      Right now the "Hierodas Flintstone Crown" is listed as being found in the Raya Lucaria Academy. However, it is located in the Hermit Village on Mt. Gelmir

        Why are talismans on this page at all? It’s not like they have special effects, everything listed for them here is just their function. And there is an axe on the armor list.

          Holy cow, who expanded all of the armor sets into each of their individual pieces?? It was just fine when the table said things like "Briar set deals 2 damage on roll per piece" and the such, this is just unnecessarily drawn-out

              Ruins greatsword works similarly to wing of astel, in that sense that charged heavy attacks produce gravity surges

                I'm sure someone in these comments has said this, but I love how all of the stat boosting pieces of armor look INCREDIBLY dumb. From was like, "Min/maxers, we got you. You can have everything you want, you just have to look stupid." And now when you go into a duel or invasion you know exactly what kind of player you're up against. 10/10

                  Perfumer's Shield is missing from the list.
                  https://eldenring.wiki.fextralife.com/Perfumer's+Shield
                  It gives 40 points of immunity (poison & scarlet rot). It's a pretty good pick for your "back" slot if you're two handing your weapons. It only weighs 1.5, and it makes a good parry tool as well.

                    Trying to find a specific chest piece. My brother and I got invaded by a guy wearing the ironclad armor from ds2. Prevents backstabs. Haven't been able to find it yet but also don't see it on wiki

                      Lusat's staff STILL doesn't have an additional multiplier for sorceries, it just has very good sorcery scaling, you will not benefit additionally from wearing 2 of them or while using another staff to cast.

                          The damage reduction on scarabs isn't correct. It doesn't increase damage by ~5%, it has a total armor negation of -~5%

                          So if you're wearing a 10% heavy helm and put on a scarab, your total damage reduction will go down by 15%. If you're at 40% DR, that's a huge shift.

                            Guardian Garb(full-bloom) is missing, it has the effect of:
                            "Raises the HP recovery effects of the Flask of Crimson Tears, but greatly lowers fire damage negation.

                            It is said that the blood-red flowers blooming on their backs mark the senescence of their ancient pact. Perhaps the guardians are part tree already."

                              special effects on armor kinda feel skeweed towards head pieces. maybe they couldve varied it a little bit. like strength n dex buffs from gauntlets. equip load n health related ones from chest piece. endurance n roll n speed n sneak related ones from leg pieces.

                                          would've loved to see different pieces with special perks. like gloves which gives extra strength or dex. leg armor which would give endurance related perks (or fall dmg reduction or less noise). chest armor with hp or weight related perks maybe. most of the stuff is in head armor.
