Each piece of this nine-piece set has one additional point of base armor rating compared to its standard steel armor counterpart. With 100 points of Heavy Armor skill the complete set (including shield) provides 487 armor points, while a complete set of standard steel armor provides 451, a difference of 36 points. The pieces' enchant value, monetary value, and weight are all equal to standard steel armor. The set's major drawback is its item health, which is half that of standard steel armor.
