Gear Progression

From PWpedia
Jump to: navigation, search



Perfect World has a multitude of gear options for players to choose from, and this can become overwhelming. This is a guide to help players discover their options for each level range and what gear paths they should work on. It is important to keep in mind that a player's leveling speed will affect their gear options. Some players can level up so fast that certain gear sets become obsolete quickly and thus are not worth farming.

Level 1 - 10[edit | edit source]

Quests[edit | edit source]

  • The quest "Preparing for Battle" from the Celestial Vale Quest Chain awards players with a level 1 weapon, a level 1 armor set (chest, pants, boots, wrists), and a level 1 belt. Each piece of equipment is class-restricted.

Dreamchaser Pack[edit | edit source]

Players can obtain a Dreamchaser Pack from Arc codes or promotions. This pack will give players a lot of useful items, including gear, to last them up to level 50. Codes for Dreamchaser Packs may be given out during events or during holidays. These codes are announced on the Arc Twitter or the PWI Facebook.

Level 10 - 20[edit | edit source]

Level 20 - 30[edit | edit source]

Quests[edit | edit source]

  • The quest "Celestial Balance" from the level 19 Aware of Principle Spiritual Cultivation quest awards players with a level 20 Minister weapon of their choice. Each weapon is class-restricted. The quest requires you to kill a boss in Lightsail Cave, so you may require help to kill it.

Codes for Dreamchaser Packs may be given out during events or during holidays. These codes are announced on the Arc Twitter or the PWI Facebook.

Eye of the Jungle[edit | edit source]

At level 30 the Eye of the Jungle·Void belt becomes available. It was originally crafted using the Stone of the Jungle materials which are obtained from the Jungle Ruins event, but after the PWI Neverfall content update this event can only be manually activated by the GMs. The Stone of the Jungle items can also be obtained from chance packs from the Boutique or bought from other players. This belt can be further upgraded to a level 80 version and it has a unique add-on that allows the owner to spy on the stats of other players in the same manner as the Eye of Observation. In the current times, this is not a very popular belt to use. Players will usually wait until they can farm Quicksand Maze and Warsong Barrier belts instead.

Level 30 - 40[edit | edit source]

Quests[edit | edit source]

  • The quest "The Ultimate Mantou" from the level 30+ quest chain Beautiful Chang's Mantou awards players with a level 30 Duke weapon of their choice. Each weapon is class-restricted.

  • The level 40+ quest "Flower of Love" awards players with level 31 Duke leggings of their choice, allowing players to obtain a second one. The leggings are class-restricted.

Dreamchaser Pack[edit | edit source]

Players can obtain a Dreamchaser Pack from Arc codes or promotions. This pack will give players a lot of useful items, including gear, to last them up to level 50. Codes for Dreamchaser Packs may be given out during events or during holidays. These codes are announced on the Arc Twitter or the PWI Facebook.

Rank 1[edit | edit source]

At level 30 players will receive their first rank gear. Rank 1 offers body wear, leg wear, a belt and a ring. Players can acquire the required reputation for this rank by completing quests. Although rank 1 gear is pretty good, it will be overshadowed by the Dreamchaser Pack gear.

Eye of the Jungle[edit | edit source]

At level 40 players can obtain the Eye of the Jungle belt using Celestial Shards from the Celestial Tiger Event. The event was originally run every Monday, but after the PWI Neverfall content update this event can only be manually activated by the GMs. Luckily, a lot of players are still selling the Celestial Shards or the belt itself for a pretty low cost. A lot of players use this belt for several levels until they can obtain something better such as the Quicksand Maze gear. This belt should not be confused with the Eye of the Jungle belts that are obtained from the Jungle Ruins.

Level 40 - 50[edit | edit source]

Quests[edit | edit source]

  • The quest "Haggle the Haggler" from the level 44+ quest chain Humorous Wedding awards players with a level 33 Royal necklace of their choice, which are actually meant to be level 43 necklaces. The necklaces are not class-restricted.

