Gear Score is currently up to date for: Patch:6.4#Hotfix 46Last updated on the current Patch/Hotfix. Information is up to date.


Each item in your team's inventory is worth a particular Gear Score value. The highest Gear Score across your whole team is then used to place you into 1 of 3 brackets used for Match Making.

Items in your inventory that aren't equipped also contribute to this Gear Score, even excess consumables.

Item's Gear Score

Different Items provide different Gear Scores.

Note: Stacks of items count gear score for each item in the stack. For example, a stack of 3x Poor Potions will contribute 3x3=9 gear score.

Misc are any items that cannot be equipped by anyone such as Coin Purses, Arrows, Bolts, Treasure, Hunting Loots, etc.


Ironmace can change this very easily due to matchmaking being server sided , so this information can easily get out of date.

Currently there appear to be 2 brackets.

Those brackets are:

  • Low Gear Bracket(0-299)
  • High Gear Bracket 300+

Game will take the gear score of the highest player and put you in that bracket.
