Reinforce Armor is a mechanic and service offered by anvils, certain NPCs, and Instant Armor-Reinforcing Canisters, which temporarily improves a character's vitality and defense via the Reinforced Armor effect.


Interacting with an NPC or Anvil marked with the [Reinforce Armor] nameplate and icon will provide a 12 hour effect, Reinforced Armor.

The strength of the provided effect depends on the game mode. Vitality and Defense are increased by 5% in PvE, with a smaller 1% increase in WvW. It has no effect/is removed in PvP.

The same effect is also provided by the following sources:
