Though this heavy armor of solid black iron looks haphazardly put together at best, a veteran of the battlefield knows enough to be wary of it at first sight, for its purpose in breaking through well established defenses is painfully obvious. With plates at a slanted angle serving to repel weapons away from the armor's centre, the phalanx breaker armour turns a warrior's strength and momentum into a nearly unbreakable defense.
The phalanx breaker plate armor is always masterwork; price and benefits are subsumed in the above statistics.
The plalanx breaker plate armor grants the following benefits when worn, on top of its general protective capabilities:

- Whenever enemies within 10 feet of you suffer a morale penalty or a penalty from a fear-based condition such as shaken, frightened or panicked, it is increased by -1.
- The armor comes outfitted with a pair of heavy gauntlets that grant the effects of Strong Grip when wielding a two-handed weapon.
