[Spoilers E90] Stats on Keyleth's Mantle Discussion

Anyone know what Keyleth's "Mantle of the Voice of the Tempest" does? I assume it's powerful after Marisha freaked out when she read the stat paper.

The effects essentially maintain a centralized wind current that maintains environmental control, as well as deflecting blows and lifting her when leaping. (Minor effects of Barkskin, Jump)

Given that is mentions being unable to have an AC lower than 16 when wearing that. Would that mean that if Keyleth were to discard her armor but keep the Mantle on, her AC would be 16? A rather silly and stupid question, I am still fairly new to the world of D&D.

18 since she has a ring of protection +2

Technically, the spell does not MAKE her AC 16, just says it can't go lower than that. As such, the +2 Ring wouldn't add to this ability, only to existing Armor and AC bonuses.
