Build Merits This build uses Bazel Valdi Rooksearer to deal high raw and Blast damage with the help of Dereliction. Aside from Dereliction, the build uses Attack Boost, Critical Boost, and a point in Chain Crit to increase the weapon's damage output. In addition, maxed Critical Eye, Weakness Exploit, and two points in Maximum Might allow the weapon to always critically hit on weakspots. To round out the build, it also features Speed Sharpening, Handicraft and a point in Protective Polish to help maintain purple sharpness during the hunt.
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 further 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.
To upgrade this build further, we recommend adding Attack Boost Augmentation to the weapon to improve overall damage output.
