Surprisingly, good builds are by far and few when looking online so I've decided to ask any current or past users felt about the experience. Now I've heard two distinct arguments so far, one being that SnS saw the least amount of care when Iceborne was released with all these weapon changes as well as it having the lowest DPS of any weapon, the second argument is that the SnS's versatility and survivability make it top tier when in the right hands. Not to mention it's ability to consume items without unsheathing and it's overall fun factor.
I am using the Guardian Starter Set which gives a hefty boost to stamina, vitality, recovery, and Divine Blessing, it just unfortunately limits me to the use of 3 level deco slots.
Back to my fight, It was a longer battle than usual had I equipped my LS or GS BUT, I had so much fun zipping around and I was able to break literally every part on the Banbaro besides a tail cut so it felt like I farmed the hell out of it which wasn't even my intention. But also alongside the Guardian set, it felt so nice not carting once from getting stunned and pummeled, one of my most aggravating moments on other weapons where I can't dodge as fast.
However, this was only one fight and I'm aware that SnS can work with a variety of skills but mostly relies alot on WEX and some other skill I forgot. And if it's not weak, what would the best multi-purpose SnS rather than one for each element? I play a lot of Multiplayer and some Solo but I want to be viable in both instances. I understand not being the heavy hitter of the team but my first SnS fight was actually so much fun that I want to try it out if it's not some weapon considered extremely weak to other weapons.
Otherwise, I'll find another weapon to carry me through. Showing 1 - 15 of 21 comments. Imasock View Profile View Posts. I went from doing hunts in just a few minutes to taking nearly 30 for what should be absolutely easy fights in Iceborne.
The difference is staggering and I'm extremely disappointed as an SnS player. Last edited by Imasock ; 13 Jan am. Can't help with solo play but I play SnS in groups and I started going from raw damage to focusing on mounting as well as abusing the new claw mount or whatever it's called.

It is the only weapon that let you turn your pea shooter into shotgun with 1 buttonthe claw also help negate one of SnS weakness that is its pitiful reach.

The only real weakness they have is lack of reach, but they have the Claw now to reduce that to a minor issue. Maybe next patch they buff my lance. Besides Ruinous Eradication Nerg SnSthese are the only decent multi-purpose sets personally, I prefer more versatile sets than cherry-picking specific weapons for specific monsters.

Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. What we may comprehend as seeing a slow response is due to God not listening to us, we are not taking time to be patient.
God is patient with us and we in return should be patient with him. It is very easy to compare ourselves to others and wonder why something has come through for them but it has yet to happen for us. We need to understand that there is a purpose and reason for something not happening or not changing.
I feel it is us that needs to be doing the changing, starting with being patient. We are all guilty of pre-planning out our future, sometimes it is good but many times it is not. When we create a long-term plan in our hearts, we then quickly find ourselves disappointed and even lost.
God never promised us that our life on earth would be easy, but He did say that there is a time and season for everything. If you continue reading through verse 8 you will see how many things that we consider good end up countering with something we consider bad, but God has told us there is a purpose for it all. We do not know what tomorrow will bring so we should celebrate each day and live by honoring God in the gift of life we often take for granted.
Our lives can change in a blink of an eye which gives us an even more powerful purpose to live for today and not brag about anything that may come tomorrow because we may not see tomorrow. God has given us today and we should rejoice in these moments, not future ones. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.
God has created a plan for each one of us but the way we go about trusting His plan can dictate our overall happiness. When we pray we open up the communication line between God and ourselves. It allows us to go to Him before seeking help anywhere else and it shows our submission to Him and His plan for us. The plans He has for us always exceeds our wildest expectations because it aligns with what we are meant to be doing, not what we expect we should be doing.
The last thing we think of doing in bad situations is waiting. We tend to act hastily without actually thinking or fleeing the issue to avoid certain emotions or the reality of our choices.
When we put our hope in the Lord we find that we can stand quietly and still, giving it over to God since He is in control in the first place. God is always good and has given us the gift of salvation through his son, Jesus Christ. So we should stand still in the middle of the storm and know God is there and is in control.
As our relationship with Him progresses the ability to be patient, still, and obedient only become necessities for this relationship.
