IV Nouver vs IV Kutum AP Chart

 

Your first AP Bonus

You will receive your first AP bonus at 100 Sheet AP and next bonus will be given at 140 Sheet AP.
Refer to the AP Bracket Table for more information.

Note: AP Bonuses varies depending on the AP you have. That is why veterans aim to at least get to 268 Sheet AP to get the +122 AP Bonus.

Kutum vs Nouver

This debate has been on since the the introduction of AP Brackets was added to the game.
And experts (Those guys who made charts and calculates the AP ratio) settled in Kutum is better If you reach 270+ Sheet AP. Because the AP Bonus is the same as wearing nouver but your DP increases while wearing Kutum.

So for now, if you are catching up just use Nouver until you can reach the 270 AP mark.

Do DP Bracket Matters?

If you're doing Tier 1, DP is capped at 320. But do not neglect this, DP is as important as AP. The class that most benefited from DP is Shai. However, this does not stop you from building a DP character of your liking.

Other players from top guilds already reached 20% DR mark with more than 270 Sheet AP. Imagine that, facing that kind of player in a PvP is like hitting world bosses.
