Sparking Mail is a normal Unique Body Armor with an item level of 23 and a Character Level requirement of 17.


At times not even the most skillful of warriors can evade a weapon blow, and only his or her armor stands between blade and flesh. A piece of armor is simply any article of clothing worn upon the person that is designed to protect and defend against attack. They range from the simplest linen rags and hardened leather tunics to heavy plate armor, which only the strongest fighters can wear.

Finding the right armor is very important. If the player lucks into one of these Unique armors, he or she will likely wear it for quite some time, since the array of modifiers is wider than are likely to be found with any mere magical armor. Only the need for a much higher Defense Rating usually pushes players to upgrade their armor.
