View Full Version : Black Widow Bracers +4

I looted these and am having a problem with them. They don't work with my armor....I have +2 Mithral full plate and I have to take it off for the bracers to work at all. Is that right? I also have a +1 cloak that will stack with armor but the bracers won't work. Do bracers not stack with armor?


Edit: I think I posted this in the wrong spot...going to move it.

Armored items do not stack with armor. If the bonus you receive with your armor exceeds
the bonus from your bracers they will appear not to work.

The cloak is probably a protection item which will stack with your armor.

Thanks...I will pay closer attention to the wording of items and not get excited about the ++++ :)

General rule from D&D. Items with the same 'type' of bonus do not stack. Those bracers offer a "armor bonus" while the cloak offers a "deflection bonus". Armor is, of course, an armor bonus. If you picked up the Iron Manacles from Delera's those bracers offer a +4 deflection bonus. So those would stack with your armor, but not the cloak you currently have.
