Dual Blades - Recommended Skills

Skill NameEffect, Reason
Razor Sharp
(Priority: ★★★)
Effect:
Prevents your weapon from losing sharpness.
Reason:
Dual Blades are notorious for their low sharpness so maintaining it is highly recommended. Use either Protective or Razor Sharp to maintain weapon sharpness.
Protective Polish
(Priority: ★★★)
Effect:
Weapon sharpness does not decrease for a set time after sharpening.
Reason:
Dual Blades are notorious for their low sharpness so maintaining it is highly recommended. Use either Protective or Razor Sharp to maintain weapon sharpness.
Attack Boost
(Priority: ★★★)
Effect:Increases attack power.
Reason:
Increases your base Attack. A must-have even when using elemental Dual Blades.
Every Elemental Attack
(Priority: ★★★)
Effect:
Increases weapon's elemental attack
Reason:
Increases your base elemental damage. Can be quite strong as Dual Blades rely on elemental attacks to damage.
Speed Sharpening
(Priority: ★★☆)
Effect:
Speeds up weapon sharpening when using a whetstone.
Reason:
Can be used in tandem with Razor Sharp. Requires only one decoration slot to activate.
Weakness Exploit
(Priority: ★★☆)
Effect:
Increases the affinity of attacks that exploit a monster weak spot.
Reason:
Increases your base Affinity, allowing you to land more critical hits
Critical Boost
(Priority: ★★☆)
Effect:
Increases the damage of critical hits.
Reason:
Incredibly useful when combined with Weakness Exploit. Increases both elemental and physical damage making it rank higher than Critical Element.
Critical Element
(Priority: ★☆☆)
Effect:
Increases elemental damage (fire, water, thunder, ice, dragon) when landing critical hits.
Reason:
Increases the weapon's elemental damage but shouldn't be prioritized over neither Critical Boost nor Attack Boost.
Marathon Runner
(Priority: ★☆☆)
Effect:
Slows down stamina depletion for actions which continuously drain stamina (such as dashing).
Reason:
Can be used if you want to maintain a longer Demon mode. Although not a generally useful skill, for hunters that prefer using Demon mode, this is a must-have.

problems with build stats everywhere

Anonymous 2

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.
