The Beetle Scale Mail is one of the two potential upgraded armor pieces of the Turtle Scale Mail, the other piece being the Beetle Shell. With less defense (20) than the Turtle Scale Mail (27), it has a 6% increased movement and melee speed, as well as a 8% increased critical strike chance and melee damage. Unlike the Beetle Shell, when this is equipped enemies will not be more likely to target you.
When using the full set with Beetle Scale Mail, if the player continuously deals damage with Melee weapons, a beetle will spawn granting the Beetle Might buff, which grants 10% increased melee damage and speed. Up to 3 beetles can follow the player at a time and if the player stops attacking they will vanish after a few seconds. The beetles do not have any other effect than simply increasing melee damage and speed. The Beetle Scale Mail is the more damage-oriented chestpiece of the two chestpieces.
