Ever felt like the sword you're using was supposed to be for a barbarian?
Ever felt like the clothes you were wearing were probably an assassin's hand-me-downs?
WELL LOOK NO FURTHER!
Tsuniko's comprehensive HOX SPECIFIC guide for all your phat loot needs is here!
I will only list items that have a DIRECT benefit to a HoX (+fire damage etc). Generic gear that can be useful to other classes will not be listed here as they are common and you can find those on you're own.
HoX can use 4 types of weapons: Two-Handed Swords, Crossbows, Daggers and Talismans. The main weapon that is linked to HoX combos is the Two-Handed Sword an currently even though there are epic HoX daggers and Talismans, there is nothing really to support them in the HoX toolset. Crossbows are mainly just for pulling and doing damage when you cannot melee.
Unfortunately, HoX don't get a complete set of armour that is specifically for them until level 40 so until then, just use what you can find since it doesn't really matter anyway.
Dark Ember Set
You can find this any level between 40 and 69, it drops off bosses in epic modes of playfields. The best place to get such a set would be Fields of the Dead, the haunted Forest. There is a large concentration of bosses inside there and you can bag yourself a neat set of level 50ish armour there that can last you until your mid 60s. The armbands, belt, wrist and boots are also BoE which means you can probably find them on the trader rather than going out yourself to hunt them. The rest is BoP so you must do the killing yourself for the better pieces.
P.S. One of the best armour sets in terms of looks by FAR. Easily worth farming just for social purposes.
This is the new culture armour set for level 78/79 that was added a while ago. Looks horrible and stats aren't brilliant (Only the gloves and cap are worth getting imo) but if you are a collector freak then here is the set listed for you .
Obtained in a similar way to the Dark Ember set, you have to kill epic bosses level 70+ for these. Most common way to get this set is to go to kheshetta in an epic instance and kill bosses there. Again only the hood, robes, gloves and pants are BoP, you can buy the rest.
This is obtained by killing bosses in the level 80 group dungeons: Onyx Chambers and Atzel's Fortress. It's actually no better than the Wildfire set (probably worse in fact) and its harder to get, but if you're looking to be original or just want it for the sake of it here is where to get it.
Obtained from PvP vendors, this set can only be worn when you have the correct PvP level and is the best set to wear while PvPing apart from possibly the head, wrists and gloves (which could be tier armour) depending if you want damage or invulnerability. Once the re-itemisation patch hits I will probably expect the PvP armour to be better outright.
Here is a screenshot provided by Kentarii of the full HoX T1 set: Ardent Fire Set
Infernal Zeal Set (Tier 2)
This is obtained by killing various bosses in the Black Ring Citadel instance, wings 1-3. You must have killed Vistrix and completed the level 80 destiny quest to obtain access to the Black Ring Citadel. Currently the best PvE armour set available.
N.B. I cant seem to find any pictures of the T2 bracers, if anyone could post them that would be greatly appreciated.
