Build Merits This build uses the Ascella's Asterism to knock down monsters with high raw damage and a touch of Poison. Attack Boost, Critical Boost, Chain Crit, and Poison Attack are used to boost the weapon's overall damage output. In addition, Critical Eye, Weakness Exploit, and Bloodlust allow the weapon to have guaranteed critical hits on weak spots. To round out the build, it also runs Speed Sharpening and Handicraft to better maintain purple sharpness, and a point in both Flinch Free and Wirebug Whisperer for utility.
When using this build in solo hunts, you can swap out one Brace Jewel 1 for one Venom Jewel 1 to increase your Poison build-up.
To upgrade this build further, we recommend adding the Rampage Slot Upgrade Augmentation to the weapon. Doing this allows the use of Anti-Species Rampage Decorations such as Anti-Dragon Jewel 2, which improves the build's overall damage output.

Build Merits This build using the Royal Order's Bludgeon+ features Dereliction and revolves around dealing high raw damage. Aside from Dereliction, this build uses Attack Boost, Critical Boost, Critical Eye, Weakness Exploit, and a point in Chain Crit to improve its raw damage output. For utility, the build also runs maxed Speed Sharpening, Wirebug Whisperer, and a point in Evade Extender.
When using this build, always swap to your Blue Scroll when the hunt begins as Dereliction will only provide increased attack and stun potency when on the Blue Scroll.
In addition, to help mitigate the health drain from Dereliction, we recommend eating Gourmet Fish and the Hide-and-Seek Dango as they both provide health regeneration over time.

Rampage Skill Teostra Soul
Build Merits A raw hammer build with a tinge of blast for Sunbreak's mid stages of master rank! Magnamalo Hammer has a higher raw base than other weapons with a few exception while retaining a high level of Sharpness. Coupled with the blast skills and the Teostra Soul and its damage output turns out higher than other hammer weapons at this stage of the game. Take note that even though we slotted in some blast skills, the main focus of the build is still dealing raw damage and the blast component is just a bonus. If you're still in the earlier stages of MR 3-6, we highly recommend the Nargacuga Hammer Endless Eternia as it provides high affinity which allows you to reach high damage output even without the armor list and weapons provided!
