Changes To The Greatsword

Changes From Past Games

1True Charged Slash is somewhat harder to execute
2Now possible to combo Strong Wide Slash into True Charged Slash
3Plunging thrust added as a new combo mid-air attack

The Great Sword hasn't seen very many changes from what we could make out in the Demo. It retains its high-DPS, somewhat simple, easy-to-use playstyle, making it rank quite highly on our weapon tier list.

Best Skills For The Greatsword

The following section includes information from Monster Hunter: World. It will be updated when MHR comes out.

Example Recommended Skills

Skill Recommendation / Overview
Weakness Exploit

Hitting monster weak spots can do critical hits & increased damage

Elongates weapon sharpness gauge but not beyond its maximum
Maximum Might

Affinity increases when stamina bar is full
Non-elemental Boost

Raises the base attack of non-elemental weapons
Attack Boost

Increases attack power plus affinity rate at higher levels
Health Boost

Increases maximum health

The above are some skills that were commonly used in previous games. Great Swords have a slower attack that leaves the player open for attacks, so a max health boost is definitely desirable.

Recommended Greatsword Builds

This section is a work in progress. It will be updated once MHR comes out!

Build Characteristics & Overview

We're not sure what kind of builds will be effective for the Great Sword, but we feel that the addition of Silkbind attacks will give the Great Sword a degree of mobility that will make up for its otherwise slower nature.
