Take Advantage of its High Affinity

For any build incorporating the Ninja Sword, the Hi Ninja Sword's 100% Affinity is without a doubt its primary draw. With a guaranteed bonus of 25% to all its attacks because of affinity, the Hi Ninja Sword has an effective raw damage stat of 250.

To know more about Affinity, check out our guide here:

What is Affinity?

Use Handicraft to Increase its Sharpness

As both Ninja Sword I and Hi Ninja Sword max out at Green Sharpness, the Handicraft Skill, which will bring it up to Blue Sharpness, is key for breaking through hard monster parts which it would otherwise bounce off of.

Sharpness Guide: How Does Sharpness Work?

Mind's Eye is an Option, but Inferior than Handicraft

You can opt to just use the armor skill Mind's Eye to mitigate being bounced off of monster parts.

However, Green Sharpness only has a x1.05 damage multiplier compared to x1.20 damage multiplier of Blue Sharpness. This huge discrepancy will affect your overall performance during your hunt.

Mind's Eye Skill Effects

Master's Touch Will Maintain its Sharpness

To prevent its Blue Sharpness from fading, players can use the Master's Touch Armor Skill to maintain sharpness on critical hits. As the Hi Ninja Sword will always yield a critical hit, it can utilize this skill with maximum efficiency.

    • 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.
