Build Merits This build uses Veil Caster for its high Poison stat. Chameleos Blessing, Foray, Buildup Boost, and Poison Attack all work hand-in-hand to ensure the monster stays poisoned for as long as possible while boosting the weapon's base attack and affinity. Master's Touch and Speed Sharpening should also help with managing sharpness. New to this build is Powder Mantle, which causes an explosion to deal more damage.
As this build can already hit 100% on weakpoints of poisoned monsters, we recommend augmenting the weapon with Attack Boost to maximize damage. For the Kinsect, we recommend an Assist-type like Exalted Alucanid or Gleambeetle for even more damage while keeping your triple-up boost for longer with the Boosted Powder Extract.

Best Insect Glaive Skills

Best Insect Glaive Skills
Power Prolonger
★★★
Extends the duration of Kinsects (from 90 seconds up to 126 seconds at lvl. 3), which improves your overall DPS.
Critical Eye
★★★
Improves damage. Try to always have at leasy 80-100% affinity.
Weakness Exploit
★★★
With the Insect Glaive's aerial mobility, it becomes easy to aim for enemy weakspots which further increases Weakness Exploit's value.
Critical Boost
★★★
Further amplifies critical hit damage. Make sure to have high affinity first before equipping critical boost!
Attack Boost
★★★
Increasing your Insect Glaive's attack rating is a good way to increase DPS.
Master's Touch
★★
Insect Glaive builds tend to have high affinity, allowing us to use Master's Touch to manage sharpness loss efficiently.
Speed Sharpening
Faster sharpening allows you to easily take a quick break in the middle of the fight to refresh your weapons sharpness. Leads to an overall higher damage output for extended fights.
