Invader Special Top 15

When invading, you take 5 categories: "Heroes", "Soldiers", "Weapons", "Equipment", and "Magic". Helmets, off-hands, armor, gloves, and amulets all get placed into the category "Equipment", which is limited to normally 501 (or max army #) pieces. This means that there is actually no point in trying to get 501 helmets + 501 armor + etc. If you can make 501 Helms of Dragon Power, that's all you'd take on an invasion under "Equipment", minus some other limit one's.

Of course, everything on this list is farmable, also assuming no FP used to farm for equipment.

Currently, Skaar, Bahamut, then Ragnarok will give you top equipment although Bahamut seems to be a tougher monster than Ragnarok. Skaar is the best for farming better equipment (skaar avg takes less time to kill) but Ragnarok will drop more top equipment than Skaar and more easily. (Personal Opinion, may vary for different players)
