- Empyrean Armor Reforging
The March update will allow Empyrean Armor to be reforged to item level 109 and then further to item level 119.
Upgrading these items to item level 119 will require items only obtainable through new battle content added to the March version update.
As with artifact and relic equipment upgrades, the items needed to upgrade Empyrean Armor differ based on the armor's current item level.
- New armor for geomancers and rune fencers
New Empyrean-equivalent armor for geomancers and rune fencers will be added.
As with empyrean armor, these new sets can be further enhanced with items earned through the new battle content.
