Useful Info

Vault guards are stout warriors found only in the Vaults, or occasionally guarding its entrance or the entrance to a treasure trove. They tend to wield powerful, occasionally-branded weapons and sometimes shields. On their own, they're about as dangerous as an orc knight, but they tend to be found along with a band of vault wardens, ironheart preservers, and ironbrand convokers. Also, you are guaranteed to face a horde of them upon entering the final floor of the Vaults.

Tips & Tricks

  • Although not particularly terrifying, they can land decently powerful hits, particularly when armed with well-branded gear. Try not to take on too many at once.
  • Their magic resistance is not that great. Confusing, enslaving, or petrifying them is not a bad idea. In case of emergency, bring a scroll of fear to send most of them running.
