How they work

Item Advantages Disadvantages
Watcher's Blade

Causes Cornered and Off-balance

Can make Horn of Wisdom instantly usable as a Quick Action

Allows Algrim's Rage to make follow-up attacks when an ally is killed

Requires an ally to be killed to be fully useful  

Single Target Attack

Algrim's Rage Area attack with Fatal Blow

Able to make follow-up Attacks when Stamina is nearly full (Invigorated)

Low damage

Invigorated is difficult to attain 

Horn of Wisdom Stacking buff boosts all stats

May be used repeatedly if Watcher's Blade is also equipped

Restores stamina to team

Heals team when agent is killed

Cooldown is long if Watcher's Blade is not equipped

Long cooldown prevents Horn of Wisdom/Effect from being stacked normally

Frigga's Hope Stealthy and causes Bleeding

Requires an ally to be killed to deal better damage

Single target attack

Due to the stats having a difference between players depending on their Agent's Level and Equipment,
Gear stats in the Wiki are now based on a Level 300 Agent equipped with a Generalist's Kevlar Jumpsuit without any Iso-8 slotted on the Uniform and no other items that affect the stats.

Editors must refrain from changing the stats if this is not their Agent setup.

For Customized Gear in addition to the requirements above, editors must have their Customized Gear's Power Level at 300 or greater via Reforging or obtaining the Gear at the required Level. It is recommended to use obtaining gear.
