The Imperator (VM7) gear set replaces Starfall (VM6) as the new best-in-slot gear in the Ninja patch.

See the Starfall (VM6) page for post-buff stats.

New Jewelry Sets

Two new jewelry sets have been added: the Vain (Accessories) set and the Maze (Accessories) set. In addition, a new brooch, Quatrefoil Brooch, is available to be crafted.

The Vain accessory set drops from dungeons, and includes Tier 1 (Gate) and Tier 2 (Vain) pieces for both earring and ring. There are only two variations of MAze Accessories: Critical and Power.


This set is the first crafted jewelry set and intended for PVP use. Sporting equal stats as Vain Tier 2 jewelries, it requires battleground credits from both Bellicarium and Killing Spree.


This new brooch is a new upgraded brooch that combines all the previous brooches into one.

This patch includes the following KTERA patches:
1/26, 2/18, 2/25, 3/10


  1. This patch tldr version: Go fuck urself if u dont have vm7 or full +15 sf

    • Unfortunately, yes, the struggle to meet ilvl requirements is very real. Even +12 Starfall is often not enough; you need either full +12 Slaughter (which may be worse for some classes/people), or many +15 Starfall pieces. VM7 is still an optional luxury but VM7 is really good for tank players.

  2. Question. I do more pve than pvp. however, would be better to do a mix Conflate/Slaugther. gear for pve? I mean, Conflate has a higher bases dmg. And the rolls for pve are the same. gloves and boots same story. only chest is different. Slaughter has 6% dmg reduce from monsters, which conflate doesnt and conflate armor has instead 6% pvp dmg reduce. I never aim for any Vm. because +15 is to much grind for me. tnks for ur help.

  3. How does Conflate set compare to Imperator in terms of pvp. I see conflate for sorcerer has higher base damage and has 20% pvp damage while the Imperator disc has 30 pvp attack damage

  4. I know Celestial Arena is a solo dungeon but is there an ilvl requirement for it?

  5. Hi same question as loller but in the 3/10 patch, there are solo dungeon, they will be available ? thank you

  6. i didnt understand well about a thing: i read that we are getting patches til the 3/10 of ktera. so, will be dreadspire still be opened during this patch?

  7. Recommendation: Mention that Quatrefoil Brooch doesn’t share cooldowns with… uhh… Empowered, or whatever. I think I remember seeing that Quatrefoil+Quickcarve is possible, in an edit of one of Story’s google docs.

  8. Will current IoD tokens disappear, remain or be transformed in the new ones? If they remain, will the same stuff be available for purchase or will it change?

    • The old IoD token will no longer drop but will remain in your bank/inventory as is. IoD and Celestial Arena will drop the new token instead.

      You cannot transform the old token to the new one.

      Read the Shade Token sections to see what you can purchase from the new token shop.

      • what what what, so it will be, that the old tokens will not be transformed into the new ones? because i saved them all up, never spent one, just to get instant jewellry?

  9. will vm7 mats drop from sea chests this next patch? or will it still drop vm6 mats.

  10. Really looking forward to this patch. About time NA tera got something new to do. And keeping an eye out for and update of this preview :D, in particular the new brooch ?!
