Armor of Insults

Armor (studded leather), rare (requires attunement by a bard)

The metal rivets of this finely lacquered +1 studded leather resemble sneering faces. Whenever you cast vicious mockery, dissonant whispers, or hideous laughter, the tiny faces animate and add a torrent of japes and jibes, increasing the save DC by 1. In addition, as a bonus action you can cause the tiny faces to shriek insults and abuse at a creature within 60 feet of you, distracting it and forcing it to approach and attack you unless it succeeds on a DC 14 Charisma saving throw. If it fails the save, it is affected as compelled duel for 1 minute. The armor’s faces maintain the effect and you do not need to concentrate on it. After this effect ends, you cannot use it again until you complete a long rest.

The properties of armor of insults (other than its AC bonus) have no effect on creatures with Intelligence less than 5 or that do not have a language.
