    Default Dual Spec Guide.

    This is an updated guide on how to dual spec, the older version and system is no longer applicable.

    What is a "Dual Spec"?

    A dual spec is having the correct stat point build to allow you to equip 2 kinds of end game gear, be it strength, int, or dex gear.
    All you need to do is have the correct amount of base stat points to equip your gear, then voila!

    Note: This guide has been updated to be in line with the new system of dual spec-ing. The old system of using boosters is no longer useful. The lower level gear requirements have been fixed, feel free to dual spec starting at any level. The Lv 50 example here is just for reference, the concept is the same.

    How do I dual spec?

    1. Decide what 2 stats or kinds of gears you want to use at end game (level 50+).

    Popular choices are :
    • Pally- A mage with enough Strength and Intelligence to equip either Str/Int gear.
    • Dexchantress - A mage with enough Dex and Intelligence to equip either Dex/Int gear.
    • War bird - A bird with enough Strength and Dex to equip either Strength/Dex gear.
    • Dex/Bow Bear - A bear with enough Strength and Dex to equip either Strength/Dex gear.
    2. Once you have decided what kind of character you want to make, you need to respec your character to get the correct amount of stat points needed.

    The new system of dual spec-ing no longer relies on boosters. Everything relies on your base stat points.

    That said, to dual spec now is as easy as ABC.



    3. Let's say you want to use a 50 strength armour, all you need to have is 120 base str, that's it. Same thing with 50 dexterity armour, all you need is 120 base dex, that's it. With 120 Str/120 Dex, you can wear all 50 strength armours, all 50 dexterity armours, or mix and match.

    The same principles apply to 55 gear and 60 gear, you just need the right base stats to wear the gear. End of story.



    4. Save your sets to your loadouts, and done!

    Dual spec complete.

    Beat me to one. However... Ill add some missing details if I see any.

    Question: are you suggesting manually putting on lv50 gear after booster loadouts? I got a booster loadout AND lv50 loadout for str and int on my Mage.

    note: for my loadouts on lv50 gear, cosmos is wand and eye and rift is shield and cutter. i DO have to manually put on the 2h weapons, but not my whole setup. if i want to switch, i press -str- and then rift, and if I want hammer that is all i manually put on.

    notice no hat for my -int-

    Hi!

    Right now, no, the only booster you need is the lower level pink gear that bring up your stats to 154.

    After 154, you should be able to equip any of the Void/Cosmos/Rift helmets which bring up your stats to 158.

    After 158, you should be able to equip any of the one-handed weapons, armours, and shields. Its just the two-handed ones that are a bit tricky.

    You're welcome!

    Yes, most of the work is getting the boosting gear. Though they aren't THAT expensive now, and if you can afford 2 sets of the premium pink level 50 gear, the boosting gear shouldn't be a problem.

    well i hope my list of images showed something.

    added in one with my loadout page, sorry forgot that one. so as you can see, i can quickly go from booster-int to cosmo wand and eye, and from booster-str to cutter and force kite shield. only have to manually put on the 2h weapon when needed.

    also, check my stats out lol. int is interesting.

    Yeah, isn't that what I put in the guide? From booster stat to the 50 gear? Unless it wasn't clear, I'll change it.

    Yeah, I've noticed that with others too. Same with strength, they use one of the mage buffs to reach the minimum. Though I find that tedious and this more hassle free :P One or two stat points won't make THAT much of a difference anyway. Maybe if it were 10 or so..

    Ikr? Too serious IMO. If you just start out and miss those buffs you'd probably be naked. -.- lol

    I'm not exactly sure how, but I'm able to Dual-spec a Warbird with stats 122 strength and 132 dexterity using no Osiris. It doesn't add up with the math, but there it is. With 4 Osiris I could do it with 118 Str... And the extra Dex helps. Maybe I'll re-distribute my stats and try it some time.

    (I might add a pic later.)

    Do you just use one booster set?

    Well I want to have as much Dex a possible so when naked I use a quickload full of +7 Dex to get to my MB set which is also loaded.

    The weird thing is that my Str booster quickload only gets my Str up to 150. Yet I can still switch to my Rift set quickload. It makes me wonder exactly how the equipment save-slots work...

    Fair enough, thats what I did with my mage before I had a rift set to dual with. I just gave it enough int to use my loadout for a keeper staff.

    About your strength, that is just weird. Even with 150 you can't equip any of the Rift gear, so I don't know how that works. lol

    I have the rift set saved in a slot from before when I could use them. And although now with my Str loadout I can't equip any rift items individually, I can still ewuipc the set.

    I'm guessing when using a loadout it calculates the rift/void/cosmos stats in before deciding whether you can actually use them or not. I've tested things, and the lowest possible Str to equip the set is 150. So the lowest possible base Str for dualing using a rift set is 118 if you use 4 +8 items. (in theory)

    Interesting. It could be possible since you also use 4 +8 items, I just got used to using 4 +7 ones.
