- Despite the leggings claiming to be insulated to "complement" steel armor, while the strike damage absorption is much better, the lightning defense remains very poor.
- Additionally, it would be wise to outright avoid using the gloves, as they provide mediocre defenses, and a very low lightning and strike damage absorption, despite being made of leather, which is typically more resistant to these forms of damage.
- Wearing the Thunder Stoneplate Ring can help mitigate the low lightning absorption.
