All About Gear in Dungeon of Elements
A few people asked about the gear in Dungeon of Elements, so I figured we should have a full "discussion" post about it. I will explain how the gear works in DoE, and feel free to ask more questions about it.

WEAPONS: You use your weapon to directly defeat enemies on the screen. Weapon use has a cooldown. Some weapons are AoE. Some weapons have faster cooldown. The AoE shape is different (a long column, a wide row, a square, a cone, etc). Some bosses are immune or take reduced damage from certain weapons as well. So there is actually a lot of decision making here and a lot of varied options. There are 65 different weapons you can craft so there's a lot of variety.

OFFHAND ITEMS: Shields, tri-orbs, skulls, etc. When you use your offhand, the speed massively slows down for a brief period of time. Different offhand items have different slow durations and cooldowns. You need to decide how often you need a "breather" compared to how long you need it.

BOOTS: The better your boots, the slower the base speed. So here, you basically just want the best boots possible (though cosmetics are an option).

CAPSULES: There is enormous variety in the capsules you can craft, and since you can only carry a limited number into battle you have major decisions to make here. Some capsules can only affect certain elements. Some are massively powerful but expensive to craft. You don't want to waste the really powerful ones on dungeons you don't really need them on, but maybe you want to keep at least 1 (like a Rainbow Bomb) in case of emergency.

PETS: Pets have different speeds. Some gather your loot instantly, others wait a few seconds. Maybe you want the fastest pet possible, or maybe you want the loot to hang around for you to build on. Or maybe you just want the cutest looking pet. Or maybe you want to control when your loot is gathered (either clicking on it or pressing L) so you don't want a pet.

SUIT ARMOR: We decided to keep this totally cosmetic. So you can look however you want to look.

TIP: On really challenging levels - especially at high difficulties - use your weapon right away when you start a dungeon. Clear some space near the top and get your weapon cooldown going early.
