When you first started playing The Seven Deadly Sins: Grand Cross, you might get overwhelmed by the equipment system of the game. It is a bit different from other gacha games and contains a lot more important information that you need to know.
- SSR equipment (gears) have the highest main stat but all gear qualities can have the same max secondary stats.
- Reroll stats and upgrade items cost Gold.
- The higher quality the item is, the more gold it costs.
- When choosing the best gears for a Hero, you want all of the secondary stats are best for that specific Hero.
- Best Gear Placements:
- SSR gear on the left side.
- C gears on the right side.
- Ensure the main stats of SSR gears on the left side is high.
- Fully awaken C gear +5 is equal to a 3⭐ awaken SSR gear.
You Should Use C-Tier Gears!

This is because you will move those C gears to your association Heroes after you have fully upgraded SSR gears.
Unlocking substats is the easiest way to increase the power of your Heroes.
I have a fully upgraded right-side set for one of my Heroes and now I totally regret doing that because the difference is very small but the costs are much higher.
All you need are 1⭐ Awakening Crystals and 5⭐ Awakening Crystals. This makes the game a lot easier to play, and of course, it’s more efficient.
About farming Awakening Crystal, upgrade your SR/SSR Equipment to +1 then salvage them. After a lot of testings, it’s confirmed that +1 SR/SSR gear provides a great difference. Don’t waste your time on R gears, they are just not even worth it.

Almost all collectible items in The Seven Deadly Sins: Grand Cross have a quality level: C → UC → R → SR → SSR (from weakest to strongest).
Comparing to a C item, an SSR item has better main stat but their sub-stats can be exactly the same.
All gears in the game have a primary stat. The primary stat could be different depending on the position of the equipment.
The value of the primary stat is given randomly, within a certain range.
Bracelet, Necklace, and Belt have better primary stats than Ring and Earings.
The tables below show you the maximum value of each gear/equipment in The Seven Deadly Sins: Grand Cross:
All gears in the game also have 5 additional secondary stats, which are unlocked when you upgrade the gears.
Similar to the main stat, secondary stats have the values within a pre-determined range, depending on their slots.
The secondary stats can be percentage-based, not flat numer like the main stat, and is not based on the item’s quality. For example, an SSR ring and C ring could have the same secondary stats. However, the SSR ring costs more to upgrade than the C ring.
You can reroll the secondary stats. All 5 secondary stats can be the same.
The tables below show you the maximum value that the secondary stats could get:
Bracer / Ring
Neck / Earring
Belt / Orb
Having multiple pieces of the same set will give you extra stats. You should also look for equipment set bonus when equipping gears for your Heroes.

Sometimes, the damage dealers (DPS) could have other options. Just remember to check out your Hero skills first for choosing the most suitable sets for them.
For Crit Heroes, You can decrease the defense potentials and increase the output damage by using 2-set Critical Damage rather than the Defense set. Using 4-set Crit Rate instead of 4-set Attack is viable for some Heroes.
We will recommend the best sets for each Hero in each Hero individual page.
- Players can do Equipment Engraving by visiting Merlin in the Tavern (after Episode 115-1).
- You can only engrave +5 Tier-5 gears.
- Engraving the hero name on the equipment raises the Grade of the Equipment by 1. UR is the max grade for now.
- You can downgrade your equipment to its state before Engraving. However, you cannot get back the used materials.
- The Engraved Equipment can be equipped by any Hero. However, only the heroes with the name on the equipment can get the Engraving Effects.
Equipment Engraving Costs
The Equipment Engraving Stones can be obtained via the Training Dungeon.
Here are some equipment tips for you to have an easier early game.
Rings, Earrings, and Orb: It’s best to fully upgrade your C Rings, Earrings, and Orb. Their secondary stats and primary stats should be the same (Rings=Attack; Earrings = Defense, Orb = HP). Each of them can have a max value of 15%. Most of the time you will have them at 11-12%.
Bracelet, Necklace, and Belt: It’s best to have them at 0-star and +5 SSR quality. You do not need to reroll their main stats yet because you will soon find ones with better main stats. Simply upgrade the better ones you have to +5 and use them. It costs only 15k Gold to upgrade them to +5.
Just play the game slowly as you will get a lot of great SSR items with excellent secondary stats soon.
SR Items or C Items Are Best For Early Game?
It’s not worth it to invest in SR gears too soon because they will be useless and you will have to change to SSR gears instead. All of the gold you invested in upgrading SR gears will be a waste. However, If you focus on C gears during the early game, you won’t have to spend tons of resources.
The lowest main stat of an SSR item is still higher than the highest main stat of that same SR item.
How to get C gears?
You can easily buy C gears from the town vendors. It costs 2,000 Gold each with the exception of Orbs (10,000 Gold).
To get a better main stat, It is cheaper to reroll the main stat of the gear rather than purchasing multiple C gears from the shop.
Which Equipment Stats Are The Best?
If you want to see high CC points, Attack, HP, and Defense are the best ones to look at.
But they are not always the best stats. They are only the safest ones to invest.
Heroes that focus on healing are best when using Recovery Rate gears instead of HP gears.
Heroes that deal Fatal damage are best when using Crit gears instead of Attack gears.
It’s best to understand your Hero abilities and skills first before choosing the best gears for them.
