Tier 2 Automatic Symbol of Need upon death
Passive +10 sheer fear resist against undead (about the strength of Dauntless (1606))
Tier 3 Phantom critical padding
Ability to locate nearby undead
Tier 4 Additional +10 sheer fear
2x/day Symbol of Return usable while stunned/immobilized/webbed

Analyze

You analyze your <ARMOR> and sense that the item is largely free from merchant alteration restrictions.

The creator has also provided the following information:

This armor has been designed to provide mechanical benefit to members of the Order of Voln.  Some FLUFF verb traps are available to non-members, but unique abilties are bestowed ONLY on members.  Due to its nature, the <ARMOR> will repel anyone converted to Luukos who attempts to touch it, as well as preventing usage to anyone wearing or holding Shadow Death, Black Ora Jewelry, or Rapture Cloak items.  Furthermore, it CANNOT be ensorcelled, which is by design.

The <ARMOR> is currently TIER 4 which contributes 15 Gear Points to the armor, and has the following options available:

 NON-VOLN, and VOLN MEMBERS 
Fluff:  BOW, TAP, STARE, CLUTCH, and KNEEL
