This is a guide to the Frostcraft Skill in Monster Hunter Rise (MH Rise): Sunbreak. Learn what the Frostcraft Skill does at each level, which Armor and Decorations have this skill, and our builds that use Frostcraft.
|An aura of frost builds when your weapon is sheathed, raising attack. The effect decreases with each melee hit or shot/arrow fired.
|Effect by Level
|Extends the Frost Gauge.
|Extends the Frost Gauge even further.
YES. Frostcraft can be obtained as an extra skill on your armor when you try rolling for skills via Qurious Armor Crafting.
The Frostcraft gauge is next to your weapon's sharpness bar and is passively charged as long as you are not attacking.
While sheathed, the Frostcraft gauge will charge much faster.
It is advisable to use this skill in situations where your weapon is frequently sheathed. This can happen during repositioning or running around a monster.
Charge bar level 3 takes the longest to fill up. Charge bar level 4 is much quicker, being the 2nd fastest to fill next to the charge bar level 1.

Using Velkhana weapons increases the charge rate of the Frostcraft gauge.
If you have a build centered on Frostcraft, you may want to pair it with a Velkhana weapon!
|Overhead Slash (GS)
|If using Frostcraft Level 1, then the damage multiplier for 1 is 1.05x at the full first bar. No multiplier is applied if it is not used at full bar.
If using Frostcraft Level 2:
If Frostcraft Level 3 is slotted in:
This was tested with the Kamura Warrior Cleaver and Kamura Legacy Armor with Rimeguard Mail, Gloves, and Coil.
Each level of the Frostcraft gauge is a buff to your weapon's attack damage. The higher the level, the higher the buff.
Since every weapon fire or strike depletes the gauge, the buff will weaken unless you keep it within a level. Always remember that every shift in the level is a change in the strength of the buff.
There are two ways the gauge is depleted: when you strike a monster with a melee weapon, or when you fire a ranged weapon.
There is no risk to the gauge when you miss your weapon swing. But you will have to be more conservative in making shots with a ranged weapon such as a bowgun.
Weapons that deliver lots of damage in bursts, such as the Great Sword, will deplete more of the gauge. Meanwhile, weapons like the Dual Blades will deplete less, increasing the time of Frostcraft's attack buff applied in combos.
Use these to your advantage when making use of Frostcraft!
