We have a new feature coming soon, The Armory! In addition to the Armory we have a new item that is available now, Gear Templates. Read all about both below.
The Armory makes use of your past gear sets to give you an overall bonus to power and specific buffs!
Gear that you add from your inventory to Collections will unlock persistent buffs. Having more pieces at higher levels and higher quality all contribute to the power of your buffs. All the bonuses unlocked from every collection are active as long as the pieces remain there on display. While gear is displayed in your Armory, it cannot be worn for bonuses.
Each gear set in the Armory is its own Collection. Each Collection can award three specific combat buffs if you are displaying gear of the required quality level. Each Collection buff lists the required equipment to activate that buff. You may use higher quality levels of gear than the buff requires. Each gear piece that you display in your Armory Collections effects both the level of your Collection and the amount of the buff you receive.
How do I use the Armory?
You can access your Armory from the Crafting Hub. Click on your Smithy to open your crafting panel and select the new Armory option at the bottom of the screen below Equipment and Materials.
When you open the Armory you will see a list of past gear sets that provide Collection bonuses. Gear sets are listed in order of release, newest to oldest. To display equipment in a Collection and unlock bonuses, tap “Manage” and then select the slot you want to fill with gear you already have in your equipment.
You can also craft pieces of gear to fill in a Collection directly from your Armory. Open a Collection. Choose the category of gear you would like to add, we will use a helm for this example. Click on the helm in the gear Collection details page. If you have the helm already in your inventory, you can add it this way; if you do not, clicking on the helm will bring you to the correct recipe so that you may craft the item. Additionally, clicking on the button to the left of the Collection name, that has the trophy icon, will bring you to the forge recipes for that Collection.
The power contributed to your overall power by a Collection is listed to the right of that Collection's name. It is indicated by the crossed swords icon. Bonuses gained from your Armory Collections are included in the Overall category of the Stats tab (found to the right of your Profile.
You may not have two of the same pieces of gear in a Collection, even if they differ in level and/or quality. If you add a different version of a piece already displayed, the current piece will be sent back to your inventory.
Updates to the Smithy
Craftable items in your Smithy will now also show their Collection score value. This will allow you to make the best choices about which pieces to craft. The “Item Detail” panel will show you how your Collection score changes with different quality levels of gear.
We have added a new item that makes completing Collections and crafting higher levels of gear easier: Gear Templates. Gear templates take the place of the piece of gear you would normally sacrifice to create another piece of gear. They're great for filling in the missing pieces in your Collections!
Gear Templates are currently available in packs. You can also find Gear Templates in your Store tab under the new Special category of item types. You can purchase them for gold here, or at the point of crafting a new piece of gear in the crafting menu. After purchase, Gear Templates can be found in your Smithy under “Equipment” inventory, they are not included in My Items.
