Build Merits Max Attack Boost drives the Evening Calm's total attack to 236 with the Attack Boost III Rampage Skill equipped. Combined with Weakness Exploit and Crit Boost allows for heavy damage against any target.

If you only have a Weakness Exploit lv.1 Talisman, replace one Attack Jewel and one Critical Jewel to make way for Weakness Exploit lv. 3. Then put Powertalon and Powercharm in your Item Pouch to somehow make up for the lost attack points. This should give you a 15-point attack boost .

    • Give us the ability to change our layered armor display. What I mean is, ya know how armor looks different on the male and female models? well, I wish there was the ability to change the appearance from the male models of armor, to the female models, and the reverse without changing the gender of your character itself. This would be really nice, as imo some armor pieces look better as the male model version.
