What’s the HIGHEST DAMAGE NUMBER on the pole?

So let’s talk about the Raw Attack Cap mechanic in MHW Iceborne and how it limits the highest possible damage number you can get.

The Raw Damage Cap in Monster Hunter World Iceborne suffered a really strong nerf from the raw cap of 3x your base raw in Monster Hunter World to only 2x your base raw. This makes the raw cap VERY achievable in normal hunts and means you have to consider it in a lot of builds now.

It especially makes Artillery 5 and airborne very questionably useful. If these armor skills are stacked with much else you’ll hit the Raw Cap very quickly.

If you’re looking for the highest damage weapon for your comfy sets, the gold rathian weapons have you covered. They are obscenely overtuned and get everything good a weapon could want in Monster Hunter World Iceborne.

Whether for META sets, for comfy DPS sets, for defensive sets, or anything in between these weapons end up being the best to run in Iceborne.

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