Nomad's Brigandine is a unique Armor in Pillars of Eternity 2.


This suit of armor is made in the fashion of the nomadic peoples of the far Ixamitl plains. The horse archer who owned it likely wore it on numerous raids and overland migrations. Such a piece of armor is priceless to the people of the far plains and was likely as precious to the owner as his own horse.

Small symbols have been etched into the lacquered lamellae. Some marks appear to be names while others seem to be protective runes or charms. Whether or not such wards proved effective for the nomad is impossible to determine, as is how such an exotic brigandine made its way to the Deadfire.

Nomad's Brigandine Unique Enchantment Upgrades

Enchantments play a vital role in a player's equipment, these Enchantments provide different special effects that can be used as an advantage in battle. 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. By doing this, players must have the required ingredients and sufficient Copper Pands (CP) to be able to craft their preferred upgrade.
