Some items are not just powerful artefacts on their own. Instead they will provide additional bonuses when being worn with other items of the same set. See below for the sets appearing in different SpellForce games.

SpellForce series

In the first SpellForce series those equipment sets will always have three items in it. All three items must be worn to unlock the special set effect. Wearing only one or only two items of a set will prove no additional effect.

SpellForce: The Order of Dawns

There are no sets available during this game.

SpellForce: The Breath of Winter

SpellForce: Shadow of the Phoenix

SpellForce 2 series

In the second SpellForce series all sets will have a varying number of items in a set ranging from two to five items. There are multiple effects in each set that are unlocked step-by-step depending on the number of set items worn simultaneously. If wearing three parts of a five-part set, the effects 2 and 3 will be unlocked but 4 and 5 will remain locked. Generally the more sets items, the stronger the benefits get.
