Will this gear work on main character in Tales? As I understand it,main character gear/seals has zero effect in Tales,is this correct or changed?

still only for SS’s but you can buy it three times. just dont understand why you spend time and effort to craft things when DB turns around and just lets you buy it. whats the point really

Ahem… because the gear they are currently selling is kind of ultra-weak? I would not use it for epic, while it’s possibly good for hard if you have good SS. Certainly no comparison to Targ gear (the only other universal Tales gear out there). And they are selling Tales-specific gear anyway, it’s not like it’s the first time better Tales chances are on sale…

This universal tales gear is a joke.  There are currently no tales which require all 3 types of attacks (and hopefully there never is one, as that would be a nightmare to manage with only 5 SS slots).  Ideally you want to have 2 of each attack (ex: 2x Battle SS and 2x Trade SS) and the third should specialize in either of the 2 attacks but have equipped gear with benefits both attacks (ex: Battle SS with dual Battle and Trade gear).  There is no reason to waste stat slots on your SSes with stats that you won’t encounter in the tale.

If they want to make universal tales gear (and they very much should, as buying gear for a specific tale is an absolute waste of money), it needs to be in the form of Battle Gear, Trade Gear, Intrigue Gear and all possible 2 stat combinations thereof.

The gear is weaker, but really it would get the job done just fine in epic mode if you sealed it up the same way you seal up your epic gear…of course sealing it up the same as a one main stat item would be a waste.

yes db is essentially selling the game and has been doing it for years now, yep everything is for sale…...soon we will be able to flat out buy levels.

Not really worth it IMO. While the items are nice for hybrids taking a knee on 3rd down that’s only when they face an action with an SS skilled in that action. When that SS isn’t available they need win chance to at least get some points. When not taking a knee, they HAVE TO WIN. This gear doesn’t really add much to win chance. Token weapons beat this weapon, Jon Snow Lord Commander Armor provides better defense than the coronation dress and the companion also lacks % to defense. With 17 points difference you’re probably better off picking the Dothraki Rider for a 6% to defense. For a Trade/Int hybrid, a Braavosi Courtesan works a lot better

BTW I’m not really impressed by the S7 items they released so far, increased damage and character xp doesn’t really work well if the damage increase is more than the character xp. Would’ve preferred to see some items similar to Lyanna Stark’s Horse with increased speed an character xp.
