Key Points About This Build
MHR Editorial TeamThis is a build with a slightly easier barrier to entry in terms of its talisman. The DPS difference from this and having a Lv 2 Weakness Exploit Talisman isn't that huge, so you should be fine with this build.

No Talisman Affinity Build

↓ This build doesn't require the use of a Talisman.

There is an error in the best elemental build (no error in the second build with easier talisman), the belt used does not have a slot for a decoration so it is not possible to get +5 element bonus for all element and will be compulsory for dragon to put the element decoration on Zinogre Head.
