Set Bonus

When the specified quota of unique items from a set are equipped, additional effects come into play. Some set bonuses have only two required items while other set bonuses may require six. See each set's description for details.

Assuming all the required pieces can be equipped simultaneously, characters may benefit from more than one set bonus—either from different sets or within the same subset. E.g., a character enjoying the Might Quintet bonus also gains the Trio & Quartet bonuses. (But remember, +level effects never stack.)

When a set bonus is achieved by equipping a weapon, shield, orb, or anything held in (not worn on) the hand, the hand-held item is "locked in" for that mode of combat. Therefore:

  • If you equip a hand-held item in a melee slot to fulfill a set bonus, you must keep that specific hand-held item equipped when engaging in melee combat.
  • If you equip a hand-held item in a ranged slot to fulfill a set bonus, you must keep that specific hand-held item equipped when engaging in physical ranged combat.

You may temporarily swap one or both hand-held set-piece items (either melee for ranged or ranged for melee) and maintain the set's bonus. However, the bonuses granted by the individual "lost" item(s) won't apply. E.g., a ranger using Scepter, Orb, and Boots of Might to gain a level may swap out the scepter and orb to use a ranged weapon, but may not use any other melee weapons. During the swap-out, the ranger loses the +2 Strength bonus granted by the Orb of Might, but maintains the +1 level granted by the Might set.

To qualify for a set bonus, the set's quota must be filled with unique items if the items are Ultra Rare or lower in rarity. E.g., a ranger may wield two +1 Mithral Long Swords, but they only count as one when it comes to qualifying for the Mithral set bonus. However, if both of the set weapons are either Relics (★) or Legendaries, they count as two items toward the set's quota.

**Only affects cast healing spells (see "Healing Bonus Note" note below), not special powers, scrolls, wands, etc. A "special power" is not a "spell". Rule of thumb: if it's not printed on the character card under a section titled "Spells", it's not a spell.
Healing Bonus Note: This bonus is for spells cast by the healer, not spells cast on the healer--unless the healer and the target are the same person (self-healing.)
Multi-Target Note: Multi-target attacks/heals get a pool of bonus damage/healing to be allocated among the eligible recipients as the attacker/caster sees fit. It does not grant the full bonus to each target.

Affects melee, missile (including alchemical weapons), and spells, but not special powers or items (scrolls, wands, etc.)
