This is a guide to Elemental Damage, a damage modifying stat in Monster Hunter World (MHW) Iceborne. Read on to learn about a Weapon's Elemental Damage, How to Increase it, and when to use which element.
List of Contents
Elemental Damage increases your damage against monsters that sports a weakness to the said element. Elemental power is additive so a weapon with low damage but high elemental damage can still do wonders against enemies that are weak to its element.
As opposed to popular belief, Elemental Attacks from your weapons do not inflict blight against monsters. Monsters cannot be afflicted with blights in Monster Hunter World.
Upon hitting an enemy, the damage you see is the total damage that comes from your raw attacks and elemental attacks.
If you have a fire weapon, equipping a fire element boost will increase your fire attacks further! This is the best way to increase your elemental damage.
Sets like the Velkhana Armor and the Silver Sol set increases your elemental attack's critical damage while the Namielle set increases your elemental damage itself. If you're wishing to increase your elemental damage, going for these armor sets is a must.
