Machine zone have recently released set bonus research which applies specifically to the new set gear now available in game.
If you have ever played the old hack and slash games like the Diablo series, you will be familiar with the concept of set items. Effectively a set of items are simply a group of armor, usually with the same prefix, that when equipped together rewards the player with additional bonuses over and above the individual items.
In game of war your Hero is awarded with additional bonuses when an entire set of equipment is worn, plus one accessory from the set i.e. helm, armor, foot armor, weapon and accessory (Normal Set).
Further bonuses are granted if all three accessories are worn from the same set (Full Set). Note that to count as a set, all items must be of legendary quality.
The image to the right shows the bonuses for a full Legendary Fire Age Cavalry Set. Note that these set bonuses are in addition to the stats on the individual pieces of equipment.
So far five new research abilities have been released (with a lot more abilities in the tree still locked) which boosts the set bonuses from a normal set of equipment. You need to research the set bonus for each slot in order to receive the set bonus.
i.e. to unlock the set bonuses in the Legendary Fire Age Cavalry Set, you would need to research Set Bonus (5) with Normal Helm, Normal Armor, Normal Weapon, Normal Foot Armor and Normal Accessory to level 1.
Increasing by further levels increases the overall set bonus, but in each case you need to research all 5 slots before the bonus is unlocked.
Check out the Set bonus research currently released on our Set Bonus research page here.
Specialized Bonus hasn’t been released yet, but it appears to allow you to customize further bonuses on your set items. For example this could work by allowing you to choose to increase your cavalry, ranged or infantry attack. There appears to be a reset specialization button to allow players to change their set bonuses for different situations.
There are currently four different types of sets in Game of War which are:
We will keep you posted with future updates as more set items are released.
