Splint mail is one of the basic types of armor in ADOM. It comes in five varieties based on the material from which it is made.


Desirability[edit source]

Splint mail provides third-best protection among base armor groups (ring, scale, chain, splint, plate, full plate) and is relatively powerful in the early game compared to cloth and leather armor. Basic splint mail is of comparable stats to mithril chain mail. Later on, any splint mails are replaced by artifact armor or dragon scale mails.

Guaranteed/Common Sources[edit source]

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