Recommended Combos Of Charge Blade

Combo To Use At The Beginning Of The Combat

Toward enemy's roar, ZL + AX + AR + ZLA

Use this combo at the beginning of the combat towards large monster's roar to fully charge your phials and enter Element Boost status. Use Counter Peak Performance toward the 1st attack of the monster again to fully charge the phials again.

Quick Phial Filling Combo

Hold AX+A→Hold AZR+A→ Step

A combo to fully charge your phial quickly. Use it while the enemy has opening. By using step at the end of the combo can reduce the recoiling time. If you are having hard time landing Charged Double Slash, use Spinning Slash instead.

Quick Element Boost Combo


A combo to make your shield elementally boosted quickly. Since it's a long combo, always be ready to cancel the combo when the enemy's about to hit you.

Changes From Past Monster Hunter

No Power Axe Mode

The Power Axe mode which used to exist in Monster Hunter World can not be used in Monster Hunter Rise. This lowers Charge Blades' DPS but you can still deal heavy damage with moves like Element Discharge II.

Rising Slash Doesn't Launch Other Players

Rising Slash no longer launched other players into the air. You can now use this move freely without bothering other hunters.

Harder To Land Super Element Discharge

The range of explosion caused by Super Element Discharge got narrower. You need to aim it carefully to fully land the explosive attack on the enemy.

Tips On How To Use Charge Blade

Charge Phials By Attacking By Sword

You can charge the Sword Energy to fill the phials by attacking in Sword mode. Since you'll be consuming this phial during Axe mode for higher DPS, try to fully charge this phial during the combat.

Use Phials For Elemental Boost

By using Elemental Boost Spinning Slash, you'll consume all of your phials and become elementally boosted. While in this state, you can perform higher damaging Element Dischage. The more phials you consume, the longer your elemental boost will be.

Merits Of Elemental Boost

1You can use Super Element Discharge
2Condensed Element Slash will become more powerful
3Deals phial damage with Guard Point

Use Counter Peak Performance Effectively

You can fill the phials much faster by using Counter Peak Performance. This move works against enemy's roar so use it effectively. Note that you can't counter toward enemy's consecutive attacks.

Maintain Sword Boost Mode

By performing a Condensed Element Slash during an Elemental Boost, you can enter Sword Boost Mode. In this mode, your attack won't be deflected and will also gain additional phial damage.

Utilize Guard Point

The Charge Blade possesses an unique feature called Guard Point. When the shield is facing forward during certain attack animations, it will block incoming attacks, allowing you to counterattack much faster!
