Armor Set: Dark Rodeo

armor-set-dark-rodeo

Dark Rodeo is a setup meant to take advantage of the Bludgeoner skill built into the Armor Set as well as be useful for mounts. HG earplugs means you can’t be knocked out of the air by roars and Mind’s Eye is great when you are attacking on the ground after a successful mount.
When you use both Vault (+10% damage while in the air) and Mounting, you want to make sure you spend most of the fight in the air, which the IG with its built-in pole vault is capable of doing. This allows you to take advantage of the damage boost as well as being able to mount most monsters consistently, even Elder Dragons.
This is a straight forward Armor Set, but has been fun to play and is Whisper’s go to set when a monster needs to be taken out quickly.
