Q: How do you unlock Knight Squire armor?

A: Complete Fiorayne's follower quest M★2 Flicker in the Night.

Q: How do you unlock Hoplite/Heavy Knight armor?

A: Complete Arena Master Arlow's follower quest M★4 Unknown Invader.

Q: What to augment on armor? (Qurious crafting system)

A: The armor augment system is too difficult to aim for specific skills for, so I won't include them in the builds here. For general advice, try upgrading level 2 or 3 slots to level 4 slots, upgrading level 1 slots to level 2 slots, or getting points of skills that can free up decoration slots.

Q: Some of these decorations aren't available until Anomaly Research level 100+ (i.e level 4 element attack)! What can I make in the meantime?

A: Please check the previous versions of those builds under Previous Revisions to see what they used before those decorations were added.

Defense Master (Level 3)

Prevents sharpness loss on guarding; restore sharpness by 1 instead.

Kushala Daora Soul (Level 3)

Increase affinity by 5% for 3 seconds when landing a hit. Upgrades to 15% after landing 5 hits without expiring.

Elembane (Level 3)

Increase damage by 15% when exploiting an enemy's elemental weakness. Affects hitzones with elemental value greater than 25, and works on phial damage. Only use for power element phial charge blades. Note that for some monsters, this decoration is not very impactful as they may only have elemental hitzone value over 25 on a small part of their body, meaning most SAED phials will not benefit.

Narwa Soul (Level 2)

Increase affinity by 5% for each piece of Ibushi armor equipped (10% for the Narwa/Ibushi mixed set).

Valstrax Soul (Level 2)

Increase base Dragon element value by 20% when affected by dragonblight (from Valstrax armor).

Brutal Strike (Level 2)

When affinity is negative, gives a 25% chance to negatively crit for +50% damage instead of -25%. Only use if using a weapon with high negative affinity (Final boss or Diablos) and no affinity skills.

Anti-Aquatic/Anti-Aerial/Anti-Dragon/Fanged Exploit (Level 2)

Boosts damage vs a specific monster type by 5%, including phial damage.

Defense Edge (Level 1)

Prevents sharpness loss on guarding.

Notes

A very fun set for farming afflicted monsters (and Malzeno). Berserk on the Blue Switch Scroll makes you take no damage from monster attacks, but causes your health to drain, speeding up after taking damage from monsters. Air Dash can be spammed in Spinning Axe mode to deal lots of damage, super-armoring through monster attacks that give you Bloodblight, which lets you sustain through the health loss from Berserk.

Improvements

Add Blood Rite (Bloodening jewel) as needed. Personally, I like Evade Extender too.

Notes

See Best Endgame Charge Blades section for weapon recommendations. Impact Phial is recommended over Element because the spinning axe playstyle greatly benefits from KOs. If using a Fire, Ice, or Water weapon, use Flamescale/Ironshell (level 1) decos instead of Defiance.

Improvements

Add Guard Up or Blood Rite as needed. With a good talisman, add points of Resentment, Attack, Critical Eye, etc.

Notes

Draquila Reaver+ (Dragon tree) is usable for this build (and craftable much earlier) but I think Valstrax wins by a bit if using an anti-type rampage deco.

This set uses both of the HP-draining skills Dereliction and Bloodlust (with Coalescence) to maximize elemental damage. If using a Fire, Ice, or Water weapon, use Flamescale/Ironshell (level 1) decos instead of Defiance.

With a good talisman, add points of Agitator, Offensive Guard, Attack Boost, Critical Eye, Razor Sharp, etc.
