Cultural armor refers to the various ERare armor sets that are restricted by race. There are nine sets per race: three tiers each of light, medium, and heavy armor.

Purchasing cultural armor will also progress the player along the Fashion achievement line. Six armor pieces from each tier for each race (90 pieces, 640 Gold coin 90 Silver coin total) will be required to complete the achievement "The Emperor's New Wardrobe".

Acquisition[edit]

Each armor set is available in the capital city of the corresponding race, e.g. human armor is found in Divinity's Reach. The costs are the same for each race:

WvW armor[edit]

As of the April 19 2016 update, cultural armor can be bought using a combination of coin currency and Badges of Honor. The armor is sold by a single vendor, Skritt Trader, who can be found near where you spawn in Eternal Battlegrounds and on each of the three Borderland maps.

  1. ^ Assuming you sell the armor pieces instead of keeping them.
  2. ^ Note that you get back 1/8 of the non-WvW gold cost (i.e. 1/4 of the WvW gold cost), making the WvW armor an even better deal.

Attributes[edit]

Each race has different attribute prefixes available on their armor sets. Tier 1 armor has a dual-attribute prefix, while tiers 2 and 3 have a triple-attribute prefix.
