Mail armor (Some times called Chain Mail) is a type of armor that consists of small metal rings fashioned together to form a mesh, which is then fashioned into coverings for the various parts of the body.
A mail piece designed to cover the chest is traditionally called a hauberk, haubergeon or byrnie depending on its length. Leggings may be referred to as chausses, Hoods are coifs, and hand items mittons.
Some mail armor sets:
- Chain of the Scarlet Crusade - Ideal for Levels 30-40
- The Elements - A level 60 Shaman specific set
- Gronnstalker's Armor - The tier 6 hunter set
Mail armor contributes to the Mail Specialization passive buff where if a player is wearing it they will get a stat bonus that will go towards their specializaton.
