|“|| The delicate yet sturdy craftsmanship of the Elven races allows them to design many beautiful yet utilitarian goods. Among these is Elven chain mail, which is so finely wrought that it can be worn under normal clothing without revealing its presence. This and its lightness allows it to be worn by thieves and fighter/mages with few restrictions.|
This item, like most drow equipment, is created using Adamantine, an alloy of adamantite that quickly turns to dust if removed from the Underdark. This magical drow chain mail gives the wearer a bonus of 5% to magic resistance and takes 1 off of the speed factor of all spells cast by the wearer of the armor.
