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 30%
  • critical-boost Level 2: Increases damage dealt by critical hits to 35%
  • critical-boost Level 3: Increases damage dealt by critical hits to 40%

 

A critical hit normally increases the raw damage of your attacks by 25%. With this skill, the bonus raw damage from critical attacks is increased to 30/35/40% instead.

This skill only applies to raw damage. For elemental damage, see Critical Element and True Critical Element.

      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.
