Empyrea Test Realm – Grandmaster Crafted Gear

Grandmaster Crafted Gear

These recipes have been removed from the test realm on 10/25/2017!

We haven’t found them elsewhere as of yet, but will keep an eye on it.

We’ll update this article once we know more.

Test realm brought us a new Revered crafting level and new legendary craftable gear. But KI snuck some other gear into the game! If you visit the Fire teacher, Ignus, in the Arcanum, you’re welcomed with over 200 pages of  recipes. All of recipes aren’t new, however there are 3 new categories for Grandmaster crafted gear:

  • Duelist’s
  • Healer’s
  • Sentry’s

As for the ingredients of the crafted gear: among the regular reagents, pieces require already existing Dragonspyre crafted gear. As a reward, we get a brand new piece with a generic look but better stats. The stats might even be good enough for starting gear, if you decide to do Grandmaster PvP! We’ve already addressed entry barriers and gear is definitely one of them. Hopefully, this update will make life for Grandmasters new to PvP a bit easier.

Be careful though, don’t let the names fool you. Duelist’s gear sounds like a good choice, but its stats are inferior when compared to Healer’s or Sentry’s. Sacrifice a few power pip chance and you’ll get Healer’s gear with extra outgoing healing or Sentry’s counterpart with universal resist. Yes! Now level 50 and above wizards of every school will be able to craft gear with universal resist.

Below, we’ll compare this gear with gear sold by Diego, Brandon Mistborn and the Shaman’s Lore pack. Warlord and Commander gear are obviously expected to be better. But things might be interesting when comparing it with other pieces. We’ll display only gear from the Sentry category because it’s the best viable choice if you’re starting with PvP. And since every piece has 7 combinations (dual school gear) we’ll cover only one. You can always check everything by visiting Ignus Ferric.

What gear to choose?

Obviously, Warlord and Commander gear are irreplaceable. But this crafted gear isn’t meant to replace them. Instead, we think it’s supposed to make PvP experiences better for newcomers. Apart from Warlord and Commander gear as viable PvP options, we only have Veteran gear, Duelist’s gear and Pack gear – all of those are hard to obtain. Sentry gear is comparable with gear from the Shaman’s lore pack – you mostly trade some resist for extra damage, so you can save your hard earned crowns for something else. The comparison with Duelist’s gear is bit tricky – it mostly depends on your play style. Personally, I’d prefer glass cannon duelist gear, but you can stay away from tedious tournament grinding and play more defensively with crafted gear.

Surprisingly, this gear is still as good as Veteran gear! You lose some resist, but gain a lot of health and some damage. At this point it’s a matter of preference, but if you’re short on tickets or just starting out in the Arena than you should definitely try crafted gear.

 

Do you think the new gear is a good alternative for players who are just starting PvP?  Let us know what you think in the comments below!

  • I like all these steps KI is taking to making the game better!

  • nobody posted

    The myth set is actually a good set for ice too! A lot of damage!

    • SuperToare

      I was thinking the same thing but the gear is school specific so other schools can’t wear it.

  • Jeremy Ravenhunter

    Just an additional note/clarification. There is much more to craft than we displayed in this article.
    Each school has 18 different sets – 6 duelist’s, 6 healer’s and 6 sentry’s. Every gear has dual-school stats and stats differs depend on secondary school you choose.

  • Carlos SeaSword

    The crafted gear looks great! My biggest problem with the start of the second arc is that there’s no good gear until level 56, so if you start Celestia at level 48, you’re basically stuck with outdated first arc gear until you chuck your way to level 56. But this gear fixes the problem!

    Since this gear is really good, then I can’t wait to see the level 125 Empyrea crafted gear o:

    • Jeremy Ravenhunter

      Unfortunately, i don’t know the location of actual vendors.
      I assume that recipes will be moved to dragonspyre vendors, since you need their gear to craft this one.

      • SuperToare

        Let’s hope they will add the recipes to the Dragonspyre vendors. It would be inconvenient, to have to ask people for rides.

      Yo chill with
      A) Posting unrelated stuff on new articles just so that people might read them
      B) THE DAMAGE ON THAT MYTH SPELL IS SO SCARRY o:
      C) Posting so frequently. Instead of posting 10 different times with all your ideas, try to post them together.

      I think a lot of people would appreciate it. I actually think it is good that you are expressing your ideas, but you might want to put those on an older article about spell ideas…

      I have a question for you though; do you PvP?

      • sonicflare9

        i cant

  • sonicflare9

    nevv vvays to make arena tickets idea

    If you fight a boss that’s stronger then you and vvin you get 500 arena tickets (ex. being in krokotopia level 15 and you fight a boss in mooshu)

    Ever 200 badges gives you 450 arena tickets

    fighting ever 1000 creatures gives you 800 arena tickets

    NEVV PLATINUM CHEST VERY RARE gives 2500 arena tickets 25000 gold and 3500 crovvns

    • Mora Misthead

      You sure have a lot of ideas! Have you considered making a blog on the community section of Duelist for your ideas, sonicflare9?

      That way, all your ideas would be in one place, easy to find and easy to comment on. They’re usually so totally unrelated to the articles we write, so they’re really out of place. Having them in a designated blog will make it easier to compare and discuss them.

    • SuperToare

      I don’t really see Kingsisle giving away free crowns without a reason.

  • Brand Ghostspear

    I like the level 50 crafting gears, They give a nice boost for those who are struggling in celestia. I doubt they haven’t removed the items, but they relocated the items elsewhere (or they will be doing that later on if they haven’t done that).

    • Mora Misthead

      Yep, that’s what I think too. Or hope. It really was pretty interesting gear.
