  • Because the rogue damage boost from the stealth is higher than the summon damage boost from the armor, it will boost your summons. Because of this, consider using rogue damage boosts instead of summoner ones.
  • The tornado from this summon has excellent crowd control, and is very good against worm bosses such as The Destroyer.


  • The functionality of this item is a reference to the donor CrabBar's "DAD mode" (Death Mode-Armageddon-Defiled) YouTube series, in which he used a Summoner and Rogue (known as Throwing at the time) hybrid setup. This was intended to allow them to use Statis' Ninja Belt and Statis' Belt of Curses, which used to provide bonuses to both classes.
    • The donor intended this item to buff the Forbidden Armor's concept as a hybrid setup armor for Summoner and Rogue.
    • The center piece of circlet resembles a crab in reference to the donor's username.
