Where to Farm
You can get pieces from Overland Sets by defeating specific types of enemies. When in the appropriate zone, defeat the right Boss to receive the piece you are after. This is where you can find various pieces for Overland Armor Sets.
Delve Bosses have a chance to drop a Waist or Feet piece from Sets in the area.
Public Dungeon Bosses have a chance to drop a Shoulders, Hand or Weapon piece from Sets in the area.
Overland Bosses will always drop a Head, Chest, Legs or Weapon piece from Sets in the area.
Dolmen and Other World Events Chests will always drop a Ring or Necklace piece from Sets in the area.
Treasure Chests & Psijic Portals have a chance to drop any piece from Sets in the area. These are valuable since chests are the only way to get Jewelry for some Overland Sets.

Improving & Selling
You can sell the items in the quality you get them but you can earn more gold if you improve them. If you have the required mats already or can afford to improve them you can increase your profit.
However the better the quality and higher the price of an item, the longer it might make to sell.
