How Status Works: Definitive Status Guide

Sorry for the reupload, we had to correct some information in the video. The Pinned comment has the TL;DR changes if you watched the previous version. So here is EVERYTHING about how status mechanics work, how strong each status is, why later statuses are harder to proc, and basically everything about status in MHW and MHW Iceborne.

We cover all the general mechanics as well as the unique quirks of blast, paralysis, sleep, poison, KO, Exhaust, and Mounting in Monster Hunter World as well as the changes in Monster Hunter World Iceborne.

All Rajang Weapons, Armor, & Fight Review

Rajang came out! He’s a very fun fight but also how do the Rajang Weapons and Armor affect the current META in MHW Iceborne?

We also cover how to get the Rarity 12 Rajang Weapons in Monster Hunter World Iceborne.

The Rajang Weapons are definitely a top tier option, easily top 4 in the game for raw weapons, but lets crunch some math and figure out if they are the META Raw weapons or not.

The Rajang Armor is an interesting addition and we have a few potentially strong builds using them!

Mantle Decos change A LOT. Best Mantles Math in MHW Iceborne

The deco slots in your mantles in MHW Iceborne changes A LOT. Infact one mantle is now VERY strong thanks to the addition of the deco slots.

For the longest time in Monster Hunter world evasion mantle, rocksteady mantle, impact mantle, and temporal mantle were by far the go to mantles.
But in Monster Hunter World Iceborne there is a new contender that can potentially completely change your mantle loadout.

DEFENSE BOOST IS A TRAP! Defense Math

So why is Defense Boost a TRAP? Not because its a defensive skill, defensive skills are fine. It’s because its a BAD DEFENSIVE SKILL.

This is the case in MHW Iceborne AND Base MHW.

There are so many better defensive armor skills in Monster Hunter World Iceborne to use than Defense Boost 7. Its just hugely inefficient return on investment, for the same amount of skill investment you can get 3-5 times the defensive value.

2’18 Tigrex Wild Swings Only Meme Run+Analysis

So Wild Swings are very strong after the buffs in MHW Iceborne. So here’s a helicopter run with Switch Axes that never stop wild swinging.

We’re also going to do a full analysis of the process and decision making that went into the run 😀

Now Wild Swings are not as strong as sword mode, but very strong for axe mode in Monster Hunter World Iceborne. Arguably the strongest loopable switch axe combo on axe mode, but more on that in tomorrow’s video about Power Axe Combos for SA.

While this is definitely a fun meme run and 2’18 is a pretty decent time, this is not a speedrun. We aren’t really speedrunners anymore and this run could easily have been 25-35 seconds shorter if we really wanted to refine it and reset a LOT more.

But we only had 2.5 hours to get the run down and this was our Personal Best.

A huge thank you to Tony and Icon for joining us in this run!
They’re old friends of ours and it was really nice to hunt with them again 😀
