The Ahkum Armor Set, a New Blue Armor Set with 2 slots and set bonus with Blue Awakenings


A new Blue Armor Set has been added in BDO KR along with the new region, Drieghan. The new Armor Set, the Ahkum Armor Set, is obtainable anywhere in Drieghan.

The Ahkum Armor Set can be closely compared to the Lemoria Armor Set, which was added along with the Kamasylvia expansion. It is commonly accepted that the Ahkum Armor Set is better than the Lemoria Set, because Ahkum Armor pieces have 2 crystal slots while Lemoria Armor pieces have only 1 slot. In addition, the Ahkum Armor set can be Reformed to become a Yellow Armor Set.

Unlike the Lemoria Armor Set, which has a set bonus with Liverto weapons, the Ahkum Armor Set has a set bonus with any Blue Awakening weapons. The set bonuses are All Evasion +5 (3 pieces), Max HP +150, All Damage Reduction +5 (4 pieces), and All AP +7 (5 pieces).


Other stats including DP are not much different from the stats for Lemoria Armor. However, an unreformed Ahkum piece has lower stats compared to Lemoria (at PEN).

Unfortunately, it seems like the Ahkum Armor Set is not going to be as popular as expected, even though the Armor Set has two crystal slots instead of one. Blue gear is usually expensive, so it is not easy to repair the max durability, and therefore is not easy to enhance.

Even the set bonus is not that attractive, as the majority of players tend to use reformed green weapons and then move on to Dandelions. Plus, now there is another yellow Awakening weapon called the Dragon Slayer. The Dragon Slayer is craftable, so anyone who puts in some time and effort will get the weapon eventually. As players can move on to the Dragon Slayer instead of the extremely hard-to-get Dandelion, Blue Awakening weapons will be less frequently used and so will the new Armor Set that has set bonuses with Blue Awakening weapons.

    Is there any image of the armor? Or does it have a normal design like heve/grunil? I really liked how the lemoria looks and would love some diversity

      Hi, here's a screenshot of the Ahkum Armor (on Sorc&Musa). It does not have a unique look like the Lemoria Armor does :(

      Not sure why you'd spread false information. I happened to get it to drop and it looks the same on my Musa as it does on my Striker. For non-cash armor it looks pretty legit.

      Hello, I just checked again and the Akum Armor looks like this on my Musa, just like you said. The screenshot in the original comment was taken when the armor just came out in Korea.
