Part 3/10 - Ground PvP Equipment (Including Furinkazan Set Analysis)

Updated: Jun 26

What gear is best for a Ground PvP General?


It appears that the Furinkazan Set is going to be the best option for most players and most of the time.


Below is a comparison of the six (6) best options for Ground PvP Gear:

 

Furinkazan Set availability:

  • The Furinkazan Boots and Bracers (Special/Ring Slot) were made available with the 2022 New Year Event which started on 12-31-2021.

  • The second two (2) pieces were made available with the 2022 Groundhog Day Event which started on 01-14-2022.

  • The final two (2) pieces were made available with the 2022 Spring Festival Event which started on 01-27-2022.

Note: The Furinkazan Katana has been released with last three (3) attributes matching AND in the same order as the Gentleman's Rapier Sword from the Freedom Hero Set. I believe this is a mistake and will be corrected at some point in the future.

 

The Mixed Civilization Set is going to be the most powerful option offensive available for Ground PvP Gear. However, the downside of making this switch is that there is less Enemy Debuff.


Most high-level players want their Ground PvP March to be the most powerful of their PvP Attack Marches. Honestly, I'm not sure if this set is better than the full Han Dynasty Set or not. It has more offensive fire-power, but losses some Enemy Debuff to get there.


I don't think it's a set-up I would play 100% of the time, but it's probably worth trying it out to see how it goes.

The strongest "Red Gear" Set appears to be a mixed set using four (4) Achaemenidae Set pieces and two (2) Ares Set pieces; the Achaemenidae Sword, Armor, Leg Armor and Boots, along with the Ares Helmet and Ring.


Note: This set remains a good choice, but it looks like the full Furinkazan Set is about 24% more powerful.

Note: The Ares Sword could also be substituted for the Achaemenidae Sword without losing much power.

 

The full Achaemenidae Set also remains a good choice, but it looks like the full Furinkazan Set is about 25% more powerful. For the Ground PvP Achaemenidae Set, there are choices to be made for the follow gear slots: the 1) Leg Armor, 2) Special (Ring), and 3) Armor Slots are all close choices.

  • For the 1) Leg Armor Slot, both options are good, but the Fearless Achaemenidae Leg Armor seems a little better, so that's the choice I've selected below. However, either leg armor should work just fine.

  • For the 2) Special (Ring) Slot, the Fearless Achaemenidae Ring is the best choice mostly because the Courageous Achaemenidae Ring has Siege Range Increase which could possibly reduce the effectiveness of a Ground Attack.

  • For the 3) Armor Slot, the Fearless Achaemenidae Armor is the obvious choice with two (2) Ground Troop buffs. However, I believe the Courageous Achaemenidae Armor will be the better overall choice, and that's the choice I have made below. But, if you prefer the Fearless Achaemenidae Armor, no one is going to say you made a bad decision (including me).

The first set below represents the choices I’ve made for this set, and the alternate option for each piece (with scores) are listed below the primary choices.

Overall, the full Ares Set is a weaker Ground PvP set, but there are two (2) pieces, the Courageous Ares Helmet and the Fearless Ares Ring, that can switched out with the corresponding Achaemenidae Equipment to create a "Mixed Red Gear" Set that's more focused on Ground Attack Increase.


Since the 4-piece Achaemenidae Set bonus is not useful for PvP, the Ares Sword can also be switched for the Achaemenidae Sword. Doing so replaces +40% Enemy Mounted Attack Debuff with +33% Enemy Mounted HP Debuff. In my opinion, it's not quite as good, but it's not a huge drop off either.
