Epic Armors are one of the most powerful armors in the game, only to be surpassed only by Dragonforged and Shadowforged armors. There are currently about 168 Epic armors in the game. They possess 5 cyan colored stars and were first introduced to the game on 24th July 2013. These armors can be obtained in Chance Chests, Fusion, Guild Wars, Arena, Raid Bosses, Epic Bosses, and Heroic Mode. The Plus (+) version of an epic armor is only available in chests, or crafted if it was from an epic boss or heroic event.

One other noteworthy feature is that all epic armors have their own animated 'aura' or particle effect. Examples include: Arborsteel Vanguard, which has bubbles seemingly forming out of the hammer; Moontide Platemail, which appears to sparkle in select places; and Forgestone Aegis, which has a sort of burning aura emanating from its clawed gauntlet and cleaver-like sword.

Starting with the Epic Boss Magician, all Epic Bosses now have craftable Epic armors.

Starting on July 12th, 2016, the Epic Boss Magician has returned, and there is a new tier for Epic Boss Armors. You can now craft the ++ version of the armor.  For further details on new Epic Armors and their respective stats, please see the new page New Epic Armor. Updates will be there from this point forward.

Epic Armor TiersEdit

Each Tier is based on an armor's strength relative to the Epic Boss Armor+, normal Heroic Mode Armors, and the Heroic Mode Armors+. Tier 1 Armors are worse than the newest Epic Boss Armors+. Tier 2 Armors are worse than the newest Normal Heroic Mode Armor. Tier 3 Armors are noticeably worse than the newest Heroic Mode Armor+. Tier 4 Armors are still worse than the newest Heroic Mode Armor+, but not by too much. Tier 5 Armors are better than the newest Heroic Mode Armor+.

Placement on tiers is based on total stats of an armor's Regular Version. The fact that double-element armors get an extra boost from guild bonuses is also taken into account; as a result mono-element armors need higher base stats to be in a tier. For example, lets assume a Guild has all 6% element boosts, then compare Primordial Hide (mono-Earth), Crystal Finmail+ (Heroic Mode Armor+), and Ashenfire Robes (Fire/Earth). Primordial Hide has 4080 base plus a guild boost of 6% = 4325; Crystal Finmail+ has a base of 4256 plus a guild boost of 6% = 4511; Ashenfire Robes only has a base of 4040 but gets two 6% boosts = 4524; therefore Primordial < Finmail + < Ashenfire; therefore Ashenfire is in Tier 5 because it is better than a Heroic+, but Primordial is not.

NOTE: the number in brackets in front of an armor indicates its "RANK." The higher the rank number, the better the armor. RANK is based on the assumption that your Knights' guild has 6% boosts in all elements. For stronger guilds, double-element armors will be higher ranked than they are on this list. For weaker guilds, mono-element armors will be ranked higher than they are on this list. Rank Formula:

  • Mono-Element Armor: Total Stats * 1
  • Double-Element Armor: Total Stats * 1.06 (accounts for extra 6% from guild boost)
  • Kaleidoscopic Armor: (Attack * 1.5 + Defense) * 0.94 (accounts for kaleidoscopic effect and no guild boost)

Proto TierEdit

Proto Tier Epics are considered the weakest Epics in the game. Only two Epics are part of this group, Moontide Platemail and Cloudrange Platemail. Moontide, being the first Epic ever released, is widely known as the worst Epic in the game. Cloudrange holds the title for worst Guild War Epic, it being the First Guild War Epic (Not Forgestone Aegis as many people believe). Both Epics have a Stat Total that is lower than 3000 (Regular Version). Both of these armors also use their first evolution helmet as their Avatar look.

First Tier - Worse than Epic Boss Armors+Edit

The First Tier of epics are now called "replaced", as the newer Epic Boss Armors+ have greater stats. These epics are generally not worth leveling. Double-element armors in their tier have less than 3200 total stats; mono-element armors in this tier have less than 3300. Starting from Armor of the Devoted, these Epics started using their second evolution form as their avatar.
