Rangers Lead the Way!

A few select knights are brave and crazy enough to drop behind enemy lines. Lieutenant Desna and her elite Recon Rangers are the first line of attack. Dangerous Prize Boxes feature items favored by Desna and the Rangers. Not only is this gear is designed to intimidate, but also do as much damage to the enemy as possible. As requested by Desna, their armor is equipped with razor-sharp spikes and other hazardous features, because “Even a dead Ranger should make their foes bleed.”

Recon Rangers are trained never to give up. Each Ranger is outfitted with a shield known as The Bitter End--the name serves as a reminder to all as to precisely how far a Recon Ranger is willing to go.

Contents include:

* Dangerous Dragon Wings (new)
