      For anyone that's trying to make a "fire" build with this set, keep in mind that Canon is the only ranged weapon that gets "fire damage +X%" on it. None of the other ranged weapons get any elemental damage whatsoever, and canon only gets fire. Secondly, "fire damage +X%" is the only elemental damage effect you can get on a soul core that's gotten through RNG. You can get it as part of the automatic special effect of Umi Bozo for example, but you can't get it as one of the RNG Special Effects. Lastly, Nine-tails is your guardian spirit of choice most likely, as well as getting more Fire damage and burn accumulation on Accessories and your weapon. Tldr - Get Fire damage on your canon, Yokai Abilities, Accessories, and ideally from Nine-Tails if you are going for a Fire build.
