    Hey everyone, I was hoping if anyone had any the following rare equipment. I know that there are better brands to obtain the subs the equipment is some of my favorite-looking gear in game;

    :head_eye002:: :ability_inkrecovery::ability_inkrecovery::ability_inkrecovery: OR :ability_swimspeed::ability_swimspeed::ability_swimspeed: Or a Mix of Both

    :head_ncp003:: :ability_swimspeed::ability_swimspeed::ability_swimspeed: OR :ability_inkrecovery::ability_inkrecovery::ability_inkrecovery: OR :ability_inksavermain::ability_inksavermain::ability_inksavermain:

    :clothes_swt006:: :ability_inkrecovery::ability_inkrecovery::ability_inkrecovery:

    :shoes_shi005:: :ability_inksavermain::ability_inksavermain::ability_inksavermain: OR :ability_inkrecovery::ability_inkrecovery::ability_inkrecovery:

    Strapping REDS : :ability_inkrecovery::ability_inkrecovery::ability_inkrecovery: OR :ability_swimspeed::ability_swimspeed::ability_swimspeed: Or a Mix of Both


    Thank you so much for taking the time to read this post. If you need anything I'd to check and please let me know if you own any of the listed gear.

    I have semi-pure Moto Boots (i.e. the first two secondary abilities are the same as the primary ability).
    I read that there is a 0.5% chance of getting all three secondary abilities. The chance of getting only the first two abilities is 9.5%, which is much better. Once you get the first two, you can manipulate the third. The pre-unlocked abilities are determined when you order the gear, so turning off the console when Spyke shows you the gear will have no effect.

    Sorry got none of that, though there are alternatives to some of them. I don't think it's worth going through the hassle of shiny making when you could just use say the Sun Visor which is :ability_bombrange: and favors :ability_inkrecovery: instead of trying to get Pilot Goggles with 3x :ability_inkrecovery:

    Hey guys. Im currently on a quest to make the ultimate ink brush ranked build and so far I have
    :head_eye004::ability_tenacity::ability_specialsaver::ability_specialsaver::ability_specialsaver:
    Cycling Tee :ability_coldblooded::ability_specialcharge::ability_specialcharge::ability_quicksuperjump:
    :shoes_bot003::ability_inkresistance::ability_specialcharge::ability_specialcharge::ability_runspeed:
    I want to try and make them all have :ability_specialcharge:x3 sub and am almost there with the shirt and the shoes. The issue I am dreading is trying to get the triple :ability_specialcharge: sub on the :head_eye004: since Zekko has SCU as the unfavorable brand. Does anyone have the :head_eye004: with at least one :ability_specialcharge: sub? Three would be ideal but one is cool too.

    EDIT: This outfit honestly is for effectiveness and style which is why I chose the glasses over the mask or the bobble had..or the special helmet.

    Is it possible if I could get the Black Arrowbands off you? Still haven't been able to buy them even though I've bought every single item that I can so far...

    I've been using a pure Sun Visor and ideal gear. I'm just going through the major hassle because I want the cosmetic appeal while keeping the ideal subs. Thanks for the advice though much appreciated.

    Since it seems most people turned their Squid Girl Dress pure, I guess I'll just go for that instead and then return my Part Time Pirate to being a perfect with 3x ink recovery. I forgot who exactly but I'm pretty sure some of you all already have it, and if so please let me know!

    Noice! I might want that since I did start the purification proccess on it already, however I later realized I don't use that much Swim Speed on any of my combos and I already plan on getting a Pure Swim headgear which should be enough. Definitely let me know if you decide to purify the cap!

    Probably don't really need this, but eh I'll take it!

    And I normally have the worst luck ever! :L

    It's gonna get a true test today though, as after I roll a perfect:clothes_tes008: and :clothes_tes013:, there aren't anymore natural combos that are of use to me left, so no choice but to stop procrastinating and work on more pure/shiny gear! Here's some of what I'm planning on making in case anyone has any of this already.

    :head_eye004: :ability_tenacity: | :ability_inkrecovery::ability_inkrecovery::ability_inkrecovery:
    :head_eye002: :ability_bombrange: | :ability_bombrange::ability_bombrange::ability_bombrange:
    :head_hbd002: :ability_damage: | :ability_swimspeed::ability_swimspeed::ability_swimspeed:
    :head_eye005: :ability_damage: | :ability_bombrange::ability_bombrange::ability_bombrange:
    :clothes_shirt006: :ability_inksavermain: | :ability_inksavermain::ability_inksavermain::ability_inksavermain:
    :clothes_vest003: :ability_haunt: | :ability_quickrespawn::ability_quickrespawn::ability_quickrespawn:
    :shoes_shi000: :ability_inksavermain: | :ability_swimspeed::ability_swimspeed::ability_swimspeed:
    :shoes_sht009: :ability_quickrespawn: | :ability_quickrespawn::ability_quickrespawn::ability_quickrespawn:

    I'm also gonna try and purify the Legendary Cap and Hero Armor Jacket, but yeah those can't be traded.

    I'm wanting to work on them pilot googles, but the guy who has them isn't active right not because of uni. So I don't even have a 2 sub for them yet.

    Well this took a whole damn day!

    [​IMG]

    However I was actually hoping to get 3x swim speed or bomb range up as I'm sure most people are going for pure Snorkel Masks and Squash Headbands so it woulda been easy enough to get ordering off of them, but hey I'm certainly not complaining! I'm just glad my E-Liter set-up is finally finished! Next I'm gonna work on getting Ink Recovery up in atleast the first two slots on the Black Arrowbands ( :head_eye004: | :ability_tenacity: ) as it's necessary for some of my combos.

    I wouldn't recommend the Legendary Cap for an E-Liter since the cap is so big and makes you easy to see over ledges.

    That doesn't really matter, but what does is the fact that even with 4 more strength up subs than needed for the E-Liter to 2 hit kill with uncharged shots and Burst Bombs to always 2 hit kill as long as one is a direct hit, they still wont against enemys with a single defense up main. Even completely maxing out strength up wouldn't be enough to break through it, so that's pretty strange and unfortunate. Atleast now I know that the most amount of strength that should be used on the E-Liter be 2 mains and 6 subs, as that's the minimum for maximum kill potential and give you essentially two main ability slots to use however.

    Yeah this post has been off topic, but no longer! Due to the above revelation, I can now use another ability in my E-Liter combo aside from Strength Up and Ink Recovery. Well I'm currently using Swim Speed, but another option I wanna try be Tenacity. However none of the Tenacity gear's brands are strength ups so a new shiny is in order! Since there's now two possible Shinys I'd be okay with getting on Tenacity gear, I'm just gonna go for a triple on those Black Arrowbands. Already gotten Ink Saver Main and Run Speed Up, so this shouldn't be too difficult, I hope!

    I have one piece of shiny gear, which is the Fake Contacts with Defense Up Subs. I got it naturally and I'll probably reroll it anyway since Ink Recovery is better than defense in my opinion.

    I plan on getting Pure on the Squid Hairclip, Legendary Hat, and Squid Girl Dress but I haven't taken the time to do it yet.

    EDIT: Holy crap! I didn't know you could get triples from buying gear off Inklings! This changes a lot!
