I did a google search and didn't really find anything satisfactory to me. My pawn will use great gamble so grit is a good choice, here is what I have so far.

Clout
Vehemence
Impact
Grit

Which leaves me with 2 spots. Would Acuity and Attunement have any use without permanently enchanted weapons? Are Damping and Precision any use for pawns? Morbidity would definitely get a spot when I use rusted bow but that won't be all the time. I guess Sinew for carting blast arrows? Can a pawn even hold enough blast arrows to be effective and not waste them all before the big monsters? I definitely don't want my pawn climbing but if she does it anyway would it be worth using Opportunism and Adhesion?

I've been thinking about it a lot and I think I am set on the following augments.

Clout
Vehemence
Impact/Morbidity
Grit
Opportunism
Adhesion

Impact with Revenant Wail and Morbidity with Rusted Bow. Still open to suggestions if anyone has any input though.

I would probably use:

Vehemence
Clout
Impact
Bastion
Awareness
Sinew/grit

But that’s just me.

That sounds like a good suggestion. How exactly does Bastion work? In BBI it will reduce physical damage by 112.5? Is that the same as increasing defense by 112.5 or is it more powerful?

I’m pretty sure it’s more powerful. What I don’t fully understand, is how defense plays into taking damage. What I do understand. Is that with bastion/awareness, we’re talking about instead of taking 1000 damage from a slide kick from an elder ogre, you would instead take 887.5 damage. I’m not sure if that’s calculated before/after defense calculations, but I know for sure it’s a straight up damage mitigation augment.

Alright thanks, I will definitely give them a try.

What about Stability? Great Gamble takes some time to charge up, so does give Stability some value for a Ranger?

I'd be tempted to use both Impact and Morbidity for enchanted weapons, but with GG on a Rusted Bow, I'm not sure how important Impact is.

Sinew and Stability are both nice to have, but of the two, I'd rather have Sinew I think since it's always being used.

Precision would be a good one for Tenfold, but I'm not sure how necessary it would be with GG.

If you're including Vehemence and Clout to enhance default bow attacks and dagger attacks, you might want to include Ferocity as well. But if you're mostly keen on GG's damage, you might consider swapping out Vehemence and Clout for Endurance since it contributes to GG's damage, and maybe Efficacy if your pawn's going to be carrying a lot of mushrooms or something.

Temerity could take the place of both Bastion and Awareness, or be included with them to really up your pawn's defense.

Does Precision have any affect when not moving? I read it is not effective on pawns because they never move when shooting.

I am pretty sure Vehemence and Clout multiply the damage from GG but i could be wrong. Endurance is such a small bonus anyway, my pawn has almost 5k stamina and looking to get to 6k once I get master rings.

Temerity is interesting. The wiki said it works with skills that have charge time, so that means it would work with GG but not with 10 fold?

Thank you.

I don't think Precision would help a GG Ranger either, but it's supposed to tighten Flurry groupings even when standing still. At least it did back on the PS3 - not sure if that's still the case.

It's only an assumption, but I suppose charged attacks can be identified by some kind of charge animation and some kind of resulting increase or decrease in damage - which attacks like 10 fold or Kisses don't have.

Does Strength also contribute to GG damage? I thought it was solely Stamina based. I see what you mean about Endurance. 100 Stamina is just a drop in the bucket compared to your ranger's stamina pool.

Found this short, old thread about Temerity and Audacity on Rangers on the xbox board.

Do you plan on taking any videos? I can only imagine how devastating her Great Gamble's going to be.

I thought that GG used strength but now I checked the wiki it says that it doesn't. I don't know if you have seen the skill data spreadsheet but it looks like it does use strength by that data (weapon and base). https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1EBa1CNhY9LXq7qbyV6Gj4jxBmHSbc3ASp3rIrBrAxpI/edit#gid=274777126

Regardless I will be using 10 fold as well so definitely want to keep both Clout and Vehemence.

I will definitely do some videos but not until I finish all 3 accounts, planning to make 3 GG Rangers to obliterate Daimon (hopefully).