Players can get level 41 and 42 armor for completing the following quests:

  • The Scepter (Level 41-51): Level 41 pants
  • Master Tsang (Level 40-50): Level 42 wrists
  • Family in Danger (Level 42-52) or Evil Force (Level 39+): Level 42 chest
  • Waning Moon's Pickaxe (Level 42-52): Level 42 boots

Dreamchaser Pack[edit | edit source]

Players can obtain a Dreamchaser Pack from Arc codes or promotions. This pack will give players a lot of useful items, including gear, to last them up to level 50. Codes for Dreamchaser Packs may be given out during events or during holidays. These codes are announced on the Arc Twitter or the PWI Facebook.

Rank 2[edit | edit source]

At level 40 players can obtain the Rank 2 ring and belt. Players can acquire the required reputation for this rank by completing quests. the ring and the belt are pretty good for their level range.

Wild Mane Mantle[edit | edit source]

The level 40 Wild Mane Mantle cape is pretty good for its level range. This cape can be crafted using Celestial Shards from the Celestial Tiger Event. The event was originally run every Monday, but after the PWI Neverfall content update this event can only be manually activated by the GMs. Luckily, a lot of players are still selling the Celestial Shards or the cape itself for a pretty low cost.

Level 50 - 60[edit | edit source]

Quests[edit | edit source]

Rank 3[edit | edit source]

At level 50 players can obtain the Rank 3 ring and leg wear. Players can acquire the required reputation for this rank by completing quests. Although the leg wear is pretty good, it will be overshadowed by the Quicksand Maze one. After Rank 3, rank gear is generally not worth pursuing unless the player is planning to get Rank 8 or Rank 9 in the future, or the player desires the rank gear tops for the interval (physical classes) or channelling (arcane classes) stats.

Quicksand Maze[edit | edit source]

At level 55 players can begin farming Quicksand Maze for what is often considered to be the best gear set for that level range. The gear set includes armor, weapon and ornaments.

You can obtain a total of 8 Ancient Transcripts, which are used to make this equipment, through the Coming of Age Quest Chain while performing the Coming of Age ceremony.

Retired Equipment[edit | edit source]

Previously players could acquire a level 50 Attendance Ring from the Roll Call daily quest, however this event has since been retired. Players can still exchange their Attendance Sheets for this ring if they have any available.

Level 60 - 70[edit | edit source]

Quests[edit | edit source]

Twilight Temple[edit | edit source]

At level 60 players can start farming Twilight Temple weapons. Twilight Temple armor will only be available after level 70, but the level 70 weapons will require Souledges from level 60 Twilight Temple weapons so if one wishes to follow this weapon path they can start farming their weapon early. Twilight Temple weapons will eventually lead to level 100 Nirvana weapons.

Rank 4[edit | edit source]

At level 60 players can obtain the Rank 4 ring, body wear and belt. Players can acquire the required reputation for this rank by completing quests, though they may need do some extra work to obtain enough. The body wear is fairly popular due to having interval (physical classes) and chanelling (arcane classes) stats, but it will generally be overshadowed by the Quicksand Maze gear.

Matchless wings[edit | edit source]

The rare Matchless Wings cape becomes available at level 60. It has a low chance of appearing when opening chance packs from the Boutique and it can be bought from other players. This cape can be upgraded into the Wings of Ascension through the Advanced Endless Universe using 9 Perfect·Token of Best Luck and 9,999 Perfect·Token of Luck. The Wings of Ascension can be further upgraded at level 100 through the Arigora Colosseum, but due to the Arigora Colosseum being a recent addition to the game, the majority of players still use the Wings of Ascension as their endgame cape.

Crown of Madness[edit | edit source]

At level 60 the Crown of Madness becomes available. It is currently the most powerful helmet in the game, but is hard to obtain. The Crown of Madness has a low chance of appearing when opening chance packs from the Boutique and it can be bought from other players. Sometimes it will be given out as a reward in competitive PvP events. The prices vary, but the helmet is generally worth over 1 billion game coins. It is not something level 60 players can actually afford, but it is the endgame goal of all competitive PvP players.

Level 70 - 80[edit | edit source]

Quests[edit | edit source]

Twilight Temple[edit | edit source]

At level 70 players will be able to farm and use Twilight Temple level 70 armor and weapons. This armor set is not actually very good, but if players are unable to farm Quicksand Maze or obtain mold gear, this armor set can be a decent alternative.

