Offensive Guard

windproof-skill-mhw

Temporarily increases attack power after executing a perfectly-timed guard.

 Offensive Guard is a Skill in Monster Hunter World: Iceborne (MHW:IB).

 

Offensive Guard Effect

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

  • windproof-skill-mhw Level 1: While active increases attack power by 5%
  • windproof-skill-mhw Level 2: While active increases attack power by 10%
  • windproof-skill-mhw Level 3: While active increases attack power by 15%

 

In order to execute a perfect guard you have to activate the guard in a short window before the attack hits the shield. Lance counter-thrusts and Charge Blade guard points also count as perfect guards.

All weapons with a shield can perform perfect guards including Heavy Bowgun with shield mods.

      Can this be triggered by blocking an allies' attack in multiplayer? Maybe give allied greatswords extra strong wakeups if that's the case.

        This does actually work with the heavy bowgun's shield mod. You lose your guard frames when shooting and gain them back when you go back into an idle stance. If you block an attack right when your guard frames reactivate, offensive guard will proc. The timing is kinda awkward, but it works.
