Mhw healer build
When it comes to successfully slaying the creatures of Monster Hunter: Worldpreparation is key. These decisions might not seem all that important to begin with, but your loadout will become much more important after you defeat the final monster and unlock the wealth of extra content in the end game.
Try to think of them as a template that highlights a specific niche role or strength that you can take advantage of when playing with your own weapon of choice. The Sword and Shield commonly referred to as the SnS paints itself as a fairly vanilla weapon, but the reality is that this mundane looking combo brings a fairly powerful niche to the monster slaying table.
The SnS is also the only weapon that allows you to use consumables while having your weapon drawn, so there are a few popular builds that take advantage of this combined with the Wide Range skill to run a team-wide support build for multiplayer sessions.HEALER BUILD - Sword and Shield HEALER vs Behemoth - Monster Hunter World
Thanks to the maxed out Wide Range and Speed Eating skills, with this setup we can hope to achieve a fairly effective build that revolves around using consumables to help buff and heal you and your team members, keeping everyone healthy and in the fight for as long as possible. This build also boasts a decent chance to apply paralysis to monsters too thanks to the Free Elem skill from the chest and legs, which is then also boosted by the Immobilize charm.
The meaty blade of the Monster Hunter series, Greatswords are slow but powerful with their large sweeping strikes and long windup attacks. Many people prefer to focus on dealing damage over anything else with this behemoth of a blade, which is understandable given how much damage each strike can dish out, and with a little tweaking those numbers can easily be pushed above and beyond standard limits.
The overall gist of this set is all about dishing out high numbers consistently, which is why we see boosts to critical damage here and there. We also see some quality of life improvements with the aid of Speed Eating and Sheath, since time spent healing is time you could be spending hitting the monster.
Sitting somewhere between the rapid speed of the Dual Blades and the long windups of the Greatsword, the Longsword predominantly serves as a damage dealing weapon with a reliable attack pattern causing a moderate amount of damage. Along with the typical focus on cranking up the numbers when it comes to damage output, the Longsword is great for getting those important tail slices, and as such is usually expected to focus on the back end of most monsters where possible.
Thanks to the Nergigante set bonus, you also get Hasten Recovery which will help to keep your health topped up as your continue to attack your enemy. The aim of the game for Lance users is almost always focused on defense. We also get the important Uragaan set bonus Guard Up, which allows you to to block unblockable attacks. The Gunlance tows the line between damage and defense, often allowing for some impressive feats for those willing to wrap their head around its complex system of blasts and shells.
Not only does this give you both set bonuses from the Odogaron armor, helping to extend sharpness while also giving you stun on the first attack after unsheathing, this set also works to amplify the poison attributes of the Royal Burst Rathalos weapon. The important thing to understand about IG is that it is one of the most modular and flexible weapons out there, offering you a number of mix and match combinations between the glaive and the kinsect to help you pair specific elements and statuses to great effect.
Here we see a fairly basic build that centres on the Odogaron bonuses that help keep your sharpness up. My current weapon of choice, the Dual Blades are versatile and can be modified to fit a couple of specific but significant roles. Thanks to their incredibly fast attack speed, Dual Blades are ideal candidates for applying status effects to monsters.
Since Dual Blades hit quite regularly, maintaining your sharpness is key. Thankfully this set generates an innate Handicraft skill of five without the aid of any extra decorations. The other significant bonus about this setup is that you unlock the Critical Element skill from the Rathalos armor set, which will augment your elemental damage whenever you land a critical hit.
Since the goal of this build is to apply and ramp up elemental attacks, the ideal decorations to fill those empty slots would be things like an Expert or Critical Boost Jewel which will only serve to amplify those critical damage spikes. These cumbersome mallets may not hit as hard as their similarly large counterparts, but they serve an important role when it comes to locking down large monsters.
Since hammers deal blunt damage, they possess the unique ability to cause the stun effect when attacking a monsters head, which can help you keep it in place for extended periods.
The focus with this setup is to maximize raw attack damage the damage you do with the help of Agitator, increasing your damage when enemies enrage, on top of the extra damage from the Attack Boost skill too. In an ideal world you would want to slot in an Elementless Jewel 2 into the Diablos hammer too, but the base set will perform modestly until you manage to unearth one. If you find that monster roars are getting in the way of your assault then it could also be worthwhile to sacrifice some damage or utility in favor of an Earplugs Jewel 3 slotted into either the helmet or chest.
