The Gear Workshop has a feature called Set Gear Leveling. Set Gear Leveling allows you to upgrade your gear sets. Maximum set gear level is now 500.
New set gear levels provide rally leaders incredible attack and defense annihilation while defensive players gain troop, type, legion, and resolute defense with some troop attack as well. In this guide, we discuss all set gear levels including requirements, strengths, and benefits.
Want to level up your gear but lack the required Gear Workshop level? Visit our Gear Workshop guide for more information on upgrade requirements.
Gear Levels 500
The in-game blog shows the boosts for Level 500 of the newer gear sets. Defense Titan Overlord gains 1BT% attack, 1 KT% Troop Defense, 1 KT% Legion Defense, 2KT% Resolute Defense, 1 KT% Type Defense. Meanwhile, Warmaster Gear Set receives boosts of 100 BT% Troop Attack, 10 BT% Type Attack, 150 BT% Onslaught Attack, 2 KT% Defense Annihilation and considerable health.
Gear Levels 300
This gear level should be the minimum that defensive players have on their Titan Overlord gear set. Less than 300 and you risk burning if you don't have some other savior like high research on the new Battle Mark Mastery research tree.
Gear Levels 250
Most players will now have above 250 on all their gear sets. So many items in packs, you'd have to intentionally have a low gear set level at this point. Keep this in mind when deciding on a target to solo or rally.
Gear levels require Gear Level Experience and Charms which vary depending on the gear set. Warmaster's and Defense Titan Overlord Gear Set Level 500 requires approximately 1 billion charms each.
How to Level Up Gear
Go to your Gear Workshop. And find the Set Gear Leveling. Next, choose a set you wish to level up. Hit it with Set Gear XP then use the appropriate Charm from the chart above that will level it up! It's very similar to leveling up your Hero. You need Set Gear XP to max out the current level then a Charm to upgrade to the next level.
Pro Tip: You can save on Set Gear XP with this tip. Equip the Gear Set you wish to level up. Now hit monsters with it. You will gain XP simply by hitting monsters while wearing it. Then all you need is charms to level up.
Charms Needed for Each Set Gear Type
Each set gear requires a type of Charm to level up. Keep in mind that some gear sets share the same Charm. So choose wisely which Gear Set you'd like to level up first!
|Combat Gear Sets||Protection Charm|
|Economy Gear Sets||Citizen Charm|
|Monster Gear Sets||Hunter Charm|
|Attack Core Gear Sets||Striking Charm|
|Wonder Core Gear Sets||Wondrous Charm|
Many players are a bit confused about Legion Attack and Health. These stats are simply bonuses you receive from Gear Levels. These stack on your gear stats. These stats can't be debuffed until Legion Debuff is introduced.
So, when you see Legion stats just think of those a tertiary stats that stack on your type and general boosts. Legion stats are obtained from gear, research, gems, runes and other places. Whether the Legion stat is applied to your troops depends where you obtained the Legion stat.
For instance, Legion stats obtained from research apply to troops regardless of where they are located, wonder, tile, stronghold, marching etc unless specified otherwise. For example, "with Hero" or "while defending Wonder" means the Legion stat is applied in those circumstances.
Gear Leveling for Trap Players
So you're a trap and new Set Gear Levels are out. SWEET! You search how it can benefit you?
Pegasus, which is used by many players to fight tiles or take rallies isn't included as one of the Set Gear Leveling options. We now have available Agile Duelist's set to replace Pegasus. You may upgrade Agile Duelists gear set levels.

Gear Level 200 for Rally Leaders
The 500,000% Defense Debuff is a bit misleading. If you take a look at the next image below then you'll see its actually split between 250,000% Empire Defense Debuff and 250,000% Legion Defense Debuff.
Set Gear 200 actually provides zero Troop Defense Debuff. However, it may be enough given the added 2,500,000,000% attack.
Gear Level 200 for Defensive Players (Traps)
Defensive players are adding 600,000% defense. At first glance this seems like a lot but when you consider the defense is split among 250,000% Empire Defense, 250,000% Legion Defense, and 100,000% Troop Defense. This split makes it much easier for rally leaders to debuff.
It would benefit traps more to provide a great deal of one type of defense than to spread it around because the higher it is the harder it is to be debuffed by the leaders. Since we have no Legion Defense Debuff resistance, set level 200 is no gain in legion defense over rally leaders.
The same could be said of Empire Defense. 250,000% Empire Defense for traps is great! Unfortunately, rally leaders also gain 250,000% Empire Defense Debuff. However, traps also gain 100,000% Troop Defense! Nice advantage!
Rally leader's gain zero additional Troop Defense Debuff from Gear Set 200.
