How to Craft the Dreadmist Gear Set
There are brand new crafting materials you’ll need to collect in order to craft pieces of the Dreadmist gear set.
Although Dreadmist gear requires some crafting materials you probably already have, such as Royal Fabric, you will also need to acquire one new and rare crafting material that is unique to each piece of equipment.
The new crafting materials include Star Fragment, Midnight Fabric, Black Salt, Poison Mushroom, and Truesilver Metal. These crafting materials can only be obtained through one of three ways:
- By attacking Malbodoom monsters
- By gathering on Malbodoom lair tiles
- In Dreadmist gear chests
It’s pretty obvious that, in order to craft high-quality Dreadmist gear, we need to slay as many Malbodoom monsters as possible.
This can quickly become a frustrating endeavor for several reasons. First, Dreadmist crafting materials do not have a great drop rate. If you only need one more material to craft your desired level of Dreadmist, you will often find that Malbodooms are dropping every material except the one you want. The Lucky Strike ability under Hero Research may help, but requires Exalted Hero Tomes.
Malbodooms require way more MP to attack than regular monsters. This makes it difficult to get enough hits in to actually kill one or receive as many drops from each hit. Make sure you have your MP Cost Reduction in Hero and Adventure Research as high as possible to help you save valuable MP.
Additionally, high level Marlodooms do not always drop high level crafting materials. Check out this report from a level 7 Malbodoom.
This is a numbers game, so in order to collect as many crafting materials as possible, you need to hit as many Malbodooms as possible. Try hitting level 1-4 monsters to save yourself some MP and get more hits in.
Dreadmist gear is a cut above the rest when it comes to monster slaying. In fact, we would even be willing to say that it makes Beastmaster gear completely irrelevant, unless your goal is to get the set bonus. Despite crafting materials having a very low drop rate, your best bet to get this gear is to attack as many Malbodooms as possible.
This equipment will certainly help deal more damage to Realm Bosses and take down even stronger monsters to come!
