Notes & Builds
- This set is too heavy to wear and still have B Agility regardless of your Stamina and Strength investment. Late game you will have to decide between omitting one weapon and dealing with C Agility or using both weapons and using a lighter armor piece to reach a higher Agility rank if you want the full bonus.
- Empty Retribution is a solid switchglaive skill and gets boosted early in this set, so you can easily use this with other sets just for the increase in this skill's damage.
