|Shell armor ( [ )|
|Item Type||Body armor|
Shell armor is one of the basic types of armor in ADOM. They have default stats of (+0, -2) [-1, +2], although variations from this are common. They have no special attributes.
Shell armor can be useful in the early-to-mid game if a set with good modifiers is found. Otherwise, it is simply worse than leather armor, being heavier and penalizing DV and missile to-hit while being no more protective.
Guaranteed/Common sources[edit source]
They can be obtained in the same manner as all generic loot.
