The Best Raw Lance Builds: MHW Iceborne Meta Sets

The Patrons have spoken and Lance is the next META sets to be covered. Lance uses Raw, Elemental, and Status very well in MHW Iceborne so this will be a full series with a video covering each.

The META is MHW Iceborne is a lot more complex and nuanced than in the base game. Differences in damage amongst top contenders are within the single percents of damage and it’s a pretty great time over all.

Raw Lance works amazingly as a catch all build choice in Monster Hunter World Iceborne. But unlike in base Monster Hunter World, it is not the end all be all best damage option.
Elemental and Status both can beat these sets given the right conditions.
But they are so close that we end up with many viable options for optimal damage.

No But seriously, the Gold Rathian weapons are stupidly overtuned in MHW Iceborne. We’ve been saying this since Day 3 of the game coming out but let’s actually do a full analysis on why this is the case.

Sorry for the reupload, we had to fix the multiplayer poison numbers. Added a TL;DR at the start of the video on the changes.

We cover all the intricacies and quirks of poison in Monster Hunter World as well as discuss exactly how we math out the effectiveness of poison as a damage source in poison builds in MHW.

BE. NICE. Our Philosophy on Elitism & Toxicity

Seriously. Be. Nice. We’ve heard a lot about toxicity and elitism in the community and we want to make very clear our stance on the issue.

We don’t make META Set videos to tell you that you HAVE to use the builds, we make them to have factual info out there.

Monster Hunter World Iceborne is a game. Play it how you want and let others play it how they want.
We just want to make sure that if you do want to play full damage in MHW Iceborne that you know what sets are mathematically optimal for that.
That’s the entire point of the META series, not to tell anyone how you should be playing the game.
