Key Points About This Build
MHR Editorial TeamThis build focuses on maximizing DPS with impact phials. Try adding Dulling Strike as your Rampage Skill and activate Artillery using Dango! We've included Load Shells here for pure ease of use, but if you don't need it you can swap it out for Attack Boost.

Charge Blade Recommended Skills

SkillEFfect / Reason
Guard
(Priority: ★★★)
【Effect】
Reduces stamina depletion while guarding.

【Reason】
Combining lvl 1 Guard with the shield buff will you give you power equivalent to lvl 5 Guard! This works best if you can pair it with Offensive Guard.
Rapid Morph
(Priority: ★★★)
【Effect】
Increases the damage and speed of form changing abilities on the Switch Axe and Charge Blade
【Reason】
Your counterattacks after Guard Point will become much faster and stronger with this skill. It will also affect your Element Discharge speed as well.
Load Shells
(Priority: ★★★)
【Effect】
Increases your max number of shells.
【Reason】
At level 2, you'll get more Phials with this skill. It can be hard to find a spot to run this skill, but it's quite recommended. Make sure to adjust depending on the type of phial you're using: for impact phials, use attack, for element phials, boost your elemental damage.
Focus
(Priority: ★★☆)
【Effect】
Increases the gauge speed of the Charge Blade
【Reason】
You'll be able to fill up Phials faster with this skill. That being said, now that we have Counter Peak Performance, this skill isn't as high priority as it was before.
