Paladin of Sola Set Gear
A new defensive set gear has been released, called the Paladin of Sola set. It’s going to be a slight improvement over Golden Shogun, to be sure, or there’d be no reason to upgrade. I have not seen any complete sets on social media yet, so I cannot confirm this first-hand. Based solely on the stats in the Forge, it’s an excellent all-around defensive set, with good overall troop boosts as well as troop type defensive boosts. It also has good enemy troop attack debuff in the set bonuses, which is lacking on the Golden Shogun set.
The set bonuses for the Paladin of Sola set are as follows:
These do seem a bit odd, but make more sense when you look at the gear. Cavalry Defense is slightly underrepresented in the gear based on stats alone, so MZ made up the difference in the Five-Piece Set Bonus. The Troop Defense bonus conferred by the full Seven-Piece Set Bonus is quite considerable, at 320% without taking the Full Set Bonus Boost hero skill into account.
Sola’s Guidance (Lv.50, Helm)
Sola’s Embrace (Lv.50, Armor)
Sola’s Steps (Lv.50, Feet)
Sola’s Wrath (Lv.50, Weapon)
Sola’s Light (Lv.50, Accessory)
Combined Gear Stats (no hero skills/research/gems)
Troop Attack: 235%
Troop Defense: 700% (320% more with full Seven-Piece Set bonus)
Troop Health: 0
Infantry Defense: 1000%
Ranged Defense: 1000%
Cavalry Defense: 800% (200% more with Five-Piece Set Bonus)
Infantry Health: 200%
Ranged Health: 200%
Cavalry Health: 200%
Enemy Attack Debuff: 0 (140% with Five-Piece Set bonus, 88% with full Seven-Piece Set Bonus)
Looking at these values, overall Troop Health is non-existent. Overall Troop Defense and the three Troop Type Defenses combined are solid, however. The Troop Type Healths are high enough to not be zeroed out without specific core pieces, but the lack of overall Troop Health is the only readily apparent weakness of the set.
