|A heavily armed and armoured guardian of the Vaults.|
Vault guards are stout warriors found in the Vaults, 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 in bands alongside ironbound preservers, ironbound convokers, and/or vault wardens. You are guaranteed to face a horde of them upon entering the fifth and 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 willpower 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.