Rank 5[edit | edit source]

At level 70 players can obtain the Rank 5 ring and leg wear. Players can acquire the required reputation for this rank by completing quests, though they will need do some extra work to obtain enough. The leg wear is pretty good, but it will be overshadowed by the Quicksand Maze gear.

Quicksand Maze[edit | edit source]

At this level players can farm the level 70 Quicksand Maze gear which many consider it to be the best gear set for that level range. The gear set includes armor, weapon and ornaments.

You can get a total of 5 Original Lores, which are used to make this equipment, through various level 65-76 quests:

  • Ex-cons (Level 65-75)
  • Avenging Monster (Level 66-76)
  • Secret Plan (Level 67+)
  • Strange Dog (Level 68-78)
  • Crisis of the Tauroc (Level 64-74)

Warsoul Helmets[edit | edit source]

Warsoul helmets are available at level 70. There are two versions of Warsoul helmets: the heavy Warsoul of Earth and the arcane Warsoul of Heaven. They can be obtained from a Championship Scroll, a reward for winning the Thursday PvP Tournament Event. Despite being a PvP event reward, these helmets have become widely available over the years and are easy to obtain. Most players only use them as temporary helmets until they farm their Nirvana ones, or they skip them entirely due to the existence of Quicksand Maze gear sets. Arcane classes, however, might choose to keep the Warsoul of Heaven due to the channeling add-on.

Legendary Gear[edit | edit source]

Legendary gear is gear that can be crafted using a rare mold and Crafting materials. Molds used to drop from bosses in Call to Duty dungeons, but now they can only be obtained using Mysterious Chips at the Mysterious Merchant in Archosaur or the City of a Thousand Streams. Some legendary weapons can also be crafted using items awarded from Divine Contract quests. Most legendary gear is obsolete as they are individual gear pieces without a set and they cannot be upgraded, however, some legendary gear pieces are still useful. Already-crafted legendary gear may be sold by players in the Auction House.

In this level range the most notable legendary gear pieces are the following: The level 77 Misty Forest Ring is a very popular ring choice for physical classes because of the accuracy add-on. Likewise, the level 70 Calamity Axes of Blood are a popular weapon choice for the respective classes due to the Sacrificial Strike add-on which has a chance to deal double damage. The level 70 Sakyamuni's Light and the level 79 Glaives of Divinity are decent weapon choices for arcane classes that couldn't obtain something better. Psychics, who can only use Soulsphere, have the option of the level 74 Bloodpain Soulglaive and Assassins, who can only use daggers, have the option of the level 74 Shadow Legend. The level 77 arcane wristguards Sleeves of Sea Captain are a popular choice due to the channelling add-on.

Retired Equipment[edit | edit source]

Previously players could acquire a level 70 Attendance Ring from the Roll Call daily quest, however this event has since been retired. Players can still exchange their Attendance Sheets for this ring if they have any available.

Level 80 - 90[edit | edit source]

Quests[edit | edit source]

  • The quest "Rescue Residents of 4 Nations" from the level 85/86+ quest chain Four Missing Nations awards players with a level 85 Quicksand Maze armor set (chest, pants, boots, wrists) of their choice. Each armor set is class-restricted.

Twilight Temple[edit | edit source]

If players previously started farming Twilight Temple gear, they can now work towards their level 80 set or craft it if they've already farmed or bought the materials from other players. The armor set leads to a dead end as the level 90 armor has its own upgrading path, but the weapons will continue their upgrades all the way to level 99.

Rank 6[edit | edit source]

At level 80 players can obtain the Rank 6 ring, body wear and belt. Players can acquire the required reputation for this rank by completing quests, but they will need to do some extra work to obtain enough. The body wear is fairly popular due to having interval (physical classes) and chanelling (arcane classes) stats, but it will generally be overshadowed by the Quicksand Maze gear.

Frostcovered City[edit | edit source]

Level 85 Frostcovered City gear is available for players to use, but after various game expansions the gear became hard to farm due to having the dungeon revamped from a farming dungeon into a leveling dungeon. The last boss of Frostcovered City, Holeen the Champion of Fientazzar, has a chance to drop various gear pieces. There are two types of Frostcovered City gear: the green gear and stronger version, gold gear. The dungeon also drops items called "Past of Frostcovered City" which can be exchanged for a powerful level 85 gold weapon. However, the weapon requires a very high amount of those items and players will level out of the level range before they can ever collect enough.

