Mastering’s Merge System – Tips and Strategies

Mastering's Merge System - Tips and Strategies'

Before we conclude, here are some vital tips for mastering the art of merging equipment:

Be Proactive About Merging 

  • Don’t just hoard duplicate items. As soon as you have the required pieces, merge them up! Having top-tier gear is pivotal.

Prioritize Key Gear Types 

  • While all gear is important, I’d recommend focusing merges first on weapons > armor > utility items like grenades. Offense and defense should be priorities.

How to Farm Merge Materials The best ways to acquire merge fodder are:

  • Thorough looting of all areas
  • Completing levels/challenges
  • Purchasing equipment packages with in-game currency

  • While merged gear is amazing, don’t neglect putting skill points into your character’s core abilities as well. Ideally, you’ll want a balance of incredible gear and maxed-out skills.

  • After every level or play session, take a moment to merge any duplicates you’ve acquired. Chipping away slowly but consistently is key.

Case Study: Joe’s Legendary Grind

To illustrate the power of merged gear, let’s look at a case study of an experienced player named Joe and his journey to obtaining a legendary rifle.

Joe had been playing for a few months and was stuck on one of the harder combat levels. No matter how he allocated his skill points, he just couldn’t seem to beat the challenging enemy waves.

That’s when Joe realized he needed to focus on merging his weapons. His current rifle was an excellent+2 purple model that was just not cutting it against the level’s armored enemies.

Following the steps outlined earlier, Joe painstakingly merged materials over weeks of grinding to reach these milestones:

  1. Excellent+2 -> Epic: Sacrificed two identical excellent+2 rifles.
  2. Epic -> Epic+1: Combined two of his new epic rifles.
  3. Epic+1 -> Epic+2: Used two epics and his remaining epic+1.
  4. Epic+2 -> Epic+3: Merged two epic+2 rifles and his last epic+1.
  5. Epic+3 -> Legendary: Finally, he combined two of his epic+3 rifles.

The effort was grueling, but the payoff was immense. Joe’s newfound legendary rifle utterly dominated that previous level:

  • +75% Damage vs Armored Targets (Unlocked legendary perk)
  • +50% Increased Damage (From stat increases)
  • 20% Chance to Shoot Explosive Rounds

Coupled with his existing skills, Joe’s legendary rifle turned the tide. What was an impossible level became a cakewalk. He could finally progress!

Joe’s experience proves that while earning legendary gear is difficult, it’s an absolute game-changer. Putting in the work to merge your equipment is essential for overcoming’s toughest challenges.
