How to Craft 49 Gold Gear ~ An in-depth guide
Hello brave adventurers!
So, you’ve gotten to the gearing stage huh? After the typical grind to 49, I’m sure you’re happy to get settled in to gearing your character. Depending on your role, this will be a simple guide of how to acquire the materials you need and what pieces you should obtain first.
This is all done in the view point of a Spirit Shaper but the materials will be the same for each piece, no matter your class.
Now, let’s get started!
1. NPC Locations
2. Materials – Where & How to Obtain
3. Gear & Gearing Priority
Before I get into what you’ll need, I will tell you where to vendors are, what they have, and the ones who you will use to make the equipment.
There are two locations you can find these NPCs. One is in Sulan’s major city and the other is to the north of Sulan.
The red boxes show the general locations of the NPCs.
There are 4 NPCs you need to watch out for, next to each picture is their location in Sulan. The first is the two you make your equipment at, which have counter parts.
The next two are used to get most of the mats you need for your equipment, some of it used in exchange for Soul of Mist.
Materials – Where & How to Obtain
Most of the materials you need can be bought at the Grocer in exchange of Demonslayer points and Soul of Mist. You can obtain this via different dungeons. Here’s a list of the dungeons you can receive it from:
- Misty Hollow Normal (45+)
- Shrine Hard (40+)
- Shrine Expert (45-49, Amount increases depending on the difficulty)
In Misty Hollow Normal, Shrine Hard and Shrine Expert: Basic (1*) reward players with items called Mist’s Nyx – Secret Treasure. These can be opened to receive a treasure map. The treasure map, once clicked on, takes a player to a random location and you receive a reward. The reward can vary from any number of Soul of Mist to a crafted item (usually an accessory).
The Higher difficulties of Shrine Expert reward players with items that give varying numbers of Soul of Mist in larger amounts. It also rewards Mist of Bright Jade which is used in making 5 of the crafted gear pieces.
Now to what the NPCs offer. Here is the NPC with the corresponding items you will need for making your gear.
Listed below the pictures are the items you can buy from them that are important.
The Guide Quest Posting NPC is linked to the Imperial Society. You need Merit points to purchase all of the items from them. The main way to obtain the merit is by doing the weekly mentoring quest that can be repeated up to 3 times. Another way is running dungeons as you would when you’re mentoring.
The other NPC, Guardian Lesser Grocer, you will need to be demonslaying tier 3 to purchase the items. You will need demonslaying merit to purchase them as well. This merit can be easily obtained by doing the daily and weekly quests for demonslaying. You can find out what these are by going to your character window and selecting the order tab.
Gear & Gearing Priority
Now we come to the NPCs that you can create the items from. It shows the item and what materials you need to make them.
Weapon & Off-Hand
I recommend you start with your gloves and boots first, then your weapon. After that you should focus on the armour and then slowly get your accessories which can drop from various locations as well as being made. Leave your offhand to last.
Priority List: Gloves > Boots > Weapon > Chest > Greaves > Helmet > Rings > Earrings > Necklace > Off-Hand
It is recommended you go for armour straight off and not worry about your weapon until the absolute end. Tanks need to survive and have more defence to combat again bosses’ attacks. Your shield will come first, so here’s the recommended priority for gearing.
Priority List: Chest > Greaves > Helmet > Off-Hand > Gloves > Boots > Earrings > Necklace > Rings > Weapon
To start off, healers should make sure their armour is made then their off-hand. Your weapon will come last as this class is more delicate than others and needs that defence to survive. The heals pumped out by this role are usually quite high at a basic level.
Priority List: Chest > Greaves > Gloves > Boots > Helm > Off-Hand > Necklace > Earrings > Rings > Weapon
