Iron vanguards are mighty warriors trained to prime physical condition and who are ruthless in obtaining victory. Few, if any, defend their allies as well as an iron vanguard.
Iron vanguards possess many abilities specific to their training, as well as the exploits and features typical of fighters. Many of the iron vanguards' abilities center around their incredible capability for endurance. When an iron vanguard defeats a foe he or she is invigorated by the little victory, pushing him or her onwards through further battles. Similarly, when about to be felled themselves iron vanguards often are able to lash out quickly and ferociously, dealing a last blow before they lose consciousness.
Iron vanguard attacks are also deadly and when one knocks their enemy prone, he or she fuels his or her impressive vitality into the strike, making it even more crippling. Inexperienced iron vanguards can also force their enemy around the battlefield, throwing them backwards or pushing them out of the way.
