There are several types of gear in Revelation Online, each of which is suitable for certain classes. Swordmages and Spiritshapers wear cloth clothing, Gunslingers and Occultists wear leather armor, Vanguards and Blademasters wear plate armor. All classes also have exclusive types of weapons. For example, only Spiritshapers can deftly handle magic bells, and only Gunslingers can manage powerful sniper rifles. All this needs to be taken into account when forming groups, in order to balance the number of contenders for the types of gear.
