Doggy Paddler


A nice set to mix and match with.If you can try to get rid of the Doggy Paddler and boost the Guard +1 to Guard +2

If you also equip any two-slot helm (e.g. Alloy) and two-slot greaves (e.g. Rathian) then you have five jewel slots - this can be increased if you also have a weapon slot - good for boosting Guard +1 to Guard +2 and getting rid of Doggy Paddler.

Also the high rank version of this has the same skills so it is a good idea to upgrade when you can.
