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:
- Level 1: Increases damage dealt by critical hits to 30%
- Level 2: Increases damage dealt by critical hits to 35%
- Level 3: Increases damage dealt by critical hits to 40%
It seems there is a translation error in the skill description, base critical damage is set at 25% without modifier, this skill add 5% to this 25% for each point. So the first point is only a 5% increase in critical damage, not 30%, meaning that this only affects damage, not affinity. So critical hits deal 130% damage for 1 point, 135% for 2 points, and 140% for 3 points.
