    Hey'll... I updated some of the buff sets since all of today. This will be repeated throughout tomorrow and friday for the rest of them. So look forward to the updates!

    As for Offensive/Defensive Buff Sets and the associated buff sets within them, I renamed it to Balanced Buff Sets, since it paints a better picture of balance using offensive/defensive buffs.

    the following pages have been restored as of V2.6.17!

    The Types of Buff Sets
    Recommended Offensive Buff Sets
    Recommended Offensive Buff Set | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4

    All these buff changes and some description changes with other buffs were reflected in all of the above pages.

    = Changed some things around with the Recommended Equipment Buff Sets, related to the ones now using the Underbarrel Launcher Buff. This meant that some buffs to replace some buffs with got added in as well.

    Removals:
    - None.

    Hope you guys enjoyed this update!
