This is a simple guide for those who have some basic questions about the gear shards. This is a gear shard. You should be getting them daily at server reset. The tooltip applies to original smo and not to this server. Currently we are slated to receive a lot more than 32. In addition while original smo gave 1/day this server is currently being generous and giving us a lot more than that. The gear shard is used to get gear and other items at your school event agent. Go to your swordsman school and look for an npc that says Event. The bottom example is using the awesome Sun and Moon school. This Event agent will offer set gear to you for gear shards as well as random dyes and a weird umbrella. Keep in mind everything you buy from this agent is BOUND. It might offer more things in the future but that is it for now. When looking at the gear it will be organized by the level of the set gear as well as gear level with an "S" or without it. Keep in mind that "S" gear or swapable gear is shared among all the schools while the standard set gear is unique to your school. The impact this has is that "S" gear can potentially have skills that are not part of your school. You will still be able to use the gear but obviously will not benefit from the skill bonus if they do not apply. The tradeoff is that the "S" set bonuses tend to be very powerful when compared to the school set ones. So while it may take longer to collect an "S" set with relevant skills. The set bonus will be worth it. The school sets are pretty self explanatory since apart from being all the needed pieces, they will have school specific skills. The "S" sets apart from potentially having wrong skills for your class need to be mixed to cover all your equipment slots. The level 80 S is one most players will use since there is no regular level 80 set in the store. How you mix and match them will determine the bonuses you get since the "S" sets have overlapping pieces and you cannot wear two boots at the same time for example. There are a total of 6 level 80S sets. There are 2 major endo sets and 1 minor endo set as well as 2 major exo sets and 1 minor exo set. The major sets have 5 pieces each while the minor sets have 3 pieces. The Endo Sets along with their piece bonuses are: Imperial Peak (consisting of Bracers, Robes, Cloth, Boots and Pendant) 2 Pieces Tenacity +601. 4 Pieces Willpower +601. 5 Pieces Endo Attack +2941 Radiant Sun (consisting of Bracers, Robes, Cloth, Boots and Pendant) 2 Pieces Constitution +601. 4 Pieces Willpower +601. 5 Pieces Endo Attack +2941 Hundred Hands (consisting of Leggings, Necklace and Boots) 2 Pieces All Attributes +151. 3 Pieces All styles +4. The Exo Sets along with their piece bonuses are: Pagoda (consisting of Bracers, Robes, Cloth, Boots and Pendant) 2 Pieces Tenacity +601. 4 Pieces Strength +601. 5 Pieces Exo Attack +2941 High Tower (consisting of Bracers, Robes, Cloth, Boots and Pendant) 2 Pieces Constitution +601. 4 Pieces Strength +601. 5 Pieces Exo Attack +2941 Maneater (consisting of Leggings, Necklace and Boots) 2 Pieces All Attributes +151. 3 Pieces All styles +4. Hope this helps those wondering about the gear shards and the sets. -J [Credit goes to Zeus[Hun], Cujou and Suzi who all helped provide the actual gear stats.] Please let me know if there are any errors or things I need to fix.
