As the description suggests, this armor is incredibly unique. It provides a staggering +30 VIT along with an additional +80 HP, but unlike any other heavy armor, this armor offers no defense bonus. Donning this armor will leave every melee class (except for Knight) with less defense than a robe class.
This armor’s primary appeal is the 1.2 second decrease of the in-combat timer due to the VIT boost. With the substancial loss of defense, many more bullets will send you in combat. However, in end-game dungeons like The Void or Oryx’s Sanctuary, where most bullets deal hundreds of damage anyway, vitality may be more useful in keeping your HP topped up. This effect becomes stronger as your pet’s healing level increases.
Note that this armor’s 80 HP boost is doubled by the Breastplate of New Life, with the latter also giving 14 DEF. If you don’t have New Life, this armor can see utility in some end-game dungeons as a swapout - but should never be worn in the realm over even tiered armors.
Note that the mushrooms in the Dwarf Miner event can no longer drop this armor.
Before Patch X.33.1.0 (May 2020), this item had a Feed Power of 850.
Before Exalt Version 188.8.131.52 (Sep 2020), this item gave +60 VIT and was able to be dropped by the large mushrooms in the Dwarf Miner event.
