How to farm Equipment in Blue Archive?

The first step to committing a heist is to look the part.

Resources are difficult to come by in Blue Archive, which is why taking advantage of the game's relatively easy Equipment farming scene can boost your Students' performance by a large margin. Likewise, players don't have to think too hard about gearing up Students as all Equipment and stats are standardized—no RNG involved!

Here's everything you need to know about farming, leveling up, and tiering up Equipment in Blue Archive.

Equipment Basics

Click the Students menu at the bottom of the screen and select a Student to view their information. At the bottom right, you'll find the Equipment section. A Student can wear three pieces of armor, which unlock at the following levels:

  • Firepower (Level 1)—Hat, Gloves, Shoe
  • Endurance (Level 15)—Hairpin, Badge, Bag
  • Auxiliary (Level 35)—Watch, Charm, Necklace

Each Student is assigned an Equipment type under each category. For example, Shun can wear Gloves on her Firepower slot but can't wear Shoes. Once you equip an item, you can no longer remove it.

Equipment stats are fixed, so it's impossible to transfer a Badge's high HP boost to a Hairpin's lower HP boost. That gives Students paired with ideal Equipment a slight advantage over others.

Where to Farm Equipment and Blueprint

Only the base Equipment (T1) can be farmed as a whole from various stages. Clicking on the item will give you a list of stages that drop it. Meanwhile, getting higher Tier Equipment is only possible by upgrading the T1 base using Blueprints.

Likewise, you can farm these from various stages—simply click on the Blueprint to find all the areas that drop it. It's recommended to farm in stages that drop the most items you need to preserve Energy. You need the following Blueprints to Tier up your gear:

  • T2—x15 T2 Blueprint
  • T3—x20 T3 Blueprint
  • T4—x10 T2 Blueprint, x30 T4 Blueprint
  • T5—x15 T2 Blueprint, x20 T3 Blueprint, x35 T5 Blueprint
  • T6—x5 T3 Blueprint, x15 T4 Blueprint, x40 T6 Blueprint

Due to the high cost of higher-Tier Equipment, it's best to focus on gearing up your most-used Students first.
