Use Any Item HLA Question

If you are a Mage/Thief or Fighter/Mage/Thief, and you take the Use Any Item High Level Ability, Can you cast your spells while wearing armor?

    With uai, mage/thief will be able to wear heavier armors that he couldn't previously (provided you have the strength requirements, if any.) but spell casting will still be blocked. Only special elven chainmail type armors allow spellcasting.

    Fighter/mage/thief will get no benefit from uai armor wise, but will be able to use cleric only scrolls and paladin sword/bracers.

    Btw, a kensai dualled into thief will be able to wear armor when he gains uai. That's quite a major power up.

    Thanks. I knew about the K to T, it's what made me think that this MIGHT work.

    there is only one piece of armor a thief benefits from without drawback with UAI, and that is the white dragon scale +6, it is the best AC armor a thief can wear while still getting all of their thieving abilities

    although, once you hit the last chapter of ToB, you might as well be wearing some sort of full plate +2/+3 since you won't be needing your thief abilities anyway and also, you can still lay traps with heavy armor on as well, so even better
