Do-Maru (3.5e Equipment)

From D&D Wiki

Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: Super heavy armor with a dex bonus? the most extreme armor is the dwarven plate with +11 AC and no dex modifier, why would this have +4 ac +2 dex and cost less than half?

If you look at an image of a Do-maru it is a japanese scale armor with a plateskirt. This would allow extremely good AC due to blades grazing off the scales, and a high dex because every part of the armor of flexible.

Do-maru doesn't give much more protection than usual lamellar armor and it wasn't very flexible. That's why late Japanise noblemen prefered spainish-made plate cuirasses. Try to find and read some historical sourses before making such in-balanced items. I will suggest to change it's armor bonus to +7 and dex bonus will be the same. So it will be very good armor still fit to balance and historical authenticity.
