Changes To The Insect Glaive

Changes From Past Games

1Descending Thrust removed
2Rock Steady effect (skill) from extracts has returned
3Kinsect mechanics have changed
4Lost the ability to mount monsters
5Tornado Slash now easier to use
> Possible to animation cancel by recalling your Kinsect, so you won't fall on your back

The Insect Glaive has unfortunately received a lot of nerfs, leaving a lot to be desired. This is one weapon that has seen a lot of its uniqueness and glory taken over by the addition of the Wirebug. Losing the ability to mount monsters and use Descending Thrust are also two big negatives for the Glaive.

Build Characteristics & Overview

The Insect Glaive is a high mobility weapon that allows you to traverse a battlefield quickly. It also has the interesting Extract system which gives it a bit of flexibility. Unfortunately the weapon seems to have taken a bit of a hit with the changes in MHR. That being said, it's still possible to dish out good damage with it, so don't despair.
