Gear Guide: City Assault Attack Equipment Comparison

With RoC coming to an end, many players are returning to their home realm wielding new, Legendary pieces of equipment. The advent of the Guaranteed Legendary Chests has thrown a wrench into the long-term crafting plans of many, welcome though it may be, as players find themselves with Legendary gear they never expected to get. How will this affect your current gear setup and pre-sets? If you consider yourself an offensive player and spend most of your time in the game attacking other empires, you’ve come to the right place.

In this article we compare all of the best equipment pieces used when attacking other players, including:

 

  • Magitek Alpha
  • Infernian
  • Hydraean
  • Glacian
  • Archaean
  • Mercenary Commander

 

 

It’s almost always better to mix and match pieces from different gear sets rather than using an entire set. You’ll want the very best equipment available, but this, of course, will depend on the quality of gear you are able to craft / purchase in Moogle Market / randomly win in a chest. For the purpose of this guide, all equipment stats listed are for Legendary quality only.

Honorable Mention

These gear sets appear very early on in the game and no longer offer any worthwhile combat boosts. Still, the Mythic Forge boosts gained from collecting the entire Legendary gear set will give you an added competitive edge when facing off with strong players.

  • Arbiter
  • Winged Assassin
  • Grim Reaper
  • Aranea’s
