This armor has 6 slots, meaning it has only limited gemming options. Inserting 2 Strength Jewels will grant +50 Health and inserting a combination of Blessing and Good Luck Jewels will grant Divine Whim. Using both will leave a maximum of 1 slot, meaning no more skills can be added or improved. With 1 weapon slot, you can gem in Health +50 and a skill with 1 slot +2 jewels (except Paralysis).


  • This armor's main selling point is its Whim skill, as the Helm and any other piece together can be gemmed for Spirit's Whim, leaving 3 pieces open for choice. Combined with Leather Armor it's possible to get High Speed Gathering, Backpacking Expert, Spirit's Whim and Gathering +1, and with a 3 slotted weapon even Divine Whim or Gathering +2.
  • A usable armor for players with an underdeveloped kitchen that need a health boost, but its low defense and meager other skills make this armor only limited in usability and it should only be used to explore new maps or in combination with Leather S as mentioned above.
