Spider shell armor ( [ )
Item Type Body armor
Artifact? No
Weight 300s
Danger Level 1
Material Nonmetallic

Spider shell armor is one of the rarest types of danger level one armor in ADOM. They have default stats of (+0, -2) [-1, +5], although variations from this are common. They have no special attributes.


Spider shell armor is quite powerful in the early game, on the level of chain mail. Unluckily prior to identification they look the same as regular shell armor (which is worse than leather armor despite weighing double the amount) and are usually too heavy to lug around for identification.

Guaranteed/Common SourcesEdit

They can be obtained in the same manner as all generic loot. Notably, dark elven beastfighters start equipped with one.
