This powerful heavy armor sacrifices some defense in exchange for hefty increases in damage and mobility. It can be considered a superior alternative to the similar DPS-centric Mercy’s Bane in most situations. While it does not provide quite as much of a damage increase as Mercy’s Bane (2 less ATT/DEX), the Gladiator Guard has significantly more defense (10 more), greatly improving survivability compared to Mercy’s Bane. On top of this, the Gladiator Guard provides a large increase in SPD that Mercy’s Bane entirely lacks. The large benefits in survivability and mobility will usually outweigh the slightly worse damage in most endgame content.
