    What are the items that make you immune to Level Drain? I'm talking about things WITHOUT mods.

    AFAIK there's the Amulet of Power you get from Aran Linvail, and the Improved Mace of Disruption when upgraded with illithium.
    Can't think of anything else from SOA.

    You could always be an 'Undead hunter' and have this naturally.

    Actually that mace vs undead gives protection from Level Drain when you upgrade it. Unfortunately the name of the mace eludes me.

    @Misanthrope

    I've never heard of a "Longsword of Freedom" sold by the bonus merchants. Maybe you are thinking about some sword sold later on in the Adventurer's Mart?

    Barbarian rage makes you immune to level drain, of course you'd have to be a barbarian.

    Iirc that Freedom sword comes from the Sorcerer's Place Collection mod. Most of the half a dozen items it adds are overpowered.

    I'm almost sure the lady with Baldurans Plate and Shield and Vhailors Helm sells the Longsword of Freedom. In fact I'm totally sure but I'm a humble person :)

    The bonus merchants (Dierdre and Joluv) do not sell a long sword of freedom in a default installation. SP Collection adds the "Freedom's Call" long sword to Dierdre's stock, which protects against level drain. Yes, it (and the other items) are overpowered.

    Improved Mace of Disruption and the Amulet of Power are the only items in the base game that protect against level drain.

    A priest of Lathander has a special ability called "Boon of Lathander" which among other things, provides immunity to level drain.
