Alchemical defense nodes are components embedded in a warforged's body that act like armor. Several slots are melded into the outer shell of a warforged designed to hold alchemical materials. The latent energy in the alchemical item suffuses the armor, providing protection against similar effects.[1]

4th Edition MechanicsEdit

The warforged can stow up to three consumable alchemical items within this armor. At the end of an extended rest, one consumable alchemical item can be stowed within this armor; this item must be no more than 5 levels lower than the level of the armor. If that item has an attack power with the acid, cold, fire, lightning, or poison keyword, until you take another extended rest you gain resist 5 damage against that damage type. If the item's power has more than one of these keywords, you gain resistance to each type. The level 15 and 20 versions of this armor give resist 10, and the level 25 and 30 versions of this armor give resist 15.[1]
