    One thing that I have been neglecting is gear - got me interested when farming fate gear - also the one gem summon, which btw has given me just one 4* so far - did both 300 gem summons today and both got 4* gear... so much for the 1gem.

    Anyway - obviously 4* gear is the jackpot. What about 3* and 2* - is it worth upgrading at all?

    generally the 2* and 3* i upgrade are the accessories like sapphire earrings and heart choker
    the armor and weapons - best check the db for min/max values to see if its worth the gold to disassemble and evolve: http://www.alchemistcodedb.com/gears

    Got Excalibur for Saber. Couldn't beat the EX mission to get more shards to evolve to level 4 (for her master ability). Anyone know how to buy / find / get bronze gear shards?

    You can disassemble dupes of 2* and 3* gear and together with shards from the projection gear mission and elsewhere you can eventually get them to 5*. The 2* gear is status-effect specific and is useful to have, even if it's not outstanding.
    The 2* armors and accessories give resistance against status effects and all the 2* weapons gain the chance to inflict status effects.

    As a rule of thumb, each of the 2* gear except the weapons are worth leveling to 30 once. Though it costs a lot of ore to get a gear to lvl30, so keep that in mind.
    The 2* weapons, I personally only like the poison staff and the paralyzing sword. Paralyzing is a good CC effect for tanks and poison becomes just stronger and stronger as the game progresses with increasingly high HP units.

    3* gears are a bit tricky. They are generally trash since they are far worse than what's available and unlike the 2* you can't farm them easily. If by some off-chance you get lots of dupes of a certain weapon that you do not have a better +4* version of, then go for it.
    There will be silver gear projection farm stages later with 3* and 4* shards in it, so you might hold onto some 3* weapons until that time comes.

    Similar to elemental frags, there will be EX missions that hand out universal bronze/silver/gold shards as well as event-specific boards that, if you clear them, sometimes have those shards among them.
    Other than that they are an incredibly limited resource.
