Weight 10s
Danger Level 3
Material Mithril

Elven chain mail is one of the rarer basic types of armor in ADOM. They have default stats of [+0, +5], although variations from this are common. They have no special attributes.

Desirability[edit source]

Elven chain mail is very useful in the early-to-mid game due to its high PV bonus with no DV penalty; it is inferior to the ancient mummy wrapping, however. It is also notable as being the best non-artifact, and only smithable armor that does not cause monks to lose their martial arts DV bonus. Due to its low weight, it is also popular as an armor choice in the Quickling Tree, and commonly carried by players as replacement armor.

Guaranteed/Common sources[edit source]

They can be obtained in the same manner as all generic loot.
