No. You do get 1 attack die though...maybe the translator saw the artwork and thought that the arrows would come out of the bracers instead of being repelled by them.

I like that idea, they are just close range darts though... assassinated!

How strange that something called an Arm guard would give you attack dice, and not defense dice???
The German version sounds littered with issues.
Anzugreifen means attack, so clearly it's correct?
Strange.

The German translation is wrong! From the UK Box:

I didn't make myself clear. I know the German version is wrong and they have interpreted it completely wrong.
I was just clarifying that the German for attack IS anzugreifen, so as to explain that it is not a problem with reading the German card.
Meaning the card is printed wrong, not being read wrong, if you get me.

Error or not, the point is if the game was printed that way, that's how people played it, hence a rule/edition variant!

Just noticed the German card doesn't have ARMOUR printed at the bottom of it either, like the UK version.
Another chance of clarification missed.

Actually a Monster shield as defense gives the monsters a less chance of defending, so that works in the heroes favor. A 5 and 6 on a red dice gives the monsters a 1/3rdchance of blocking. Black shield gives them 1/6th chance.

I don't know about the Bracers, though... Those were only ever available in the European version that only allowed the Wizard to wear it for +1 defense.
Must be a mistranslation in the German version.
However in this new version any hero can wear it for +1 dense, upping their potential defense dice to 7 (8 if you have rock skin). Too high in my opinion.
