Getting and equipping the right gears is important to become stronger in the game. In this equipment guide, we will teach you everything that you need to know about the gears categories, and how to select the best gears for your class. However, this guide acts as a generic guide and will not go into any specfic classes or builds. However, we may give examples on how a certain Aura Kingdom weapon class may benefit from certain gear setups.
If you have found this guide helpful, our Aura Kingdom guides list may help you with your game play as well.
Before we go into different on knowing your gears, we should start with the basic as the item items. The items are color coded based on their rarity. These item rarity colors can often tell you quite a bit about each of the gears in the game. From this screen you will see me equipped with all the different gears except White and Purple (PvP).
In Aura Kingdom, all of the gears become bound to your character once you equip it or upgrade it in any way or form such as inserting secret stones. In addition, you can not store a piece of gear inside your shared house if the gear has a secret stone inlaid into the equipment. It should be noted that the “orange” or crafted armor is bound by default. However, you can still trade or sell the cores.
White: These are your common loots gears of the game, you can get white gear mostly from NPC’s and occasionally as monster drops.
Blue (Relic): These are the “common” monster loots in the game, open world monsters and treasure boxes drop these gears. The Relic gears are important because they are the main way of getting your EXP and loot % boosts. The blue gears feature random stats rolls that can generally be weaker than the green gears. However, because they are relatively easy to have Lucky (Loot Rate +%) or Blessed (EXP +%), they are great choice of back armors when you are doing looting or exp runs.
In addition, blue relic gears can have stats that increase your specific class skills for the accessory, ring, and back. This means that you can potentially increase the damage output of your class skills by 6 levels if you have them all.
Green (Magic): These are the “common” gears that you can get through dungeon runs. In general, they are quite useless within the same level once you collect them. Sell them or savage these after checking that they offer less defense than your current green gears.
The green gears can have different categories such as:
Dmg, Crit with DMG % Boost.
Speed, Evade with HP % boost.
Speed, Crit with Eva % boost.
In general, the Dmg % and HP % boost are superior choices as you really do not want to rely on EVA while fighting bosses or other players.
Orange (Crafted): The Orange gears are crafted gears from the Blacksmith NPC. The blacksmith location is located in Navea. The crafted gears are usually upgraded from green gears with additional bonus stats coming from the armor cores. Because you can have better flexibility with crafted gears, they are usually superior than the previous blue gear.
Yellow (Gold): The gold gears are the rare drops in the game that can be opened through mostly boss drops or daily quest boxes. These gears when salvaged has a chance of dropping specific fortification items. Yellow gears typically have superior raw stats than the usual blue or green counter parts, however they can be weaker than the crafted gears when having a low stats roll.
Yellow weapons are obtained through fame quest boxes.
Yellow armor pieces are obtained through boss drops. Sometimes bosses will drop fusion scrolls where you will have to collect several yellow loot pieces from the boss and world monsters to fuse.
Purple (PvP): The purple gears are the PvP gears of the game usually offering damage deductions against enemy players. The staple stat for purple gears are Damage deducted against other players. Those damage deduction can really add up when you have gathered a whole PvP set armors.
Costumes: These are “special” gears that can determine the look of your character. These costumes typically have certain stats that are added. The costume slots are divided into Weapon, Hat, Back, and Clothing. These costumes can also have stats enhancing properties. However, they are typically cash shop items that can be bought from other players.
To fortify your gears, you will need both the Fragments and the fortification scrolls. You can get fragments by “salvaging” unwanted gears. In general, higher level and rarity gears salvage for more fragments pieces when you salvage them. Below is a quick screen shot of the fortification guide.
To get the Armor Fortification Scroll or Weapon Fortification Scroll. The armor and weapon fortification scrolls are dropped from world monsters and quests.
The “basic” armor and weapon fortification scrolls can only fortify your weapons or armors up to +9. To get it up to +20 you will need the “advanced” armor fortification scroll or “advanced” weapon fortification scrolls. The advanced versions can only be obtained through quests and cash shop.
When you fail the fortification you will get some “potential” points as a booby prize for failing. Higher level gears grants you less potential points when fail, however the gear will automatically advance one level when the you fail enough to reach 100 potential points.
By upgrading your gears to +9 will typically make a given weapon or armor roughly 30% stronger stats. By upping it all the way to +20 will give roughly double the stats.
At +9, +15, +18, and +20, the weapons and armors will give special fortification effects. Check your gears for the list of those special effects.
