The following tripods are a priority level 5 by skill:

Gear Set

You will use Preordained Diligence from Argos until you hit 1445 item level and can get the Hallucination Set if you are playing Spec/Swift variant, or Nightmare Set/Salvation Set if you are playing Spec/Crit variant.

Bracelet

Look for around 50-70 Spec and around 50-70 Swiftness/Crit on your bracelet depending on the build variant to begin with, these will be the easiest bracelets to obtain and will provide a good damage increase for a low cost.

Endgame bracelets will have 2 static and up to 2 rollable bonuses (3 with Ancient Bracelets). These bracelets also typically want bonuses that compliment each other like Hammer and Wedge, which are difficult to roll.

Endgame bracelets are typically extremely expensive to purchase and roll, costing hundreds of thousands of gold on average. Do not roll for these bracelets until you’ve finished gearing up other parts of your character.

Endgame bracelets should consist of the following affixes:

  • Spec
  • Swiftness/Crit
  • Hammer (Has additional bonuses when rolled together with Wedge)
  • Wedge (Has additional bonuses when rolled together with Hammer)
  • Circulate
  • Ambush
  • Superiority
  • Precise
