Ok this is weird, I decided to just go for the Akantor R armor since it's much easier to farm. I find that I just need 15 hyper pyroscales, no problem. I solo Hyper Glavenus 5 times in a row and not a single Hyper Pyroscale drops.

According to Kiranico, it has a chance of 45%. I'm really having a bad luck with this thing.

Actually, I didn't need a gunner set for the subquest farm. 2 mounts from my Aerial CB does the trick. 5-10 minutes a run, which is not bad at all.

SInce I have maxed out Dreadking armor, I can't think of any use for an Akantor Blademaster Armor other than I like how it looks and it's easy to upgrade, unless there are weapons that would go great with it. Any suggestions?

How is the Akantor armor as a main gunner armor?

Actually with a decent LBG set you can even subquest in less than a minute. With decent Thunder/P.Thunder it is fast, but I find using Arm Cannon X with Dazzling S is faster. The set I usually use for it is True Shot Up, Ammo Save, Load Up, and Partbreaker.

Yeah, I know this feeling. I usually farm Lavasioth/Agnaktor for this though.

Hyper Pyro Scales are rare or something?

Unfortunately, I'm not as familiar with those 2 as I am with Glavenus so I was farming him instead.
If you don't mind, can you pls share what armor you're using for that set?

I'll sometimes rotate Agnaktor, Glavenus, and Lavasioth all day and get like 2 or 3. It seems like I literally never have enough of them.

Pierce Up
Repeat Offender/Criteye+3
Evade Extender
Adept Style

This is the basic HBG set you'll need.

For LBG:
(Probably the Astalos LBG)
Thunder Atk+2
Bonus Shot is a personal choice but usually it is worth getting, especially on monsters as tanky as Akantor/Ukanlos.
True Shot Up (for Thunder lvl2 and Piercing Thunder Azzy LBG gets)
If possible, Elemental Crit, it could also replace Bonus Shot if you want.

And of course, Adept Style for at least defensive reasons.

The Legs and Arms (I think) are +5 Pierce. Basically pivotal to Pierce Mixes.


That's Akantor R, btw. Standard Akantor stuff is different.

Thanks to those who corrected me, wasn't paying full attention. On that note, by the time you can farm Akantor, you'll probably have the R series or be close to getting it, so I highly suggest doing that and getting parts of the Akantor R armor. At this point, full sets aren't the best for gunning.

I'm close to it I believe. I just need to complete the quest where I have to collect 40 coals I think, then fight 3 hyper tetsucabras. Hopefully, I can do that just fine. It's not that I can't solo it, it's more like I'm worried I might not have enough time to hunt all 3. But I'll worry about that once I've gotten all 15 hyper pyro scales.

I dunno if Ultra Lucky Cat worked. I decided to do a hunt with Ultra Lucky Cat and got 2 of them, but they were on the subquest reward section though so I'm not so sure but it might help a lot.

Btw, How bad is hellblade compared to Hyper Glavenus? Is it slightly bad or doesn't even come close to hellblade in difficulty? I'm doing this as sort of a practice for when I do hellblade. I want that badass looking long sword.

I think Hellblade is easier than Hyper personally, but neither are very much trouble.