How to get fortification scrolls: The easiest and (free) way to obtain higher level fortification scroll is to make new characters and run them through the first 20~30 level worth of quests. Many early quests offer free “blue” fortification scrolls that have no level cap.
When you salvage yellow tier or crafted items, occasionally you will receive special gear transformation items that can upgrade the gear after using it. Below is the item description of one such fortification item. These transform equipment items typically add some stats to the gear while subtracting another.
You can only transform an item up to 6 times.
How to make weapon glow: When you enhance your weapon enough, they have a chance to glow once they are fortified pass level 15. However, the weapon is 100% guaranteed to glow at upgrade level 20.
Armor Set Bonus
Having a set bonus can activate certain skills or give bonus stats, sometimes you may want to give up a stronger gear simply because the gear set bonus is too good to give up. Always learn and test with your gear’s bonus effects to see if they help you in your battle. These “sets” are consisted of the gears within the same level tier and typically with the same prefix name. Below is a screenshot of a set bonus when it is completed.
Here is a quick gear guide of the main crafted sets that you may want.
Aria Set: Level 50 Damage Set.
Requiem Set: Level 50 HP Set.
Titan Set: Level 60 HP Set.
Devourer Set: Level 60 EVA Set.
Revelation Set: Level 60 Damage Set.
Without going into details on each of the cards that you can use. You can “enchant” cards into your costumes. The majority of these cards adds additional levels to your skills while some grant bonus stats.
Note that these enchantment items can only be used for your costume. These cards also have specific costume pieces that they can enchant for.
Follow this simple Aura Kingdom crafting guide, you will learn various crafting recipes for the armors pieces and trophies when you defeat bosses inside the dungeons, or you can purchase them from other players or the auction houses. There are two steps to crafting any of the player worn gears. You first craft out the “Core” which can make up of 1 or 2 bonus stats. These stats are carried over to the final gear.
The crafting materials are dropped from instance dungeons.
Learning New Recipes
Before you start crafting for the different gears in the game, you first will have to learn the various recipes which can cost you quite a bit of gold. To learn how to use recipe, “use” or pay up the recipe that you have earned from fighting instance bosses or other players.
How to craft: You can craft for your gears with the next screen. Note that the cores can have bonus specs that carry over to your finished product, so always craft a couple of armor cores until you have the stats that you want. Then use those cores with your final gear craft.
Notes about Virtual Treasures
Virtual Treasures function or item have not been released yet. We expect it to be a shop only item which boost your chances of obtaining higher stats when they do become available later. As of now, there is no way for you to get AK virtual treasures.
Special Weapon Core Notes
The weapons can have special effects that can be quite useful. These effects include stun, lower enemy Crit, Dmg, or defense.
Although the crafted weapons can have lower stats than the yellow tier weapon counter parts, their special core bonus may improve to be quite effective if you know what you are looking for.
Crafted Elemental Guide
The elemental stats of your crafted equipment is based on the “base” equipment that you used. For example, if you use a “fire” green as the base for your crafting, you will get a fire gear as a craft result.

The game has set the gear elements pretty easily to understand. There are two parts to the elemental puzzle of the game. We will first discuss the elemental weapons then the elemental gears. It should note that “punch” logo on weapons means that the weapon is neutral element and have no elemental bonus impact to damage.
Each of the skills from different classes have elements attached to them. By using the same weapon element as your skills, you will deal an additional 20% damage from your attacks. However, it should be noted that Yellow or crafted weapons do not have elements attached to them.
The Armor element of your gear will result in less damage taken from a skill of another armor type. For example, if you wear a Fire armor, you will take less damage from incoming fire attacks from both the PvE and PvP perspective.
This means that if you are a tanker, you should note which monsters deal the most damage to you with certain skills, then you can equip the right elemental armors accordingly.
The result of this is that you should typically wear Fire elemental armors into the Infernal Abyss dungeon so that you suffer less damage from incoming fire monster attacks.
Notes on Loot +% and EXP +%
The only gears that can have loot drop rate +% and EXP rate +% are blue relic gears or crafted gears. Because trophies do not have blue drops, the only place where you can get those stats are crafting the trophies into their upgraded versions.
To get more loots in the game, you will need the special stats Loot Drop Rate +%. The prefix for such item is “Lucky”. The Loot Drop Rate can also improve the quality of the loot that you obtain. So keep those full loot gears when you are out hunting for monsters for your daily quests.
Sometimes you would want the EXP rate +% as well to boost up your leveling speed.
