The Division's New Gear Sets Detailed

Share it:
So on April 1st 2016 we were graced with details about the upcoming 1.1 incursion update for Tom Clancy's: The Division which is coming on Tuesday the 12th of April. I am sure that all of you fellow Agents are gearing up for this incursion called 'Falcon Lost'. Recently, Ubisoft have released an image with each of the Gear Sets coming and their set bonuses. I am genuinely excited about these set bonuses, but I honestly have some issues about how OP these sets are!.

The Gear Sets can be acquired through multiple ways:

- Incursions: The incursions that will be released will reward you with a Gear Set piece in one way or another.

- Blueprints: I am not completely sure this is going to be a way to acquire these pieces, but we shall see.

- Daily Challenge Missions: You will have a chance to receive Gear Set pieces as well as the normal/new High End items.

- Dark Zone: That's right, our friendly neighbourhood DZ will have a chance to drop Gear Set pieces, most likely from the upcoming supply drops. So be on the lookout!

Take a look at this picture and just bask in their glory.



So after looking at that, I can see some nerfs going to come after people start getting the talents for each of these pieces. I will write each of the set bonuses down below for those who cannot load the image for some reason one way or another.

(The numbers in the brackets represent how many pieces of this set you will need to activate the corresponding bonus.)

Striker's Battlegear:

Set Bonus (2):
         +20% Enemy Armor Damage

Set Bonus (3):
         +100% Critical Hit Damage

Set Bonus (4):

-Every consecutive hit deals deals 1% more damage. Stacks up to 100%. Missing shots drops bonus by 2%. bonus is reduced by 1% every second-

Path of the Nomad:

          +50% Scavenging

Set Bonus (3):
          +20 Health on Kill

Sentry's Call"

Set Bonus (2):
          +30% Headshot Damage

Set Bonus (3):
          +20% Damage to Elites

Set Bonus (4):

-Headshots mark the enemy, increasing the damage inflicted on the target by 15%  for a duration of 10 seconds each. A target can receive up to three marks-

In a PvE sense these Gear Sets are going to be amazing for Falcon Lost and any future Incursions. and even making challenging missions less (for lack of a better word) "Challenging". I am looking forward to acquiring the Sentry's Call Gear Set, for my marksman build. Another thing I like is the instance trading meaning if I get a piece of gear as a reward that my friend needs I can trade it to them within 2 hours of acquiring it at a safe zone.

So those are all the bonuses for each Gear Set. They're pretty awesome and OP I reckon. In PvP, the main one I have kind of an issue with is the Striker's Battlegear. This is mainly because it does not specify if it is only going to be AI affected by this damage bonus or will I be affected also, and by "I" I mean anyone taking fire from someone who is using this gear. The reason being, someone with the talent unlocked could build the stacks on, say a boss in the DZ and then once you grab your loot could burst you down with 100% of their current damage (which at the moment a lot of people are over 150k DPS at the moment). So you could be killed before you can react with your defence buff, unless you are wearing the Path of the Nomad set to revive when you die instead. I guess I am just worried about how much more of a danger groups of rogues are going to be if they all use the Striker's Battlegear. If they burst you down and pop the Nomad revive, they can sure as hell burst you down a second time before you can say "What just happened?"

In a PvE sense these Gear Sets are going to be amazing for Falcon Lost and any future Incursions.
I am looking forward to this 1.1 update are you?
