Postknight Equipment Bonuses Guide

Knowing equipment bonuses means you don't waste your time grinding on equipment you don't want. Makes sense, right?

When you're looking at equipment in Postknight it's not the stats you have to worry about, it's the 5-star bonuses. Stats are great and all, but agility is king and stats on top of if only serve as a bonus.

There are two bonuses to keep in mind when choosing equipment: set bonuses and 5-star bonuses.

Set bonuses take effect when you equip an entire set and 5-star bonuses take effect when you fully upgrade a piece. Both are valuable assets and later in the game you have to decide whether a set bonus is more worth it than a 5-star bonus from a piece from another set.

How you get each piece in a set depends on the set itself. Some pieces are given to you as you progress the story, others are gotten via merchants. Especially rare pieces may take a great number of merchant refreshes to have them show up, so that is something to keep in mind. Make sure you have the bars required first as well.

This guide covers each set's pieces' 5-star bonuses as well as set bonus. This way you don't waste time grinding for materials to get all of a set's pieces to find they have bonuses you don't want. Why waste time you don't have to?

There are two equipment sets missing from this guide: The tier 5 Golem Set and the tier 4 Harbinger's Set. These will be added later, I just haven't finished them up.

Lastly, before you scroll all the way to the bottom: The Everlast Set is not in the game yet.

Everlast Set

Not yet added to the game.

More sets will surely be added as the game grows, but this is what we have for now and it's a pretty meaty amount! The Everlast Set is sure to be the strongest yet considering its rarity (Legendary) but it's not available in-game yet and there are no indications as to when it will be added.
