Expedition weapons and gear?

Is it worth trying to put in a couple hours of hunting for a very good unique weapon and armour set. I'm currently looking look for a weapon i can use in G rank fights. Mainly SnS, and insect glaive.

Doing Expeditions for gear is fairly worthless. Most of the craft-able weapons will out-damage or just be more useful than ones you find in the G-rank Expedition. You'll only really do the Expedition for points to farm or buy those Dust of Lifes, or to grind out Guild Quests you want.

Most of the best weapons in the game will be from Guild Quests at Level 136+, with Beshackled gear. But you're going to have to go through hell to reap the benefits.

BerkelYou're right about Beshackled stuff giving the best odds, but even Champion's gear can yield weapons with the highest stats, though it's obviously rare as hell. So it's actually worth going to secret areas once your quest reaches 126.
Also Pickle and Monkey have a chance at dropping a Beshackled something as their first quest reward from 126 and on, at 15% for each. At 136+ they'll give a stack of two Beshackleds guaranteed.
Most elders have a 20% Beshackled armor and 20% weapon chance from 126 and on.

So you might get lucky early on. Maybe.
Probably not.

MrSmithWell, then i guess i better avoid expeditions for gear for now.
