What a week in GOW! With the end of the month and the end of the quarter fast approaching, MZ has unleashed a plethora of upgrades including the new Gear Workshop building. Similar to the other buildings within Strong Hold, the Gear Workshop building must be upgraded from Level 1 to Level 24 for greater benefits. In addition to the normal RSS requirement that each building has, you will also need to have POWER JEWELs and POWER ESSENCE to upgrade the Gear Workshop. See chart for benefits at each level of Gear Workshop:
The biggest advantage to having the Gear Workshop is that you will be able to “Power Up” your Regular Gear and Cores for greater boosts. The boosts vary based on the gear or cores you are Powering Up.
Based on our initial testing with using this feature on the Bacchus Core Set, we were able to add an incredible 1,260% Attack for the complete set or 180% Attack per Core Equipment. This incredible boost is temporary and will expire along with the core you choose to boost. Think about these in the same respect as current boosts available through packs (just a little more steps to apply).
For majority of the Regular Gear, we found that the gear set can be boosted for an incredible 70% boost or 10% boost per equipment. From the Oracle example above, we were able to increase the full set research speed by 70% with the Level 10 Power up option. See images below as reference for an accessory from the Bacchus set and the Head gear from the Oracle Set.
You will also be able to Salvage existing equipment (regular gear and core) for Power Essence. There is a 20 minute cool down period after you salvage one existing equipment. You have the option of purchasing Salvaging Mallets in packs to speed past the cool down period.
Please keep in mind that Power Essence is required for upgrading the building and for powering up the equipment. Your options are to purchase this item in Packs or craft and break/salvage items to harvest. Great way to finally get rid of all the old cores and gear that you have…craft and break down 🙂
The image to the left shows what will be required to upgrade the Gear Workshop from level 23 to 24. We will add a table for each level in the next update.
