Adamantine Scale Mail

In Baldur’s Gate 3, The Adamantine Scale Mail is a standout choice for crafting at the Adamantine Forge, mainly because there aren’t many strong medium armor sets available. This armor provides similar benefits to heavy armor, like an AC of 16, reduced damage by 1, immunity to critical hits, and protection with the Reeling status effect.

What’s great about medium armor is that it’s suitable for a wide range of classes and races, including Bard (Sword & Valour), Cleric, Druid, Fighter, Paladin, Ranger, Shield Dwarf, and Githyanki. You can add AC to your Dexterity modifier up to +2 when you wear medium armor. With a Dexterity score of 14 or higher, you can reach an AC of 18, matching heavy armor but with slightly less damage reduction.

You can equip it to your character’s chest slot in the inventory. The user needs Medium Armour proficiency or suffers penalties while wearing the armour. You can equip it on any class, companion, or character that has Madium Armour proficiency.
