Does this insignia stack? The article says it's "not global" and only effects the armor applied, but that doesn't make much sense to me. ~ Chao 20:19, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

It's AR bonus stacks with other AR bonii. What the article is trying to say is that you only get the ectra AR on the piece you put it on. So if you add it to your headgear, and then get hit in the feet, you gain no bonus. Unless you also have one placed on your boots. Backsword 20:27, 18 March 2009 (UTC)
You can get hit in the feet? O_o I always thought AL added up, how do you hit a certain part of something? ~ Chao 20:55, 18 March 2009 (UTC)
It's a bit complicated. The Armor rating article has the details. Backsword 21:54, 18 March 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for clearing that up, makes alot more sense now. ~ Chao 19:02, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

lol[edit]

Ok, no offense, but whats up with the picture of the insignia.. the cartoonish looking yellow thing to the top right of this page..Sloh Em Oshun 06:55, 20 June 2009 (UTC)

Go look in game. Thats what the insignia looks like.
It is a centurion type helmet. It also has a strong resemblance to the helmet from Warrior Vabbian armor. 99.241.34.49 13:51, 7 October 2009 (UTC)

Aquisition[edit]

This, nor many of the profession specific inisignia's mention how to get them. How do you get them? NojWerdna 18:13, 2 November 2009 (UTC)

Rune trader. Or find them on loot. de Kooning 18:16, 2 November 2009 (UTC)

Centurion's vs Survivor[edit]

If +40AL means 50% damage reduction, +10AL means 12,5% damage reduction. However, how does it compare to +40 health ? Isn't it equivalent ? (Got curious after hearing two people arguing over Centurion's vs Survivor^^) 213.166.213.254 10:54, 31 December 2009 (UTC)

HP is better in PvP, in PvE however the armor outweighs the HP, pretty much always. This is a constant +40 AL for a paragon, which is especially useful when everyone but you has SY. 59.100.65.191 07:50, 28 March 2010 (UTC)
Its a near-constant (unless you stop shouting) +10AL, not +40AL, and assuming you stick one on each piece of your armor and not just one on your head or something silly. For PvE, a damage reduction is going to help you out anywhere you're taking a lot of damage, such as DoA where paragons are actually wanted, particularly after you figure in that you also have a shield etc with armor this will stack with. In areas where you will be experiencing more health degeneration or armor ignoring damage (such as life stealing) more hp wins over high armor. Having multiple sets and switching out based on what area you're in is the best way to go. Economically, if you can only afford one set or if your paragon is just some alt, go with higher armor over higher hp. Lillium 13:14, 29 June 2010 (UTC)
Armour is better in almost all situations. Lord of all tyria 14:44, 29 June 2010 (UTC)

Drop Reference[edit]

Should the reference of it only droping on Elona be erased? I have got many of them on EotN (specially punching with my Survivor character, some dwarves droped armor with this insignia and they weren't even paragons) Lokheit 10:03, 11 November 2010 (UTC)

I had this drop more than once and more often in EotN.24.160.87.94 06:22, 18 November 2011 (UTC) Yumiko