Warsoul Weapons[edit | edit source]

Warsoul Weapons become available at level 80. They were once the ultimate weapons of Perfect World and were extremely hard to obtain. Subsequent game expansions introduced more powerful endgame weapons so Warsoul Weapons became easier to farm. Currently, these weapons require Warsoul materials which can be farmed through the Nation Wars, though players will usually reach level 100 before they can obtain their Warsoul weapon. The second cast of Warsoul weapons can compete with Rank 9 third cast weapons, though Rank 9 will still have the edge due to unique add-ons. Warsoul weapons are usually the endgame goal of players that cannot afford Rank 9.

Puzzle Cube Necklace[edit | edit source]

At level 80 the Cube of Fate Puzzle Cube necklace becomes available, but players won't be able to farm it until after level 90. It is generally too troublesome to farm the necklace this early so players wait until they reach level 100 and obtain stronger gear as well as obtaining enough prestige in the order of Luminance from Morai so that they can run the Cube of Fate twice a day. The Cube of Fate necklace has three stages and the third stage can be further upgraded through Nation Wars. A lot of players use the Nation Wars version of the Puzzle Cube necklace as their endgame necklace.

Players can also craft a Puzzle Cube necklace from the Token Packs item "Cube of Fate Stamp". The Puzzle Cube have two versions: the elemental necklace that refines for magic resistance and the protection necklace that refines for physical resistance.

Warsong Belt[edit | edit source]

At level 80 the Warsong City Warsong Barrier belt becomes available, but players won't be able to successfully farm it until after level 100 when they can obtain stronger gear. This belt can be crafted using the "Warsong Waistband Inscription" items that drop from Warsong City's final boss, The Incacerate, and Warsoul materials easily obtainable from Nation Wars. Players can farm their Warsong Barrier belt while farming their Awakened Nirvana Gear as both of them will require farming Warsong City. Players can also craft a Warsong Barrier belt from the Token Packs item "Warsong Marshal Badge".

The Warsong Barrier belt is the endgame option of all players that do not go for Rank 9 gear. Similar to the Puzzle Cube necklace, the Warsong Barrier belt has three stages and has two versions: the elemental belt that refines for magic resistance and the protection belt that refines for physical resistance.

Eye of the Jungle[edit | edit source]

At level 80 players can upgrade their Eye of the Jungle·Void belts into a better version. This is a great belt to use even at level 100, but most players opt for the Warsong Barrier belt due to it being easier to farm, especially after the Jungle Ruins were discontinued. This belt has a unique add-on that allows the owner to spy on the stats of other players in the same manner as the Eye of Observation.

Quicksand Maze[edit | edit source]

Players have the option to begin farming their level 85 Quicksand Maze gear, which they can choose to use all the way up to level 100. Should they choose to do so, it is advised to make a small investment in this gear set to get some refines and shards. The gear set includes armor, weapon and ornaments.

You can get a total of 4 Skyhidden Scrolls, which are used to make this equipment, through various level 79+ quests:

  • Last Leopard (Level 80+)
  • Making Wine (Level 81+)
  • Village on the Plain (Level 83+)
  • Miss Yun's Missing (Level 79+)

Legendary Gear[edit | edit source]

Legendary gear is gear that can be crafted using a rare mold and Crafting materials. Molds used to drop from bosses in Call to Duty dungeons, but now they can only be obtained using Mysterious Chips at the Mysterious Merchant in Archosaur or the City of a Thousand Streams. Some legendary weapons can also be crafted using items awarded from Divine Contract quests. Most legendary gear is obsolete as they are individual gear pieces without a set and they cannot be upgraded, however, some legendary gear pieces are still useful. Already-crafted legendary gear may be sold by players in the Auction House.

