|This armor does not deflect projectiles like most materials known to man. It absorbs and engulfs them, sending them to a new plane of reality.|
|On Equip||+24 DEF, -4 SPD|
This armor currently grants the most DEF out of all the leather armors in exchange for a mobility penalty. Because most leather armor classes have an extremely high base SPD stat, spare the Archer and Huntress, this penalty is usually negligible.
Keep in mind, however, that the Hydra Skin Armor gives +5 DEX, so using this armor is essentailly a -5 DEX & -4 SPD penalty in exchange for a +7 DEF boost.
Because of this, only use this armor if you’re willing to take the hit to your DPS in exchange for additional survivability.
Certainly not the best on Archers/Huntresses because of the lack of a high DEX cap; however, it is a godsend to Ninjas and dagger classes where the loss of DPS is usually well worth the ability to stay in combat longer.
This is the only other leather armor with a Fame Bonus of 6% besides the Luxurious Leather Armor.
