How to Get Epic Gear in Order and Chaos
Epic Gear Guide
Order And Chaos Online provides many ways to get epics. How you go about getting your epics will depend on how you play the game.
- PVP players have to fight for their gear in the arena.
- PVE players must fully level crafting AND get drops from dungeons.
Some PVE drops are blue pieces that you need to craft into epics using your crafting skills.
Other drops are already epic, such as weapons, boots, and specialty gear.
PVE Epic gear comes in the form of tiers. In game, players refer to each series of epic gear as T1, T2, T3, and T4 and more. New tiers are released as new updates are released.
The current sets are as follows:
Many players rush to level 70, others instant level, and miss out on tier one and two epics. LVL 60 epics used to be a big deal, back when the level cap was much lower. Now they are just good for achievements.
Some players PVP for blue 2.5 gear. This is PVP gear but works well in level 70 dungeons. Some of these 2.5 drops from bosses in the dungeons. You can also get them from the super secret chests in a certain PVP zone. Of course, if you are a low level on a busy server you need a war free bond or a good hiding place.
PvP players gear is called season gear. Season 3 gear, commonly referred to as S3.
The following sets are viable in PVP
Each set gets a little better, and each set has special bonuses to make you more powerful. Don't be wasteful with your honor points, S3 gear is very expensive.
Epics drop in all dungeons, but most people go after sets because they offer unique bonuses once you equip 2 or more pieces. You can even combine different sets to carry more than one set bonus.
If your goal is T3 (from MZL/AGL) or T4, then you must level crafting ASAP.
If you are struggling in the dungeons it is more fun to FB farm for epic gear.
If dungeons are not your thing, then you can work for your PvP epic gear. Learning to fight other players can be as difficult as dungeons! Since both dungeons and PvP have a cap, you can a little of both. Doing both helps prevent boredom.
Example of Epic Drops
T1 Epics in OAC
Tier 1 epics are crafted from blue gear that drop in the first three dungeons. They can also be bought in Cliff Watch for souls. Some people call Cliff Watch "The Angel Place".
While most people skip these epics, many go back for them to obtain a shirt with gear mastery.
To see the epic shirts go to Achievements, dungeon and look for the one that is called King of (insert dungeon name here).
The T1 and T2 vendors were in Greenmont for awhile (across form GM graveyard). Later they were moved to Cliff Watch. I liked this move because it locates most soul quests, vendors and angles together.
To get T1 epics for your toon you need:
- the blue gear
- the pattern
- the materials
Crafting can be farmed or you can use runes in the Nick Shop to buy slabstone tablets.
Either way, to get non-PvP epics you must have legendary crafting for your class.
The patterns for tier 1 epics drop in the same dungeons that the blue t1 gear drops in.
- Knahswahs Prison (Legend)
- Relics Key (Legend)
- Young's Diaries Relm / Estairs Temple (Legend)
The bosses drop the blue T1 gear. They also drop Essence of Swamp, Essence of Death and Essence of Eristar. You need these materials to make T1 gear.
The essences can also be bought in the Nick Shop. And all these epics can be bought with runes. If you buy souls then you can spend them in Cliff Watch.
The patterns drop from the (mobs) enemies. They are not bound, so they can be purchased on the auction house.
Some patterns can be bought with soul signets. Each dungeon has a pattern vendor someplace close by. I think it is better to wait for the drop or buy them on the AH, than pay with souls.
See OAC-Head for an official example of T1 gear.
Tier 2 Epics in OAC
Tier 2 epics can be found in:
- Sailien Palace (upper and lower) (legend)
- Eloidons Horizon (legend)
EHL is home to some other surprising drops, too.
Remember, to get epics and the blues for tier sets you must be in legendary dungeons. Once you get to level 60, it is worthwhile to run these dungeons.
The bosses are important once again. Like tier 1, the blue gear drops from them. The other mats and patterns will drop from the mobs (enemies).
You can buy the some patterns from a merchant in The Gates of Sailen, just outside of the dungeon.
Warning: EHL and some other dungeons will not let players under level 70 walk in, but will let them que in with level 70s. Other dungeons will not let lower level dungeon players que, but they can walk in. I don't think it is supposed to work that way, but sometimes it does.
T3 Epics in OAC
Tier 3 epics are the most sought after epics for level 70s. Even though Tier 4 is out, you need either full S3 or T3 to defeat the dungeons that drop T4.
T3 Epics drop in:
- Metal Ziggurt
- Abyss of Limitless Gears
The boots and weapons drop as epics, and the rest drops in the form of blue gear.
