I've been playing with a Handler look-a-like and I'm waiting for AT Xeno to get the Commission layered set, but until that happens I'm thinking about trying out a support SnS build using the actual Commission armor.

So if I'm using:
Commission Gorget B (Tool Specialist 1, 1 Level 2 Slot)
Commission Jacket B (Wide-Range 2, 1 Level 1 Slot)
Commission Vambraces B (Blindsider, 1 Level 2 Slot)
Commission Belt B (Mushroomancer 1, 1 Level 2 Slot)
Commission Pants B (Stealth 2, 1 Level 2 Slot)

What would be a good SnS to use?
And what decos should I hope to get?

I think I'd want to try and fill out Wide-Range and look for Recovery Up (which I think I have a couple of those decos), and I'd expect to get AT Xeno and the layered set before I get a Mushroomancer deco.

Oh damn, I forgot the most important skill for the character

Speed Eating

The Handler absolutely has to have that! Plus I'd imagine it's great for a support SnS build.

Using the commission armor? There's probably not much of a point considering how little skills you get out of it and how most elder dragon pieces are far better even if you don't have many decorations.

And if it's purely for fashion reasons then i;d argue your better off making a build that can handle AT Xeno first and just getting the layered armor since the Guard and Mushroomancer decorations are going to take a long time to get anyway.

If were not using Comission then i'd say something along the lines of:

Empress edge "Styx" (Health regen augment)
Dragonking Eyepatch
Empress mail A
Empress Vambraces A
Empress coil A
Empress greaves A
Guard charm III (Although if you don't guard much you can probably switch it out for whatever)

Since you should be able to get most of that by hunting Lunastra if you've already got commission armor anyway.

Commission is purely for fashion, and I don't quite got it yet, been doing White Winds whenever I see it on SOS.
I haven't even fought Lunastra yet on this character, been holding off on doing that, but when I do I'll definitely be using my Lance setup.

Also I realize using Commission is not optimal at all lol!

Recovery Up and Speed Eating only affect yourself.

Ah, yeah I forgot about that.
Still, wouldn't mind having Speed Eating. Not really looking for the most optimized build.

This was the support set I used for Extremoth:

Empress Edge "Styx" [Brace Jewel] [Friendship Jewel]
Vaal Hazak Helm y [Fungiform Jewel]
Empress Mail b [Gobbler Jewel]x3
Empress Vambraces b [Brace Jewel] [Protection Jewel]
Vaal Hazak Coil y [Protection Jewel] [Vitality Jewel] [Medicine Jewel]
Empress Greaves a [Protection Jewel] [Satiated Jewel]
Mushroom Charm II

Skill wise, this gets you:
Wide-Range 5/5
Health Boost 3/3
Recovery Up 3/3
Speed Eating 3/3
Mushroomancer 3/3
Divine Blessing 3/3
Recovery Speed 2/3 [useless for build]
Dragon Attack 2/5 [useless for build]
Peak Performance 2/3 [some use since all that potion chugging can maintain this]
Flinch Free 2/3
Free Meal 1/1
Razor Sharp
Stanima Cap Up

Only real rare deco is the fungiform which only serves to save on Max Potions and Wide-Range Dash Juices. You can potentially swap jewels around since as others said, Speed Eating and Recovery Up only benefits you. Thats one Large Deco slot and four Small Deco Slots freed up for a little freedom for your set.

I tried TC, but that commission armor set is trash for basically anything.

If you don't care about damage, that styx build above isn't bad at all.

I kinda prefer a hybrid build so that when everyone is topped off, you can contribute in damage.
I think speed eating and mushroom mancer is overkill... one or the other is more than enough.
I use something like this for behemoth when I run support (except i use LS).
