Parts impart additional properties when the entire set is equipped. If dyed, they will revert to their initial colouration when wearing all items (it is standard for item sets to change appearance when worn; this set simply changes to the same colour it was to start with).
The Scout Armor Set was introduced along with a few others by the Spring Cleaning 2008 event, at a cost of 100,000 "turn in" points per part. While it is still possible to gain items from the aforementioned event, it is not currently possible to gain the point tickets used to "buy" them with. However, replicas of these item set pieces can also be obtained from the Clean Up Britannia 2011 event which have 100 durability and cannot be improved by Powder of Fortification.
When the suit was originally introduced, it lacked the Mage Armor property. This was later added after player complaints that the armor was too difficult to Stealth in - and after all, should not a scout be able to use stealth? (Mage Armor removes this penalty in addition to the more well known Meditation issue.)
When completely assembled, the total modifiers are:
- Dexterity Bonus: 12
- Hit Chance Increase: 10%
