NEO: The World Ends with You - Pin Sets

When it comes to Pin sets, this is what you should go for. Post-game is tough, and grinding/farming will be as well, so you need every boost you can get. By collecting certain pins and equipping these, you activate pin set boosts. Combining that will Thread Abilities can raise your stats really good, thus preparing you for tough challenges. I will mention just some sets I went with, maybe it can help.

Yearlong Ensemble pin set + Hotaru pin

When I was looking what to come up with for Post-game and grinding, I did find this particular set. When you equip it, you drain HP from enemies and Heal, plus it's good for raising Groove and doing combos. This will probably be your choice until you get the Black Cat Ensemble set.

You will need 4 pins, plus I added one good pin that goes really good along with this set.
