Guide to Gear Material and Quest

All credit goes to omgitsbees!


This guide is meant to help beginning players just starting out at level 50. The best way to play the game though is to just do all quests you possibly can, and work on grinding chaos dungeons, and PvP for tokens that you will use for upgrade materials. Gear upgrading can seem overwhelming and frustrating until you fully understand just how many options you have available to you to hone your gear and work your way towards tier 3.
