MHW: Drachen Alpha Vs Kaiser Gamma Armor Sets

Last updated on October 21st, 2018

New events in Monster Hunter World have allowed for some upgrading of previous end-game builds. This guide will compare the Drachen Armor Set against the Kaiser Gamma Armor Set to show which one trumps which. I will build them centered around Affinity and Master’s Touch.

Conclusion

Drachen is the better armor set to craft if players can do so for longswords builds. If they can’t craft Drachen, then Kaiser γ is an option. Check out the alternative farming guide for Behemoth if players are having a rough time with multiplayer.

These builds evolved from the Raw DPS Build and Dragon LongSword Build. You may also like to see this Elemental Crit Build.
