The rarest item in the Tal Rasha’s Wrappings set, Tal Rasha’s Guardianship boasts a relatively high required level of 71. On its own, it’s fairly interesting armor due to its slate of resistances (+40 to fire/lightning/cold) and +88% Magic Find. Thankfully it also has its requirements reduced by 60%, giving it a relatively moderate Strength requirement of 84 - well below what you’ll need to get to wield a Spirit Monarch.
While this armor pales in comparison to runewords like [Chains of Honor] and [Enigma], Tal Rasha’s Guardian doesn’t require any high runes to create, and gains some interesting boons when worn with other parts of the Tal Rasha’s Wrappings set. Namely, with a total of two items the armor itself gains +10% Faster Cast Rate, and with three items the set itself grants the wearer +65% Magic Find. There are better individual suits of armor to wear for combat, like Skins of the Vipermagi and magic finding, like Skullder’s Ire, but if worn along with two other set items (Tal Rasha’s Adjudication and Tal Rasha’s Fine-Spun Cloth being the most popular companion set pieces) these items become one of the better options for a magic find-oriented Sorceress… at least, one of the best options that doesn’t require a Ber rune.
Finding this armor can be something of a hassle, however, as its base item - Lacquered Plate - ensures no monsters will drop it before later in Hell mode. You probably won’t see it before Act 4, although monsters within [aLv85 areas] can drop it, making [The Mausoleum], [The Pit] and [Ancient Tunnels] being your best hunting grounds for this - and nearly every other item in the game. Failing that, a combination of Eldritch, Shenk and Pindle runs may suffice.
