Build Merits This build focuses on mitigating the -20% Affiinity on the Tigrex Hammer and taking full advantage of its massive 220 base damage. On weakpoints the Tigrex Hammer will hit with 70% Affinity thanks to Weakness Exploit Lv.3 and Critical Eye Lv.7. This is enough to consistantly deal massive damage to monster heads using Impact Crater.

Best Hammer Skills

Best Hammer Skills
Weakness Exploit
★★★
Increased affinity when hitting enemy weakspots. A vital skill for hammers who needs to stay on monster heads.
Attack Boost
★★★
Higher base attack equates to higher base damage. Simple math for a simple weapon!
Critical Eye
★★★
Flat increase to affinity. Always aim for 80-100% affinity levels!
Critical Boost
★★★
More damage from critical strikes. With Critical Eye and Weakness Exploit, this skill's value rises more.
Slugger
★★
Improves stun rate. Useful for solo due to the lower enemy ailment resistance but also works well in Multiplayer.
Stamina Thief
★★
Some Hammer attacks can exhaust monsters. Increase their effectiveness by investing in Stamina Thief!
Speed Sharpening
Maintaining a Hammer's sharpness bar is a good way to optimize DPS.
Flinch Free

    • Give us the ability to change our layered armor display. What I mean is, ya know how armor looks different on the male and female models? well, I wish there was the ability to change the appearance from the male models of armor, to the female models, and the reverse without changing the gender of your character itself. This would be really nice, as imo some armor pieces look better as the male model version.
