Gear Powering has come to Final Fantasy XV: A New Empire, bringing players a new way to strengthen gear and dominate their opponents. How does it work? Where are the materials necessary to Power Up? Let’s take a look.
Sanctum of Power
Powering up your Gear takes certain materials that are found either in Packs or the Sanctum of Power in the Guild Adventure Hall. Running the Sanctum of Power requires one Adventurer’s Contract, and it has 20 levels. Power Up Gear Chests contain the materials necessary to power up Gear. They require no additional keys to open.
In addition to the Power Up Gear Chests, the Sanctum of Power drops a multitude of Chests for the following Sets:
- Winged Assassin
- Grim Reaper
- Chief Inquisitor
- Mercenary Commander
- Magitek Alpha
Essentially, chests for every current Gear set in the game can be found in the Sanctum of Power! For tips and tricks on running the Guild Adventurer Hall, click here and watch out for that Toad! https://www.ffxvanehub.com/guides/guild-adventurers-hall-strategy-and-tips/
Each gear set requires different materials to Power Up. Powering up gear is done in the Mythic Forge under Power Up Legendary Gear. The maximum level appears to be +20.
Below is a list of the Gear Sets available to Power Up, the required Materials, and their Bonuses.
