Build Merits Weakness Exploit and Critical Eye allows us to reach 80% affinity on weak spots while Critical and Attack Boost bolsters our damage numbers directly. Master's Touch and Speed Sharpening are added to easily maintain our Hunting Horn's white sharpness. If you prefer to bolster your offensive prowess a bit more, you can replace Speed Sharpening with Stamina Thief to control monsters easier through exhaustion.

    • 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.
