Armor Combos

#1DeathSnipe777Posted 5/7/2010 12:29:30 PM
So, you guys obviously have armor combos that you use to fit your needs. Combining certain armors with others to get the skills you want and adding certain gems to negate bad skills, etc. So post your best/favorite armor combos here!

And on a second note, what would be a good armor combo that involves Jhen armor if I'm a Longsword/Hammer user?

We need to get armor combos up eventually.
Since low rank armor can have defense equivalent to that of high rank armor, it actually increases our choices.

Anyway, the most basic sets that are needed are:
HGE + Sharpness
Elemental Att Up + Evade

Lancing is for Lances obviously, HGE + Spharpness is for everything that doesn't have dependency on elemental attacks, and Elemental Att Up is for elemental weapons, or gunners.
I got nothing to put here for the time being.

My current set up is 4 piece Jhen with Diablos bracers and a +5 crit unsheathe charge.
This gives Focus, Crit Unsheathe, Recovery +1 and Razor Sharp (requires a slot in weapon)
Excellent for a Great Sword user.

This could probably work for Hammer as well.

Hm, I like that setup you have Neo. I'd just have to beat up Diablos a bit, but that shouldn't be terribly hard. Sucks though because now I have to up my HR a lot more in order to get the Jhen urgent quest, because I failed to get an Earth Dragongem for the chest armor from the event quest.

Did you even look at this before linking it?
It has 3 Lance set ups, a swimming set,
and the other 2 sets require Caedeus+

Right now I'm using..

Hunter's Helm + Slot: Lightfoot Jewel
Hunter's Mail + Slot: Evade Jewel
Hunter's Vambraces+ Slot: Master's Jewel
Rathalos Faulds+ Slot: Evade Jewel
Alloy Greaves+ Slot: Evade Jewel
King Talisman: Expert +6 Evasion+3 Slot: Evade Jewel

These give me: Evade+2 Critical Eye +2 Autotracker
I'm sure there are MUCH better skills/armor out there but this has been working well for me since getting high rank. That and i've upgraded them so I have 285 defense.
