hey guys, im an avid DS user and im at HR8 soon. im not into the whole idea of farming up the Helios Z Set as i think its pretty much a template armor that everyone wears.

perhaps we can share our armor combos and the skills that we gem in here as well?

im currently on Full Rath Soul Z set.

HGE
Critical+3
Fencing
Bombardier
Divine Protection

I just use narga set, evade +2 evade dist, sense and fast sharpener.

I think fast sharpener is a good skill for dual sword since they wear easily. and with evade distance i can just dash to monsters without sheathing.

The only thing you need earplugs for are rathalos and subs. I don't think anything else that roars capitalizes on it, I think of earplugs and HGE as just free hit skills.

not all monsters need high grade earplugs and against those that don't it's somewhat of a waste since earplugs is one of the higher investment skills

Uragaan can get you too during a roar, and I think I. Lagi can get you with a close range electric attack. That's all I can think of off the top of my head though, I've had HGE since rath soul > Helios and am not quite ready to leave it yet.

Challenger 2 is IMHO the best Atk buff skill, but it's just difficult to incorporate with sharpness+1 and evade
