I'm fiddling around with a set for my second character for the Long sword. If you aren't aware my second character is going to have melee sets that are not are fairly unique for the weapon so here are the skills for the weapon. Critical eye +3,elemental attack up and speed sharpening. If I can get a different tali I want to add Item use up to that skill set. Thoughts?
Is it feasible to swap Speed Sharpening with Razor Sharp? I'd figure the latter gives you a better chance to stay on the offensive, which seems to be what you're going for.
It's feasable to do that but then all I would really have to do with the set is just wear low rank Lagi and gem in Critical eye +3 I am kinda going for looks and speed sharpening is there is because it works with armor pieces that I am using for the set. The expert skill isn't on many armor pieces. Gobul + Both Alloys and both Rathlos. Gobul + doesn't have many slots to work with and it doesn't have many complimenting skills for the long sword. Rathlos + is okay but when the long sword has its spirit gauge full it doesn't really needs minds eye. So for now this is the set that I am thinking of right now.
Rathlos Cap +. You can use the helm but I like the look of the cap better on my character. Plus it has one extra expert point then the helm.
Lagi + Mail put a Elemental +4 gem here.
The rest is Alloy +. I put the speed sharpening gems here. 3 of them. I have
a 7 expert tali in there but if you go with the cap you can go with a 6 expert.
I'm also going to grab all the long swords that have the higher affinity this time around with my character to try make the most of this.
I was thinking earlier of having Critical Draw as the focus of the set earlier to day but I wasn't sure how I could do that with my current talis.Then again it may have been early and I wasn't thinking clearly.
Just came up with another Long sword set but it has these skills. Critical draw, Critical eye +3 and speed Sharpening.
