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 DPS build that is fun and effective. The Devil May Cry event brought a mix and match Dante Armor Set and the second Spring Update brought the Kulve Taroth α and β Armor Set.
Before we had Kulve Taroth and Dante, 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.