Like Tier 1 and Tier 2, the blue must be crafted into epics with legendary crafting skills.
The blues/purples drop from bosses, and the gears (mats) drop from them too.
You will also need to collect some mats from the world. In game runes (powerful, exquisite, purified) are the hardest mat to get.
You can get additional gears from level 70 daily quests found in Generators Temple.
You will need these because, unlike T1 and T2, teir 3 patterns don't drop. You must buy them with gears.
To craft your T3 Set you are going to get comfortable working with Epochs, one of the mats.
You must buy the pattern for Essence of Epochs (one of the materials you need for epics). These patterns are sold at the legendary pattern vendors in Generators Temple.
The vendors who sell blue 2.5 patterns can be found in Coldring and outside of MZL.
Epochs are one of the materials needed to craft your epics.
They drop from the last bosses of MZL (Metal Ziggurt), ALGL (Abyss of limitless Gears), and from Flame Madness. You can purchase them in the Nick Shop, and earn them from achievments. I have also seen them sold on the black market.
To craft a blue to an epic T3, or any, you must unequip it first, buy the pattern and have enough Epochs and other mats.
Then go to your crafting in your spells and produce it. The blue will be replaced with the Epic gear, and can be immediately worn.
Once upon a time you would lose all the gems you had placed in the blue gear. Strange thing was that the last time I upgraded a piece, all of the gems were automatically removed and put back in my bag.
PVP Epics and Vendors
PvP epics in OAC
Players can also get epics by participating in the arena. There are special merchants in Greenmont who sell these epics.
PvP means player vs player, and to buy PvP epics you must earn honor points, a special kind of currency used to buy PVP gear.
The arena point currency will be used to buy your PvP epic gear.
To earn arena points you must play in the arena against other players.
Types of PVP Gear
There are currently four types of PVP gear, with one set being an inferior set a blues (not the 2.5).
As of right now, there are three sets of PVP gear that players want. The goal is to become full S3, but to get there you will need to choose one of its predecessors.
Season 3 PVP gear is purchased with honor points AND you must have a specific 2s ranking for each piece.
To get that rank, you will need to choose one of the other two sets so that you will be strong enough to win matches.
The three sets are:
S2 and S3 are epics, but S2.5 are suitable PVP gear (and cost fewer points). There are two sets of blues, the inferior set I have not listed. The S2.5 go buy different names but the vendors are standing next to the S2 and S3 vendors.
Season 2 Gear
Season 2 gear is an epic set of gear with set bonuses as 2 and 4 pieces. Some people get 2/6 S2 and 4/6 S2.5.
Buying S2 gear is confusing. In Order and Chaos Online Season 2 epic PVP gear is bought with Arena Points.
Back in the days of old, we earned Arena points, not Honor points. Eventually, Gameloft changed the types of points earned in PVP.
Now we earn Honor points. Honor points are then traded for arena points from a "bread" vendor in both PVP areas in Greenmont.
Honor point to Arena point conversion:
500 Honor Points = 1,500 Arena Points
When you spend honor points an Arena point emblem is placed in your bag, click it and the Arena points will be added to your total.
At this point you can spend your Arena Points on S2 gear.
Season 2.5 Gear
Season 2.5 PVP gear was not introduced to Order and Chaos until after season 2. There is forever a debate on whether or not a player should use S2, S2.5 or both.
Many players have no issue ranking up to S3 with S2.5 gear.
It really depends on the class, player and how much time you have to PVP. Since some S2.5 drops in higher dungeons, such as FML, MZL and AGL, it ends up costing fewer points.
S2.5 has a set bonus (resilience) at 4 pieces.
S2.5 costs honor points, there will be no need to trade Honor Points for arena points.
Season 3 Gear
Season 3 gear is the best PVP gear in Order and Chaos Online (for now). It has 2, 4 and 6 set piece bonuses. It has tons more armor, stats and superior bonuses.
Gameloft makes you work for this amazing gear, which set you to godliness status. Not only must you earn the points, you must have high enough ranking to purchase the piece.
Ranking is fairly simple, if you win you gain ranking (unless the opposing team has a really low rank), and if you lose a match you lose ranking.
This means you will have to get to a position where you can win enough matches to get the ranking that you need to purchase the gear piece that you want.
I highly recommend that you go for your S3 pieces before you go for your S3 accessories.
Epic gear can help you be very powerful. Later dungeons, with powerful epic drops, require T3, T4 or PvP epics.
If you want to maximize your gaming pleasure, then try playing a tood all the way to 70. Stop and get that old T1 and T2 sets. At the very least they are fun to show off.
