Build Merits A max DPS Status Build for the Longsword in TU3! We retain the strong point of the ailment build from TU2's Buildup Boost to effectiveley increase our raw damage everytime we apply poison to a monster. We then slot in the standard DPS skills such as Critical Eye, Attack Boost, Weakness Exploit, and Critical Boost. We also slot in a Master's Touch to retain our weapon's Purple and eventually, White Sharpness for a lengthy duration of the fight. However, it's not only retainment of TU2's build that we have, with the new Kaiser armor set, we now gain the ability to maximize the DPS skills with AB easily reaching 7 and being able to slot in the new Powder Mantle skill to level 3. This allows us to gain an additional burst of damage whenever we hit a monster with the blue powder.
We highly recommend using weapon Augment to increase the Megrez's Asterism's rampage slot to 2 to gain access to the species exploit rampage decoration.
