Nirvana Gear

From PWpedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Nirvana gear is level 100 equipment players can farm through Palace of Nirvana, Nation Wars, Warsong City and Lunar Glade. Nirvana gear includes Heavy Armor, Light Armor, Arcane Armor and weapons of all types. This gear is not class restricted so it can be used by any character that meets the level and attribute points requirements.

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.

Nirvana Gear Path[edit | edit source]

First and Second Cast[edit | edit source]

Nirvana gear forges outside the Palace of Nirvana.

The path towards crafting Nirvana gear begins with Twilight Temple level 99 gold gear or Lunar Glade level 95 gold gear. The gear from Twilight Temple becomes bound once equipped and it cannot be traded. The bound status is retained in all subsequent Nirvana gear recasts. The gear from Lunar Glade is trade-able and retains this status in all subsequent Nirvana gear recasts.

In order to turn Twilight Temple or Lunar Glade gear into Nirvana gear, players must use Uncanny Crystals (for armor) and Rapture Crystals (for weapons) at the forges outside of Palace of Nirvana. Uncanny Crystals and Rapture Crystals were originally farmed in Palace of Nirvana, but Nation Wars made farming Crystals a lot easier. Supply Tokens obtained from Nation Wars can be exchanged for Crystals at the Nation War forges in north Archosaur.

Awakened Nirvana (Third Cast)[edit | edit source]

The final cast of Nirvana gear goes by many names amongst players. It is usually referred to as Nirvana third cast, Grade 16 (G16) Nirvana or (Tier 3) T3 Nirvana.

Once players have crafted the second cast of Nirvana gear they can proceed to Warsong City or Lunar Glade to farm Basic Badges (quest reward) and gear molds (boss drop) in order to craft the third and final cast of Nirvana gear. Apart from Basic Badges and the appropriate gear molds, Nirvana armor will require Essence of Defense from the last boss in the Lunar Glade and Nirvana weapons will require Essence of Offense from last boss in Warsong City. Forges for crafting the final cast of Nirvana gear are found at the entrances of Warsong City or Lunar Glade and they are called 'Rising Dawn Forge'.

Although Twilight Temple-Nirvana gear and Lunar Glade-Nirvana gear follow different paths, the final cast of Nirvana gear is the same for both. The only difference is whether the gear is bound to the account or remains trade-able. The Twilight Temple path is generally cheaper, but it is advised to follow the Lunar Glade path if the player wishes to be able to sell their Nirvana gear in the future.

Crafting Nirvana Armor[edit | edit source]

First and Second Cast[edit | edit source]

Nirvana armor comes in two paths; armor crafted from Twilight Temple level 99 gold gear or Lunar Glade level 95 gold gear. Nirvana armor crafted from Twilight Temple has a lower base defenses but comes with an extra stat of +4% defense. Lunar Glade derived armor has higher base defenses and is unbound. The forges for crafting the armor are located outside Palace of Nirvana.

  • Recast - takes 100 Uncanny Crystals. The stats of the base armor won't change after this step but it will become Grade 15 with the Grade 15 refine bonus and base defenses. This is commonly called as Nirvana armor first cast by the players.
  • Quench - takes 150 Uncanny Crystals. The stats are changed into Nirvana stats. At this step the armor will have a set bonus for having 2, 5, or 6 out of 6 pieces. This is commonly called as Nirvana armor second cast by the players.
  • Reforge - takes 2 Uncanny Crystals. This step is optional and any variable stats of the armor are rerolled. The sockets, gems, and refines are always transferred in this step.

Awakened Nirvana (Third Cast)[edit | edit source]

The Rising Dawn Forge for crafting the final cast of Nirvana armor is found at the entrances of Warsong City or Lunar Glade. There are two types of tabs called 'Twil.' and 'Lunar'. The 'Twil.' tab is for crafting armor from the Twilight Temple-Nirvana path and the 'Lunar' tab is for crafting armor from the Lunar Glade-Nirvana Path.

  • Nirvana second cast armor piece
  • Armor mold dropped from bosses in Warsong City or Lunar Glade
  • Essence of Defense x1 from Vile: Drake Fling, Vile: Relic of Wind or Vile: Primal Fear in Lunar Glade (the final boss depends on which Lunar path was opened)
  • Basic Badge x30

The final tab 'Re:Arm' is for re-rolling armor pieces for better stats or sockets. Refinement up to +3 will be transferred for free, but higher refinement or gems will require Chienkun Stones.

Crafting Nirvana Weapons[edit | edit source]

First and Second Cast[edit | edit source]

Nirvana weaponry also comes in two paths; weapons crafted from Twilight Temple level 99 gold weapons and Lunar Glade level 95 gold weapons. The forges for crafting the weapons are located outside Palace of Nirvana.

  • Recast - takes 100 Rapture Crystals. During this step players have the option of selecting a Grade 13 Nirvana weapon in the same family as the base weapon. For instance, players can make a Grade 13 Nirvana slingshot out of a gold Twilight Temple level 99 crossbow. The Grade 13 Nirvana weapon has the same stats base weapons but come with higher base damage and a Grade 15 refine. This is commonly called as Nirvana weapon first cast by the players.
  • Quench - takes 150 Rapture crystals or 230 Rapture Crystals for Twilight Temple level 100 weapons. The weapon becomes Grade 15 at this step with even higher base damage. The Grade 15 weapon is given 3 random stats during this phase, one from a primary pool of stats and two secondary stats from a separate pool. This is commonly called as Nirvana weapon second cast by the players.
  • Reforge - takes 7 Rapture Crystals. For this optional step all 3 attributes of the Grade 15 weapon are rerolled and randomized. The sockets, gems, and refines are always transferred in this step.

Awakened Nirvana (Third Cast)[edit | edit source]

The Rising Dawn Forge for crafting the final cast of Nirvana weapons is found at the entrances of Warsong City or Lunar Glade. There are two types of tabs called 'Twil.' and 'Lunar'. The 'Twil.' tab is for crafting weapons from the Twilight Temple-Nirvana path and the 'Lunar' tab is for crafting weapons from the Lunar Glade-Nirvana Path.

  • Nirvana second cast weapon
  • Weapon mold dropped from The Incacerate in Warsong City
  • Essence of Offense x1 from The Incacerate in Warsong City
  • Basic Badge x60

The final tab 'Re:Wpn' is for re-rolling armor pieces for better stats or sockets. Refinement up to +3 will be transferred for free, but higher refinement or gems will require Chienkun Stones.

Re-rolling weapons require the following materials:

  • Nirvana third cast weapon
  • Essence of Offense x1 from The Incacerate in Warsong City
  • Basic Badge x20

Chienkun Transferring[edit | edit source]

When crafting Nirvana gear players are given the option of using items called Chienkun Stones to transfer the refinement, sockets, or gems of the current gear. Chienkun Stones come from the Boutique.

The total amount of Chienkun Stones required is the sum of the Chienkun Stones required to keep refinement, sockets, and each gem. You can choose which of those you do not wish to transfer but transferring sockets is required to transfer gems. No Chienkun is required for transferring refinement or sockets during the Reforge step.
