Had a question regarding the interaction between the armor and cloak in the thread title. Many of the upgrades to Magnera's Chain boost your defenses, like Fortitude and Will, and the Giftbearer's Cloth has become famous on these boards as one of the best cloaks in the game for boosting all your defenses except Deflection if you pump your History skill.


Do these stack with each other, or would the cloak's bonuses supersede the armor's once it gets higher than it, similar to how it works in the first game?


If I'm wearing Magnera's Chain for fashion reasons, would it be better for me to give Giftbearer's Cloth to another party member to make them tankier, or can I combine the two to MAKE MY WATCHER INVINCIBLE?!

Would have to test this, but the general rule in Deadfire is that items stack with one another (which is consistent with the rule that passives stack; item bonuses are passive.)

AFAIK, so long as the actual listed properties of the item differ, both should stack.


So the answer should be yes.

Dark green, on the other hand, is for jokes and irony in general.
