    Please check application on iOS for iphone SE size.
    I have problem with set searcher, it’s not working correctly after last update (doesn’t show results, but if i use “Return last search results” button, i can’t equip any set from results) .

    Best regards,

    1. The fix is uploaded already, please wait, while apple is processing update (usually takes about 1-2 days).

    I’d like to suggest the possibility to sort the builds list. Since you can select the weapon and the platform, maybe you could also implement a sorting mechanism.
    I.e. I want to sort by raw damage, or by elemental damage, or by element type, or even by weapon rarity.

    1. Yes, it’s possible, this is ironically what I am working for the next patch on, the set / equip filters.

    I was thinking that maybe you could add in on PC and the mobile app which weapons have high/medium/low elderseal when you’re searching for which weapon to add onto the set you’re creating. Also, maybe allowing to see a description of what each skill does and a description of what you get at each level of that skill on the mobile app.

    1. It’s possible, why not.

    Hunting Horn Elemental Up song currently does not ignore the elemental cap of weapons.

    Currently I’m unable to use the builder with adblock disabled. I had to enable adblock and refresh the page before any menus would load when I clicked a button. Tried several times.

    1. That’s very strange issue, let me investigate it.

      1. Hello, I’m having a similar issue on the web version of the set builder. At the end of the load cycle it freezes and says…

        Failed to load Set Searcher script…
        Failed to load DB Init script…
        It seems you’re using AdBlock or similar browser extension. Please whitelist and refresh the page.

        But I do not use adblock. This occurs on every browser that I use, and it only started happening recently. Thanks for all the work that you do. Cheers.

    can you add the amount of possible empty deco slots in the ‘You also may add skills’ tab of the set searcher?
    highly appreciate your work

    1. Yes, i’m working on more options for set searcher right now.

  1. hello, i have a question, a few days ago i can access all public profiles, and since yesterday, i can’t see any builds that have kjarr and taroth weapons, it’s just doesnt show up at all. I opened a past build that have kjarr or taroth, it gave a weird error, basically still in the “checking” screen but says 2 no jewels, any ideas?

    1. There were a some bunch of bugs nowadays, since I’ve added a lot of datamined stuff to databases. I’ve just checked public profiles page, it shows all weapons for me. Can you specify the weapon type you’re searching for?

        I can’t search for any KT weapons in the new search bar, although it is a great improvement from the last search.

        1. Which weapon type?

            • Kraeven
            • Kræven on 13th May 2019 at 8:17 am

            Any type. I just tried searching for Kulve and Kjárr weapon of any type for all types and none appear.

            Have you tried soft refresh (Shift + F5 / Ctrl + Shift + F5 for different browsers)?

    It appears that the skill Luna Razor Sharp doesn’t show up on current equipment skill list on all weapons except LBG

  2. It looks like both Master’s Touch set options just changed into only behemoth. Just being listed as “Master’s Touch” twice.

    1. This is a bug, we used literal search for skills, but with adding multi-language support it bugs hard, I will be fixing this issue today, I hope.

      1. Quickly wanted to ask, if the issue is supposed to be fixed, because it is not for me. It only shows the drachen set and if I ignore 2 of the set items it shows 0 results for masters touch.

        1. Can you make a screenshot or just a list of skills you’re using?

        2. I’ve found that issue, was happening when you have master touch as your _last_ skill in skill filters. Should be working fine from now, enjoy!

    On hunting horn. The elemental song formula seems wrong.

    I believe the correct formula for the bonus should be:
    Small: (Weapon base elemental value * 0.075).
    Large: (Weapon base elemental value * 0.1).

    200 Elemental base + 30 from 1 deco.
    Small = 230 + 200*0.075 = 245 = 250 after rounding up
    Large = 230 + 200*0.1 = 250

    In addition to that, the song should not allow elemental values above the weapon’s elemental cap. The builder currently busts the cap when adding the songbuff.


    I think there’s some issue with Cat attack buff stacking with hunting horn’s buff. Not very sure what the issue is, but it seems to be off by a small amount. Cat buff alone works fine. Self-improvement + AuXL alone works fine too.

    1. Can you check how it works with % bonus from elemental skills?

        Upon doing more thorough testing, Small elemental up is actually 0.08.

        It stacks multiplicatively. So taroth pipe water with 630 elemental. And 4 stream deco (5% + 100 bonus)
        (630*1.05)*1.08+100 = 814.42 = 810 displayed.

        Also, I can’t figure out how 5 rounds. I’m guessing it is some form of floating point error 😐
        Before song:
        (67500*1.05)*1.00+100 = 70975, Displayed value is 70970, it rounded down..
        After song:
        (67500*1.05)*1.08+100 = 76645, Displayed value is 76650, it rounded up…
        Another example: 4 deco, large song
        (3000*1.05)*1.1+100 = 3565, Displayed value is 3560, it rounded down…

        Some rambling:
        I ended up modding weapons to test this since the highest elemental value I had was Taroth pipe water with 630 elemental (I think it’s the highest in the entire game?), which caps too easily and makes it impossible to do any testing and infer anything accurately.

        For example, if my hypothesis were that it stacks addictively instead of multiplicatively: (630* (1.05 + 0.08))+100 = 811.9.
        It would still show 810, and it cannot prove or disprove the hypothesis that it adds addictively.

        It was for the same reason I thought the small song was 0.075: (630* (1.05 + 0.075))+100 will also show a value of 810.
        The margin of error was just too huge with the low default weapon values.

  3. I ran into a problem with the set searcher again. Teostra armor is working fine now, but I can make a set with some skills and evade Extender 2. But if I search for the exact same skills I have on that build with Evade Extender 2 it shows 0 results. With Evade Extender 1 it shows many results.

    1. Should be fine now.

    The set builder (which is awesome BTW) can’t build sets with both Free Element/Ammo Up and Non-Elemental Boost. They seem to cancel eachother out and only 1 can be searched for.

    Bit of a pain when making Bowgun builds.

    1. Please check, if selected weapon is set to any bowgun.

    I can’t seem to get the web version of the builder to work after the update. I get the following message at the bottom of the load cycle…

    Failed to load Set Searcher script…
    Failed to load DB Init script…
    It seems you’re using AdBlock or similar browser extension. Please whitelist and refresh the page.

    However, I’m not using adblock, and I’ve tested it on other browsers with similar results.

  4. So the builder tells me to remove adblock when it is not on the browser. I have a fresh edge browser and will not let me use it.

    1. Hmmm, it seems smth wrong with Edge and IE support, let me test it myself.
