So I am currently farming the offline village Lagiacrus, and I am wondering if it would be better to just stick with the Barroth armor I have equipped now or is getting Lagi's set a good idea?

If it is just like Tri's lagia armor (i haven't played much yet) then it is worth getting, just for the slots and skills. resistance is bad, but when will you even get hit by elemental attacks when you are a blademaster?

It is not like offlines lagi armor, and you'd probably be better off saving the plate for weapons instead of low rank armor.

As I was a fan of the lagi armor in Tri I decided to make a low rank lagi set to get me through MH3U for a bit. It was ok, but I replaced it with HR Barroth armor when I got the chance. Will prob make a HR lagi set later for underwater battles but can't really recommend the LR set that much.


Also, I've been assuming that MH3U is the same as Tri, in that if you overforge armor the skills remain the same? Given the differences in skills between LR, HR and G rank armor it really seems there's no point to overforging sets in MH3? Anyone checked this?

i never played tri so im not sure what you mean by over forging, but i was using LR barroth armor, and upgrading to HR barroth was worth it for adding higher attack and if im not mistaken more deco slots and WAY higher Defense

It used to be that if you kept upgrading LR armor, even using HR materials, you'd keep the original skills and slots, though the def values were the same. I did that for my lagi armor as I prefered the LR skill set to the HR skill set (LR had element up, the HR had awaken).

Guess I'll have to try upgrading my MH3U lagi set and see what happens.

Honestly, the plate is rather unimportant- Making Lagi weapons tends to consume multiple horns in addition to plates and those are particularly eye-rolling to farm early on. HR Lagi drops plates fairly often, but you'll be digging for Sapphires and Horn+s.
