Key Points About This Build
MHR Editorial TeamThis build makes great use of the high crit from the Narga weapon Night Eternal. The Focus is just nice to have, and if you can get a Lv 2 Exploit Weakness Talisman, you can change your chest to a Remobra one to get Lv 3 Critical Boost as well.

Key Points About This Build
MHR Editorial TeamSlugger and Stamina Thief are perfect for a weapon that deals blunt damage like the hammer. It's also possible to switch out armor that helps reduce duration time for charge attacks if that is your preference.

Key Points About This Build
MHR Editorial TeamThe Bone Coil has the effect of reducing the duration of your charged attacks. This skill is perfect for the hammer, so it comes strongly recommended. If you should so desire, adding on the Bone Mail and Bone Vambraces to also trigger Stamina Thief would be an interesting changeup to this build as well.

Build Materials List
Key Points About This Build
MHR Editorial TeamThe Hammer uses up a lot of stamina during charge attacks, so having Marathon Runner and Stamina Surge helps you deal with that. After level 4, you start to take a lot more damage on quests, so you'll want to keep your defensive stats a bit higher.
