The eltex shirt is an item of clothing added by the Royalty DLC that improves psychic sensitivity and makes psycasters more effective.
It is one of a set of eltex items with similar effects that cover different parts of the body.
Eltex shirts cannot be crafted. Instead, they can only be purchased through trade or received as a quest reward.
They also spawn on Imperial Nobles.
When worn by a slave, an eltex shirt increases the rate that suppression is lost by 20% per day. This stacks additively with all other forms of suppression loss rate offsets.
Compared to similar items, the Eltex shirt has the same coverage as, and similar protection to, a cloth t-shirt. This makes it significantly less protective than typical late-game options such as Devilstrand button-down shirts, which has four times the sharp rating and superior coverage. However, due to the mechanics of armor penetration the loss of protection is not as significant as the eltex robe replacing a duster, especially if paired with other protective items such as dusters, flak vests or the various powered armors.
The eltex shirt also appeases the skin torso requirements of all nobles, replacing the Formal shirt.
An eltex shirt improves a pawn's base neural heat recovery rate by 0.033 heat per second, though this will be modified by their psylink level, and increases their Psychic Sensitivity by an amount dependent on the quality.
For the full effects of qualities, see Quality.
