How To Get 5 Star Equipment In Wo Long

Jacob Woodward

Wo Long, similar to that of other games in the Soulslike genre, tasks you with finding increasingly better equipment to aid you in your boss killing endeavours. As you progress, you’ll naturally begin to find equipment of this ilk, either from defeating various enemies or looting chests that can be found throughout missions.

However, what you may have found is that you may be struggling to locate 5 star equipment in Wo Long. This guide will teach you exactly how to get it as well as some tips as to how to increase your chances of receiving this top-tier gear.

Wo Long 5 Star Equipment: How To Get

5 Star weapons and armour in Wo Long are the pinnacle of gear you can acquire in the game. These will not only provide you with increased attack and defensive stats, you’ll also gain buffs in other areas. To get it though, you may find yourself a bit stuck.

This is because you cannot actually obtain any form of 5 Star gear in your first playthrough. While you might be scratching your head as to why, the reason is likely due to Team Ninja trying to encourage another run through of Wo Long, perfecting your build as you go, and getting those hard to unlock achievements/trophies that were near impossible on your first run.

So, to even gain the chance of securing some 5 Star equipment, you’ll have to complete the game. After this, you’ll unlock New Game Plus as well as Rising Dragon difficulty. You’ll then have to play the new Rising Dragon difficulty where 5 Star equipment will begin to drop. However, it is not common, and you may need some strategies in order to elevate your luck levels.

We’ve got three suggestions to enhance the chances of 5 Star equipment dropping - acquire the Master Smith Hammer, equip gear with high luck, and use Divine Beast Yinglong.

Looking at the first of these, the Master Smith Hammer, this weapon could be crucial in your 5 Star equipment search. This is because when equipped, it increases the chances of enemies dropping equipment when defeated, perfect for use here.

Moving to high luck gear, if you don’t know much about this, essentially when you put on equipment that has a high luck stat, the drop rate of more rare items is increased. Since 5 Star gear is the rarest of the rare, this will definitely aid you here.

Divine Beast Yinglong in Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty

Finally, we’ve got the Divine Beast Yinglong. This Divine Beast is unlocked after completing your first playthrough and has a passive ability similar to that of the Master Smith Hammer. So, if you use the two in combination, you should be getting equipment drops aplenty.