In this level range the most notable legendary gear pieces are the following: The level 87 Sky Demon's Pearl necklace is a popular choice for players in that level range that don't have Quicksand Maze ornaments and it is often used up to level 100 until they can farm a Puzzle Cube necklace. The level 86 Demon Slaughter Belt is a fairly popular choice as well. The level 89 magic sword Requiem Blade is a decent weapon for arcane classes that weren't able to obtain something better. However, it will usually get replaced by a level 95 Morai weapon. Psychics, who can only use Soulsphere, have the option of the level 80 Skyshaker Soulglaive and Assassins, who can only use daggers, have the option of the level 80 Glowfall Wings. Lastly, the level 88 Ring of the Heavenly Lord is a nice ring for physical classes that couldn't find something better.

Level 90 - 100[edit | edit source]

Quests[edit | edit source]

  • While doing the level 90+ Morai Quest Chain, players can acquire level 95 armor pieces (helmet, chest, pants, boots, wrists) of their choice. These armor pieces are not class-restricted. Players will not be able to equip this armor until they are level 95. While some of its stats aren't as high as the level 85 Quicksand Maze armor set, the Morai set is a higher grade and therefore you can get more health by refining it.
    • Previously the Morai Quest Chain would also award players with a level 95 weapon, but this reward was removed after the Wings of Rebirth expansion.

Twilight Temple[edit | edit source]

At level 90 players can begin farming their Twilight Temple level 90 gear, which is the starting point of the Nirvana Gear path. The level 90 armor does not require Souledges from lower level Twilight Temple armor so players will have no trouble farming a set even if they didn't previously farm any Twilight Temple gear. The armor can be upgraded to Twilight Temple level 99 gold gear and eventually turned into Nirvana armor at level 100. The Twilight Temple level 90 weapons will require Souledges of previous weapons, but some magic classes have the option to craft the Divine Aegis at level 99 which does not require any Souledges. Despite being a Pataka, this weapon can be turned into any type of Nirvana weapon, except Soulspheres and Scythes.

Rank 7[edit | edit source]

At level 90 players can obtain the Rank 7 ring, body wear, leg wear and belt. Players can acquire the required reputation for this rank by completing quests, but they will need a lot of extra work to obtain enough. The body wear is fairly popular due to having interval (physical classes) and chanelling (arcane classes) stats. The rest of the rank 7 gear is also pretty good, but there are better options of this level range due to being cheaper or easier to obtain.

Old Heaven's Tear[edit | edit source]

Players that gained access to the Old Heaven's Tear maps have the option to craft level 90+ Old Heaven's Tear gear. This gear is not very strong but materials are easily obtainable or can be bought from other players for a low cost. This can serve as temporary gear until the player is able to farm something better. The stats of Old Heaven's Tear gear are completely random. Despite being a weak gear set, some gear pieces may be invaluable even for level 100 players such as ornaments with double channeling stats. The Old Heaven's Tear rings are often an option for many players that can't afford the more expensive ones.

The Old Heaven's Tear daily quests also reward players with special materials that can be used to craft powerful gold Old Heaven's Tear gold gear pieces. However, these gear pieces have become rather obsolete due having similar options that are much easier to farm.

Players that didn't farm Quicksand Maze gear can obtain a very nice level 95 belt by completing the Old Heaven's Tear quest line and unlocking all maps up to the Moonshade Desert. This belt is good enough to be used at level 100 until players can farm something better such as the Warsong Barrier belt.

Quicksand Maze[edit | edit source]

If players previously farmed level 85 Quicksand Maze gear, they can choose to keep it all the way to level 100, especially if they have invested some shards and refines in it, while farming other gear sets in preparation for level 100.

Lunar Glade[edit | edit source]

The level 95 Lunar Glade gear is another option, but it is usually for those planning to farm the Lunar Glade version of Nirvana Gear as this gear set is not very good and not worth the effort of farming. There are two types of Lunar Glade gear: the green gear and stronger version, gold gear.

There are, however, two Lunar Glade gold rings that are worth obtaining: the magic Sign of Antiquity: Chaos and the physical Sign of Frost: Chaos. They are often the end goal of casual players that cannot afford the more expensive options at level 100. These rings are usually obtained from chance packs from the Boutique or other players who sell them.

Retired Equipment[edit | edit source]

  • Previously players could acquire a level 90 Attendance Ring from the Roll Call daily quest, however this event has since been retired. Players can still exchange their Attendance Sheets for this ring if they have any available.
  • Previously the Morai Quest Chain would award players with a level 95 weapon, but this reward was removed after the Wings of Rebirth expansion.

