0003636: Mail shirts protect lips, eyelids etc.
While testing some things in the arena I noticed that face parts like lips, eyelids, cheeks etc. are protected by mail shirts.
1. Enter arena.
2. Create a creature equipped with mail shirt. Create a high level creature equipped with a weapon.
3. Aim an attack at any of the face parts.
4. Repeat until you hit.
I understand that a mail shirt should protect the head and even the throat a little, cause it looks like a hoodie, but not the face.
No tags attached.

Have you done any modification to the RAWs?

No, none at all. Here's a screenshot of some further testing http://i51.tinypic.com/2lcbmaf.jpg [^] It seems like the head itself is not protected, only the face parts. I double-checked cheeks, eyes, eyelids, nose, mouth and lips.
