The easiest way I can think of putting it would be..

For beginners explanation - Every complete armor set (And custom made ones) will give you so many points towards an effect that you can use.
Like with speed sharpening you can sharpen a weapon with one swipe instead of four. (Faster)

If the armor does not give you the effect by not giving enough points towards it, you can make gems that will give you the points if there are SLOTS on it to be attached.
(Some weapons have slots also).

That's BASICALLY it, and now to charms.
Charms have their own individual slot and can be almost OP. (And some can have slots also!)
Simply you gather them randomly from gathering and other quests. (Rewards etc).
They have the ability to give you a higher amount of points towards an effect for your armor rather than a gem.

Be warned that even though both Gems and Charms put points towards certain effects, they can detract points for other effects. Choose wisely and plan it out! (-20%Health = BAAAAAD)

The trick in mind for armor can be.. " Put aside the idea of defense for now, focus on getting armors with effects that are useful to my weapon choice or goal for certain quests!"
(Real hunters never get hit!)


Sorry this is VERY long winded and there will be many who may contend with certain details but that's basically what it's all about. It is very important, but the learning curve is gentle and you'll be glad you got used to it.


Hope it helps you, and GOOD HUNT!! *Raises flagon Hammer


P.S. An example for effects beginner blade masters may want..
Speed Sharpening, Sharpness +1, Health +20/50, Sheathe.

Any health related item is completely useless since the food boosts it anyways. Sheathe is also useless because it only adds maybe 1-2 seconds extra time. Speed sharpening is definitely a must at the earlier stages.

sheathe is good for GS tbh.

Probably lance too, lance takes a while to sheathe.

.... One of the main things is to learn the new skills in 3U and at what level they unlock. There are a LOT OR NEW SKILLS... some actually combine multiple skills so having it makes having some others pointm=less. Also some skills that were 15 in tri are now only 10 to fully unlock...

You really have to know what it is you are looking for if you are trying to get certain things, otherwise just play around with what you get. Chakra armor in 3U is pretty easy to get and the pieces make good fillers (using one or two pieces to get get extra slots) to allow you to decorate with some skills that you may need extra in here and there. Also there are multiple ways to make many charms so check the items you are using before making one.

Talismans: overall they seem to come pretty easily in 3U. If you spend some time mining at low/high/G Ranks as you get there and doing the missions spacific for charms (event quests mostly) you will build up a pretty good collection. And since there are so many you can just play around with them and the armors to see what you come up with...

^ this is the casual way of course.. if you are trying to... umm max everything, there are other mrthods but IMO the casual way is just as quick while playing through the game and more fun.
