I've been looking at getting HGE,Sharpness+1 and Reckless Abandon +2 out of jeweling:
Khezu Helm Z
Rathalos Soul Z vembraces
Rathalos Soul z greaves
Disappointingly, I worked out the max defense this armor can give is 494, having found that some people have stated it to be around 600. Is it really that big a drop from MHF2?
