    Plus speed eating to keep you alive. 

 

Dragoon build

Description

Equipments:

Notes:

  • Made to fight dragons (including Elder Dragons)

 

 Break Down Build(Hammer)

Description: Not an offense build, but a useful build to wear down the monster for your allies.

Equipment:jail_hammer_96x96girros_hammer

  • Dragon King Eyepatch
  • Diablos Beta chestpiece
  • Death Stench Grip Beta
  • Bazel Coil Beta
  • Diablos leggings Alpha

Notes- Use one of the two paralyze hammers. The armor gives you a 30% to stun the monster. The weakness exploit furthers this as you should always strike the head.

Exhaust Decorations should also be added, the idea is that you're trying to boost chances of exhausting, paralyzing, AND stunning the monster all in one go. In the build there will also be focus to charge your hammer faster, earplugs to get free hits in, and I personally added tremor or wind resistance to get in tight. This build has not been fully tested, changes are appropriate.

Lucky Meal Horn


(Description: A good Support  for any Horn, Let the horn be up to your groups needs not the build itself, that's why this build was created )


Equipment :

  • Guild Cross Beta (Head)

  • Commission Beta (Chest)

  • Tzitzi Vambraces Alpha (Arms)

  • Kirin Hoop Beta (Waist)

  • Vangises Greaves B (Legs)

Notes : After That you will have Wide-range 5, Speed Eating 3, Stun Resistance 3, Blight Resistance 3, Divine Blessing 3, Slugger 3,Free Meal, & Horn Maestro.

      You should make builds for specific HRs. Because I just got into Monster Hunter (MHW realed me in) and I'm only HR4, trying to take down that stupid Anjanath.
      -P.S. use the bow, the anjanth can't TOUCH you. The only reason I haven't killed it is because I can't find the time to play...

        Does anyone know what kind of good build I can make with an HR 7 character? I have almost all my armor sets up to the blue flash bulb chicken (seriously listen to the sounds it makes when you hit it) and Staypuff bat thing as I call them. Haven't gone down into the Rotten Vale yet.

          Full Crit/Pierce Bow Build Dragon Piercer Crit Build Equipment: Dragonking Eyepatch a (Pierce Jewel 3) Kaiser Mail b (Trueshot Jewel 1 x2) Bazel Vambraces b (Critical Jewel 2) Vaal Hazak Coil b (Attack Jewel 1 x2) Bazel Greaves a (Attack Jewel 1) Unscathed Charm 2 Villainous Brace (Augment with Health Regen x2 for survivability) Notes: This build relies on draw attack to have full crit after you draw your bow, so its gimmicky but this relies on using Dragon Piercer sheathing and drawing.

            Idk what to call my build because you can use any weapon with it, just change a few gem slots. Shadow shades, vaal mail B, vaal braces B, xeno spin B, vaal greaves B, health charm 3. Gives 11 lvl 1 gems slots, and 1 lvl 2. I'm running with max poison resis, max para resis, max stun resis, max blight resis, max effuvia resis, lvl 2 recovery, lvl 1 widrang to save my buds, protective polish, Gaurd up, and non elemental. Thats for if your using a shield, other wise use dragon king I patch and swap out Gaurd up for weakness exploit. With 3 pieces from vaal your health will anyways regen augment health so every hit gives health back and boom no more death. Obviously you don't have to run the gems I'm using I just join rand missions and dont like switching my stuff around every time so I'm ready for everything. My weapon gives me a lvl 3 gem slot and a lvl 2 be for someone says I have more perks then my armor can give.

              I run a critical set with rath soul helm B, Oda Mail B, Xeno claws A, Dober coil A, and a critical 3 charm. Set hits hard with any weapon with about 10% affinity

                I run the anti monster bulls*** set. Xeno B legs coil and gauntlets. Bazel B helm Damascus B Chest Earplugs III Charm. You have 12 jewel slot to play with depending on your weapon but the most important jewels are 1 resistor 1 flinch free and 3 steadfast. I then tailor the other slots to what I need for whatever weapon I may be using or monster I may be fighting.

