This is an Alien Gear item.
When put at critically low health, you’ll be rendered invulnerable for a short time. It’s not the most practical effect, but this armor giving you more reaction time to back off or escape to the Nexus can still be a godsend in extremely tight situations. Note that this proc is typically outclassed by the Royal Guard’s Cuirass. Not only can you activate the Cuirass even outside of dangerous HP thresholds, but it has a dramatically lower cooldown (though this item’s automatic activation should be more useful at saving you).
However, the armor’s most important benefit is being a part of the Alien Gear sets. When worn with any Alien Core, the resulting set bonus will provide a significant stat boost, depending on the core worn. With an Alien Weapon and/or stronger cores added in, the set bonus will get even more powerful. So, if you have the rest of a compatible Alien Set available, the completion of the set bonus usually outweighs this armor’s middling stats
Before Exalt Version 126.96.36.199 (Mar 2022), all Alien Armor’s reactive procs would trigger when taking damage below 75 HP.
