Bag of Tricks Vol. 54: Be Smart About Upgrading the Current Off-Hands to Legendary

Bog of Tricks Logo

Welcome to the latest installment of our Bag of Tricks! On some days you will find useful tricks, gimmicks and ideas here that can make life in Neverwinter Online easier. Some of the stuff should be well known, but since even veterans learn something new every now and then, chance is you can, too.

Legendary gear is shiny and everybody wants it! And for earlier versions of the Artifact Gear, it made perfect sense to go all the way to orange. Because with the last upgrade of the gear, one additional enchantment slot would upgrade. This is no longer the case on Relic, Ascended and the upcoming Stronghold weapon sets, which feature all slots already at purple quality. It’s an amazing quality-of-life upgrade for players, but unfortunately makes upgrading the Off-Hand to legendary a pretty big waste of resources on some classes.

The difference between purple and legendary is marginal

While the Main-Hands still offer a perk in additional damage, not all of the Off-Hands do. On classes that do not have damage on them, the difference between level 59 purple and level 60 orange are merely ~200 stat points. Considering how much grind is involved in obtaining the 15 Legendary Marks for Relics, it’s not worth it. The same is probably also true for the other sets that can be leveled conventionally.

Unfortunately that does not apply to all classes equally. Hunter Rangers and Trickster Rogues, who get weapon damage from both the Main-Hand and Off-Hand still need to go all the way. But if you play one of the other classes, be smart about (not) upgrading the current Off-Hands to legendary!
