Leaf Dragon Hide Armor
Leaf Dragon Hide Armor: Light armor crafted from the hard-as-steel leafy scales of a Leaf Dragon.

Notes:
Before Release 12, the Stat Bonus for this armor was +18 DEF and +6 DEX
On Release 12, all existing leaf armors were transformed into Cheater Light Armors.
On Release 22 all the armors were added again.

This armor is an interesting piece of equipment that, in comparison to the T13 Hydra Skin Armor, sacrifices 4 DEF and all its DEX for 50 HP, 6 SPD, 3 WIS, and 3 VIT, making it a rather situational armor to use. However, it gives a 5% fame bonus upon death, which may be useful for fame farmers that are reluctant to suicide with superior equipment, such as the Coral Silk Armor.

The armor is most useful against situations where your defense is meaningless such as armor piercing attacks or being armor broken, meaning the 50 HP and 6 SPD bonus becomes beneficial. Thus it can be considered an alternative defensive armor to the Hydra Skin Armor.

It can be quite useful on dagger classes due to their already high dexterity. This makes the loss of 4 dex compared to Hydra Skin Armor not so bad because you will aready have 75 when maxed. It pairs great with a ring that compensates its lack of def such as the Ring of the Pyramid or Bracer of the Guardian. The speed can be helpful for rushing and the health is always welcome. The wis and vit is negligible but doesn’t hurt.

It can still be useful when attempting to achieve the thousand-hitpoint mark. When paired up with a Prism of Dancing Swords and a Ring of Decades on a trickster, you can achieve 1000 HP, the highest health of all leather classes.
