For certain types of gear, there are Sets that can be formed, offering a special bonus if multiple items from that set are equipped at the same time.
Players who have lots of high level gear can use the Belt in order to best utilize all their equipment. The Belt is a place where gear can be set, and if an equipped piece of gear is from the same set, a player can get the set bonus without having to equip the gear.
A player has some high level gear, including a weapon with a powerful burning effect. They then get a new weapon that isn't as powerful, but is part of a set with their armor and helmet. Rather than have to choose between the two, the player can place the second weapon on the belt, allowing them to get the Equipment Set Bonus, while also keep their preferred weapon as their primary.
