Best gems combination for Rathalos Soul Z blade set?

The two heavenly scales are a pain in the ass, but I completed it. Which of the armor's skills should I farther improve?

I also use Lost Black Katana, which I think is good with Reckless Abandon.

It really depends. If that's the set you want to wear for a while then I'll need a minute to play around with the numbers.

If someone suggests something you like then by all means take them up on it, but I'll be back with an answer shortly.

You can gem in Sharp Sword, which I suggest you do.

Aside from that, you can either max out your RA as far as you can or get HGE. That's all on you though.

Also, IMO FBK > SotM. Good choice. Also, I made the gunner's helmet so I don't have constitution but I have more points towards RA/Earplugs and an extra slot to my advantage.

Awesome, one strength jewels is all it takes to remove -10 from health.

I considered getting SotM for the higher affinity and all, why do you suggest FBK?

how many + does it need in order to activate HGE? Is it possible to have achieve higher RA with the space left?

I haven't looked into exact gemming, but I prefer LBK because it:

A. Has more slots.
B. Affinity is only so useful past 40% IMO.

You're still looking at a very high critical rate and they have the exact same attack power. Again, it's kind of a wacky pain for me to work with a different helmet (I've come to be bleh with ROTR since my net is so bad) but you can work with it either way. The 3 slots on the LS helps quite a bit towards gemming in different skills and gives lots of options towards Earplugs/RA since they both have those nice 3 slots gems.

Also, the LBK has 15 more hits in purple sharpness. Forgot to mention that part.

FBK attack power is increased to around 1300 with RA+3, awesome.

Which gem activate HGE?
