"Hyrulean guards favored these greaves. They owe their distinctly high defense to the metal plates they're made from, but the added weight takes some getting used to."
The Soldier's Greaves are leg armor found in Breath of the Wild. They have a base defense of 4, and can be purchased from Ventest Clothing Boutique in Hateno Village for 200 Rupees. Since their construction is almost entirely metal, lightning will be attracted to the greaves in the event of a thunderstorm, which could potentially cause Link serious harm.
