Hi Agents! The Division 2‘s Title Update 8 Brand Sets, Gear Sets, and Exotics, have all been overhauled. Trying to identify what these changes are, what they were before, and how they effect your builds now, can be a bit overwhelming.
To help with this, we have put together several tables of contents, which will continue to be updated as new brand/gear sets are identified/introduced into the game, and with the introduction of new exotics.
The tables you can find below include:
- Old Brand Sets versus Overhauled Brand Sets
- Overhauled Brands Sets on their own
- New Brand Sets (that we have identified)
- Overhauled Gear Sets
- Overhauled and New Exotics
We hope these tables will help you to decided on what brand set pieces you wish to farm for. Additionally, I have included below the tables, a complete list of which talents you can now get on backpacks and chest pieces so you can work that into the equation.
These have been added as images to the article instead of inserted tables, so you can click and save them to your phone for easy reference.
Old Brand Sets versus Overhauled Brand Sets
Overhauled Brands Sets
New Brand Sets
Overhauled Gear Sets
Overhauled and New Exotics
That’s a lot gear I know, however if you start with the brand sets and circle the bonuses that you are interested in, then select two talents from below that compliment them, you have the makings of a build to go farm for.
