At first glance, this armor may not be seen to be as good as certain other alternatives, such as the Golem Garments; it trades all the ATT stats from Golem Garments for equal DEX and trades off 4 DEF and 2 VIT for a meager 3 SPD. However, this armor’s ability, “Green Thumb,” gives the player a +10 DEX boost, giving this armor the highest potential DPS boost that a light armor could give, even beating out the Hirejou Tenne in offensive stats by 2. Given the requirement being for the player to be taking damage, along with the rather unpredictable nature of when the armor’s buffs activate, this armor is a rather powerful middle option between the Golem Garments and Hirejou Tenne that drops from a more accessible source.