Level 100 - 105[edit | edit source]

Some endgame gear pieces have low level requirements so they were added in the appropriate level ranges. It is advisable to backtrack and check the gear options of lower level ranges to make sure you haven't missed anything.

Nirvana Gear[edit | edit source]

At level 100 players can begin farming their Nirvana Gear. The final cast of Nirvana gear is considered to be the best all-purpose gear players can farm without the need of Boutique items. All materials required to craft the gear are acquired through dungeons and in-game events. Nirvana gear is usually the end goal of casual or non-competitive players. It is not strong enough to compete with Rank 9 geared players so this gear is not used by competitive PvP players, but there are players that use this gear in PvP.

Morai Gear[edit | edit source]

Players can farm level 100 Morai gear through the Endless Universe starting at level 95. This gear set is for PvE only. It is not particularly strong, but it can be a decent temporary gear set to use while working for something better.

At level 101 players can farm a better version of Morai gear through the three Orders. The Morai gear from the Orders can be further upgraded through the Quicksand Maze. This version of Morai gear is great for PvE but can be tedious to farm, especially due the lack of players farming Quicksand Maze, so players usually opt for Nirvana gear instead.

Dragonbreath Weapons[edit | edit source]

Players can work towards their Dragonbreath Weapons, whose final casts makes them the strongest weapons in game. Dragonbreath weapons are generally for the competitive PvP players who aim to go for the fourth cast or higher. Casual players can farm up to second cast without having to invest a lot into their Homestead.

The second cast of Dragonbreath weapons are comparable to the final cast of Nirvana weapons. They can be an alternative weapon path for players that wish to have the option for further upgrading their weapon in the future since Nirvana weapons stop at third cast. The third cast of Dragonbreath weapons require some investment in the Homestead, making it considerably more expensive than second cast. It is possible for players to farm the third cast as free to play, but it will require a lot of time and effort. The fourth and fifth casts of Dragonbreath weapons are very expensive. They can be farmed as free to play by players that are successful merchants, but they are otherwise mainly for players that can afford to charge Gold.

Rank 8[edit | edit source]

At level 100 players can obtain Rank 8 gear, which has two stages. The base Rank 8 gear includes a weapon, body wear and leg wear. Those gear pieces are decent enough to be used as temporary gear, but they are outclassed by level 100 Morai gear due to Rank 8 not being a complete set.

The second cast of Rank 8 includes a weapon and a complete armor set. It was originally farmed through Faction Trials, but now players farm it through Nation Wars. The stats on the second cast of Rank 8 are random, but they can be re-rolled making this a good gear set for players that want to customize their gear for specific builds and preferences. It can be an alternative to Nirvana gear, but many players find the randomized stats not worth the trouble and time it takes to obtain the ideal set. With the right stats, high refines and high level shards, the second cast of Rank 8 can somewhat compete with Rank 9. However, it is not worth the investment.

The third cast of Rank 8 can be farmed in the Quicksand Maze. With the right stats, high refines and high level shards, it can compete with Rank 9, but it is usually not worth the time and investment. It is a particularly tedious gear set to obtain because it is hard to find players to farm Quicksand Maze with.

Rank 9[edit | edit source]

At level 101, players can obtain Rank 9 gear from the Boutique. Players that are successful merchants or successful at farming in game can obtain Rank 9 gear as free to play by buying the required materials from other players or buying Gold through the Auction House to access the Boutique items.

The third cast of Rank 9 armor was the best armor in the game until the Twilight Warsoul Gear was released. It is still the most commonly used gear by all competitive PvP players. The third cast of Rank 9 weapons are very strong and widely used by competitive players, but they are outclassed by the higher casts of Dragonbreath Weapons.

There is a fourth cast of Rank 9, but it only benefits a select few classes so it is not considered a real upgrade. Some players choose to get the fourth cast Rank 9 weapons or belts, but most players keep their third cast Rank 9 gear because it is superior in most cases.

Twilight Warsoul[edit | edit source]

Players can obtain Twilight Warsoul gear at level 105. The equipment is grade 17, the highest grade of armor in the game. There are three types for each armor type (heavy armor, light armor, arcane armor) and three casts for each armor type. The first and second casts consist of a chest piece, pants, boots, and bracers. The third cast consists of all of these and also includes a helmet.

