RR gear list to help you


Active Member
Following is a list of Renown Rank Gear and their prereq. The number notation is RANK / RENOWN RANK. Hope this helps those that needs a bit more information on RR gear.

Some FAQs:
- There are two sets for tier 1 and tier 2.
- RR Cloak cannot be purchased until 21/14 (Rank/RR).
- The Rank/RR might be off by 1 for a few pieces on different classes. I only found a few exception.
- Tier 1 gear can be purchased right at the warcamps.
- Tier 2 gear needs to be purchased in keeps that your side has captured.
- There are three types of vendors for tier 1. One selling armor, the other selling weapons/accessories, and the last (quartermaster) selling banners.
- Tier 2 only has two gear vendors. Banners are included with the weapon/cloak/accessory vendor.
- A few warcamps do not have all the tier 1 gears. You might have to travel to different warcamps to obtain all the available pieces. Tier 2 is not affected (eventhough it has a few issues of it's own. i.e. Balistic stat bonus for Witch Elves' armor piece).

So does it make sense to skip Tier 1 Set 1 and start picking up Tier 1 Set 2 ... or wait until Tier 2? Or does it vary by career? I'm trying to get a feel for where the value-for-money breakpoints are ... in WoW, it made very little sense to invest in gear until a relatively high level ... dunno if WAR is the same.

Maybe the fact that I'm still using my Lvl1 sword helps to explain how I'm getting pancaked by the destros.
I generally skip tier 1 set 1, and just wait for tier 1 set 2. You level through the first few levels quickly enough that it just doesn't seem to make sense to me to buy gear that I'll be replacing in a few hours. If I end up in a scenario earlier than about level 6, I expect to be roadkill, so I just deal with it. Once I'm a little higher, then I like to get the benefit of the nicer gear, but I don't worry about it until halfway through tier 1.

As to the tier 2 sets, my guess is that it's going to be worth it upgrading through both sets as you go.