It comes with a number of gauges and functions, allowing you to store damage and unleash it at will, while also offering a number of technical abilities like point guards with the shield and the devastating Super Amped Elemental Discharge.
With that said, this gear offers some great boosts to the Attack and Weakness Exploit skills, which will help you make the most of the those large SAED strikes. The Switch Axe is another morphing weapon that can be altered at will to change your playstyle for the situation at hand. Here we see an innate maximized level five Handicraft skill, combined with the a few levels of Weakness Exploit, Attack up and Stamina Surge. We also get a couple of levels in the Agitator skill, which will help to bump up your damage slightly whenever a monster enrages, which happens quite frequently when hunting higher-tier monsters.
Probably the most common of the ranged weapons, the Bow allows for high mobility and middling damage at the expense of fire rate. If the Light and Heavy bowguns sit at either ends of the spectrum when it comes to damage versus speed, then the bow sits somewhere in the middle.
In Monster Hunter: World bows can fulfil a number of roles, and it will ultimately depend on whether or not you want to focus on dishing out damage or doing something more technical and precise by applying statuses or aiming for hard to reach breakable areas like horns.
This set is inspired by the armor build originally shared by FightinCowboy on Youtube. Nargacuga loadout maximize the evasion with Evade Window, enabling you to dodge monster's attack easily. Even when you get hit, Health Boost and Divine Blessing will help you out. Kadachi Vipertail II has high paralysis damage which is very helpful both solo and multi play. This build compliments the short purple sharpness of Infinite Wisdom by Razor Sharp.
Health Boost and Power Prolonger increase your chance of survival. This build will bring out one of the hardest hitters in the Insect Glaive weapon category. This build will deal over damage due to the skills such as non-elemental boost.
This also has a high Handicraft skill level meaning that it has a white sharpness gauge. The Protective Polish was also added to keep the Insect Glaive's sharpness from deteriorating over a certain time period. This way, it can maintain its white sharpness for longer. Highly specialized equipment that is effective in dealing with Teostra due to its fire resistance capabilities.
Due to the Lvl 7 Critical Eye, this build shines the brightest when you crit on your attacks. Pairing this skill with Weakness Exploit will allow you to deal massive amounts of damage when aiming for monster weak spots.
The Grunge Storm is the star of this build as it boasts one of the highest attack powers of the Insect Glaives. With the Kjarr Glaive "Paralysis" equipped, you will be able to deal high amounts of damage while also having a high chance of paralyzing a monster! With the Critical Status skill equipped, the chances of applying a paralysis are very high! Take advantage of this during long drawn out battles to mount the monster more often!

The guide is made to be easily digestible for people starting with zero experience with Charge Blade, but also contains info up to techniques that even advanced players may not know.
The Highest Damage Hammer Builds
All of the builds on this page are geared toward maximizing offense rather than defense. There are a few reasons for this. More damage equals shorter fights, which means less time for the monster to attack you, less time chasing the monster to other areas, less time for your stamina to deteriorate, less time recharging your shield, etc. Also, more damage means the monster will flinch and topple more frequently, meaning even more openings for damage and even less time where the monster is attacking you.
Two exceptions are Guard and Health Augment, but Guard is not strictly a defensive skill as it can give you more openings to counter monster attacks and Health Augment is just too convenient.
If you find yourself fainting too much with these builds, feel free to substitute some Attack, Critical Eye, or Offensive Guard for Health Boost and Fortify as they are the most slot efficient defensive skills. Except for progression CBs, these are ranked from strongest to weakest. However, depending on events available at the time you may need to settle for something other than the strongest one.
Lightbreak Charge Blade Raging Brachydios tree 3. Glavenus Bardred Glavenus tree. Deep Terroir II Jyuratodus tree. Demonlord Blade Furious Rajang tree 4. Deep Schnegel II Beotodus tree. Deathaxe Vaal Aspida Vaal Hazak tree.

However, it may be too overwhelming for players until they get at least a few augments and better decorations especially Health augment. Note that builds are more or less sorted from strongest to weakest. However, the strongest builds usually require event equipment. Thanks to CurrySama for the improved G1 builds.
