Angry Birds Epic Guide | Complete Breakout of All Set Items for Each Bird

In this guide we list and explain the components and benefits of all Set Items in Angry Birds Epic. Learning which sets give which benefits can help you create a lineup of birds that is nearly impossible to beat!

Sets consist of two items: a weapon and a shield. These items are obtained from the Golden Pig Machine (check out guide here), either yours or a friends. Obtaining them is rare, but you are guaranteed to receive a Set Item when your roll the Golden Pig Machine with a full Rainbow Bar. In your inventory you can easily distinguish a Set Item from other items because it will be glowing and have three rainbow filled stars above it. Tap and hold it to see the two items required to complete the set.

Some members have requested that we list out every item obtainable in Epic. Unfortunately, there are far too many regular weapons and off-hand items to list them here. But there are only a few types of passive abilities for non-set items, namely:

Weapons:

  • Critical Strike: 15% chance to deal 50% bonus damage
  • Chain Attack: 30% chance to attack an additional random target with 20% attack power
  • Bedtime: 5% chance to stun target for 1 turn
  • Hocus Pokus: Heal by 10% of dealt damage
  • Dispel: 20% chance to purge blessings on target

Off-Hand Items:

  • Vigor: Take 5% less damage
  • Might: Increase attack power by 5%
  • Vitality: Increase max HP by 15%

Note that the strength of weapons and off-hand items depend on the user’s Level at the time of obtainment. That means that the best Level 2 item will be useless compared to a poor Level 20 item. So try to hold off on finding Set Items until you are high-ranked!

    @mvnla2 Holding off essentially means to not spend any lucky coins on your own Golden Pig Machine spins. It’s still worth going for the daily free spins on your friends’ machines of course, but whatever set items you win will have fixed stats based on your level at that time, and the same set item you win at a higher level later on will have better stats.

    By cosmo2503 (@cosmo2503)

    @mvnla2 getting a piece of legendary set items depends on pure luck and you can get it really early in game, like level 16 or so. Item is guaranteed if rainbow is full. You need 100 lucky coins to fill it completely, it makes 33 free rolls, I guess.

    By TomC (@tomc)

    @mvnla2 The “best” level for set items is always the highest possible level, which is 25 if you’ve played after worldwide release, or 41 if before. No matter what level you obtain set items at, when future releases increase the level cap, then your previous set items will no longer be at maximum possible stats.

    Regarding the ‘level’ of the legendary items, in my opinion it’s really bad form that they do not ‘level up’ as your birds do. Once you spend enough coins (or play long enough with enough friends etc), to be lucky enough to get a Legendary Item, that should be the end of it. Another rant: you can be awarded duplicate items, even while still at the same level. Once you get an item it should be out of the pool of possibilities, for the next few levels (or forever if items leveled up with you).

    By Chris (@chriss)

    @amslimfordy: your screenshot sais 200 and 200 is correct. What should 200% damage mean? 100% damage is already full damage and the pigs would be knocked out. So in my opinion 200% damage is not possible, but 200 damage is possible (as the screenshot sais).

    Rank: Gold Flinger with 7600 points
    By Chris (@chriss)

    By the way, there are many other discrepancies between your screenshots and your descriptions (e.g. Sugar Rush for Bomb: screenshot sais “heals birds by 100 health” and description sais “heals birds for 100% of dealt damage”).

    Rank: Sling God with 29860 points
    By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

    @chriss The text we have written is correct; a few screenshots are incorrect. For example, I have Twin Lightning and I assure you that th bonus damage is 50% and not 50.

    Rank: Gold Flinger with 7600 points
    By Chris (@chriss)

    @amslimfordy: I don’t doubt that most of your texts are correct. I just wonder how stanned pigs can receive “200% damage at the beginning of their turn”. 200% of what? Maybe you can explain me, if you have time.

    Rank: Sling God with 29860 points
    By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

    @Chriss It’s 200% of Matilda’s “Attack Power”.

    So, here’s a list of typos — as in, discrepancies between what’s written in-game and what actually happens.

    • Dragon Breath: Should be 75% bonus damage, not 75 bonus damage.
    • Twin Lightning: Should be 50% bonus damage, not 50 bonus damage.
    • Nightmare: Should be 200% damage, not 200 bonus damage.
    • Scissors: Should be 100% bonus damage, not 100 bonus damage.
    • Sugar Rush: Should be 100% of the dealt damage, not 100 health.
    • *BEEP* ATTACK!: Should be 75% bonus damage, not 75 bonus damage.

    Why 529?

    By Zekava

    What he means is that if the bird takes fatal damage, he shall be healed for a little. Let’s say, using arbitrary numbers, that chuck has 30/500 health when you end your turn. A pig smacks him for 50 dmg. Chuck would normally faint and roll away, but instead, he will be revived to 20/500 health.
    Note that all these numbers are arbitrary, and should not be taken for actual stats.

    By Borgydudeman

    Maybe Chuck will revive after all the birds are knocked out with that “Save Me!”move.

    I noticed this behavior but sometimes it simply does not work. My chuck got hit by two 700+ hits, he’s got 850hp, and the second one outright killed him.

    Not sure how accurate the individual weapon buffs are. Maybe they’re semi-random? I’m on Android, FWIW.

    You’ve got Chronometer listed as a Vitality buff, but my Chronometer has the Might buff. And vice-versa for my Lightning Tome. And all of Bomb’s off-hand items are different for me.

    I’ve tried this in a different thread, but I’m not sure if there, or indeed here, is the right thread. I’ll try here anyway, seems vaguely relevant.

    I just had 18 roles on the rainbow riot and got no set items. I do this every week after collecting a full set of gilden pigs and the last time I got a set item was about 3 weeks ago. So I must have had at least 40 roles since my last set item. The chances are supposed to be tripled during a rainbow riot, so I hate to see what the chances actually are outside of a rainbow riot.

    The only thing I’m gaining is the rainbow bar is gradually filling up, and if I’m lucky I might get a set item once every 3-4 weeks (come to think of it, that might be why I got that last set item).

    Anyway, I’m getting really frustrated with it, and might dump the game altogether. Is their a glitch, or am I just seriously unlucky?

    I have questions. Is the chuck red and matilda nighmare set stun-combo playable?

    – does pigs get the “nightmare” damage even if red or chuck stun them?

    – does the nightmare effect even work?
    (some1 wrote its bugged?)

    – is it still 200% from matildas damage?

    – does the 5th hat from matilda
    (the bard which costs 95 lucky coins)
    stuck with the nightmare set?
    So does she gets 8% + 15% =
    23% stunchance?

    1) The “Nightmare” damage effects any stunned pig, regardless of how or by-whom.

    2) I believe it is working again, yes.

    3) I believe it is 200% of Matilda’s Attack statistic.

    4) Probabilities do not work by addition, but by multiplication of the complement: 1 – (.92)(.85) = 21.8% chance
