Say GoodBye to the WaterWorks Gear

As a high level player, I'm getting real tired of the "best gear in the game", the WaterWorks Gear. Dont get me wrong, it's pretty awesome compared to even some of the crown items, but its getting VERY outdated. For one the critical block isn't real good, ranging around the 60's range. If a level 90 storm with around 400 critical is fighting me, im going to get destroyed. The resist isn't bad but if a fire came and had around 30 pierce, again, I am going to get demolished. The health is good.. but it needs a little more, around 400 more. Accuracy is fine for the case I state, but the heal boost needs an adjustment. Around 6 heal boost.. will not help.. ever. Maybe give around 20, a pixie with 6% heal boost.. 450 woopdiedoo, with around 20 a nice 600 pixie would be awesome. For a basic example I can use Balance.

Balance- 90+, Balance only
Hat of the Balance
650 Health
6 Pierce
70 Critical Block
95 Critical
5 Accuracy
15 Resist
7 Heal Boost
Gives 2 Balance Blade Cards

That would be a great level 90 hat for balance
Stats will very for the school like an ice could instead have 800 health and 18 resist
and 3 accuracy.

Waterwork Gear has been out for aroune 3ish years or so?? I think we are going to need a little upgrade

i agree on the need for an upgrade, however that's even more OP what you're suggesting. and to be honest, if you're not satisfied with the new tartarus/hades gear then idk what you want

Tartarus gear is based too much on critical and gives low damage and accuracy, which would be fine if you were going for a critical set. However since there is no good crafted gear players who played an all around game are left in the dust by their oudated gear.Hopefully come Oct. or Nov. Kingsisle will fix this with new gear in the new world.

the new hades gear is an upgrade to the water works gear although if you don't wanna do a dungeon from 5 to 100 times I suggest you either stick with what you have or craft.

i agree we need better gear water works gear is good and all but make some new gear plz I just want some good gear because so far I can't fined any better gear that not craft and I hate crafting it take to long and the stuff always has rare stuff to get so I don't do it it just not worth it but I want some good gear like craft gear so could you make a gear like that in a tower or something so we can get it and not have to craft it because I really don't want to have to craft my gear I don't like to for one thing and it not worth all the work because I have to craft one thing to get the other thing

A lot depends on your school and playing style. For some, the Aquila gear or crafted is an upgrade to WW. For others it is not. I change depending on mission, but my Promethian Storm is still in Waterworks hat and robe most of the time, as it is still the best blend of damage, resist, and accuracy.

I agree that some new gear is due. Most of the Aquila stuff is nothing special when you factor in level.

So we just got new Hades' gear that was a major upgrade to the WW gear. I am not sure if you knew that. If you did and are intentionally posting this, it (Aquila) just came out months ago, now we gotta wait another 3 years jk, seriously, farm the tartarus hades' upgraded WW gear set along with the athame and you'll do just fine.

We can only hope but i am beginning to doubt KI. For three years the only good gear you can get is the crafted gear. And making that gear and getting to the level of crafter you need to be to get the recipes, it can take you up to 3+ months just to get it all. I dont think everything needs to be changed on the ww gear, i think it just needs updated to a lvl 90 standard. Instead of a base 12 resist for lvl 60, why not a base of 18? (i got this number by noticing 6x2=12 for lvl 60 gear, so 9x2=18 for lvl 90 gear) and the same for the rest of the stats. They dont need to be outrageous, they just need improved and tweaked a little.
