comment Is this Amulet of Mage Armor and Shield legit according to the rules?
On top of this there are guidelines for Estimating Magic Item Values that explicitly call out armor enhancement bonuses. So he not missed the textbook example, he even missed the chart :)

comment How do I know who can see me when I'm invisible?
It's funny, I was thinking of Perception check as well. Just edited the question with that. Any guesses on the DC? Looking at the list of Perception DCs, it seems more and more like the wrong thing. Even the general case of "have you been noticed" seems much closer to the Sense Motive - Hunch description.

comment Mithril Breastplate + Armor Expert seems ridiculous
@KRyan total aside, it was actually a useful trade-off, the Psion goes from "Wizard-speed" to "Sorcerer-speed" on spell progression, but it converted my character from "glass cannon" to "brass cannon". I made the dip after level 10 as we had hit the point where the pointy stick had AC about 17 greater than mine. Full plate closed a much of the AC gap, Cleric gave a +2 Fort boost and Vigor + Channel + CLW gave me the ability to live through a fight or two :)

But it is a cost that's inherent in the class you're taking. If we assume that classes are balanced (for some value of balanced), then taking a class like fighter means that you're getting feats like Heavy Armor and Martial Proficiency instead of feats like Spells Known or Evasion or Poison, etc. And in fact, I actually built a character that used such a cheat. I built a Psion with a level of Cleric which gave me the two armor feats and a bunch of other utility. I have also seen combat Clerics with Heavy Armor.

...and requires a trait, which full plate doesn't Wearing the full plate with no penalty requires an extra Feat (heavy armor), it may be a "free feat" for some, but it's still a feat. There's also a speed cost that you are forgetting to mention. Regardless of proficiency, Full Plate will slow you down significantly.

comment What does the caster level refer to in the magic items?
So the caster level actually has nothing to do with making the item. Caster level sets the DC of the item, but does not impose any requirement on the creator's caster level. Especially when you consider that non-casters can create magical items. (d20pfsrd.com/magic-items#TOC-Magic-Item-Creation)
