Sunshine Daydream's Guide
to Crafted Armor Sets


PDF available here

Many players wear 5 pieces of one set and several pieces of another to fill out their armor and weapon slots. These sets are all bind on equip, so can be made for you by another player if you've not yet completed sufficient research.

At low levels one should wear 5 pieces of heavy armor, 1 piece of medium armor (hands), and 1 piece of light armor (waist); this provides the most armor rating while leveling all 3 armor skill trees. Once you reach the point that you can take advantage of passive armor skills that require 5 or more pieces in a given weight, switch to focus on your chosen armor weight. When making this switch, to keep maximum armor rating and continue training other armor skill lines use:

Overall Armor ClassAlso UseWith
Heavy Armor FocusMedium HandsLight Waist
Medium Armor FocusHeavy ChestLight Waist
Light Armor FocusHeavy ChestMedium Legs

Some traits (i.e. infused or reinforced) are best on large armor pieces that truly enhance the item stats such as chest, legs, & head. Other traits (i.e. divines or sturdy) give the same benefit regardless of the armor's size so are often placed on shoulders, hands, waist, & feet. For low level gear the training trait is often placed on all items.

For crafted sets, remember that traits can only be added to armor or weapons at the time of creation and require that you have previously researched the chosen trait on that same item type. Also, crafted sets require completed research on several traits (the number varies with the set) for each item you wish to create as part of the set; this is why crafters must research traits beyond those that are typically desired on crafted goods.

Which set is right often depends on your chosen role and main resource pool:

Currently the armor sets that drop in game are stronger, but craftable items can be readily available and still perform solidly aside from elite or end-game activites.
