MHW: Drachen Longsword Builds

MHW: Drachen Longsword Builds

Last updated on October 21st, 2018

New events in Monster Hunter World have allowed for some upgrading of previous end-game builds. This article will give you an idea for powerful Long Sword builds that are fun and effective. The MHW x FFXIV crossover event and update brought the Drachen Armor α which I will focus on in these builds.

MHW: Drachen Longsword Builds

Before we had Kulve Taroth, Dante, and Arch Temp Vaal, most of the end game armor was Death Stench, Dober, Dragonking Eyepatch, Kushala, and Nergigante. Most armor sets used the handicraft charm to raise sharpness to white. Now we have more options to customize builds, below are some examples. These are a bit more reliant on decorations than my other Longswords build, so if you can’t make these check out the previous iterations.
