Notes & Builds
- This is one of the higher overall damage sets in the game. The Ninjutsu power damage bonus is global and applies to every attack you do, be it Ninjutsu items, Melee, Ranged weapon attacks, Yokai Abilities or even Onmyo Magic. The downside is this set has one of the lowest toughness ratings in the entire game, so blocking many attacks are more risky than for even other light armor sets, and until endgame the sword doesn't scale with dexterity, the stat you want to invest the most in.
- This set gains a lot from several changes in endgame: I higher cap for Skill and Dexterity and thus a higher possible Ninjutsu Power rating, Ninjutsu Power being a star effect roll for even more, Transform Bonus allowing you to use the sword with this set to it's fullest potential, and several really strong Ethereal Grace options that play well whether you us this for melee or Ninjutsu damage. Special note goes to Marici's Grace and Omoikane's Grace for the ninjutsu.
