It amazes me that there doesn’t exist an article on the internet, with a simple table list of all the armor sets in BDO. Sure, bddatabase.net is great, but if you actually want to compare a few sets or pieces, you’re going to need a hundred clicks, and a few different windows.

My aim with this article, is to create an easy reference to all the armor sets in Black Desert Online, so that new players and veterans alike, can come back to check on some stats, vision their gear, or learn the core differences between each chest, helmet, glove or shoe.

Green Gear

Green Gear is the first “grade” of gear in the game, which is easily acquirable (on the marketplace or monster drops) even from your first few hours on the game.

There are many different sets, so we have sorted them from “worst to best” below.

If you are looking for a quick solution, you can’t go wrong with the Grunil set.


Fortuna Armor Set

The following sets, have identical stats, and only their weight / set-effects change:

  • Fortuna
  • Grunil
  • Hercules’ Might
  • Heve
  • Rocaba

Many new players may mistake Fortuna for a good set due to the extra luck & movement speed – and to be honest it does help when you are new – but in essence but are very easy-to-get stats in other ways (magic crystals or passive buffs for example).

Grunil Armor Set

Most experienced players tend to choose Grunil as their green gear, since the extra AP & HP seem like the most reasonable buffs to go after when you want to level up & progress the map fast.

Heve Armor Set

Heve is a nice Grunil alternative, if you feel you need more HP than AP, which is rarely the case. Keep in mind though, that the extra HP, along with the 1/4 weight of the Grunil set, it will make you last way longer while grinding.

Talis Armor Set

Talis is a “step-ahead” from the previous sets stats-wise, and introduces different item effects per item.



However, the effects are quite weak for justifying using it. What might be interesting in some cases, is getting +3 movement, +1 critical and Jump Up, by combining the boots with the gloves, and leaving you the option to activate one more 2-set effect from another set.

Agerian Armor Set

Agerian follows Talis’ philosophy, but this time offering quite strong item effects, that can make your life, and capping your Battle Stats easier.

Steel Taritas Armor Set

The following sets have identical sets, apart from weight, and the fact Zereth Shoes are the same with gloves, in contrast with the Taritas & Steel Taritas ones:

  • Steel Taritas
  • Taritas
  • Zereth

Steel Taritas is completely identical to Taritas, only lighter and more durable. This makes it more expensive, as it can be used for building faster enhancement failstacks than its other green counterparts.

Blue Gear

There is only one set of blue armor in BDO, and it’s called Lemoria.

Many may argue it’s a “noob trap“, just like the Liverto (Blue) Weapons, since it’s better to save straight for boss-gear.

While this is not untrue, you “can’t go wrong” with having it, especially if you are careful with enhancement and durability.

The Skill XP +10% buff is very nice, and having a full set can go a long way with raising your alts as well.

It IS a way more expensive option than green gear, and it will set you back on your boss-gear acquirement, make no mistake about that, and judge for yourself.

Boss Gear Armor

This is the dream. This is the gear you want to have, and it won’t be easy, or cheap to acquire it. 

It’s named “Boss-Gear” because it only (well, not only) drops from bosses, and the drops are quite rare, making these items hard to find on the marketplace, and quite expensive to pre-order, or a time-waste to “snipe” them from the market.

For the same reason, it’s quite difficult and expensive to repair its max durability (when it falls from failed enhancements), so most people use Memory Fragments (along with Artisan’s Memories) to restore it. These items are also hard to acquire, so you better save them up until you can spend them on your boss gear.

All the Boss Gear items count as if they are from the same set, so you can mix & match the ones you want, while getting their set effects:

3-Set Effect

  • Max Stamina +200

 

4-Set Effect

  • Attack Speed +1
  • Casting Speed +1

Boss Gear Chest – Dim Tree Spirit’s Armor / Red Nose’s Armor

While there’s only a “small” difference between the two chests, most people will sell their soul for Dim Tree and its extra HP.

And I mean that literally, since the preorders for a 0 level Dim Tree reach as much as 600 million silver (most boss-gear items go for roughly 100 million, and 150-200 preorder).

It’s not a rare occurrence as well, to find many Red Nose’s chests available on the marketplace for market price, since players really seem to be skeptical about them, and rather pay 5-6 times the price for Max HP, instead of HP Recovery.

And I don’t blame them, since the Red Nose’s Armor’s HP Recovery is significantly low, at 8HP / 10 seconds. Oh will we ever learn what the devs are thinking…

Boss Gear Helmet – Griffon’s Helmet / Giath’s Helmet

Not much to say here, Griffon’s Helmet has an obvious advantage, though the gap between the two helmets isn’t that big.

Giath’s is just a bit weaker on the Damage Reduction side, while providing an item effect which is somewhat weaker as well.

5% to all resistance will let you take far more damage than +100 HP, so definitely try to get your hands on Griffon’s, even though it will be a bit harder / more expensive (preorders sit at 300 mil).

Boss Gear Gloves – Bheg’s Gloves / Leebur’s Gloves

There is no actual choice you have to make here, since Leebur’s Gloves are not yet available in the EU / NA version of the game.

The stats for them have been taken from BD Database [dbdatabase.net], and their validity is unknown (they definitely have some “weird” stats).

Bheg’s are easy to get, and preorders are very close to the market price.

Boss Gear Shoes – Urugon’s Shoes / Muskan’s Shoes

Last but not least, we have the boss-shoes, where the gap between the items drives a different playstyle.

Muskan’s have a clear Evasion advantage, while Urugon’s are way more beefy. You will have to judge for yourself.

Know though, that Urugon’s are pretty rare, and preorders for a 0 level go as high as 1.2 Billion silver. You have been warned.

Farming Boss-Gear Armor Yourself

As mentioned, the drop rates for boss-gear aren’t great, and most bosses are actually pretty hard to kill, depending of course and on the amount of people trying.

A pretty good tactic if you want to farm boss gear yourself, is to set up an alt in between the markers below:

Boss-Gear Farming

You can see that Dastard Bheg, Dim Tree Spirit, Red Nose & Karanda (Awakening Weapon Boss-Gear) are pretty close with each other, making it easy to log in with your boss-alt, and take part in the fight.

Since the Field Bosses don’t have a set schedule like Karanda or Kzarka, your best bet for accurate boss notifications, is the IHAEU Discord Channel [discord invite link] (International Hunting Association EU), with many dedicated users that call bosses as they come out.