                  personally I use the Guild Cross Alpha set with a different elemental res decoration in each of the slots on the armor, a defense 3 charm with a defense decoration in my Extermination's Edge longsword and carrying a both armor charm and talon and the power charm and talon which results in around 408 defense and 23 of each elemental resistance

                    Dragon eye patch,
                    Odo waist and Odo legs, Xeno’jiiva arms, Dober chest while wielding Xeno’Jivva great sword or Odo dual blades for an affinity crit build with minimal weakness. Well my version of such lol
                    Decorations are Expert Tenderizer and challenger and mighty jewels. Charm can be Attack, crit eye, crit boost, or maximum might. Use the combination to fit your style while maximizing what you can without waist

                      Hello! im too lazy to type 2 much but the poison build i use (ye i know raw dmg is best, this just sort of happened) consists of Datura Blaze III, Venom Charm III, 3 pieces of pink rathian heart armor (to unlock poison duration UP)and tool specialist (to spam Apothecary Mantle that enhances status buildup). hope the poison lovers/kushala haters out there will like this base.

                        I just wanted a tank build for anything. Using the Baal helm B, uragaan mail A, uragaan vambraces A, xeno spine B, uragaan greaves B, iron side charm lvl 3, and the glutton gunlance 3. With the right gems gives you max earplugs so you can spam gunlances looping combo, max guard cuz you can block unblockables including the grab moves, max blight resistance, max part breaker, protective polish, and will have 3 lvl gem slots for extra health or a max stun, sleep, or whatever you want depending in the hunt. Obviously you won't be a dmg dealer but you'll never die or have to back away from the monster so just spam the looping combo for a constant flow of dmg.

                          First and foremost, I build this around the idea of my love of glaive, before it was Number 1 weapon in the game (I partially blame how badass I am as to it's current number 1 status hurr hurr). The Glaive is interchangeable, so I'm just going to list armor, pick the glaive you have best suited for the zone or the specific monster you're hunting, and melt them like butter.
                          -you can get most of this set easily early on in high rank, I found it easy at least, then again, I had just hit high rank and was slaying bazelgeze with ease in low rank rathalos armor lol)

                          -Rathalos Helm beta
                          -Ratholos Mail beta
                          -Rathalos Vambraces beta
                          -insert whatever coil you'd like here (I'm currently Using Odogaron Coil Beta, gave a thought to palomu but meh)
                          -Rathalos Graves Alpha
                          -Breaker Charm (Used the Attack Charm until I got this)

                          It slams hard, severs tails with EASE and breaks everything else. Damage is heavy, right from go. Just learn to dodge, and use the air properly and you'll even be taking down nergigante in ~10 minutes. For Kushala Daora, bring flash pods and GG

                            I can't justify using earplugs in this game. Its actually easy to roll a roar this time around, and I don't feel it saves enough time to be worth that many points.

                              CB Build

                              Diablos Tyrannis II - Augmented for Attack and an extra slot for an Attack gem

                              Dragonking Eyepatch w/ Tenderizer Jewel(Weakness Exploit)
                              Dober Mail Beta w/ Capacity Boost Deco
                              Nergigante Vambraces Alpha
                              Nergigante Coil Beta w/ Attack Jewel
                              Nergigante Greaves Beta w/ Elementless Jewel
                              Artillery Charm III

                              Attack +7
                              Artillery +3
                              Weakness Exploit +3
                              Agitator +2
                              Capacity Boost +1
                              Non-elemental Boost +1
                              Maximum Might +1
                              Plus the Nergigante set bonus of Hasten Recovery

                              This is my ideal Diablos CB build. You get all the staples of a CB build plus Agitator +2 , Maximum Might, and Hasten Recovery. Maximum Might is not that great for this build but the set bonus helps. The Nergigante Greaves also have a level 2 gem slot for the elementless gem which is needed. If you don't care about the set bonus you can substitute the legs out but there isn't a ton of great options with level 2 gem slots. A lot of these build have your character looking like a damn fool but this one looks better than most.

                                a very elementary way to play this type of game would be to just stack damage. it is clear the developers did not make a "best" way to kill a monster. honestly the best advice is to understand what each skill does and how each weapon works, and which skills it would benefit from. there will be many clear choices depending on your role. from there you choose your playstyle.
