|Introduced in||Dragon Quest|
The chain mail is a recurring set of armour in the Dragon Quest series. Light and easy to move about in, it provides a decent amount of protection to the wearer.
The chain mail consists of a long sleeveless tunic made out of interlocking chains, also known as a byrnie, as well as a set of metal pauldrons and a gorget that goes around the wearer's neck and shoulders. Worn around the waist is a metal belt. The chain mail generally provides a good amount of defence at a relatively affordable price compared to heavier sets of armour.
