A new way to boost your stats has come to the battlefield. Set Bonuses offer stat increases unique to several gear sets.
What is a Set Bonus?
A Set Bonus is an additional bonus applicable to a full set of Gear. There is a Set Bonus for 5 piece and a higher Full Set Bonus for 7 pieces. Note that your gear pieces must be legendary at this point for the Set Bonus to apply.
Set Bonus Research
Before you can take advantage of the Set Bonus you must do the research. This research is under the “Set Bonus” tab in the Research Facility. The higher your research, the bigger bonus you receive. There are individual researches for each category of gear (Armor, Helm, Accessory, etc).
These researches require Set Bonus Research Dossiers and T2 RSS, and a minimum of Base Research Facility Level 20. Note that these researches have high T2 RSS requirements, so it will behoove you to not start this tree until you have the full sets that will benefit from it.
This tree also has research for allowing constant training of Rally and P51 Mustang Mercenary Troops.
Where Can I see my Set Bonus?
Going into the Armory, click on your inventory and then the green jacket/helmet in the upper right-hand corner. This will show you which sets you currently have (or are working on), that benefit from the Set Bonus. It will show green if you have the items needed for the Set Bonus. The items you still need will be grayed out. Note if you do not have ANY items yet from one of the sets that benefits from Set Bonus you won’t be able to see it in this screen.
