kroderine armor, your mana goes to 0/0 and there's no way around it.

That means no Sunfist sigils and no CoL signs, period.

You can spell up before putting on the armor, and have defensive spells cast at you by players when wearing it, though.
