Although weak on it's own, when combined with the other Darkwood armor pieces it completes the Warrior Armor Set. This was introduced along with several other Item Sets by the Mondain's Legacy expansion.
Craftable Artifacts such as this require very high levels of skill to create. Talismans can tip the odds in your favour - you'll want as much help as you can get, considering that failure could potentially destroy valuable ingredients (which are mostly acquired via lengthy battles against Peerless bosses).
These parts retain the colour of the material used (and can be dyed with Pigments of Tokuno), but change hue when the entire set is equipped.
Craftable Artifacts cannot have additional Item Properties added using Runic Tools, nor can they typically receive Exceptional bonuses. Their maximum Durability can be increased to 255 via Powder of Fortifying.
These particular items will gain material bonuses depending on the type of Wood you use. Heartwood allows you to boost all the total resistance levels of the suit to at least 70.
Each individual armor piece has the same modifiers (aside from material bonuses). When completely assembled, the total armor modifiers are:
- Elves Only
- Self Repair: 3 (per part)
- Luck: 100
- Strength Bonus: 10
- Reflect Physical Damage: 25
- Defense Chance Increase: 30
- Hit Point Increase: 12
