Vanguard Initiate

Campaign: Core
Type: Effect

Your armor is improved while performing missions for the Ascalon Vanguard.


Vanguard Initiate is an effect granted while performing quests for Lieutenant Langmar in Pre-Searing Ascalon. The effect will be present in all areas while a Vanguard quest is active.

The effect sets the character's overall armor rating to a fixed number based the character's level and profession, listed in the table below. This overrides the base armor rating (stated as "X armor") of all equipped armor and shields; however, any armor bonuses on equipped items (stated as "+X armor") will still be active.
