Angry Earth Ward Tank Gear

This is a guide to finding useful Angry Earth Ward Tank Gear in the New World MMO.

When you are looking to progress as a Tank and begin doing Mutated Expeditions, it becomes essential to use gear that has specific Wards so you can reduce your damage to certain enemy types.

In this guide we are going to be focussing on the gear you need for fighting with Angry Earth that include the Angry Earth Ward perk.

Angry Earth enemies can be found inside Barnacles and Black Powder and Genesis, so this gear would be ideal for progressing those from Mutation 1 to 10.

This gear is not “Best in Slot” but it is fairly easy to farm, named gear which drops in Heavy Armor and will be really useful to get you started in the Mutated Expeditions.

This gear is looted at purple quality, but when you upgrade it to 600 Gear Score, it gains an additional perk and becomes Legendary gold quality.

For your Shield, Weapons and Jewellery:

There are not any other good options when it comes to other weapons with an Angry Earth Bane perk, while there are some named drops, they are hard to obtain.

With your Shield, it highly depends on how you are setup – I usually go with Sturdy, Sturdy Energy and Refreshing/Any.

Jewellery used for fighting Angry Earth doesn’t really have any specific requirements so you can use any jewellery you like but I would suggest making sure to have Health on Amulets, Hearty on Rings and Refreshing Toast on Earring as a minimum.
