The best hoplite armor consists of a lightweight bronze over leather breast-and-back, bracers, reinforced leather tassets and sandals. Other varieties use bronze scales to achieve the same protective effect with similar mobility. More fanciful versions like this one likely belonged to the leaders of a phalanx. The hoplite armor is always masterwork; price and benefits are subsumed in the above statistics.
The hoplite armor grants the following benefits when worn, on top of its general protective capabilities:
- You gain a +2 bonus to all Constitution-based checks, and all nonlethal damage taken by performing physically strenuous activities like marching, hustling or running past the usual limit is reduced by 2 points.
- Against piercing attacks of any kind, the hoplite armor's AC bonus counts as 2 higher.
- You count as having level 1 heat protection or your existing level of heat protection increases by +1 (see Protection against Heat, Sandstorm pg. 14).
