Mists of Noyah provides an expansive amount of equipment. Equipment types include Weapons, chest and helmet Armor, and multiple types of Accessories. Weapons provide the largest increases to Physical Attack, Spell Power, and Attack Speed. Armors provide the largest increases to Physical Defense and Magical Defense though can also provide significant boosts to offensive Statistics. Accessories provide any number of stat boost in all statistics but exclusively can boost Movement Speed and gathering resource strength (see Tools and Fishing Rods). Only 1 weapon, helmet, and chest armor can be equipped at a time. A total of 8 accessories can be equipped with limits on using no duplicate items and one of its types (i.e. one belt accessories, though there are bugs that allow you to equip 2 different mask and other types of accessories).
All equipment can be upgraded via the Enchantment Table which can provide significant gains for the player character to advance to higher tiers of equipment. Equipment plays a major role in Mists of Noyah, and you will need every advantage you can get. Even something as simple as a wooden shield or ring can make the difference between victory or defeat, so you should try to craft as much as possible based on the needs of your character.
To start out, you should craft a full set of wooden equipment. Ring, Armor, Shield, Amulet, everything. You will find that your adventure will become much easier and more rewarding as you craft and find new and more powerful equipment.
