Hunting Horn Recommended Skills

SkillEffect / Reason
Horn Maestro
(Priority: ★★★)
【Effect】
Performance speed and shockwave damage increase
【Reason】
This is the most beneficial skill for the HH, make sure to get this!
Attack Boost
(Priority: ★★★)
【Effect】
Increases the player's attack
【Reason】
This is a simple DPS increase. Try to get at least lvl 4 with this.
Weakness Exploit
(Priority: ☆★★)
【Effect】
Hitting a monster's weak point is more effective.
【Reason】
This is just a pure DPS increase if you manage to successfully target a monster's weak points consistently.
Razor Sharp
(Priority: ☆★★)
【Effect】
Reduces sharpness loss.
【Reason】
Sharpness loss means DPS loss, so you'll want to use this to prevent it. Depending on the weapon, you could run Handicraft here instead.

For the “ All-Rounder Bazelreid Rookslayer Build” the female build does not have the Utsushi Set, the head piece equivalent for female is channeler hair tie S (the twins set)

Anonymous 6

You made the new builds with the Rampage Agitato IV, but there is a V now.

Anonymous 5

For the high DPS talisman build, you accidentally put Rathalos Arms S with Attack Jewel 2 instead of Tigrex Arms S with Bludgeoner Jewel 2.
