Armor
Enchantment and Exclusive gear fill up the additions in this patch's new armor. There are four new full armor sets of Rare/Ex "Hydra" equipment, which provide the majority of the new gear. This Hydra armor is believed to be obtained in or through the new Dynamis-Tavnazia zone:
  1. The Fellow set, that provides bonuses to a character's Fellowship NPC.
  2. The meleeing caster set, which provides some boosts to non-traditional stats, for casters.
  3. The tanking set, designed for main tanks.
  4. The daily enchantment set, which provides boosts to physical damage jobs, in the form of an Enchantment that is available every 20 real life hours.
There are three new items (two earrings and one mantle) that can be purchased with Ancient Beastcoins. A handful of other earrings and assorted armor pieces were also added.

All the new key items added in the patch are listed here. These are used in a variety of ways, as detailed below.

Crafting Tools

A number of new Crafting Tools were added with this patch, that are purchased with Guild Points for their respective guild.
