Epic Seven: Equipment to Keep

Updated: Jun 4

This guide is meant to help players decide equipment is worth keeping.


Before diving in to clean up your gears, you need to consider a few things:

1. What heroes you want to build?

2. What stats do your heroes need?


If players go into this process not knowing what stats your hero needs, you will be wasting a lot of resources.

Now that we have a general sense of what some of the more common roles need, we can decide on what equipment we should keep!


General Rule for Keeping Equipment


1. Keep the Gear if it has 2 or more of the stats that is desired

2. Keep the gear if it has good stats regardless of the Sets

3. Set a Rarity of gears that you want to keep. Keep only the gears that matches the rarity that you decided on

4. For Heroic and Epic Rarity and item level 85 or above, keep Speed Sub-stats


Lets go in a bit more detail to explain what each point means....


1. Keep the Gear if it has 2 or more of the stats that is desired


When you only have a limited amount of gear to equip on a character, you need to maximize each piece of gear. However, you may not want to just seek the perfect gear because it might take way too long to gear each character. I think in general if an equipment has 2 desirable sub-stats on the gear would be a great start.

Some examples of gears we would keep under this rulee:



We think the Rare Weapon is pretty self-explanatory with Crit Hit Chance + Crit Hit damage both highly desirable stats for Damage Dealers and Bruisers. It is on a Crit Chance Set too.


The Heroic Weapon also has Crit Hit Chance and Crit Hit Damage, and even though Effect Resistance is not desirable, we still keep it since we have 66% chance to increase both Crit Hit Chance and Crit Hit Damage.


You may notice, we apply this sub stat rule to Necklace, Ring and Boots too. The Boots above had Defense % as main stat and two desirable Health % and Effect Resistance Sub Stats. For Boots especially we almost always seek for desirable Main stat + 2 desirable sub stats before we keep them, with exception to Speed boots.



2. Keep the gear if it has good stats regardless of the Sets


This is for Early Game players only.

We noticed people that force Sets even though the stats on the gear is terrible. I would say every gear that has great stat will eventually have a use for early and mid game players. We recommend keeping all these gears with great Sub Stats. In the example below, we kept a 'Hit Set' boots because simply it has great combination of stats. So we want to emphasize that for early game players, Keep the Gear if it has 2 or more of the stats that is desired





3. Set a Rarity of gears that you want to keep.


This point is highly dependent on where you are in the game. If you just started Wyvern, we would always keep the Rare (blue) gears that have two starting stats that are desirable. If you are later in game, you can decide if you want just Heroic (purple) or Epic (red) gear and ignore all the Rare (blue) or below gears.



4. For Heroic and Epic Rarity and item level 85 or above, keep Speed Sub-stats

Also we only suggest doing this after you can clear Wyvern 11 or above.

Here you have to forget everything we discussed previously. You should try to keep items with speed sub stats so you have a chance to roll it to higher. I usually only keep item level 85 Heroic gears that have speed sub stat.

Prepare your eyes let us show you some ugly gears that we are forced to upgrade because of speed substats:


We want you to focus on the Heroic Necklace, there is no way that we would keep this Necklace as it has undesirable Main stat and the sub-stats do not have any synergy at all. The only reason we kept it and even spent charms upgrading it is because of Speed Speed Speed. When we get this kind of gear, we will upgrade it to +3 or +6 to see if speed gets upgraded. If speed was not upgraded, we sell it or use it to enhance another equipment and move on.

Sez's Tip: In Late Game, we will need to start to be more selective. Speed Stats with correct stats should be prioritized. Blindly upgrading Speed only applies to players that want to focus on PVP Cleave Teams.
