    Update: Thanks to Killersquirelz, there is no actual cap on the seals currently, and the seals also drop from the newer Trial, Trials of the Death God.


    Primal Gear is the newest high item level gear at 500 item level per piece!(as of November 2017)
    Primal Gear is bind on pickup to account.
    Note: You only need the Head, Chest, Arms, and Feet. The Rings aren't required for the achievement.
    Note: You do NOT need to buy a set that matches your class! I just bought all 4 pieces for a different class and got the achievement. And, you should definitely be able to mix classes as well as long as you get each unique armor piece(head, chest, arms, legs).

    You get Primal Gear by trading in Seals of the Brave to the Seals of the Brave vendor just into Port Nyanzaru.

    Seals of the Brave only drop from the Tomb of the Nine Gods dungeon. There's a weekly cap limit of 400, and maximum storage of 1200, similar to other currencies like Ichor, etc.
    The current drop rates are 10 Seals each from the 3 bosses, then 20 each from the two chests at the end. A total of 70 Seals max per run, so you need to do ~26 runs total.

    The Chest piece costs 600 Seals of the Brave.
    The other 3 pieces are 400 Seals of the Brave each.

    The Primal gear has a good mix of stats toward the general stats each class generally goes for: my GWF's gear focuses on Crit, Power, and Arm Pen. My DC's gear focuses on Crit, Recovery, Arm Pen, etc.
    Primal Gear has a mix of bonuses related to doing high damage or killing enemies, which then grants a variety of buffs for a short time.

    Helm: When you damage or heal your target for more than 15% of your Max HP in a single blow, you gain 1% of your HP back.
    Chest: When you damage or heal your target for more than 15% of your Max HP in a single blow, you gain 1% Def for 10 seconds. (Max stack 5)
    Arms: When you damage or heal your target for more than 15% of your Max HP in a single blow, you gain 1% Power for 10 seconds. (Max stack 5)
    Feet: When you kill an enemy, you gain 3% Action Points.


    In addition, the 4 different Primal rings all are item level 500, double-slotted, but no double defense or offense slots. And no Crit/Power combo, just Crit/Arm Pen, Crit/Rec, Power/Rec, and HP/Defl.

    Primal Assault Ring: Crit/Arm Pen: When you kill an enemy, your Power increases by 1% for 10 seconds.
    Primal Raid Ring: Crit/Rec: When you kill an enemy, your Power increases by 1% for 10 seconds.
    Primal Restoration Ring: Power/Rec: When you kill an enemy, your Power increases by 1% for 10 seconds.
    Primal WardRing: HP/Defl: When you kill an enemy, your Power increases by 1% for 10 seconds.

    Shadow 00 FoxPer character, which means that's a good idea if the temporary no cap gets fixed soon.

    Shadow 00 FoxYes, every other set allows mixing, in fact, even allows pieces that don't match classes to work. So yes, mixing raid/assault works. The achievement triggers are very generous for these armor sets!

    Raptor DEM0NCan be the pieces mixed?

    E.g. 2 raid and 2 assault.

    P.S: Ty.

    JappeYes they can be mixed. And I actually bought all the pieces for my TR with my OP and got the achievement right when I bought the last piece with my OP. So it doesn't even need to be your own class.

    I got 685 in this week but some guy was telling me has 1200 this week so it's just random I guess

    KillersquirelzCurrently there's no actual cap, and you can just keep earning seals. I'm not sure if they'll ever fix it. I've grinded out a lot of T9's for the double refinement and got two pieces in a week. You might also want to add that you can get Seals from CoDG too.

    TruneToday, it can be obtained through Crown Seals in the central market of "Protector´s Enclave". These Seals can be obtained from the "Heroic Encounters" in "Well of Dragoons".

    Golden SequenceAs of mod 19 it is looking like this is no longer available through the seals store

    Blue RadiumThere's a Community Manager on the game's official forums who helped get Doer of Deeds and Great Deeds fixed - was willing to openly admit that achievements being unobtainable isn't acceptable, said they'd advocate for a fix. 3 months later there was a fix.

    Might be worth getting a big thread going and rallying people to post on it.
