The following tripods are a priority by skill:

Gear Set

You will use a mixture of Preordained Diligence from Argos and Demon Beast set from Normal Valtan and Vykas until you hit 1445 and can get the Earth's Entropy Set.

The Earth's Entropy set will dramatically increase the damage of your back attacks.

Bracelet

Look for around 50-70 Crit and around 50-70 Specialization on your bracelet 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:

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