Hmms, just in the process of working out a Critical Element set for when I want to mix things up a little bit, and this is what I’ve roughly worked out so far.
Rath Soul Helm Beta: +1 Crit Boost w/ 2 Lv. 1 slots
Rathalos Plate Beta: +2 Weakness Exploit w/ 1 Lv. 1 slot
(Critical Element active)
Teostra Vambraces Beta: +1 Weakness Exploit w/ 1 Lv. 3 slot
Odogaron Coil Beta: +2 Critical Eye w/ 1 Lv. 2 slot
Diablos Nero Greaves Beta: Normal Shots w/ 1 Lv. 2 slot
Charm will either remain as Fitness Charm III, so that I’m not chewing through my stamina too quickly, or be changed to a Master’s Charm for a nice little extra affinity boost.
The 3 level 1 slots will be used for various utility skills depending on the quest.
The 1 level 3 slot will likely be used for Spread/Power Shot
The 2 level 2 slots will be reserved for Critical Boost gems (whenever I happen to get them)
