Basically you trade 10% affinity for 8(+4 +2 +2) more damage per shot when not critting and 12(+6 +3 +3) when critting. So overall ends up being more worth it.!br 2 free fire resistance is a nice bonus. !br Use Tobi lbg set from the old video if you don’t have R8 Pierce.@

No way to fit bombardier 3 without ditching something else like a thunder attack. CE 2 isn’t worth dropping the 2 bombardier unless you literally never use bombs. !br Fire Res 2 is a nice bonus@
Thunder Bow Cons 1
https://honeyhunterworld.com/mhwb/?312,99,62,86,60,86,76,aff,0,0,84,0,0,35,30,0,58,0,0,10,10,0,64,0,0,10,9,0,2@Post KT P1-P3@Thunder bow set Con 1. If you eat for felyne blackbelt and use dash juice this build hits 45% stamina use reduction, which caps at 50 so it’s pretty much the same as cons 3 sets + dash juice gameplay wise. !br Gains 2 lvl 1 slots, so bombardier lvl 3 and whatever 1 lvl 1 slot you want.@
https://honeyhunterworld.com/mhwb/?68,110,60,62,97,76,76,aff,aff,health,71,0,0,19,10,0,10,0,0,75,0,0,90,10,0,9,9,0,2@Post KT P1-P3@DDs thunder DBs. Basically KT armor got it a point of agitator and handi which is pretty nice. Compared to Kirin DBs:!br DDs are slightly better when running no bombardier(add 3 crit eye) !br Kirin DBs are slightly better when running bombardier !br Kirin DBs are in the previous videos, sets didn’t change.@
DD 1 CB build
https://honeyhunterworld.com/mhwb/?68,67,60,80,97,86,76,aff,aff,health,19,0,0,30,10,0,10,0,0,44,0,0,75,10,0,9,9,0,2@Post KT P1-P3@Alternate DD Thunder DBs set. Has crit boost instead of 1 handi + 1 agi which makes it deal a teensy bit more damage. !br Personally I’d go with the more Handi version, but this is the MAX DEEPs version.@
https://honeyhunterworld.com/mhwb/?561,84,60,62,97,86,76,health,0,0,75,0,0,10,10,0,10,0,0,19,0,0,90,9,0,9,9,0,2@Post KT P1-P3@SA is the only other weapon to have a better option than Jho AFAIK. !br Hits about 20% harder than jho SA in sword mode, pretty juicy. !br Other weapons though have shit Thunder options so jho is the go to for them, those sets are next.
https://honeyhunterworld.com/mhwb/?65,95,99,80,66,76,83,aff,health,0,0,0,0,19,0,0,75,30,0,16,0,0,19,10,0,10,10,0,2@Post KT P1-P3@Template Jho set for Clothed KT. Gained 1 lvl 1 slot from KT gear XD !br Use this on pretty much every other melee weapon that isn’t DBs. If using GS, still use the Gas Powered Stick but switch the polish deco to a NEB deco. !br Switch bombardier decos to AB if not using bombs. Use 4 expert decos if you don’t have 4 AB decos, AB is only worth more if you hit lvl 4.@
https://honeyhunterworld.com/mhwb/?187,84,99,80,76,76,74,aff,health,0,0,0,0,10,10,0,75,10,0,16,0,0,57,0,0,5,5,0,2@Post KT P4@Template Jho Bombardier set for Nekked KT. !br If you don’t have 2 AB decos, switch coil to odogaron and throw in 2 expert decos. AB is only worth it if you hit AB 4. !br Again, use this on every melee that isn’t DBs. GS same deal, use the Gas Powered Stick but change polish deco to a NEB deco.@
https://honeyhunterworld.com/mhwb/?187,95,99,80,76,76,83,aff,health,0,0,0,0,75,0,0,16,5,0,16,0,0,57,0,0,5,5,0,2@Post KT P4@Template Jho no bombardier build for Nekked KT. !br Also happens to be the new Jho META set for PC. Same thing as above, if you don’t have enough AB decos just switch coil to Odo Coil and use expert decos instead. CE 5 is better than AB 4 or lower for this build.@
https://honeyhunterworld.com/mhwb/?361,67,60,99,97,76,62,aff,0,0,71,0,0,30,30,0,30,0,0,75,30,0,90,38,0,38,38,0,3@Post KT P4@KT Ice DBs build. Juicy damage on this one in fact best DPS option vs KT, but best to run it with a CC hunter bc RIP hitting horns on DBs otherwise XD !br Switch charm for masters charm if you don’t run bombs. But you seriously should in area 4, its a lot of free damage on sleeps and mounts.@
https://honeyhunterworld.com/mhwb/?361,67,99,62,97,86,74,aff,0,0,44,0,0,10,10,0,90,10,0,75,0,0,16,38,0,38,38,0,2@Post KT P4@KT Ice DBs build with Affinity booster. I included an Affinity booster build bc DBs generally pair with CC chains since they can’t hit horns well otherwise. During CC chains you should have an affinity booster. !br Gains 2 CB out of dropping the crit eye. Pretty nice.@
https://honeyhunterworld.com/mhwb/?275,88,99,62,80,60,59,aff,0,0,0,0,0,30,30,30,84,10,0,58,0,0,10,10,0,35,0,0,3@Post KT P4@Ice Bow set. Compared to the old set, it trades 1 CE for 1 Ice because I realized that was actually better. And it gains 1 critboost, which I’m pretty sure doesn’t even gain you 1 more damage per arrow. !br Sub in expert decos for bombardier decos if not using bombs but again, it is strongly recommended you do use bombs in Area 4. Especially since you have sleep+ coatings on the legi bow.@
https://honeyhunterworld.com/mhwb/?275,88,22,62,60,70,48,aff,0,0,0,0,0,30,30,10,38,38,0,58,0,0,84,0,0,35,0,0,3@Post KT P4@Ice bow Cons 1 build. SAme as thunder bow, hits 45%/50% stamina use reduction if you eat for felyne blackbelt and use dash juice. Which makes it play pretty much the same as a cons 3 set. !br You gain 2 crit eye which is pretty worth trading for a voucher.@
https://honeyhunterworld.com/mhwb/?613,88,62,60,56,86,62,aff,0,0,57,0,0,30,30,30,57,0,0,38,0,0,57,0,0,94,94,0,3,Recoil,Recoil,Recoil@Post KT P4@KT Spread Ice set. Despite it’s name, the KT Spread is a terrible spread lbg. Best Ice lbg atm though. !br Set didn’t change from Pre KT except now it has 2 free fire resist. If you don’t have spread, use Daora’s Hornet. Set is exactly the same except for Spread has 10 more tRaw. !br Again not the best option for a P1, but its a solid and safe option nonetheless.@

https://honeyhunterworld.com/mhwb/?275,88,64,66,70,70,59,aff,0,0,0,0,0,10,62,62,51,0,0,58,62,0,78,78,78,61,0,0,3@Post KT P4@Improved CC bow set.
It doesn’t actually gain anything from post KT. Other than me reinvestigating optimizing it and realizing you can fit 2 focus in there which is actually useful to CC bow XD.@
