fairly new player... good gunlance armor

#1twilitlink33Posted 1/24/2014 12:56:39 AM
So I am HR6. I currently have full Dios armor and a Dios gulance. I am wondering what low G-rank armor/weapons I should get? I was thinking Agnaktor U or Z, but I am unsure on if the Glacial Agnaktor from High rank is what I need, or if Agnaktor Z is in HR7 or above.

Is that a good armor choice? I just need anything to make me more useful in low G-rank.

Uragaan Z is what you want to make, but Agnaktor Z is not a bad choice. Agnaktor Z is really best for lances though.

Uragaan Z has better skills for gunlances (guard, mind's eye, artillery). However, you do need to be HR7, or play with someone that HR to be able to make it. If that's not an option, make Barroth X until then

EDIT:

Uragaan Z is steel Uragaan btw.

I use full Agnak Z with a +9 artillery charm so i get:

Guard +2
Guard Up
Artillery Expert
Mind's Eye

Your set will depend on how you wish to play as well as the gunlance type you have. I have a Wide (Spread) lv 5 gun so i do a lot of shelling. Alternatively if you have a gunlance which relies more on it's combo's and want somewhat of a decent set in HR then you could actually make Rath Soul set and gem in artillery expert. That should do you fine. You could also use mega dash juice instead of guard to take less stamina chunks while blocking but you don't have too.

I'm experimenting with a mix-up set for the GL. I do agree with Mr Cats tho..the Aggy Z armor is optimal for either lance.

This is what I built to goof with and see..

Helios Helm X
Agnaktor Mail Z
Helios Vambraces X
Duramboros Faulds X
Artiian Greaves X

Handicraft+4 O--

2X Ironwall jewel 2
8X Artillery jewel 2
1X Ironwall jewel 1

Artillery Expert
Awaken
Sharpness+1
Guard+1

425-582 Def -12 fire, 11 wat, 6 ice, -8 thunder, -11 dragon

I have been switching between this, the full agnak z set and artian set with the Lagombi X helm, and Nibelsnarf Faulds X with a handi +4 one slot charm and evade jewels to get Evasion+2, Awaken, Sharpness+1 and the standard guard boost for normal lances if interested in something home brewed.

Just a thought..

It took me a second. Hey MAN! Your vids helped me learn the GL and LN ALOT from being strictly GS and ranged user.!!

Thanks for your time and dedication to making those videos!!!!

I like the Hollow Jhen armor for the gunlance.

Sharpness +1
Razor Sharp
Health+50
Guard+1
Artilary Novice

Razor sharp and Sharpness +1 is amazing because you can keep your purple sharpness for so long even with shelling.

Ok thanks guys. In the mean time, while trying to get to HR7 and get the armor, what is good to use? Should I continue using all dips until then or should I switch over to be more effective? I wanted to try SnS.

Also, I don't know much about slotting or talismans. Is there anything in particular I should use for GL or SnS?

If you're still using the GL, Barroth X will do for now. For the SnS, the cookie cutter Helios/Selene ZZZXZ is best, with Volvidon X right after that.
