Best armor for DS user in the game?

#1Darkinsanity1Posted 7/19/2014 10:21:00 PM
I've seen people say Selene/Helios, though I"m not sure what those are or where they come from. But I'm pretty much at the end of High rank village quests and wondering where to go once I'm totally finished there.

I'm really liking Azure Rathalos armor. Stuff dies so fast. I'm going to miss that Critical Eye+3 since form what I've seen that Selene/Helios armor set combo doesn't have it and instead has Sharpness +1 and as awesome as this sounds, is it really better than Criticial Eye 3?

Just looking for information as to where to go from here. Thanks.

This is what I'm using. It requires a specific Charm and a lot of rare materials, though.

Narga Cap Z (Gunner)
Nether
Nether
Nether
Any Torso Up legs (I recommend Arzuros for looks)
Evasion+2 OOO

Honed Blade (Sharpness+1 & Atk Up (L))
Evasion+1
Stam Recov Up
Any +10 Skill

Critical Eye -1 (-5 affinity is only a 1.25% damage reduction over time, don't worry about it.)

I have Razor Sharp for my fourth skill, other good options would be Element Up or Marathon Runner.

(Narga Z is green Nargacuga (Unlocked at HR7) and Nether is Abyssal Lagiacrus (Unlocked at HR70)

Also, Helios/Selene is Ceadeus Armor. Full Helios Z with Helios X waist gives Sharpness+1 and HG Earplugs with 7 slots.

Hmm I guess it will be awhile before I worry about that, since I'm going to go back and finish all the village random stuff I skipped in order to get upgrades faster, and then I'm going to have to go to Tanzia and work my way up.

Do these armor set ups at least look cool? Lol I really like the Azure Rathalos look. I'll be sad to see it go once I upgrade, specially if the better armors don't look as good.

I personally think a lot of the high end g rank sets look a lot better than Rath Soul, especially things like Miralis, Hyuga/Yamato Prime, and Nether.

Also Rath Soul Z is not as good looking as Rath Soul (HR version). :/

And just for reference, gaining purple sharpness via sharpness +1 is a 12% increase in raw damage and 10% increase in elemental damage over white sharpness, while 30% affinity is around a 7.5% increase to raw damage only.

Do people use those armors you mentioned? All I've really heard about are the Helios/Selene combinations, for dual swords anyways.

So, my spending some months away, defending my paper and also playing Mario Kart is about enough for people to forget Helios ZWZZZ (aka Poncho Anubis)?

Take a look at this thread:

Or just make the above armor whereas X means Wroggi X chest.

It is better AND easier to make than the quoted suggestion.
