Ever wanted to design a unique item for Path of Exile? Here's your chance! The time has come for the fourth vote in our Community Designed Unique, where Grinding Gear Games, ZiggyD, and the community work together to design a unique item. The previous votes decided the base type, design goal, and one of the special bonuses on the item. This vote will decide the name and flavour text of the item, all of which are based on community suggestions.

As a reminder, here are the current values and descriptions for the special effects that will be on the item:

Vanguard Belt (A new belt base type)
+305 to Armour and Evasion Rating
--------------------------
1% increased attack damage per 300 of your lowest value between armour and evasion
15% chance to gain Fortify on Melee Stun
You have Onslaught while you have Fortify


The name and flavour text should work with the special item effects to tell the story of the item, to give it personality. The name and flavour text will also influence the item; The additional bonus stats of the item will be chosen to further emphasise the theme that the name and flavour present.

Here is a video from ZiggyD explaining the choices for the fourth vote.

The Gemling Queen favours 'NotACuckRoach'.

I'm really hoping that this ends up being a fairly common drop (balanced for commonality if so). The rarer community cards from MTG (*cough Crucible cough*) are way too expensive for most players to afford and it feels like the event may as well not have happened.

The Brass Dome+Grace hype!

kinda weird it didnt make into 2.4. the name is rather bad excuse for not including it so it seems it is delayed on purpose to spice up the mid-league lull. kind of DLC of sorts..
All variants seems to be not good enouph, btw who designed all these names?
Liking the Unyielding Wind option or Perseverance.
Liking the Unyielding Wind option or Perseverance now, is very nice

It's very easy to imagine this one being said in Daresso's voice.
Face it, all of your suggestions are worse than this idea:

Agh! If only it were Prudence and Daresso's Perseverance instead of the other way around.

Ah well.
