Item enchantment question


Pathfinder Society® General Discussion

Lantern Lodge ***

Simply asked, can magical armor enhancements be placed on any items other than "proper" armor, shields, and bracers of armor in PFS? Specifically, could a chest slot item (shirt, tunic, ect.) be enchanted in such a way?

Our table was pondering this over last night, and I couldn't find anywhere where it specifically allows for such an enchantment to be performed in a standardized example or plainly spelled out ruling, which I know is required for PFS play since customizing items is not allowed here.

On a related but different note, can anything think of a clever way of gaining resistance/immunity to precision damage other than class features or the fortification armor enhancement? Even temporary applications from 1 shot items or spells would be sufficient.

Thanks for the assist in advance!


I think the gutstone does this. from UE i think

I am away from my books ATM

In the context of Pathfinder Society the simple answer I believe is no to making chest slot items with an AC bonus. The exception to this is looking for specific items that provide what you are looking for.

There are always bracers of armor, and a few chest slot items in the Ultimate Equipment. You may want to have a look at the Snakeskin Tunic for an AC bonus from the chest slot)

For dealing with precision damage... it might depend on the source of that damage... Items like the Steelhand Circle (a ring from the Ultimate Equipment) can negate sneak attack damage. Likewise the Jingasa of the Fortunate Soldier might be worth looking at (head slot item that provides luck bonus to AC and negates sneak attacks).
