Critical Boost

critical-boost

Increases the damage of critical hits

 Critical Boost is a Skill in Monster Hunter World (MHW).

 

Critical Boost Effect

Critical Boost is increased in level based on the amount of Equipment with this skill the hunter is using. Each level works as follows:

  • critical-boost Level 1: Increases damage dealt by critical hits to 130% (125% base + 5%)
  • critical-boost Level 2: Increases damage dealt by critical hits to 135% (125% base + 10%)
  • critical-boost Level 3: Increases damage dealt by critical hits to 140% (125% base + 15%)

Keep in mind that critical hits deal 25% more damage than regular hits (this means, without any modifier, critical hits deal 125% damage).

You can increase the level of Critical Boost by equipping the following items.

      There's no mistranslation, just an awkward, poorly worded one. Saying you set it to 130% is no different from saying you increase it by 5%, people just misunderstood it since it doesn't reference criticals doing 125% of your base damage already. Also, even with that confusion, in no way does "increases damage dealt" imply it affects your affinity, so i'm not sure why that's even in the note.
