July Preview – Freedom In Essos

 |  By 

As Unsullied, we are taken from our mothers, we are shown our greatest fears, and we are told to kill children to earn our shield. This one has fought many wars for the masters since. Meereen, Yunkai, Astapor, all cities of Slaver’s Bay, we bleed to keep our masters rich. But today, no more. Today, we Unsullied fight for freedom.

New Gear Set: Chainbreaker

Introducing the third gear set of Season 9, the Chainbreaker gear set is releasing alongside the Freedom In Essos event arc! As with other gear sets contained in this season, high-level gear pieces have 9 stat slots, providing you with even more buffs.

The Chainbreaker gear set centers around Cavalry Combat and features stats that apply in all situations as well as ones that are specific to PvP and Seats of Power. Additionally, you’ll find stats that will help your Cavalry troops counter Ranged troops a bit easier!

Here’s a full list of stats featured in this month’s gear set:

  • +Cavalry Attack/Defense/Health
  • +Cavalry Attack/Defense/Health Vs. Players
  • +Cavalry Attack/Defense/Health Vs. Players Seats of Power
  • +Cavalry Attack/Defense Vs. Players Ranged
  • +Marcher Cavalry Attack/Defense/Health Vs. Players
  • +Marching Speed Vs. Seats of Power
  • +Marching Speed Vs. Players
  • +Max March Size

In terms of the visual design of this gear set, players have been very vocal about Cavalry mains never receiving an elegant set. We’ve heard your feedback and we’re dedicating the Chainbreaker’s Crystal Tiara to Crystal from our Player Council who brought this to our attention at last year’s Game of Thrones Fan Convention!

New Dragon Gear Piece: Regal Serpent Peytral

This month in July, complete the Regal Serpent Dragon Gear Set when the Peytral is available to craft on July 17th! The Peytral will provide bonuses to your Dragon Infantry stats, complementing the Dragon Cavalry and Dragon Infantry stats obtained from the other set pieces. This will be a great set to use for your mixed army!

Players and take advantage of his other Cavalry Attack and Defense skills against Seats of Power.

Here’s a breakdown of his skills:
