Hearth Defender's Scale is an Armor in Pillars of Eternity 2.
When the ancestors of the Junvik tribe crossed the land bridge to the Deadfire centuries ago, this suit of scale mail made the crossing with them. It is the last physical link the tribe has to their ancestral homeland.
Every generation the warrior who wears the scales presents the armor to a successor in a hallowed ceremony. The warrior chosen to don the armor speaks the names of his entire family, and pledges on their names to defend the tribe.
The armor's many owners have never failed to maintain it, and it is in remarkable condition for its age.

Some Unique Armor carries multiple Enchantments that players may equip and some Unique Armor only has one Enchantment. These Enchantments can only be found in Unique Items and can be upgraded if needed.
Players can unlock all of the upgrades listed for a Unique Shield's Enchantment, however, some upgrades replace the current enchantment, and some can be stacked as bonus effects.
