View Full Version : Question about barding (3.5)

2009-08-05, 12:36 AM
If I were to give my tiger animal companion Mithril MW breastplate barding, am I correct in figuring that it would cost 16,950gp?

Also, is there any way to get that armor to only exist when needed? Basically, I want to be able to summon that armor onto the tiger whenever I want (like say, for a fight) kind of like how a paladin summons a mount, and for it to disappear afterward until summoned again. Anybody have any suggestions?

I know it would need to be at least +1 first, that's no problem.

16,800 gp - the masterwork cost is already included in the mithril cost.

The called enchantment (MIC) doesn't quite do what you want (it'd allow the tiger to summon the armor), but most DMs would probably allow you to tweak it a little.

Maybe this isn't what you're looking for, but you could put the glamered property on it along with called. I can't think of anything else other than bribing the DM with cookies.

I can think of something else. Bribe the DM with <insert something else the DM really likes>. :smallbiggrin::smallwink:
