MHW: Dragon Longsword Build

MHW: Dragon Longsword Build

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 a powerful Long Sword Dragon build that is fun and effective. The Devil May Cry event brought a mix and match Dante Armor Set, the second Spring Update brought the Kulve Taroth α and β Armor Set, and Arch Tempered Vaal Hazak brought the Vaal Hazak Braces γ.

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 a build, below is one example.

Build’s Name

Devour Me Mami


Reaver “Calamity”


  • Slot in Attack Boost on your Helmet
  • Slot in Crit Boost and Weakness Exploit on your Gauntlets
  • Slot in Protective Polish on your Waist
  • Slot in Critical Eye on Chest and Leggings. (If players have attack gems, they can be substituted for critical eye.)

This build’s framework borrows from Raw DPS Build and tailors it. You may also like to see this Elemental Crit Build For Sealed Weapons.
