Mithral is a rare silvery, glistening metal that is lighter than iron but just as hard. When worked like steel, it becomes a wonderful material from which to create armor and is occasionally used for other items as well.

Crafting either a weapon or an armor out of mithral adds 10 to its difficulty class.

Mithral Armor PropertiesEdit

All of the following armor benefits are changes to the base item, and do not count as item properties (very important for the purpose of adding enchantments):

Mithral Shield & Weapon PropertiesEdit

  • Shields and Weapons made from mithral weigh 60% as much as normal. This weight reduction counts as an item property.
  • Spell failure chances for shields are decreased by 20% (to a minimum of 0%). This decrease counts as an item property.
  • Mithral does not affect the size category or proficiency requirements for shields and weapons.
