So which set effect should you use? Remember, you should almost always pair 2 piece sets with 4 piece sets. This will give you two different effects. An alternative is to use three 2 piece sets. That way you can get the maximum number of effects you can get with 6 rune slots. Common combinations include:

  • 4 Fatal and 2 Blade for offensive monsters
  • 6 Energy for defensive monsters
  • 2 Energy and 4 Blade for a balanced attack monster
  • 4 Energy and 2 Guard for a defensive monster
