Gear

Gear consists of items that directly determine a character's power level. It can be acquired from various sources: dungeons, raids, world drops, crafted through professions, obtained from PvP vendors, or chosen as rewards from the Great Vault.

Each piece of gear significantly boosts a character's overall strength and capabilities. Here is Arkcopes's gear for each equipment slot:

Antique Bronze Bullion

Antique Bronze Bullion serves as a specialized currency in Dragonflight Season 4, enabling players to purchase specific items. Each item costs 2 bullions and can be upgraded to its maximum Mythic level.

Given that the acquisition of bullions is limited to 1 per week from defeating raid bosses and 2 from the Weekly Mythic Dungeons quest reward when available, here are the items selected by Arkcopes.

    Embellishments

    Embellishments are unique effects associated with crafted items, either as predefined elements in a recipe or added with an optional embellishment reagent, creating embellished gear. These enhancements diversify and amplify characters' capabilities.

    Given that only a maximum of two embellished items can be equipped at a time, here are Arkcopes's embellishments:

    No embellished item data found yet.

    Enchantments

    Enchantments provide minor yet valuable enhancements to various items, including Head, Back, Chest, Wrist, Waist, Legs, Rings, Feet, Main Hand, and Off Hand.

    Most enchantments are crafted via the Enchanting profession. However, Waist enchantments specifically require Blacksmithing, Legs enhancements are crafted by Leatherworkers, and Head enchantments come from the Incandescent Essence , a reward obtained through a quest in the Amirdrassil raid.

    Enchantments are usually available at the auction house, making them accessible for upgrades. Here are the specific enchantments chosen by Arkcopes for each equipment slot:

    Gems

    Gems are crafted stones from the Jewelcrafting profession, typically offering stat bonuses to enhance your gear and balance character stats as a final touch. These gems can be socketed into specific items such as Head, Neck, Wrist, Waist, and Rings.

    Even though the presence of sockets on these items is usually random upon their drop, neck pieces can be uniquely modified to have up to three sockets by using three Tiered Medallion Setting . Additionally, a single socket can be added to other eligible items with an Eye of Awakening , which requires three Aspects' Tokens of Merit obtained from the Great Vault.

    Available through both the auction house and the crafting order system, here are the gems currently socketed by Arkcopes:
