Grounded Scarlet Embrace | What does the Ladybug Armor set bonus do?

Grounded Scarlet Embrace

The Grounded Scarlet Embrace set bonus gives players the ability to regenerate health. The Scarlet Embrace buff is unlocked by crafting and equipping every piece of Ladybug Armor; that’s the Ladybug FaceplateLadybug Chestplate, and Ladybug Shin Guards.

Gradual health regen comes in very handy and can prevent deaths, which often mean loss of crafting materials and items. Getting hold of the Scarlet Embrace Ladybug Armor set bonus is something you probably want to do ASAP as a result. It also helps that a complete Ladybug Armor set massively boosts your blocking strength and grants +78% defense.

In order to craft a complete Grounded Ladybug Armor set, you’ll need to kill several ladybirds. These spotted red bugs tend to roam in wide-open areas and aren’t hostile until you attack them. Use this to your advantage and prepare in advance of the fight; you might also want to try and pit the ladybug against other creatures so that they can do some (or all) of the work for you.
