Mistward Armor Collection Guide

Mistward Armor is an exotic heavy armor set introduced by Heart of Thorns. The armor is Revenant-themed and is worn by the character Rytlock, as first seen in the Heart of Thorns: Act I story-line. Unlocking the Mistward Armor set requires collecting various armor components around Central Tyria and Magus Falls. In addition to receiving the Mistward Armor set, you will also be rewarded with achievement points associated with the collections. This guide provides an overview of the Mistward Armor set, and shows where to obtain the required collection items.

Collection Format

Each individual piece of the Mistward Armor set has seven components that must be collected. The components are unique to the particular armor piece, but fall into the same category. The categories for each armor piece are as follows:

  1. Tier 1 Armor
  2. Tier 2 Armor
  3. Tier 3 Armor
  4. Tier 4 Armor
  5. Component 1
  6. Component 2
  7. Insignia

The exception to this is the Mistward Headwrap which only requires the last 3 types of items (Helm Components and Insignia). Instead of requiring different types of lower armor, as is the case with the other Mistward Armor pieces, the Mistward Headwrap collection simply requires that you’ve obtained the other Mistward Armor pieces.

Mistward Headwrap Collection:

  1. Mistward Warboots*
  2. Mistward Pauldrons*
  3. Mistward Plate*
  4. Mistward Legguards*
  5. Mistward Warfists*
  6. Mistward Helm Lining
  7. Mistward Helm Casing
  8. Mistward Helm Insignia

Armor Piece Collection

You will need to unlock each piece (except helms) of the following armor sets as part of the Mistward Armor collections. Many players will likely have several of these pieces unlocked already. If you decide to purchase any of these armor pieces from the Trading Post, make sure to check for different versions of the armor to find the lowest price (e.g. Rejuvenating Scale Boots may be cheaper than Giver’s Scale Boots).
