Comparing Narchillan Gear to Blackstar Gear

While the Narchillan Main Hand has a small increase to base AP, AP against monsters, and Accuracy compared to the DUO Blackstar, the TRI Blackstar is the clear winner over the Narchillan. Narchillan is better than DUO Blackstar Main, however, not at the level of TRI Blackstar Main.

On an improvement scale of 1 to 10,  with 1 = DUO Blackstar, and 10 = TRI Blackstar, Narchillan weapons are at the 4 mark, very close to the midway point between DUO and TRI Blackstar Main Weapon.

DUO Blackstar Main Hand
Blackstar Armor

AP: 106-112
Accuracy: 184

Item Effects

● Extra Damage to All Species +15
● Extra AP against Monsters +12

The Narchillan Armor’s improvement over DUO Blackstar Armor is negligible. Compared to the Narchillan weapons, the Narchillan Armors fall lower on the improvement scale, landing somewhere around 3, less than the midway point between DUO and TRI Blackstar Armor.

Comparing Narchillan Sub-weapon to Kutum

In AP, DP, and ‘Extra AP Against Monsters’ item effect, the Narchillan Sub-weapon is right in the middle between TRI Kutum and TET Kutum. For this reason, I would place the Narchillan Sub-weapon at a 5 on the improvement scale of 1-10.

Narchillan Awakening Weapon Comparison

To get a better idea of how Narchillian compares to other yellow grade gear, let’s compare the Narchillan Aad Sphera to several TET Awakening Weapons, including the new-player only Cliff’s Aad Sphera.

TET Dandelion Aad Sphera

AP: 114-123

Item Effects

Extra Damage to All Species +10

TET Blackstar Aad Sphera

AP: 122-133

Item Effects

Extra Damage to All Species +8
● Extra AP against Monsters +15

Narchillan Aad Sphera

AP: 109-120

Item Effects

Extra Damage to All Species +7
● Extra AP against Monsters +8

TET Cliff’s Aad Sphera

AP: 104-113

Item Effects

● Extra AP against Monsters +10

TET Tuvala Aad Sphera

AP: 106-115

Item Effects

Additional Damage All Species +9

Nesser Aad Sphera

AP: 110-119

Item Effects

Additional Damage All Species +9

As you can see by the graphics above, the Narchillan Aad Sphera is quite good compared to all yellow grade TET Aad Spheras. It is weaker than the TET Blackstar.

 

How Good is Narchillan Gear?

In conclusion, Narchillan gear is a good place holder until you can obtain TET boss gear and TRI Blackstar gear. It is better than TRI boss gear, DUO Blackstar, and TET Tuvala. Keep in mind, however, that Narchillan gear can’t be enhanced, reformed, or sold.

So it’s a good step to obtaining your boss gear dreams!

The big, big, big, major advantage of Narchillan is the cost of obtaining it. Cheap! Super cheap to get by exchanging Naru Gear.
