Best Combat Gear Rank:

#2 for Defensive Helmet

A narrow 2nd place behind the excellent Reaper’s Hood, this is an excellent combat helmet. One of the best items for Enemy Attack debuff which is one of the best defensive boosts around. A large defense boost is nice to see which partly compensates for it not being the most effective of boosts.


Two large defensive combat boosts – this item servers its purpose exceptionally well.


Silver Cost: 114,425,000

At 115m silver this item is very expensive.


Jewelry Plating Wax Demon Tail

Two standard materials is nice. Wax is a rare seasonal material which is hard to get hold of but the real killer is the Demon Tail. This is a rare monster item and the only effective way to get hold of it is though Krampus chests. This means lots of inferno/KvK events or big spending.


An excellent combat item, this is marginally superior to the Feathered Fortress Armor. A must build if you can get hold of a Demon Tail.
