Guardian's Contingency are a set of items with a required character level of 55. Gathering pieces of the set and equipping them will bestow the player with bonuses, depending on how many set items are equipped.

Players must find the Plan: Guardian's Contingency and teach it to the Blacksmith before these items are available to craft. The plan may drop randomly from any targets (monsters, chests, goblins, etc) of around level 55.

Items created with this plan will always be level 42; they do not scale up with level or to the level of the character creating them. They are therefore useful around the minimum level requirement, but will soon go obsolete as gear improves at higher levels.

Required Level: 55


Set Pieces[edit]

Each piece is crafted separately with the Fiery Brimstone the main bottleneck on crafting. Since each piece has a considerable amount of randomness in the possible affixes, players will often need to recraft a piece several times to get a high quality roll.

Trivia[edit]

The graphics and lore of this set are a nod to the Marvel comic book "X-Men". The descriptions bear a resemblance to a character named "Magneto". Magneto, in the comics, wears a helmet to protect himself from psychic invasion, much like the flavor text of Guardian's Watch, and the helmets even look similar. The bracers describe Magneto as a character, and the scabbard make mention of a "brotherhood" (being, in the comics, the "Brotherhood of Mutants").
