|Reduced Defense (Ranged Weapon)|
Tactician's Waistguard is a Medium Leg Guards in Nioh 2. Head Armor protects the Legs of the player and can have varying degrees of quality and level, just like Weapons. In addition, they can provide Toughness bonus, physical, and elemental protection to your character. Medium Armor provides a balance between protection and agility. Toughness makes you deplete less Ki when Blocking, so if you wish to Block more often, consider wearing Armor that provides more. Usually the heavier Armor the better.

A waistguard consisting only of short tassets, so as not to get in the way when sitting on a folding stool as tacticians were known to do when surveying the battlefield.
Part of a set of armor worn by samurai assigned as commanders or tacticians in times of war. As they are usually situated in strongholds where they advise the general, they very rarely appear on the front lines of the battlefield.
