|Venom Mantle ( [ )|
The glowing green cloak "Venom Mantle" is a non-guaranteed artifact. It sometimes damages and blinds melee attackers, similar to the Acid blood corruption. It grants immunity to acid and resistance to poison. It appears as a light cloak when unidentified, but can be distinguished from normal light cloaks by its unusual weight, and color in ASCII.
It is a very useful item. The acid blood effect is quite strong, it offers decent DV and PV bonuses, and all non-artifact cloaks are highly susceptible to item destruction.
It can be granted as a precrowning gift or a reward for making use of a potion of uselessness, generated in a surge of power or greater vault, or generated as random loot (albeit very rarely).
