Monster Hunter Rise Long Sword Build Guide

Monster Hunter Rise Long Sword Build Guide

Monster Hunter Rise builds include a mix of weapons, armor, charms, and other types of equipment. Monster Hunter Rise has many builds that allows you to adapt to and defeat a Monster. In this article we are going to cover the best builds for you, if you are a Long Sword type of player. 

Long Sword builds include a selection of popular and hand-crafted builds. These builds were based around specific Weapons. Each set includes Equip, Skills, and Decor. Combining these builds with specific Weapons with a set armor will optimize the combination and create a build type that focuses on the skills available with the chosen equipment.



The Long Sword has a fluid playstyle that allows the hunter and monster to deal damage continuously with minimal downtime between attacks. This is due to the Long Sword's array of counterattacks, which allow the hunter to dodge massive attacks from monsters and allows the hunter to smoothly transition between attack sequences. Because the Long Sword can string together attack sequences using counters, it is able to do fluid gameplay.

While most weapons must reset and reposition after an attack sequence is completed to avoid being struck by the monsters, the Long Sword can launch an attack sequence, stop any incoming attacks, and then immediately enter into the next attack sequence. This is why the Long Sword gains the greatest benefits from having skills that improve its combat fluidity and allow it the ability to deal continuous, unaffected damage.
