Gear Guides - layout and requests
March 14th, 2013, 10:23 am

Over the next several days I'm going to make a series of gear guide posts... for example, one will contain light armors. I'll explain the layout here. I'm going to start with all blue item and vessel gear first. If anybody has any requests for non-blue item armors please post them here. Note that I'm not going to itemize each enhancement, I'm just going to say the total number of items needed to fully enhance the item (or in prerequisite cases, what is needed to enhance to the required level - this will be indented to stand out from the main posting) and also mention where to seek said items.

Here is the layout I will be using, some fine details may change, but this is the general idea.

Soliel 2 - level 80 GR26

Soliel Cloak 2 - 115 DEF, 36 RES, MP+28, INT+9
[+] FULLY ENHANCED - 158 DEF, 73 RES, MP+48, INT+23
binding requirement: Soliel Cloak +5, Demon God Black Sword (2), Sun God Tear (2)

Soliel Cloak
binding requirement:
Demon God Black Wing (2) - blue item from Abyss 1
Flemron 308 (1) - rare drop from tier 4 efreet, quest reward from Seasonal Travel 2, Lost Legion 2, and Windfrocker 2

enhancement to +5
Guardian Gem lv 1 (5)
Solflower (12) - common harvest in GR16+ quests or high level flower town
Demon God Black Wing (5) - blue item from Abyss 1

enhancement to +20
Guardian Gem lv 5 (1)
Guardian Gem lv 6 (4)
Guardian Gem lv 7 (17)
Guardian Gem lv 8 (7)
Goddess Cotton Spore (23) - rare harvest in GR24+ quests or highest level flower town
Demon God Black Sword (23) - blue item from Abyss 2
Squirming Husk (36) - rare drop from tier 4 wraith, quest reward from Rise From Your Grave 2, Watery Glaives 2, or FMQ Ruins after killing Abaddon
Fire Dragon Crystal (21) - rare drop, uncommon break from tier 4 fire dragon, quest reward from FMQ Mines after killing Gomorrah

Thanks Bertha, this is great information. I don't usually have a huge amount of time, but if I do and can scrape some data for some of the sets from other source, which type of armor are your working on first?

OK, so that I don't re-do what you're already working on, I will start gathering information about the Heavy sets whenever I have time to do so.

Sounds like a plan!

My first post, with the light armors, likely won't be posted for a couple days at least. I'm probably going to gather up a lot of info first before I build the post.

I have a complete listing in a google doc for just the blue item light armors. This is one extensive task, took about 6 hours of effort to get all the info between reading japan's wiki and confirming items in game. If anybody is willing to help a little with the medium and heavy blue item gear I'd appreciate it. PM me a gmail address and I can share the spreadsheet with you. Multiple people can edit at once, and all edits are saved immediately so no effort would be duplicated. Just don't go messing with my light armors tab, that took a while to put together :p
