There is a huge amount of buzz from the community as we hear about the new Crimson Steel Gear! This Gear is brand new and as of yet the only way you are able to get it is through grinding. Crimson Steel completes the Crimson Circle by providing a Crimson Gear set to complement our Majestic Set. However, when we look at this gear set it is a little different from your typical Crimson Set. What is the buzz and why is this gear so important? Today we will take a look at the differences and do a side by side comparison of your Crimson Steel Gear to your Majestic Gear.

A Closer Look
When we look at the previous Crimson Gears that set what we really saw was a gear that was flipped from focusing on building the individual’s stats to gear that debuffed your enemy. For example, with Slaughter, the Crimson set kept the Infantry attack but lost the Infantry HP, Infantry Defense, and Troop Atack in favor of Cavalry Debuffs. Crimson Steel is similar with some key differences that we will explore with you today.
Introducing Crimson Steel Gear
When we look at Crimson Steel we see that instead of adding debuffs and losing your own stats. We are actually losing some debuffs but increasing Troop HP and adding in Troop Defense. This gear is introduced to us by the game with this statement:
An Equipment set specialized to defend against enemies
We have seen the statement that gear was intended for defense before, so what makes this gear different? Well, let’s take a closer look at the stats before we dive into the details. We have created a chart comparing Majestic Gear to the new Crimson Steel Gear.
In this chart, you can see our Majestic Gear side by side with our Crimson Steel Gear. Remember that this only looks at unenhanced Immortal Gear not the numbers for the enhanced gear. We will cover the stats more and the details more in just a minute.
Now that we have had a closer look at the stats that are available in Crimson Steel gear let’s take the chance to really break this down and cover everything you really want to know from where to get this gear to the implications of this gear for play.
Where can I find Crimson Steel Gear?
Currently, the ability to obtain Crimson Steel Gear is limited. You can obtain this gear in two places:
- Points Event- Crimson Steel Material Chest can be obtained as an achievement reward in points events.
- Common Monster Hunt- Obtain Equipment materials by hunting Majestic Wendigo, Majestic Crampus.
As with previous sets of gear, I am sure we will see this gear in the Gold Store eventually, however, for now, get out there and check your events and get to killing those monsters so that you can build up your own set of Crimson Steel Gear to equip to your Guard Captain.
What is the difference when we look at the set bonuses for this gear?
Like with the previous Crimson Gear we will see differences in the early set bonuses but beyond the Immortal Set Bonus, the bonuses will remain the same. For the sake of this gear, we will take a side by side look at the Base Set and Immortal Set Bonuses.
We can again see that the biggest differences are that we flip from a focus on Debuffs in Majestic to stats for the defender in the Crimson Steel Gear Set.
What are the implications of Crimson Steel Gear?
For a while, players have talked a lot about the lack of viable defense gear which has led to some creativity when it comes to defense. This New Gear Set makes defense more viable by increasing the HP and adding in defense without sacrificing the attack. As players begin to obtain and test this gear hopefully we will see the possibilities of trap setups expand.
Coffee and Conversation
There is a huge variety of playstyles in Iron Throne. We see accounts that range anywhere from small to quite large. We all have a place we fit and knowing where we fit and how to build at that level is essential to being able to increase your enjoyment of the game. For that purpose, we are taking a look at how to build your account whether you are little or small!
To help us do that we have two friends that joined us for a LIVE conversation and we got the chance to grill about their accounts and their setups and strategy behind that. We recorded that conversation. So you can go back and listen again or hear it for the first time!
If you are wondering why we are including this in our article about Crimson Steel. Well, we spent a lot of time talking to Tanz about her perspective as a smaller player and grinding and picking packs wisely. We also spent time talking to Twist about his perspective as a bigger player and what is most important to him and what he is looking for when hitting someone.
During this conversation, we spent a lot of time on Gear. We heard all about Twists’ Radiant Gear and we heard thoughts on what gear is worth it for defense and what gear is not. We are going to be having another Coffee and Conversation soon with some exciting guests with a focus on defense but in the meantime be sure you do not miss out on this last one.
Do not miss out on so many articles and video’s on our site with a ton of information! Are you looking for more information on gear? We provided a ton of links earlier in the article. However, we have more!
Curious about the earlier sets of Crimson Gear? We have an article that took an early look at the initial Crimson Gear with side by side comparisons.
