Learn Everything about the Ankle Guard in Avatar Frontiers of Pandora and how to get the very first one in Upper Plains.

In Avatar Frontiers of Pandora, you have gears that your character can wear, but not all of that is unlocked by default. The ankle guard in Avatar Frontiers of Pandora unlocks after you complete The Wandering Clan quest. In the quest, you will be introduced to the second clan, Zeswa. 

Key Takeaways
  • Ankle Guards in Avatar Frontiers of Pandora are not unlocked by default.
  • Players need to reach the upper plains in order to unlock them.
  • They are necessary to tame the Direhorse.
  • So, players can get their first set of Ankle Guards while doing the Wandering Clan quest.
  • After talking to Minang and taming the Direhorse, players can get the Minang’s Ankle Guards.
  • I would recommend getting the Uniluk’s Ankle Guards later in Avatar Frontiers of Pandora.

How To Unlock The Ankle Guard

Ankle Guard is part of your gear, so it will just be another addition to let you have an upper hand in the combat. You can get your first Ankle Guards from Minang.

Follow these steps to get your first Ankle Guard:

  1. First of all, reach the destination to start the quest.
  2. You won’t be able to take Ikran to the upper plains, so you will have to land it before.
  3. Then head over until you reach Minang.
  4. She will teach you how to tame a Direhorse, so follow her instructions.

  11. I would suggest getting the Uniluk’s Ankle Guards, as they are pretty good.
  12. They can be crafted with a Bone Helm Rhino Lean Meat, 2 Crimson Bark, and 1 Snakewood Cone.

My Take On The Ankle Guard

I think Ankle Guards are necessary for more protection, and in my opinion, Uniluk’s Ankle Guards are the best ones. 

While there are many other options, you can stick with the common one for starters and get better ones as you progress through the story. Make sure to craft different gears and use mods on them, as they do a great job of enhancing them. 

That is almost everything you would want to know about the Ankle Guard in Avatar Frontiers of Pandora. You will get the Minang’s Ankle Guards as soon as you tame the Direhorse. So, make sure to complete the Wandering Clan quest. If you want to see a thorough review of Avatar Frontiers of Pandora, then Huzaifa Duranni’s review is what you are looking for.
