Class Specific Ratings for Armor of Agathys
Warlock: Great self-buff that can provide some temporary HP and does damage if you get hit. If you’re a Pact of the Blade Warlock you definitely want this. Scales with your level.
Oath of Conquest paladin: Solid defensive and offensive spell. Ppcasting at higher levels remains to be quite good value.
