@NaviAndMii Man, if I was to make a different set for every weapon I like to play, I‘d be playing this game well into 2020 on a daily basis, lol.

All of my Sets have the same basic sub abilities: Ink Saver (Main), Ink Recovery Up and Swim Speed Up. All that ever changes are the main abilities. In my book, a Set is a gear set of the same Main Ability on all three pieces, like my Ink Saver Main Set for example (as seen in my tweet below). So with my Ink Saver Main Set, Ink Recovery Set and Swim Speed Set all done, I aimed for a bit of a hefty goal - do the same with all the other Abilities. But when I went through and picked my favorite gear for the job (what are all the abilities in the world when I don‘t look fresh, amirite?) and thought to myself 'Boy, some of those are real useless and too situational.' So my goal has already been narrowed down. And now with all my Ink Recover drinks gone and the Ink Saver drinks already down to 5 out of the original 9, I decided to write down how many chunks and sea snails I‘d need. The results were shocking: 60 Ink Saver Mains, 110 Ink Recovery Up and 150 Swim Speed Up and 15 Snails to top it all off. So I decided to narrow it down further and as I‘m writing this, I‘m playing with the thought of ditching Sets entirely and focus on the pieces I really like first. For now, I still have 18 matches of Ink Saver Main drink to go through before doing anything else. Maybe I‘ll go for some Cash Food (I did burn through 1 million in a few days so I may need it, lol), maybe some Swim Speed Drinks, we‘ll see.

I really wished they‘d introduce some sort of Chunks Trade Station. I‘m having a literal goldmine of everything but the three abilities I need chunks for and have no idea what to do with them but make perfect gear.

The next Splatfest definitely can‘t come soon enough. At least, after all the cutting I now only need 6 or so Snails to increase the number of slots. The rest can all be spent on re-rolls, yay!

@NaviAndMii Looks like a good setup! My setup also uses Ink Recovery to both help replenish ink quick and spam Suction Bombs, since I didn't have enough room in my set to fit any sub saver. You can never go wrong with more Ink Recovery!

Totally agree that building a complete gear set is incredibly complex. I finished mine about a week ago, and that's just because I decided I didn't need three 'perfect' outfits with three of the same sub ability for each. Otherwise I would still be grinding for chunks, too! I managed to save a little time by getting lucky with an Ink Recovery Drink Ticket, but for the most part, making this set was still a painful grind.

So my gear set may not look 'perfect', or even 'complete', to someone who sees my gear stats, but I'm fine with that. At least yours will look officially perfect and complete when it's done! Best of luck getting the perfect gear!

@GoldenGamer88 Haha! Yeah, I totally agree - freshness should always be the top priority! (..and, may I say, your Ink Recovery set looks SUPERFRESH! ) ..it was only really because they added a whole load of fresh new gear that I decided to build the set I'm going for to be honest - there's a much better selection of Ninja Squid clothing now and some fresh looking combinations to match - which inspired me to undergo 'grind 3.0'

I'm mainly focusing on just the 'base set' to begin with - which'll most likely be the Paisley Bandanna, the Black Polo/White Anchor Tee and whichever set of shoes I (luckily) manage to roll 2x Ink Recovery on first (to halve the grind!) ..then I'll hopefully add a few more sets of shoes to give me a few different options going forward ..can't even begin to imagine how long it'll take me to achieve!!

@Blue_Blur Haha! Yeah, I could've perhaps saved myself quite a lot of time by spreading the abilities out a bit - in the beginning, I just wanted to build something around Ninja Squid, then I kept changing my mind as to what weapon I wanted to build it for, then what abilities I'd need and where I'd need them - then I thought I'd try and factor in a few 'interchangeable' clothing options too (longer term) ..and it was all getting a bit confusing, so I decided to go for the 'cleaner' (and longer!) approach just to simplify one aspect of the process in my mind!

The gear building process just has layers upon layers of complexity - for something that looks so simple on the surface, there's so much to consider! ..you obviously can't have everything, so sacrifices have to be made - then you might randomly roll a couple of subs that improve your game in unexpected ways, which can often take you right back to the drawing board - just settling on a set to target takes time, then you've got a whole lot of grinding ahead of you just to achieve it! (..and then you might choose to start the whole process all over again working towards an alternative set! )

It's great!

