|“||Now maybe you are thinking, "I should kill Armour King so I can take all his great armour."
I don't recommend this action however.
– Armour King
Worth noting, he is extremely skilled in combat and is also protected by his Security Spider II sentries, and his personal thralls, who are also extremely skilled. He is one of a few traders who actively follows player's character around the shop and some way outside it as well.
He can be found at the Drowned Ruins in the northwest of the map, in the river next to the Arm of Okran. The only way to reach him is by swimming along the river, entering either from the south side near Blister Hill or the west side near Floodlands.
He belongs to the Skeletons faction.
They wear [Masterwork] armour and have weapons manufactured by Skeleton Smiths.

Lore[edit | edit source]
We know far more about Armour King's shop then we do know about Armour King himself. According to Armour King, he started his shop in a thriving Second Empire town called Catch nine-hundred thirty seven years ago. This coincides very nearly with the fall of the Second Empire, yet Catch (a Second Empire town) was still thriving, meaning that the fall of the Second Empire likely didn't occur at a set date; it probably occurred over a very long period of time, with select towns falling into rebellion or disrepair, until eventually all that was left of the Second Empire was Cat-Lon's Exile. This is further supported by what Armour King says about the collapse of the Second Empire.
|“||It just sort of rotted and fell apart. Very strange. Not at all like the First Empire.||”|
–- Armour King
We do know that Armour King has travelled around the world (he uses it in his sales pitch) and that he took Thralls from the Ashlands and modified them to work in his shop. Whether he took already broken skeletons or did something more sinister is not elaborated on.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The Armour King was introduced in beta v0.93.0 northwest area update.
- The Armour King will often make frequent sales pitches as your characters remain in the Armor King's shop.
- The Thralls in the Armour King's were taken from the Ashlands and modified by Armour King himself to be extremely dangerous as well as perceptive in order to catch thieves, even with no heads. Armour King claims this is because of their upgraded armour and special audio sensors in their hands.
