If you're looking for more generic, and overall potent in about every quest kind of armours than Full Vangis or Helios/Mix will most likely be the "best" sets.

There are many customizations though to fit a weapon's playstyle, but those 2 sets overall will do well with any weapon.

Both sets have Sharp+1

Vangis gives an extra decent boost in attack with its natural AUM, and 3 slots.

Helios/Mix allows 5 slots (6 actually, but 1 slot is needed for a handicraft jewel, although you can opt to use a weapon's slot or talisman) with High Grade Earplugs.


Sorry, I'm too lazy to post the combination for the Helios/Mix

Vangis set usually you'd use the 3 slots on the greaves for an Onslaught jewel to get Attack Up (L), and a good talisman would likely be a Perception +10 with a slot (2 isn't necessary) for a Hungerless jewel to take care of the Raise Hunger. The Perception points give you Capture Guru, which synergizes well with Autotracker. You could also use an Evade +7 OO talisman and a Lightfoot jewel for Evade +1, although you'd still have Raise Hunger unless you forfeit the Attack Up (L).

Helios set requires no gemming. Just use low rank vambraces and coil and you have Sharpness +1 and HG Earplpugs with no negative bonuses. I believe it also leaves you with enough slots for any C skill.

You'd only use an onslaught gem in full vangis if you have a godcharm of some sort. Typically it's a much better idea to use, say eva+6 alongside a lightfoot and evade jewel in the vangis greaves to get AuM and evade +1. It's certainly a much much better combination than settling for AuL and a garbage C skill. It's also worth noting that you can swap out the vangis belt for helios+, which gets rid of raise hunger (but also demotes autotracker to detect). And even with the most ghetto evade charm, you can still have a pretty good vangis+evade mix on your hands.

And the helios/vangis mix (H+/H+/H+/H/V head/chest/hands/waist/legs) is just outright better than H+/H+/H/H/H+. Same skills but more sockets. And again, settling for a C skill is a waste when you can have something like AuL as your third skill.


The oft-maligned regular earplug helios mixes are also important. A very simple one is Helios+ Mail with torso up x2 (both overforged and HR helios greaves also work) which gives sharpness +1 and earplugs for only 3 equipment slots and one jewel slot. One with less customisation (but very strong) vangis gauntlets and helios+ everything else. Sharpness+1, earplugs, 6 slots and half of AuS is a pretty good deal. Both of these are a great foundation for a GS or hammer set when HGE isn't required.

If you manage to find the fabled attack+6 OO charm, then I've got a fantastic little set using Lagi+ and Vangis.

EDIT: Here it is.

Vangis Helm
Lagiacrus+ Chest (With an Element+ jewel)
Vangis Vambraces
Vangis Coil
Vangis Greaves (With an Architect Jewel)
Attack+6 charm with 2 slots (With two Handicraft jewels).

That gives Attack up Medium, Element Attack up and Sharpness+1, with no downsides. If you have a weapon slot, you can get detect on there too.
