The Girdle of Runic Shielding is a Bauble added by Thaumcraft 5.
The Girdle of Runic Shielding works as armor; it will automatically take hit pointer for the player, but at the expense of the girdle's hit pool. When the hit pool is depleted, the bauble will not be effect. However, the girdle's hit pool will replenish over time from taking Terra and Aer vis from the aura.
The Girdle of Runic Shielding will only protect against the same sources that armor will protect against; it does not prevent damage from Status Effects or Fire.
The Girdle of Runic Shielding has the hit pool of 10 (5 hearts).
This recipe has the instability of "Minor".
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 the aura.
The armor offers no protection from damage suffered due to certain 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.
