|“||Drop half as much gold when you fall in battle!||”|
Final Guard is the cheapest armor in Shovel Knight costing only 3000 gold. Fittingly its function is to reduce the amount of money lost on death from 25% to 12% making it great for players who are struggling to amass money. On the other hand since this benefit depends on the player dying and being unable to retrieve their treasure advanced players may find it offers little practical benefit. Furthermore once the player has purchased everything in the game there comes little use for money rendering its benefit redundant.
