Juggernaut armor

These are not just items with a unique name; they are items that would be coveted by people all over Ferelden.

This page only lists "top tier" items. These are usually tier 6 or 7 with a very high power level. Most cost over 50 DAO goldpiece trans at stores, are discovered at the end of quest lines, or are gained from downloadable content. They are items that even a level 20 character would find useful, and each often has a corresponding codex entry. Each one comes with extremely useful enchantments.
