The eltex vest 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.

Acquisition

Eltex vests cannot be crafted. Instead, they can only be purchased through trade or received as a quest reward.

They also spawn on Imperial Nobles.

Summary

When worn by a slave,Content added by the Ideology DLC an eltex vest increases the rate that suppression is lost by 20% per day. This stacks additively with all other forms of suppression loss rate offsets.

Analysis

An eltex vest improved a pawns Psychic Sensitivity by 15%, and improves the neural heat recovery rate by 1.5 per 30 seconds. Compared to a flak vest it is readily apparent that this is only for exclusively psychic focused pawns, with the same coverage and slot usage but with almost no protection in comparison.

The eltex vest also appeases the middle torso requirements of all nobles, replacing the Formal vest or Corset for both genders.

An eltex vest improves a pawn's base neural heat recovery rate by 0.05 heat per second, though this will be modified by their psylink level, and increases their Psychic Sensitivity by an amount dependent on the quality.
