Magic: Legends is ready to begin its Open Beta on March 23. To prepare for that, the development team is giving interested players a peek into the equipment system. Today, we take a look into the gear and gear slots and how they work in the game.

How it Started

The team wanted to do away with the typical loot system. They aimed at a system that made use of spells and artifacts at different levels, as well as rarities. After completing several Closed Alpha tests, the team decided to come up with a more robust Equipment System. Basically, what they aspired was a system that felt rewarding while avoiding the usual overbearing loot drops.

Equipment System

In the game, equipment comes in four different rarities which are:

  • Common
  • Uncommon
  • Rare
  • Mythic Rare

These can be placed in different slots where players can mix and match various sets. A total of six slots are available:

  • Head (1)
  • Body (1)
  • Arms (1)
  • Feet (1)
  • Accessories (2)

Like other RPGs, the equipment improves the player’s character by offering stat bonuses.

Moreover, gears that players collect give a single Core Mod and one or more Adaptive Mods. The difference between the two is Adaptive Mods can be switched while Core Mods are fixed and can’t be swapped out.

To let players focus on their equipment collection, the game doesn’t require any duplicate gear piece to be sold. Players can instead use them to unlock a new Adaptive Mod or earn an upgrade material for a particular piece of gear sets.

Appearance and Tailor

When the player collects gear, they open up the cosmetic appearance in The Tailor. That means getting gear not only boosts stats but also makes the character look cool.

For those wondering, the Tailor is an NPC in the hub area of each region. Like the gear sets, players can also mix and match various pieces to come up with their own style. The Tailor lets players edit the following clothing parts:

  • Headwear
  • Bodywear
  • Undershirts
  • Armwear
  • Gloves
  • Pants
  • Footwear

The Tailor can too help players make changes to their character’s face, body, hairstyle, and even skin color, among many others.

So what do you think? Is the equipment system unique enough?
