From sepcial abilities, to buffing up one's avatar, Gear Sets are vital to dominating in the world overrun by enemy factions. For those looking to score the best of the best, there's a few things players need to be aware of before seeking out their desired gear. 

At this time, there are three Gear Sets available as part of the Tidal Basin update:
