Often, many people ask what is the best equipment for each slot in AriesMS, so here is a "detailed" guide on what you should spend your life farming towards. It is important to note that in AriesMS, we currently do NOT have Armor Flames (GMS/KMS Flames) or many of the overpowered items you can find in GMS through Marvel Machine, such as the Breath of Divinity Ring.

If you need a scrolling guide, you can find one posted by @Spyro by clicking on the link below:

Link to a Google Docs with more information about AriesMS' BiS equipment, as well as comparisons between Tyrant and Arcane Umbra gear:
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1okuUfdkiYS2dVhz5S-YT3bzJZnaT6-JqMzrWwNZNeVo/edit?usp=sharing


**Note: 20-Star Arcane Umbra Cape and Shoes is ONLY better than 15-Star Tyrants if you already have 2 Arcane items already equipped as you need the 3-set effect or higher.
  • Weapon: Arcane Umbra Weapon
  • Secondary: Level 100 Secondary // Deimos Shield (Warrior/Mages/Thief) // Ruined Forced Shield // Arcane Umbra Katara or Fan
  • Hat: Arcane Umbra Hat
  • Top: Chaos Root Abyss Top
  • Bottom: Chaos Root Abyss Pants
  • Face Accessory: Sweetwater Tattoo
  • Eye Accessory: Sweetwater Monocle
  • **Cape: Arcane Umbra Cape (Must be 20* or higher) or else 15* Tyrant Cloak
  • **Shoes: Arcane Umbra Shoes (Must be 20* or higher) or else 15* Tyrant Shoes
  • Belt: Superior Gollux Belt (Must be 22* or higher) or else 15* Tyrant Belt
  • Gloves: Arcane Umbra Gloves (Must be 20* or higher) or else 15* Tyrant Gloves
  • Shoulder: Arcane Umbra Shoulder
  • Ring #1: Superior Gollux Ring
  • Ring #2: Reinforced Gollux Ring
  • Ring #3: Solid Gollux Ring
  • Ring #4: Meister Ring
  • Pendant #1: Superior Engraved Gollux Pendant
  • Pendant #2: Superior Engraved Gollux Pendant
  • Earrings: Superior Gollux Earrings
  • Badge: Ghost Ship Exorcist
  • Android: Fantastical or Halloweenroid (All Androids can equip all Hearts on AriesMS)
  • Heart: Outlaw Heart
  • Emblem: Crystal Maple Leaf Emblem
  • Medal: Nova Pride
  • Pocket: Pink Holy Cup // Inverse Codex (if you attend Hekaton)
As for Totems, technically, the BiS for AriesMS are the ones found from the Yu Garden questline. However, you must farm them every THREE days since they expire. Due to this, a huge majority of end-game players use the Sengoku ones obtained during the Red-Leaf High event.
  • Totem #1: Uesugi Kenshin Totem
  • Totem #2: Sanada Yukimura Totem
  • Totem #3: Honda Tadakatsu Totem

is there a chart for 25 stars for abso? since arcane is endgame, ppl still need to progress through the lower tier gears yet @[email protected]
I've updated the Google Docs Link with Tyrants VS AbsoLab gear comparisons.

TL;DR If you already have decent 12* Tyrant gears, it’s not worth spending $$ to simply break-even achieving 21* AbsoLab gears (this may depend on how the AriesMS Staff Team decides on how to handle Sapphire Boxes post 15*). If you already have 15* Tyrants, do not go AbsoLab gear AT ALL.

Was't Scarlet Ring better than Solid Gollux Ring?
Perhaps you can gain a little something from scarlet being a lucky item, but I imagine that Solid is BiS for its higher base stats, has 1 more slot, and has scrolls to go with it. I don't see a problem if you have a well scrolled scarlet ring, since they both go up to 20 stars.

Edit: Scarlet ring only fills the ring portion for set bonuses, so solid is the way to go.

Just because you don't have the resource/tricks to star beyond 18 doesn't mean everyone also doesn't. You can hold on to your tyrants and scarlet but LGR is too weak even with its buff.

since we now know getting to 17 stars or more is borderline impossible, is Tyrant/LGR/Scarlet endgame in most cases?
Everyone still uses Tyrant Equips, and Scarlet Ring is perfectly fine to use at the moment since Meister Ring only gets much better after reaching 21*. However, LGR is nowhere near good enough now.

you forgot about the lvl 130 thief shield for bandits
Added, thanks.

Most people consider using Dragon Khanjar instead of Deimos Darkness Shield for 2 reasons:
  1. Dragon Khanjar have basic att is 15
  2. Deimos Darkness Shield need aleast 18 stars to be better than 15 stars Dragon Khanjar
Dragon Khanjar > Deimos Darkness Shield in most cases.

TL;DR: BiS and worst in most cases: Deimos Darkness Shield

Btw, Aries don't have Deimos Shield for mage yet.

17 stars not 18, and 17 is very achievable. to bypass 15 atk, 16=10, 17= 11 so 17*=21 atk, not looking to the luck ofcourse which is way higher aswell

I've updated the Google Docs with important changes due to finding out Arcane Umbra Gloves get an additional +1 Weapon or Magic Attack at 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 14, and 15 Stars. I've also removed the AbsoLab information since only Weapon, Gloves and Shoulders are useful in AriesMS.

TL;DR
Arcane Umbra Gloves (20* or higher) > 15* Tyrant Gloves
Arcane Umbra Shoes and Cape (20* or higher) > 15* Tyrant Shoes and Cape ONLY if you already have 2 Arcane items already equipped as you need the 3-set effect or higher.
