One of the most useful, underrated skills in the game. Forget the rain and turn to oil. Just buy or pick up as many oil flasks as possible, for ex Exter in Act 1 sells them, and you can have over 15 flasks by level 7. Throw the flask directly underneath you and use the spell... regain almost ALL your armor instantly.
Useless. No matter which fight is it, oil surfaces rarely survive longer that 1 turn. If your chars not burn/contaminate/convert it into something, them AI will most certainly will.
Its super-useless because the armor is RESTORED, not ADDING which is not only worse, its non logical to design. My characters which wears agility armor simply has, like, almost 2 times less phys armor than this spell restores. Only a fully str build with potion consumed and other spells can benefit from this spell in terms of restoring armor. If you need to gain a lot of armor then just use bonecage. Too bad for the restriction are needed to perform, the oil substance is not live long on the battlefield/
Can not be cast on allied characters.
Is it possible to use Oily Carapace on allied characters?
Is this self cast?
Regenerates a LOT of armor (maximum is like 3 times bigger than what fortify gives you), but doesn't remove any status effect. Good if you have a lot of physical armor OR if your physical armor is almost destroyed and you want to save fortify.
