Strife Skill Effects | Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak

This is a guide to the Strife Skill in Monster Hunter Rise (MH Rise): Sunbreak. Learn what the Strife Skill does at each level, which Armor and Decorations have this skill, and our builds that use Strife.

Strife Skill Effects

Skill Effect
Increases elemental attack and affinity in proportion to the length of your red health gauge.
Level Effect by Level
1 Increases attack power in accordance to gauge length.
2 Further increases attack power in accordance to gauge length.
3 Further increases attack power in accordance with gauge length. Max out attack for an infinite stamina effect.

Affinity and Element Increase Varies

The effect provided by Strife depends on how much red health gauge remains. Maximum effect is achieved as long as you're above 60% red health, and the effect diminishes a bit when going below it.

Level Max Effect
(above 60% gauge)
Reduced Effect
(below 60% gauge)
Lv 1 +10% +5%
Lv 2 +15% +10%
Lv 3 +20% w/ infinite stamina +15% element, +10% affinity w/o infinite stamina

Activated Only with Red Health

Like Resentment, Strife is only activated when you have red health. This can be paired with skills that apply self-damage such as Dereliction and Bloodlust.

Because Strife only gives its highest stat bonuses when 60% of red health, it is best paired with Berserk.
