IntroductionThis guide will hopefully be laying the foundation for you to start off right and get your character progression focused so you don’t end up behind the curve and wishing you had done this or that! Below this introduction you’ll find my Youtube video which serves as a companion piece to this. Since this is somewhat of an in-depth discussion I figured it would be great to have a written guide to accompany the video. This will allow for you to easily refer to specific portions, review data, and reference information without the need to pause a video, search, rewind, etc. This guide was borne of a much less specific request from a friend of mine. I was asked to create a guide on what players should prioritize first and after thinking about that for a while I decided this, “it depends on what you want to accomplish but regardless of what that is, Revelation Online is a game which prioritizes gear over skill.” So with that being said it is my opinion that the best thing a new player (or character) can do is focus on getting the best gear possible, as soon as possible! This guide will be focusing on getting you a set of gold crafted gear with as little frustration as possible. I won’t be walking you through the quests that you have to go through in order to get to the point where you craft your gear but I’ll be laying it all out for you in regards of to where to get the materials, how much of each material, etc etc… So without wasting anymore time let’s get started!
(But in the meantime you might consider subbing to my Youtube Channel :D)
What to Focus on FirstWithout a doubt, the most asked question is “where do I start?” You start by getting your character to level 20 and running the Darkfall dungeon. Run that dungeon until your eyes bleed and get the best gear you can get from it. Once you’ve got all the best gear you can get from it you keep running that dungeon, roll need on all the gear you can, and then you salvage it! By salvaging the gear you’ll get materials needed to craft your gold set. You should be on the lookout for Hematite-1 in particular since at level 35 you can craft your level 37 gold weapon! Since you’re running Darkfall so much you should have plenty of Demonslayer points so one option is to go to the Demonslayer merchant Little Suri in Sulan and purchase some Hematite-1 if you want. However, it’s suggested that you use Imperial Society merit instead since, as u/hiyono points out, “it’s a HUGE waste [to use Demonslayer points]” and Imperial Society merit points are “much easier to come by and you can collect them in vast numbers very easily.” You can find Stephan Zagar, the Guide Posting merchant (aka Imperial Society vendor) at this location in Sulan.
“I’ve got my gold weapon, now what?”
You’ve crafted your gold weapon?! Awesome! Good job! Congratulations, you’re well on your way!Good, so you’re at least level 35, or you should be…If you’re not then you you should get to level 35 so you can start running Misty Hollow and the Deserted Shrine. These dungeons are imperative to your gold gear crafting success. Run them the maximum number of times possible! If you don’t know how much that is then you can refer to my video here.
Gear and MaterialsSo you’re running these dungeons, doing all your dailies, and you’ve crafted your mainhand gold weapon? Well now it’s time to start really planning for the future! Let’s talk about all the items in your set and the materials you’re going to need to craft it!
Items to be on the Lookout for!Ok, so once you’re able to begin running dungeons you should be on the lookout for the following item(s);
- Soul of Mist
- First Leshy Heart
- Mist of Bright Jade
- Mist of Irregular Pearl
- Mist Flourite
- Mist Sand
Soul of Mist VariationsThat’s because there are variations (1,2) of the Soul of Mist item which can be used to reduce the number of regular Soul of Mists required to purchase the item. For example, let’s say we want to purchase Mist Sand. 1 Mist Sand costs 5 Soul of Mist and 200 Demonslayer points each, in the screenshot you can see I have 3 Soul of Mist – Sand which I can use to offset the number of Soul of Mists needed. If I click the plus button I increase the number the number of soul of mist – sands which then makes the number of Soul of Mists decrease.
Just think of it as a special item discount!So the number one item you should focus on getting is the Soul of Mist item since it’s the main item used to exchange for the materials needed to craft your gold gear. As for the special variations (1,2) of the Soul of Mist, I’ve come across these 2 which are the Soul of Mist – Sand and the Soul of Mist – Flourite.
What Your Gold Set Looks LikeYour gold set will consist of the following items:
- lvl 37 Mainhand (to start)
- lvl 45 Pants
- lvl 45 Earrings x 2
- lvl 46 Offhand
- lvl 46 Chest
- lvl 46 Gloves
- lvl 48 Helmet
- lvl 48 Boots
- lvl 48 Rings x 2
- lvl 49 Necklace
What Materials You NeedAlright, let’s get into how much each piece of gear will cost and how much your full gold set will run you so you have an idea of what you should be aiming for. Keep in mind this is for your level 37 gold weapon, your level 45 – 49 gold armor, and accessories! In this table you can see how much of each item you need in order to craft the gear but not only do I have the total number of materials required, I have the total number of Demonslayer points the materials will cost you (where applicable) as well as the number of Soul of Mists you’ll need to acquire the materials. In case this is a little overkill I’ve summarized the information for you below 😀
|Item||Silverstone||Mist Sand||Mist Flourite||Mist of Irregular Pearl||Mist of Bright Jade||First Leshy Heart||Hematite-1|
|Earring x 2||2||8||8||2||0||48||32|
|Rings x 2||2||0||12||8||0||48||32|
|Material Totals (Individual)||11||20||46||33||7||271||184|
|Soul of Mist (Individual)||0||100||230||165||35||0||0|
|Demonslayer Points (Individual)||0||4000||9200||6600||1400||0||0|
|Total Soul of Mist (Set)||530|
|Total Demonslayer Points (Set)||21,200|
Material Totals & Lists
Materials Shopping ListIn total, you’ll need the following:
|271||First Leshy Heart|
|33||Mist of Irregular Pearl|
|7||Mist of Bright Jade|
Faction Favor Materials Totals & List (Imperial Society)If you wanted to buy all the materials from the same vendors I did then your costs would be, based on your level of favor with the faction, as follows:
|Hematite-1 @ 90 Imperial Society Merit ea||16,560|
|First Leshy Heart @ 20 Imperial Society Merit ea||5,420|
|Silverstone @ 2000 Imperial Society Merit ea||22,000|
Demonslayer Materials Totals & Lists
|Material||Soul of Mists||Demonslayer Points|
|Mist of Irregular Pearl||165||6,600|
|Mist of Bright Jade||35||1,400|
However, that would be if you bought everything normally without having any of those Soul of Mists variations (1,2) I was talking about before. The other thing you can do if you happen to have a large amount of Soul of Mists is substitute them for Demonslayer points. This is similar to substituting the soul of mist variations. Each Soul of Mist can be substituted for 60 Demonslayer points. So keeping that in mind, the number of Demonslayer points needed will come down drastically if you plan for this early on and stock up on the Soul of Mists you receive!

That’s all there is to it! If you follow these steps from the time you create your character then you’ll be ready to craft your gold set in no time at all! I have seen people curious about what order they should craft their gear in and that is completely up to you. It’s your character, what is most important to you? Personally, I think if you follow this guide and save up your materials you’ll be able to craft most of the pieces very quickly so it won’t matter anyway but in the event it does just try to think about what role your character plays. I play a tank so crafting armor will probably be the most important first, the accessories, then weapons. I hope this guide was helpful, make sure to check back every so often to see what’s new! I’ll be releasing more guides over time which will cover some of the ways you can improve your gear and what options there are to upgrade it.
