  2. Life-Bound Bindings Icon Life-Bound Bindings with Toxified Armor Patch Icon Toxified Armor Patch - To be used in combination with Toxic Thorn Footwraps Icon Toxic Thorn Footwraps, further increasing the effect.
  3. Torc of Passed Time Icon Torc of Passed Time (with Alchemical Flavor Pocket Icon Alchemical Flavor Pocket)
