What RPG would be complete without items? In HEX, the equipment you acquire during your adventures will improve your character and customize your play experience. Victory in battle, looting treasure chests, and completing quests are just a few ways to acquire equipment in HEX. Equipment has four different rarities, similar to the cards you open in packs.
Equipment are various items that players can find from a wide variety of locations, though generally it is found in the PvE content of the game. Equipment is used to augment the power of various cards in your collection to give them additional effects, stats, or abilities. Equipment is only active in PvE content and has no effect on cards in a PvP setting.
Equipment has four different tiers of quality, each designating its approximate rarity:
Equipment can be found in your Inventory Stash, or also in the Card Manager under the equipment tab at the top of the screen.
How to Use
Equipment has one of six types of slots:
Only one type of equipment may be equipped per slot type and can be equipped by double-clicking the equipment in the Card Manager screen. This will display the equipment in the appropriate slot in the bottom right portion of the screen.
How to Find Equipment
Equipment can be gained from many different sources.
- Adventure Zone Packs earned from encounters in the PvE Campaign
- The Frost Ring as a reward for defeating Bosses
- From a Treasure Chest that players get after purchasing a Booster Pack.
- Equipment can also be purchased from other players on the Auction House.
What equipment does
Equipment is exclusive to the PVE campaign. Every piece of equipment in the game is associated with a card. Its effect is related to the card it is attached to, improving it in some way by reducing its cost or changing the way it functions to create different deck-building opportunities. As your appreciation for specific cards grow, you’ll definitely want to chase down the associated equipment to make your favorites even better. Each card has two or three pieces of equipment. Collect them all!
How equipment works
When you gain a piece of equipment, it goes into your collection of cards that can be used in building a deck. Each champion has six equipment slots (Helmet, Armor, Gloves, Boots, Weapon, Trinket) and each piece of equipment is one of these types. In any particular deck, a champion can equip one of each type of equipment, totaling six pieces. When making a deck, you’ll have to decide whether you want to double or triple down on specific cards or spread your equipment choices over many different cards to insure more cards in your deck are improved.
Other things you can do with equipment
In some cases, when you equip items in the right combinations for a specific deck you will complete a set bonus! Completing a set bonus will confer additional benefits to the cards involved or even provide additional cards you can then include in that deck.
