Monster Hunter World: Augments and You

It’s time again to dive into yet another semi-secret mechanic of Monster Hunter World. Today we will be talking about augmentations for weapons. In order to augment, players must acquire a Warrior or Hero Streamstone from tempered Elder Dragon quests. Hunters have a 12% chance to obtain a Warrior Streamstone and a 3% chance to obtain a Hero Streamstone.

Ultimately, whether players choose attack or affinity, the difference between them is barely noticeable. Dibsville, a member of Fextra community, has made an excel sheet where players can see the difference between attack and affinity augments.
