Best armor set

you know the drill. More set options will open on Smith as you play through quests and killing monsters. Spent with our abundant time Snowflake, We unlocked more than 100 armor sets. This number is hard to say the least. You might have to play Snowflake 1,000 hours for enough monster parts to craft each piece of armor. Luckily, the purpose is not to craft every piece of armor – just what you need.

Here are the four best armor sets Snowflake.

Viper Kadachi +

Viper-kadachi- +
  • Total Security: Is 660
  • Total Fire Protection: 5
  • Total Water Conservation: 15
  • Total Thunder Defense: -15
  • Total Ice Defense: -10
  • Total Dragon Defense: 5

Each piece of Viper Toby-Kadachi armor has 132 defenses, along with decent water resistance and light dragon and fire resistance. The great feature of the Viper Kadachi + Armor is that it provides the averaged extender skills, which greatly increases the distance of your roll. Along with this, you’ll also get the Ewed Window skill, which increases invisibility when dodging. The Constitution reduces stamina and the Quick Sheath lets you remove weapons and stop a little faster. It also increases the proficiency of paralysis and poison attacks.

Velkhana +

Velkhana - +
  • Total Security: 770 is
  • Total Fire Protection: -15
  • Total Water Conservation: 10
  • Total Thunder Defense: -5
  • Total Ice Defense: 20
  • Total Dragon Defense: -5

The Velkhana set is, unnaturally, one of the best armor sets Snowflake. It also happens to look the best. Velakhana armor pieces have 154 defenses and provide great resistance to ice and water attacks. The skills provided by the Velkhana armor, especially the set bonuses, make it an incredibly great option. Of course, you will have to wait a long time to unlock it, but it is worth the wait.

With the full set, you’ll deal more elemental damage – regardless of element – when landing critical hits. When your weapon is shaken, the attack power increases, then decreases as soon as you use it. On top of the set bonus, you’ll get Divine Blessing (chance to reduce damage), Defense Boost, Flinch Free (reduces knockback and tripping), Critical Draw (100 percent critical hit chance when pulling weapon), Quick Sheath, and Co-term (increases the attacks after removing the position effect).

Phulgur Anjanath +

  • Total Security: 730
  • Total Fire Protection: -5
  • Total Water Conservation: -5
  • Total Thunder Defense: 10
  • Total Ice Defense: -15
  • Total Dragon Defense: 0

Phulgur Anjnath a strong tee. Rex, so it’s no surprise that his armor set is one of the starists Snowflake. A full set will enhance your stamina cap, which is especially helpful in the Frigged Horfrost Reach. Elemental thunderbolt damage increases. If you use Thunder-based weapons, this set will help you against Nargakuga, Tigrex, Viper Toby-Kadachi, and other monsters that are vulnerable to thunder. The best skill weakness it provides is exploitation. When hitting weak points, you’ll have a 30 percent increased affinity, which increases to 50 percent when attacking injured areas. This armor also has the advantage of increasing it by 50 percent – an extremely useful skill when using consumables such as armor skins, element seeds, and mite seeds.

As a bonus, you’ll get a Defense Boost, Stun Resistance, Resistance to Knockback, and a better improvement when suffering from the effects of the situation.

Nargaku +

  • Total Security: 700
  • Total Fire Protection: -10
  • Total Water Conservation: 10
  • Total Thunder Defense: -15
  • Total Ice Defense: 0
  • Total Dragon Defense: 0

The Nargakuga set is very good against water and has some really excellent skills. There will be a complete set, you will get a skilled skill Nargakusa essence, which keeps your weapon very sharp. For light weapon users, stamina enhancement skills are a big plus, as it greatly increases stamina recovery. Evade window skills were mentioned earlier, but Nargakuga is unmatched at level five. You should not worry about taking damage while dodging.

Focus on resistors

While we heartily recommend the four sets listed above, when you are spending a rough amount of time with a monster, you may want to focus on resistances. Is Glavenus harming you with fire and explosion? Set Uragaan to increase your fire resistance. Trouble against Barioth? Set back and set the Banbaro material to be more resistant to snow.

Look for bone stacks and quarry ore

Bones and ore are required to craft non-monster-based armor sets and lots of weapons. Look for a bone pile, find it. Walk with some ore? Take out your pickaxe and get to work. While monster sets provide more skill, you can still make a great set with just ore and bones. The advantage here is that you don’t have to hunt monsters repeatedly to complete an armor set.

Armor areas

Armor Spheres let you upgrade the overall defense of each armor piece. Complete rewards and quests to earn areas of armor. The Master Rank brings heavy armor areas into the fold. Keep in mind that you will not have a surplus of these until you complete all the time. With this in mind, we do not recommend upgrading pieces of armor that you do not want to wear for more than a few quashes. You want to save them to fully upgrade the sets you use most often

Armor pieces come with innate skills, but don’t forget to fit the slot with jewelry. Each piece of armor and weapon can hold up to three jewels of three different sizes. The bigger the jewel, the more powerful the skill. Decorating is a great way to balance weaknesses. If you choose armor that is especially weak against an element, you can also scale by adding a jewel.

You will earn jewels with every quest you complete Snowflake, But you can also melt new ones in the Elder Mailer. Some “+” mains like Gili Mantle can also be fitted with jewelry, so don’t forget to access them from the Special Tools menu.

While we do not recommend choosing gear based on the number of slots (or slot size), it is foolish to venture into Hoarfrost access without adding skill to your gear with decor.

When it comes to master rank weapons, it is difficult to determine what is best. In each of 14 weapons world Return in Snowflake With master rank versions. While their upgrade paths are associated with low / high rank, you do not need to fully upgrade a weapon to unlock master rank versions. Instead, you can create an initial master rank version of the weapon on your respective tree if you have enough zeni and the right parts.

since Snowflake There is an extension, you probably already have a favorite weapon or two world. Use what you’re most comfortable with Snowflake.

From there, you have to decide which weapon tree to follow. Your primary concern should be overall attack damage. Keep in mind that these vary largely between weapons. The 400’s attack with dual blades is excellent, but much less with a great sword (good is over 1,000).

But after the damage of the attack, you want to see three other main characteristics: intensity, intimacy, and element.


The sharpness meter is misleading, as it has six different colors, starting with white (fastest) and ending in red (dull). After sharpening a weapon, you’ll have it the fastest, but as you use it, well, it is inherently less effective. When deciding whether to place the same value between two arms of the same class, pay attention to sharpness. If you see a lot of white, blue, and green colors, your weapon will be effective for a longer period of time between whey uses. If a larger size portion of the meter is taken by red, orange and yellow (especially red), the blade will lose its effective sharpness at a faster rate.


Do not be too worried about this statue. One ton weapons have zero percent affinity, even master rank weapons. But if you are comparing similar weapons and one has 20 percent affinity while the other has zilch, just remember that affinity is related to critical hits. A 20 percent affinity is important. This means that one out of every five swings will, on average, cause more damage. Critical hits are also more likely to stagger monsters. If you do not have any affinity, you can increase it through armor skills and decorations.


This is an important one. Elemental damage can largely change during a fight. Every monster is severely vulnerable to at least one element, and is somewhat vulnerable. Almost every weapon has elemental damage: fire, water, ice, thunder, dragon, paralysis, poison, explosion, sleep, and so on.

As you progress Snowflake, You will want to start making weapons that capitalize on weaknesses. You can check Hunter’s notes to see weaknesses for the monsters you’ve researched.

Bouguns are the exception, because they have a deviation statue rather than an element, which is the rate of how many bullets are fired from the crosshairs when in flight.
