Max Equipment Bonuses

From Fallen London Wiki
Crown2.png

This guide is meant to help identify the best equipment in each slot for providing particular stat bonuses (a.k.a. best-in-slot, or BiS). It also lists equipment for reducing (or increasing) Menaces, and equipment with more specialized effects.

The guide is divided into three main sections:

  • Best-in-Slot Calculator — For a chosen stat, displays the item(s) providing the highest bonus in each equipment slot. Stats include the four main attributes (Watchful, Shadowy, Dangerous, Persuasive), Reputation attributes/BDR (Bizarre, Dreaded, Respectable), and the Advanced Stats. The calculator can also exclude certain types of equipment, such as Ambition-specific items or ones only available by spending Fate.
  • Menace Equipment — These items can reduce or increase Menace qualities, such as Nightmares.
  • Special Equipment — Items boosting more uncommon qualities, such as those used in Knife and Candle; and items conferring qualities like Caprine Authority: that make special cards or options available.

Menace Equipment[edit]

These items affect Menace qualities—either by reducing them (to keep you out of a Menace area like the Mirror-Marches, or get you out faster), or by increasing them. Refer to the Menaces guide for more information on managing your Menaces.
