- This page is about the Girdle of Runic Shielding from Thaumcraft 4. For other uses, see Girdle of Runic Shielding.
The Girdle of Runic Shielding is a bauble added by Thaumcraft 4. It provides 10 Runic Shielding and is worn int the belt slot.
Your research into protective magics have led you to discover Runic Shielding. This is not armor in the traditional sense, but a collection of charms, rings and similar protective baubles worn with your everyday clothes.
These devices create a barrier of magical energy that wards out most types of damage. The shielding has a pool of hit points from which damage is subtracted first, protecting the wearer from all harm. Once this pool is depleted the wearer starts taking damage as normal.
The pool replenishes over time and requires Terra and Aer vis to replenish its charge which it draws from carried wands.
The armor offers no protection from damage suffered due to drowning, starvation or similar environmental hazards.
Due to its nature the armor cannot be enchanted by normal means, but you are sure there are ways to improve its effectiveness - you just need to discover them.
