MHW Builder: Icebronies edition BETA. Please read THIS before you start.

Category: Long Sword


I DON’T LIKE THIS. I was messing around with meme builds last night and discovered a Sleeper META Long Sword in MHW Iceborne.


Why Capcom. Why a Sleeper Zorah Long Sword META. Monster Hunter World Iceborne doesn’t deserve this.

Admittedly this is only POTENTIALLY a META option. We need actual play testing to determine if this can get enough blast procs in hunter to compete with the gold rathian long sword.

Either way, here is the META Long Sword build for the Znorah Magdaros Long Sword in MHW and a bunch of long sword math on how it compares to the best long sword build for the gold rathian long sword.

Hellish Slasher is NOT THAT GOOD

Let’s talk about Hellish Slasher. We’ve been hearing about how its the best Long Sword in MHW Iceborne and this is factually incorrect.
There are in fact 3 better longswords in Iceborne.
So let’s look at the math on what actually are the best long swords in Monster Hunter World Iceborne.

The Iceborne META Longsword Builds

These are all the Highest DPS Longsword Builds in MHW Iceborne from MR 23 all the way to MR 100+ End End game. And yes, these META Longsword builds give you plenty of ability to run utility and defensive skills like Health Boost.

And no. None of these include the Hellish Slasher. It’s not META and it’s not all that good either, it is at best the #4 Raw Long Sword in Iceborne.

We will have a video out tomorrow talking about this in more detail, but basically the Gold Rathian Longsword is better than the Ruiner Nerg Longsword and the Shara Longsword and these are both better than the Hellish Slasher.

Technically the Acid Glavenus Longsword is also better than the Hellish Slasher, but with 10 units of purple it’s unreasonably tight to make work so we exclude that.

Monster Hunter Math: Highest DPS Builds

Welcome to guide on how to make the highest damage builds in Monster Hunter World. This is the first in my Monster Hunter Math Series and will explain the importance of EFR or Effective Raw, which is what you look at when determining which build does the highest damage.

It is what speedrunners and optimizers like me look for when making builds. Out side of elemental weapons like bows and dual blades, but I will have a video in the near future on that topic.

If you’re wondering, how damage is calculated in Monster Hunter: World, be sure to check J&T’s guides to raw and elemental damage!
