From the wiki:

On your first playthrough of the game, you will find blueprints up to the Sky equipment (unless the player opens a Golden chest in the secret room activated by Calypso's Compass, which can give higher-level equipment), but the best equipment can only be found in the Dungeon or by defeating mini-bosses. In NG+, after beating the final boss for the first time, all of the equipment save the dark equipment becomes available; you will mostly find the new equipment in chests, but will rarely find blueprints for older equipment instead, especially once you have found all the new equipment.

The blueprints for the Dark equipment can be found after defeating the final boss in NG+ by fighting mini-bosses such as Botis, Barbatos & Amon, Stolas & Focalor, and Sallos. They can also be found in NG+ using Calypso's Compass.

I'm on my first playthrough, I already defeated the four bosses but didn't touch the final boss yet because I didn't have all pieces of Sky equipment yet, and since I'd like to get the all equipment achievement I was worried that - as per the wikia - advancing to the second playthrough would prevent me from doing that.

However, even before I completed the Sky equipment, I started getting Retribution equipment from The Land of Darkness! Even more, now I got a piece of Imperial equipment from a regular chest in The Land of Darkness! I'm confused because this is contrary to what is said by the wikia.

When can I safely defeat the final boss and advance to the second playthrough without being worried that this will prevent me from getting some lower level pieces of equipment?

  • This doesn't answer your Q (I don't know the answer) but when I played, I didn't find the sets aquired all in a row. So just because you get different pieces, doesn't mean you won't get the older stuff as far as I know. You just have to be persistant.

  • Doesn't that wikia quote say that when you advance to NG+, all equipment (except dark) gets unlocked automatically? Commented Sep 12, 2018 at 10:25

    @MartinEnder Perhaps. My understanding was that once I advance to NG+, I can FIND all equipment except dark. Because otherwise, the rest of the sentence "you will mostly find the new equipment in chests, but will rarely find blueprints for older equipment instead, especially once you have found all the new equipment" wouldn't make much sense, would it?

Having all pieces of Retribution set but one, all previous sets completed and even quite a few pieces from later sets, I defeated final boss and advanced to NG+.

Once there, I started getting worried: I already got almost whole Slayer set, but still couldn't find the last piece of Retribution set.

But now I finally got the last piece of Retribution set from Botis in Maya.

My guess is, the quote from Wikia is outright wrong.
