The Koenig Set

A heavy set of strong metallic armor, this set adds massive bonuses to HP, Defense, Vitality, and Charisma (to enhance Killer Effects). Any heavy tank should be proud to have this set.
Like every abjuration set, this armor has a downside. In this case, the Koenig set has massive penalties to STR and DEX, crippling attack for the sake of defense. Also see the HQ version, Kaiser Cuirass Set.

Set Summary

Historical Background


A cuirass (from the Latin coriaceus, meaning made of leather, and further from the Latin word corium which was a leather breastplate), is the plate armor formed of a single piece of metal or other rigid material or composed of two or more pieces, which covers the front of the wearer's person. In a suit of armor, however, since this important piece was generally worn in connection with a corresponding defence for the back, the term cuirass commonly is understood to imply the complete body-armor, including both the breast and the back plates. Thus this complete body armor appears in the Middle Ages frequently to have been described as a pair of plates. A related item, the Corselet, is a comparatively light cuirass.


König is the German language word for king. Family names derived from König are also spelled without the umlaut ö as Koenig or without correct transliteration of the umlaut just as Konig. The high quality version of this set is called Kaiser Cuirass Set, with Kaiser being German for emperor.
