I have a few questions considering weapon selection involving mostly awaken. Unlike in Tri, in 3 ultimate, the lances(and probably other weapons), aren't as clear cut for a best weapon for each element. While I've done my own number work and selections for most of the elements, I was wondering if anyone could give me some direction involving awaken.
In general, is it better to have an armor set with the awaken armor skill and a weapon requiring it that is better, or a worse with a more flexible armor set that doesn't require awaken?
The lances in questions are:
-Shiera Vitalica: 529/470ice/1/10% vs Aidion Crown(awaken): 553/540ice/3/0%
-Exia Lordlance 506/520water/1/0% vs Tremblor Granboros(awaken): 621/490water/2/-5%[+31d]
My gut says that both awakened weapons are probably bring a bigger boost in strength than another skills could provide, but I'm not sure especially considering things such as the 10% affinity of the Shiera Vitalica.Since I'm not yet G-rank(soon) I haven't started planning any custom sets quite yet, so please factor in whether or not I could even get other good skills with an awaken set into the input.
