Do armors have tiers as to what stats they can have? I see a lot of high level people running around with pristine gear and sometimes leather. Are these armors just better stat wise or are all types equal? (Chain, Mail, Leather, Plate and Pristine)

1 Answer 1


Armor types are exactly the same. A pristine helmet with +50 on each stat serves an identical use as a leather helm with +50 on each stat. Additionally there is no "better" armor type at a given level; leather armor with good stats has just as much of a chance to spawn as pristine armor with good stats.

Armor types exist for set bonuses. If you wear all the same armor type (e.g. all leather armor), you get a 25% bonus to all stats on low tier armor. The set bonus increases with higher tier armor, up to Ultimate gear at 40%.

Keep in mind that you cannot mix Godly and below with Mythical and above.

  • I was asking if pristine gear usually spawns with higher stats than the other types, and if there was some sort of hierarchy to this. It was worded weirdly. Commented Oct 25, 2013 at 16:29
  • There is no armor 'hierarchy'. Updated answer to reflect that.
