The Lieutenant's Insignia is a warrior-specific upgrade component that reduces the duration of hexes cast on you, but causes you to deal less damage and suffer a reduction in armor rating. The damage reduction applies to all types of damage you deal, but the armor penalty only applies to the piece to which it is applied.

Reduces Hex durations on you by 20% and damage dealt by you by 5%
Armor -20 (Non-stacking)


  • Since the placement of this insignia only affects which location suffers the -20 armor penalty, you should use it on the hands, feet, or head, each of which has only a 12.5% chance of being struck (resulting in roughly 5% more damage on average).
  • Unlike most other insignias, this one is only found on rare Salvage items, not uncommon or common ones.[[verification requested]]


  • Originally, before the introduction of insignias under the old armor bonus system, this bonus was only available in Prophecies for warrior characters with access to Henge of Denravi, where a Lieutenant's Helm (with an armor level of 60) could be crafted by Alemeth for 400Gold, 8Iron Ingot(s), 2Bolt(s) of Silk.[verification requested]
    • Unlike other inherent armor bonuses, this one was not available anywhere else, and thus could not be obtained at the maximum armor level of 80.
      • This is likely the reason for the Armor -20 penalty on top of the 5% damage reduction.
    • The May 24, 2007 update changed inherent armor bonuses for Prophecies and Factions armor as well, and made salvageable insignias available for every campaign.
