The only heavy armour that isn't affiliated with any particular faction, it's become standard with mercenaries and wanderers.

Slot: ARMOR Type: Heavy Armour


Mercenary Plate is a Heavy Armour that is equipped in the Body Armour slot.

It is often seen worn by Shop Guards, Caravan Guards, Manhunters, Slavemongers, Slaver Guards, Slaver Heavy Guards and other guard variants.

It can be crafted in the Heavy Armour Smithy after researching the appropriate blueprint.

This item can be dyed.

This armour has inventory dimensions of 4x6.

Appearance[]

Mercenary Plate is built from several different pieces of armour plating. From the shoulders to mid-chest are heavily protected by pieces of armour plating designed with the appearance of muscles. The shoulders are protected by giant pauldrons. Wristguards held by leather bands cover the forearms and hands of the character. Despite all this, the armour leaves the stomach fairly exposed. 

This item can also be found in different colours throughout the world. For example a blue variant can be found on Slavemongers, and a black variant on Shop Guards. 

Trivia[]

  • Despite its name, and the claim that it has become standard amongst their kind, no members of the Mercenary Guild wear Mercenary Plate. A mod has been released that fixes this.
