Set Badges Doubt

Well this may be dumb but i cannot solve it myself, so here it goes. I have 4 badges from the same set, i think it's for characters that have Iron Skin trait. And those 4 pieces belong to different classes, i mean they show up on A, B, C and D classes on the badges screen. I only manage to equip 3 of them on my best hunter... i took all badges from him and i get no messages saying you can only have bonuses to the same Attribute on 3 items. Also, i took all these 4 set badges out of the survivores that were using them too.

Am i missing something or should i be able to equip the 4 of them?

    You can only equip 3 badges of the same type eg, Damage, Crit chance, Health etc

    You need 4 badges from the same set to get the 20% bonus. The sets are A,B,C,D and E.

    You can use only 3 badges of same category for 1 survivor. Eg: You can use only 3 health badges on same survivor.

    Perhaps I did not explain myself right. I know I cannot equip 3 badges of the same category. The badges I have right now for the "Survivor has Iron Skin" are:
    - A: Critical Damage 5% (not equipped)
    - B: Damage 8% (not equipped)
    - C: Critical Damage 5% (equipped on the right Hunter)
    - D: Critical Damage 15% (equipped on the right Hunter), Critical Damage +421 (equipped on the right Hunter)

    So the badge with Damage 8% should be available, no?

    Well it's stupid but I think i got it. The remaining Iron Skin set items that are not equipped can only go into the 3 badge slots that already have Iron Skin badges. But if that's the issue, why are they split into A to E? And when I get a new badge, how do I know in which of these 6 slots it goes to?

    Not sure if I am answering your question but each badge is shaped differently to go in 1 of the 6 slots. I refer to the shapes as right: top, center, bottom and left: top , center, bottom. The shape around the symbol on the inside denotes the category, the overall shape of the badge denotes the slot.

    Each badge can only fit in one of six slots. You can see which direction the badge faces to see this. As @I_Am_Psycho said, you can only have 3 of the same effect on any one survivor.
    Regarding the badge type (A,B,C, etc) you want to try to use all (or atleast four) of one type in order to get a 20% bonus.

    Thanks a lot guys. It's is harder than I thought, to get set bonuses that is...
  • DLichDLich Member Posts: 5,541
    There's 6 positions (top right, middle right, bottom right, top left, middle left, bottom left)

    There's 5 sets (A, B, C, D, E)

    There's 5 Traits (Critical Chance, Critical Damage, Basic Damage, Health, Damage Reduction)

    You can only equip one position at a time
    You can only equip up to 3 of the same trait at a time
    If you have at least 4 of the same set, that set gets a 20% bonus (if you have 5 or 6 of the same set all get the bonus)

    Also- the "set" is the shape in the center of the badge (circle, x, cross, hexagon, or the 8 pointed thing). It has nothing to do with the special effect (like bonus for iron skin, for example).

    About the 20% bonus set.
    the calculation is:
    20% critical domage + 20% bonus set = 40?
  • David_H79David_H79 Member Posts: 1,866
    it's 20% from 20% = 24%
  • winrywinry Member Posts: 10

    Once the 20% bonus is applied, it updates the numbers sown for the badge, so if you have a set, the 2% bonus is included in the number shown for the badge. What is NOT updated is if you meet the 'green condition' for an additional bonus.
