A Triton's Ward is a Clothing-class piece of armor found in Golden Sun: The Lost Age. It is acquired as a rare drop from an Ocean Dragon in the deeper part of Treasure Isle. Visually, the Triton's Ward resembles a tunic with a red cape.
The Triton's Ward features a defense rating of 47, and it increases the wearer's Mercury power by 30 and Mercury resistance by 70 points. It is bought for 21600 coins while its resale value is 16200 coins. As a piece of Clothing, it can be worn by all Adepts.
This armor is instantly notable for its amazing protection against attacks and Psynergy of a Mercury nature, and its increase to Mercury power helps Adepts who use Mercury Psynergy in whatever classes they might be under the influence of. Its main drawback is its single-element focus, compounded by the fact that few enemies and bosses late in the game use Mercury attacks. It might see use on Mia because she typically uses Mercury Psynergy rather than physical attack, whereas the other Mercury Adept Piers is better off with a set of Mythril Clothes because that increases Critical Hit and Unleash rate. If the party's Djinn is arranged so that Jenna's class is influenced by set Mercury Djinn, a Triton's Ward will enhance her Water power and longevity towards Water attacks to which she is normally weak.
This item is available in Dark Dawn, the stats are unchanged as is the picture with only a revamped image. The location in which you obtain this item is Otka Island after the end of the game during the post-game side quests.
