This undroppable item is found on demi-lich creatures encountered in the Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition and its purpose is to provide the creature with many of the lich-specific protections and immunities they naturally possess.

This item gives general protection to non-magical and +1, +2 and +3 enchanted weapons via Opcode 120. This includes ammunition launched from bows and slings.

The item gives the wearer immunity to spell and effects from levels 1 through 9 via Opcode 102.

The item bestows 100% Cold damage and Electricity damage resistance via Opcodes 28 and 29.

Some specific spells are protected against using Opcode 206 (See info box).

There are several Opcodes that can be configured by the game engine to inflict "Instant Death", "Kill Target", "Vorpal" or a "Slay" effect. These are Opcodes 13, 55, 209 and 238 (Disintegrate). This item protects against all of these instant death effects, except for Opcode 13. Opcode 13 is applied (via Opcode 177) by several Undead Killing items in the game, such as the Mace of Disruption, Azuredge and Runehammer. Thus, a demi-lich is immune to Slay, Disintegrate effect, and the Power Word, Kill (effect).

The Sword Coast Stratagems mod makes changes to this item. It rearranges some immunities to allow SCS methodology to allow Breach to affect a demi-lich, as well as some of the higher-level spell attack casts, such as Ruby Ray of Reversal, Pierce Shield and Spellstrike. It also adds numerous Opcode 328 Set Extended or Spell State identifiers for improved use by game scripts. It also adds many individual Opcode 206 Protection from Spell entries for better implementation of the creature's innate spell level immunity. Further, it makes changes to account for and improve compatibility with certain other modifications.
