    "You can only order one piece of gear each day, and Spyke will have it available for pick up the next day (based on your local time)."

    Actually, you can have up to three pieces of gear ordered at a time. Spyke will only be able to fill one order a day though. If you try to order a fourth piece, he'll ask you to cancel one of your current orders.

    So does this mean that it's impossible to buy a 3 star item from the booyah base?

    Follow up question: In order to get a 3 star item I'm assuming you must get spyke to upgrade a 2 star one?

    No, I believe its possible to buy a 3-Star Item from Booyah Base, I'm pretty sure the shopkeepers generally stock the higher Star gear for you daily based on your current level.
    And how is everyone else able to get those 3-Star items such as the Gas Mask anyway without orders extremely early within the games lifespan? Booyah Base, that's how. They can't order it unless someone else has the item.

    And for your follow-up question, that is ONE of the three ways you can get a 3-Star Item, including ordering one from Spyke, and as previously stated, buying it from Booyah Base if it's in stock.

    As said it is possible, but you have to be at a high level, I believe it's higher than Level 14. Also when Spyke upgrades gear it gains a slot, but the number of stars remains the same, so you can see while ordering something if it originally had just 1 or 2 slots by the number of stars (Because Spyke won't always bring back gear with those slots unlocked, actually I'm not even sure if he brings extra slots at all, he does get some abilities already unlocked sometimes)

    Also I'll update with some info posted here and make myself more clear about the 3-star gear line soon.

    Thanks for the replies guys. I just had my first level 3 item appear in the shop, so it must have just been my low level that was preventing me beforehand.

    ...Too bad I have no money though :p

    How Fashion Brands Affect Sub Abilities.

    The brands affect the chances of getting certain secondary abilities when you level your gear up. Most brand have one common ability (which is an ability that is five times more likely to appear), and an uncommon ability (which is an ability that has only half the chance to appear).

    Amiibo, Cuttlegear, and KOG brands don't affect secondary abilities in any way.

    Firefin - 5x chance for Ink Saver (Sub), 1/2 chance for Ink Recovery Sub
    Forge - 5x chance for Special Duration Up, 1/2 chance for Ink Saver (Sub)
    Inkline - 5x Defense Up, 1/2 Damage Up
    Krak-On - 5x Swim Speed Up, 1/2 Defense Up
    Rockenberg - 5x Run Speed Up, 1/2 Swim Speed Up
    Skalop - 5x Quick Respawn, 1/2 Special Saver
    Splash Mob - 5x Ink Saver (Main), 1/2 Run Speed Up
    Squidforce - 5x Damage Up, 1/2 Ink Saver Main
    Takoroka - 5x Special Charge Up, 1/2 Special Duration Up
    Tentatek - 5x Ink Recovery Up, 1/2 Quick Super Jump
    Zekko - 5x Special Saver, 1/2 Special Charge Up
    Zink - 5x Quick Super Jump, 1/2 Quick Respawn

    All info from the strategy guide.

    Thanks everyone that pointed out the brand influence on sub-abilities, I'll be sure to add it on the next version, for now I updated many of the icons and included one item that was missing (Tentacles Helmet)

    Nice, you pretty much got all the icons. Great work.

    I have a question, is the bolded confirmed?
    I thought that did happen before, but some people on GAF said otherwise. I know it says right there it isn't guaranteed, but I would like to know if it is confirmed.

    I'm assuming it is based on the fact that you have a price listed for 2-star gear with 3 sub abilities unlocked.

    My mistake, I already edited it, thanks for pointing it out.

    Also as general guide news: I'm working on the amiibo icons and should should have a near final version for the current gear soon! If anyone has suggestions for more topics I would gladly incorporate more info on the guide, currently I don't think I'll include set suggestions as I feel they get very specific depending on which weapon you use and would be better added as sections for weapons or strategy guides.

    With the prices listed, why buying/finding 3 stars gears? Why not just taking 1 star gear and adding slots for cheaper? I don't understand this part.

    I guess you're talking about gear obtained by Spyke. If you manage to get an item that already has some sub abilities that you want, it may be a good advantage.

    For example: 2-stars, 3 abilities: 100,000 coins

    If those three abilities are exactly those you want, then it's a great deal! You'd be paying less for buying the item and adding the third slot, around 35,000, but then you would have to roll those three abilities, and odds are you won't be getting exactly what you want. Each reroll costs 30,000. You do the math.
