Mesh armor


The armor has been discovered in the Guardian of Steel. Baratus benefits from it the most.

The mesh armor is an item in Hexen that increases the character's armor class. Its appearance is that of a mail torso, with pauldrons and a leather belt. The Fighter receives 5 points of armor, the Cleric receives 2, and the Mage receives 1. The item is first found in the Guardian of Steel.
