Vanguard Sword

From Paragon Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Overview

This is a renegade branch of the Vanguard. They are displeased with the path the Vanguard has taken lately and have started their own war against the Rikti...and the rest of the Vanguard. Their actions aren't supported by the Vanguard Sword's commander, Gaussian, nor by the Vanguard's leader, Lady Grey.

They don't spawn in any outdoor zone and they can be fought only during the Story arc The Red and the Black from Gaussian.

(Please note that this group can also field its own Vanguard Heavy Assault Suits in the Rikti War Zone, who haven't been included in this article as those, unlike the rest of the faction, will be allies to players, hence not added here as enemies.)
