Gears are one type of Archaic Machinery that appears in the Ruins of Alzadaal. Sometimes found as part of a trio, they are reminiscent of naval, or contact, mines, but can be deadly even from afar. They would appear to fall within the Arcana class of monster, and perhaps could be considered a sub-class, however at this time they are separately classified, and it is not known whether they share other traits of those classes.

In the case of triple gears, a gear is removed at 50% and 25% health, while the gear ability "Restoral" will restore a gear.