EDIT: ..oh, and - yeah, spamming suction bombs can be super handy! You can always set a little trap for someone to walk in to, or reach someone on a high up ledge (something my outfit lacks) - there are so many great options in the game! ..and they're all impeccably well balanced too!

That is definitely true but nothing will replace the first gear piece I ever finished (well, yeah, believed ]to have finished) in my young Inkling‘s heart - the Zekko Hoodie! I haven‘t used it in a long time, though, as my original plan was to be as speedy as possible. Then I favored the extra-large Ink Tank as seen in my tweet. Maybe I‘ll take it out again once I‘m done with/ or on break from all the chunks farmingi, who knows?

Inkjet, no thanks! Ever since its nerf way back, I get splatted every single time I pop that thing. Not like I was ever any good with it beforehand but the nerf secured its position as the never-ever-use Special.

@GoldenGamer88 It's a godsend to nuke people from afar in round stages like Kelp Dome though. Suits the weapon just fine if you ask me.

Just got the nyko kickstand and ordered RL CE. I like the kickstand but unlike Nintendo's updates offers no improved stability.

Also the new nozzle nose might be my new main.

Just launched Splatoon because of the Nozzlenose and saw that there's a new Splatfest coming!
So, which side are you guys choosing? I'm a bit torn between action and comedy (and also think it's suboptimal that the theme is completely ignoring all the other genres), but I think I'll side with Marina for a change.
That said, the timing couldn't be worse. I've got visitors for my birthday party that weekend and probably won't be able to play at all...

My GOTY? Legend Of Zelda: Splat of the child. Ah no, I meant LoZ: Breath of the SPLATOOOON!

Considering I barely watch any movies or tv shows (how long is this movie 2 hours 20 minutes!? Nah, I'd rather play some games), my interest do rather lay in action flicks. Plus, the only comedy that gets me laughing is hard R physical humor. Telling jokes to me is like 'Har, har, you told a joke! Now go away.' So Team Action it is!

Edit: Also I could use you guys‘s help: Does anyone have a Tentatek-branded gear with Ink Saver (Sub) as its main ability, preferably with three stars? The reason I‘m asking for Tentatek is because its likely ability is Ink Recovery Up, the only ability I no longer have drink tickets for, thus making it a tad easier to get my three abilities (Ink Recovery Up, Ink Saver Main and Swim Speed Up) onto that gear. Any help is appreciated.

I was pretty stuck between Team Action and Team Comedy, but I chose Action in the end. I actually like action-comedies the most, like Marvel movies, but whatever.

I, for one, welcome our new Nintendo overlords.

Team comedy all the way! Y'all may laugh but rom-com is definitely my favorite movie genre.

You don't even have to ask - I'm always up for some Salmon Run! (although I can't guarantee that I'll be on this weekend unfortunately )

@NaviAndMii Well, it‘s open this evening and tomorrow. But don‘t sweat it if you can‘t make it this period, I‘m always up for some Salmon Run. Gotta play it every period anyway.

Man, I love the Undercover Brella. Even when the Splat Brella released, I said that the shield breaking off was not very useful for me, so when I found out the Undercover Brella cut that and had continuous fire I was stoked. It's also a surprisingly great splatting tool because no one knows how to deal with a Brella that is actively trying to splat you while its shield is up. I'm not a big fan of the sub, but Splashdown is very useful for it.

@Dev I hope it will be. It struck me as the most interesting-looking out of all four stages. I mean, there's a dinosaur skeleton hanging above the arena, how cool is that? Wonder how many stages we'll end up getting.

@Dev Yeah, I think it'll come shortly after the January Direct with Splatoon 2 being part of the Direct.

Y'know, I'm actually having a bit of a hard time between the Splatfest options...

Oh, right! So I don't know how many here are returning from Splatoon 1 but I was a regular there and I finally got a Switch to call my own. I don't know how to (re-)introduce myself.... so yeah....

It's good to be back.
