Where to find

Act One: Adamantine Scale Mail can be forged in the Adamantine Forge. Forging this armour requires the Scale Mail Mould and one Mithral Ore.


  • The Reeling condition from Adamantine Backlash is renewed on each successful hit against the wearer, and is removed on miss.
  • The Reeling condition from Adamantine Backlash and Adamantine Shield do not stack. If an opponent is sent Reeling on hit from Adamantine Backlash, the Reeling from Adamantine Shield is not applied when the opponent misses, and the Reeling status from Adamantine Backlash is removed. Likewise, if the opponent is sent Reeling after a miss from Adamantine Shield, the condition is removed upon a successful hit, and the reeling from Adamantine Backlash is not applied.
  • The effectiveness of Adamantine Backlash ironically goes down the more AC the wearer has, because it only triggers on a successful hit, and Reeling gets removed on a miss against the wearer. As a result, Adamantine Backlash also increases the likelihood that the opponent will recover from Reeling, contrary to Adamantine Shield, which does the opposite.
