Notes
This armor is an interesting piece of equipment that, in comparison to the T14 Wyrmhide Armor, sacrifices 6 DEF and 6 DEX for 50 HP, 6 SPD, and 5 VIT, making it a rather situational armor to use. However, its proc gives it the ability to periodically grant a large amount of DEF when using abilities, mitigating the loss somewhat.

It can be quite useful on dagger classes due to their already high dexterity. This makes the loss of 6 DEX compared to Wyrmhide Armor not so bad, because you will already have 75 upon maxing. 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 and defensive proc can be helpful for rushing, and the health bonus is always welcome.

It can still be useful when attempting to get 1000+ total HP without fully compromising your DEF with the Luminous Armor. When paired up with a Prism of Dancing Swords and a Ring of Decades on a Trickster, you can achieve that goal.
