|Partbreaker||Partbreaker will be extremely helpful against Frostfang Barioth. Breaking both of his fangs will make his breath attacks weaker, and breaking his front legs/wings will make him slower (meaning you will have more openings to attack him).|
|Evade Window||Evade Window adds invincibility frames to your evade, making it easier to dodge Frostfang Barioth's attacks.|
|Guard||Instead of Evade Window, Guard will be more useful to have as a shield user.|

|Health Boost||Having more health is always a good thing!|
|Earplugs||Frostfang Barioth has a big roar, so having Earplugs at Lvl 5 can be useful.|
|Clutch Claw Boost||If you have a light weapon that cannot tenderize in one go, it will be helpful to have this, especially since you want to prioritize breaking Frostfang Barioth's fangs and front legs.|