Twilight Warsoul gear, minus the helmet, can be crafted primarily using materials from Twilight Temple Revisited from scratch. You can also craft it with lesser materials and Rank 8 (Third Cast) or Rank 9 (Fourth Cast) gear. This allows players to transfer their shards and refines. The first cast of Twilight Warsoul requires Reshape Crystals which can be purchased from the Boutique. The helmet can only be crafted using a Moon Stone of Punishment from the Treasure System, but players can also choose to use the stone along with helmets like the Rank 8 (Third Cast) helmets, ★★★Crown of Madness, or ★★★Crown of Apex to create these helmets and transfer their old helmet's refines, shards, and engravings.

The first and second casts of Twilight Warsoul gear are weaker than Rank 9 third cast, but stronger than Rank 8 third cast. Twilight Warsoul can be infused with Twilight Souls to change its attributes and with the right customization these gear sets may compete with Rank 9 third cast.

The third cast of Twilight Warsoul is on par with Rank 9 third cast, but players will lose desired set bonuses such as the +100 strength/dexterity/magic bonus. However, just like with the previous casts, Twilight Souls can be used to change its attributes and surpass Rank 9 third cast. Players can also use the Warsoul Repository to change the set bonus they use, though Rank 9 third cast is currently not available in the repository. Due to this, it is generally advised for players to make Twilight Warsoul gear from scratch or from Rank 8 third cast in order to avoid permanently losing the Rank 9 third cast gear and set bonuses. The third cast of Twilight Warsoul with the proper Twilight Soul customization is currently the best armor set in the game.

Arigora Colosseum[edit | edit source]

At level 100 players can compete in the Arigora Colosseum to begin farming the best capes and rings that exist in the game. The cape and the ring have five casts each. Players can craft the first stage of the ring and cape for only 100 Arigora Coins. They are decent cheap gear pieces if the alternative options are too expensive, or they can be used as temporary gear until they farm or buy something better.

Although the cape can be farmed from scratch, players can choose to skip a step and upgrade their Wings of Ascension cape or Heaven Raveger cape instead. The ring has multiple upgrade options including: the Sky Cover, the Cloud Stir, the Reawakening VI Finger Bead rings or the Nation Wars rings.

The Crown of Madness can also be upgraded to a Crown of Apex. It is not a true upgrade, but it merely removes the set bonus from the Wings of Ascension and adds it to the helmet itself so that players will not have to break the set bonus when they upgrade their Wings of Ascension cape to the Arigora version.

Thursday Night Fights[edit | edit source]

Players can obtain a powerful helmet through the Thursday Night Fights PvP event. The final room spawns a chest and the person who manages to dig it will obtain an item that can be exchanged for a heavy, light or arcane helmet. This helmet is the endgame option of all players that cannot afford a Crown of Madness or players playing support classes that prefer a more defensive helmet. Players can also farm an identical helmet, but with a different name, through the Faction Base.

Miscellaneous Gear[edit | edit source]

At this level players can use the Celestial Resonance necklaces and the Exotic Chaos belts, which are currently some of the best ornaments in the game. These ornaments are crafted using the Jaden Crystal, which is a rare item obtained from chance packs in the Boutique or bought from other players. If players cannot afford these ornaments, they can farm a Puzzle Cube necklace and a Warsong Barrier belt, which are great ornaments for level 100 despite being available as early as level 80. Rank 9 players will use their Rank 9 belt instead of a Warsong Barrier belt, however, due to the set bonus.

The Sky Cover and Cloud Stir rings are available at this level. They can be farmed through the Public Quest, but players usually obtain them from chance packs from the Boutique. These rings can be upgraded at the Nation Wars forges or using the rare pack item Reawakening VI Finger Bead. The upgrades of these rings were considered the best until they received an additional upgrade path through the Arigora Colosseum in the PWI Neverfall expansion.

At this level players will also work towards obtaining a Crown of Madness and a Wings of Ascension. They are originally level 60 gear, but are actually meant for the high level players who can afford buying them or the competitive PvP players that can participate in PvP events.
