Flash in the Night
|Talisman Skill||Attack Boost Lv. 3|
Attack Boost Lv. 6
| Dragonheart Lv. 5
Resentment Lv. 3 | Resuscitate Lv. 3
Critical Boost Lv. 3 | Weakness Exploit Lv. 3
Speed Sharpening Lv. 2 | Flinch Free Lv. 1
|Build Merits||This build pumps as much damage as possible through the full Valstrax Set, Attack Boost, and Critical Boost. Flinch Free is included to negate flinches in multiplayer but you can swap it out for another level of Speed Sharpening whenever you're hunting solo.|
Whether you're just breaking in the High Rank at HR 4 or are just looking for some new strategies at HR 100, we've got the best High Rank Sword and Shield builds to spice up your hunts.
|Raw Damage Build||HR 100+|
|Dragon Slayer Build||HR 100+|
Check out the best Sword and Shield builds for Monster Hunter beginners or for speeding through Village Quests or Low Rank Gathering hub.
|Maximum KO Build||Village Quest ★4 to ★6|
|Critical Eye is a near necessity for critical builds.|
|Amplifies critical damage by 5%/10%/15% (based on level). A must have skill for any affinity build.|
|Increases affinity by 10/30/50% when hitting enemy weakspots. Easier to max out than critical eye and gives higher affinity if used properly. Goes well together with Critical Boost.|
|More damage is always welcome. It gains a percentage bonus at rank 4 which is a good level to always aim for.|
|Chance to negate sharpness loss when attacking.|
|Makes it easier to stun monsters. It works for the Sword and Shield thanks to its various shield bash moves.|
|Some endgame Sword and Shields tend to have a lot of room for improvement regarding their sharpness. With that in mind, consider using Handicraft for your builds!|
|Guard reduces stamina depletion which makes the SnS a really tanky weapon.|
|For those crucial times in the middle of fights where you need to raise your sharpness. Less value due to the ability to die palamutes.|
|Great for multiplayer. Never get flinched by ally attacks again!|

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.
