There's some outsiders with [evil] SLAs... but outsiders are also high Will. Even if the outsider did have an [evil] SLA, you'd be better off with a level 2 Spear of Purity
Some Undead as well.

Which...also have high Will saves.

Does it even work on variable alignment subtype stuff like Summon Monsters and the Summon (the special SLA evil outsiders often have)? That's the only [evil] spell that's reasonably common till all the high level demons and devils start packing Blasphemy SLAs.

It shouldn't. I'm pretty sure those only have their descriptors at the time of casting.

Habit of the Winter Explorer is kind of confusingly written. It is a body slot item that requires you to wear items for 3 other additional slots to work, but seem to not count against those other slots.

Quote
This warm outfit consists of a woolen coat and pants, boots, gloves, and a heavy fur cloak with a leather hood.
*snip*
All pieces of the habit of the winter explorer must be worn for the item to function.

I think the intent was some combination of mundane outfits being full outfits and gloves needing both to be worn. Even if it was one slot though, I don't really see it being worth the cost.

yeah, its very niche, 3/5 of the abilities only work within or in relation to cold weather

I'm heartened to see that this thread's still continuing in the near-eight years since I first posted it.

Frankly, while going back through 3E stuff I've found plenty of crap comparable to stuff in this thread. I should make a thread for that next time I encounter one. Problem would be you've got entire subsystems that are poorly thought out.
