Myrmidon Bracer is a Keepsake that will moderately reduce the amount of damage Zagreus takes when hit from the front, but minorly increase the amount of damage he takes when hit from behind. It is obtained by giving Achilles a gift of Nectar in the House of Hades. Its effects can be enhanced by clearing enough encounters with the keepsake equipped.
Removing the Myrmidon Bracer between levels will remove both the damage resistance and damage gain from the item.
Take 20/25/30% less damage from the front, but 10% more from the back.
From Achilles; you share an Unyielding Bond
Fated for glory, he shall forever be remembered, and remember you.
- The Myrmidon Bracer is the only Keepsake that has a disadvantage to wearing it.
- Wearing the Myrmidon Bracer while talking to Patroclus will unlock unique dialogue between Patroclus, Achilles, and Zagreus.
- The increased damaged when hit from the back is a reference to Achilles' heel, the mythological weak point of Achilles.
- The Myrmidon Bracer matches the design of Patroclus's instead of Achilles'. Considering that Patroclus is missing one of his bracers, it is possible that it originally belonged to him.
