Best Armor Augments and Armor Recommendations

Carting is Still Possible

When Berserk is active, switching to the Blue Scroll will turn all your green health to red and will naturally decrease. Switching back to the Red Scroll will convert half of your red health to green and stop its decrease.

Unlike Dereliction and Bloodlust though, when your red HP reaches zero with Berserk, your Hunter will faint! Keep this in mind when Berserk is in your builds.

Invincible As Long as You Have Red Health

Invincible is the keyword here. As long as the red health has not reached zero, all incoming attacks would not damage your Hunter. This doesn't mean you can't be thrown off though, those effects get retained.

Gauge Depletes Faster When Hit

Yes, you won't take damage when hit under the effects of Berserk but getting hit will increase the depletion rate of your red health gauge. We recommend to still try evading moves whenever you are under the effects of Berserk.

Eat a Gourmet Fish

Eating Gourmet Fish increases the recovery of red health and natural recovery. Since all your health turns red under Berserk, eating this fish dramatically slows down the depletion rate!

Gourmet Fish Location: How to Get and Effects

Use Kushala Blessing with Recovery Up

The skill Recovery Up Lv. 3 directly benefits the continuous health recovery provided by Kushala Blessing Lv. 3. This is helpful for mitigating the loss of red health from Berserk. Recovery Speed, on the other hand, had no direct benefit.

Testing shows that the combination of Kushala Blessing, Recovery Up, and Gourmet Fish provided the best results in mitigating red health loss. Using this combination can also be helpful in recovering from the Frenzy damage left by Bloodlust, a skill present in the same armor set of Berserk (Chaotic Gore Magala).

Recovery Speed Does Not Affect Kushala Blessing

Recovery Speed is a good choice in situations where you must recover red health quickly (also in cases where you do not wish to use recovery items).

However, this skill does not directly benefit the health gain from Kushala Blessing and will have no effect on health recovery beyond red health.
