Build Merits Element Super Amped Elemental Discharge (AED) is still the king of damage. We choose the Crawling Crusher Charge Blade, as it still has the highest fire element value amongst all of the Charge Blades. Naturally, we're going for Lv.5 Element Boost for our weapon augment.
To increase the damage further, we slot in two Flamescale Jewels for the extra 10% Fire Attack from the Teostra Blessing skill.
Powder Mantle's additional blast damage complements the AED playstyle, as phial discharge counts as hits needed to build up the skill. Firing of an AED will boost you damage, which can, potentially,speed up the hunt!
This build will assume that no Armor Augmentations have been done. You can, potentially, max out the Guard or Burst skill with this method!

Build Merits Element AED is still the king of damage. For the Water Charge Blade, we chose the Armordraad, and for the Ice Charge Blade, we chose the Flickering Blizzard Wail. These two Charge Blades have the highest elemental value in their respective elements and will surely pack a punch!. Naturally, we're going for Lv.5 Element Boost for our weapon augment.
To increase the damage further, we slot in two Ironshell Jewels for the extra 10% Water and Ice Attack from the Kushala Blessing skill.
