There is not enough data in the beta to say with her confidence that one weapon is superior to the rest. I feel safer playing a longsword against an enemy I am not familar with instead of playing a charge blade and be like "is that the opening for SAED? And since they made the animations flow much more fluid, it feels so much smoother than MHXX. In MHW, the best Charge Blade can be tricky to choose. yes you're vulnerable mid air spirit trust, but the move is used when you have an opening. I would argue the Beta is not fully indicative of the final product. 0 points1 point2 points 2 years ago (2 children). Hence its popularity. That’s because SAED spam is OP. This website has records for various quests, though it's in Japanese. I’ve been using whatever I like like affinity V, element build up V, and extra slot. In 4U you lose the red shield after an ultra, but in world you keep it. Anyways, i've seen those polls and it has now affected my decision by not choosing CB when I'll do my playthrough. Lance is always unpopular to the general populous. I main LS and I have to disagree with longsword comparison and the other weapons that I dont main. My theory is that the power gamers prefer CB and they're over-represented on reddit. [–]Kougeru 2 points3 points4 points 2 years ago (0 children). I mean, my two main weapons are gunlance and HBG. Can someone please tell me that is in World? Cutting tails, stunning heads, fast medium-weight hits n sword mode, slow heavy hits in axe mode, unbounceable special attacks, a strong block shield but it can still roll normally and has decently fast walk speed while unsheathed, works well with high-raw weapons but also works well with elements or status. It just feels so good when you finally get it and once you learn a monsters attacks and get GPs off them. I am a melee weapon type of RPGist, straight in the face fighting you. Iceborne Charge Blades are Master Rank Charge Blades in Monster Hunter World Iceborne (MHW). Self-Promotion posts are allowed on a 1:5 ratio basis The defense is correct; S&S has the weakest shield you can get. If you want to compare it's power to other weapons, it boils down to how fast it can take out a monster, aka solo speed kill times. I might argue that SA has the best finisher now, but yeah, CB does feel a bit over tuned compared to many other weapons. I'm the kind of guy that use LongSword as if i'm playing Phantasy Star Online. True, to an extent. Your source is not comprehensive compared to my source. [–][deleted] 1 point2 points3 points 2 years ago (4 children), Yeah cb is insanely boring for me. Let me put it in a way new players can understand. I friggin love this weapon and I try to use it whenever I can, [–]MonHunt007 0 points1 point2 points 2 years ago (0 children), Played charge blade in MH4U and it was my main weapon. Personally, I still suck with it for the most part but I wish I didn’t! Gonna use blast charge blade but have no idea what awakened abilities to use? Flourish does! Arch Tempered Nergigante's Nergigante Gamma Armor has given Impact Phial Charge Blade Builds a big buff. If warnings are not heeded, further action by moderation team will be taken. Charge Blade Weapon Tree for Monster Hunter World (MHW) Iceborne showcases the different upgrade paths for the Charge Blade weapon category. So yeah, you can say it's THE MOST COMPLICATED simply because it has the biggest movepool and it takes more time to go through it all, but I wouldn't say it's hard. Where are the record charts for Jargras, Barroth, Anju, Rathalos and Diablos? Depending on the type of phial the weapon has, you can KO with it's phial burst attacks. Use your surroundings. use the following search parameters to narrow your results: Submissions must be directly relevant to Monster Hunter [–]filthyrotten 5 points6 points7 points 2 years ago (3 children). This allows you to straight up ignore hardened monster parts as you charge for SAED. It has both fast and quick moves to fit between the monster's attacks, but when it's down you can change to a very slow and strong axe with huge burst damage. [–]whur 7 points8 points9 points 2 years ago (0 children). Here is the solo speedrun record against Nergigante in MHW Beta: link. At a baseline it has far more mechanics than most weapons. Mechanically, and how the weapon is played, I still think has less mechanics than Charge Blade. [–]MyCoolYoungHistory 0 points1 point2 points 2 years ago (0 children). [–]LickMiPls 0 points1 point2 points 2 years ago (1 child). It's too strong, [–]Bladeviper 6 points7 points8 points 2 years ago (3 children), it gets whatever the element/status of the cb is i think, at least the one in the beta gets ko damage on the sword when you charge it, [–]GlitchyNinja 2 points3 points4 points 2 years ago (2 children). Alright here is the #1 run for Rathalos : Using speedruns to determine a weapons strength is kind of weak, don’t you agree? Moderators reserve the right to manually approve/disprove posts based on how it affects the quality or state of the sub. "The monster has a move that's almost impossible to avoid, and it's 1HKO". Double Notes do not, though. Don't ask me how Also, CB guhd. I'm not gonna disagree that CB is a fun and versatile weapon, but your notion that it's OP seem to be more of an issue on your end. The positive is that you are almost always guaranteed big dick damage. Its ok, I think the more the merrier and it can only strenghen the chances of more in the series which is a good thing. [–]Bladeviper 0 points1 point2 points 2 years ago (1 child), when you charge the sword it goes extra damage based on whatever the status/element of the weapon is. Assuming that element phials charge blade makes a return or focus skill (allows you to charge up your phials faster). When I discuss the OPness of a weapon, I am specifically talking about the power level (measured in dps) of that weapon at the highest level of play available against the strongest monster available. A weapon being OP also means that everyone can pick up that weapon and get similar results which is simply not true for the CB. It's considered op because it's a cutting weapon that can ko monsters, can have its shield charge and guard points to survive deadly hits, and in World charging your sword gives you esp which means your weapon won't bounce off of hard parts. Very little skill for high damage award goes to SA and HBG. Plus the meta of spamming ultra without using red shield could be extremely effective in the main game. When the Switch Axe came out in MH3 i was really excited to see a transforming weapon with two modes and new gimmicks.

[–]PM_Me_An_EkansI switch my main weapon like every week 5 points6 points7 points 2 years ago (1 child). -(a) Artist’s name in the title; Others may have a higher sustained dps but the charge blade has the strongest single damage move in the game coupled with a hyper armor shield. Combine this with Guard Skills for a GP-heavy playstyle. You're not optimizing the damage output properly. This weapon is somewhat similar to the Switch Axe, with the ability to switch between two different weapon modes: the Sword Mode and the Axe Mode. I mean, I agree with you. At first I thought I was exaggerating most of them, but I'm fairly sure the way i explained them is the optimal way to play them in a vaccuum. [–]MyLoveHammerGS on the streets, SA in the sheets 8 points9 points10 points 2 years ago (0 children). This is the first time I have tried it and instantly loved it. i7 4960k - msi gtx 970 - z97x gaming 7- vengeance 16gb 1600 - ssd 850 pro 256gb - wd 2tb black - These are just a few examples but even these alone make CBs are a very strong weapon to play. [–]Brokengamer10 8 points9 points10 points 2 years ago (0 children). I was conflicted writing this, because as you rightly pointed out, some of the weapons are basically on par, but playing with the CB, I can't shake the feeling that it was a latecomer. Rathalos and Diablos are already too easy. Make switchaxe and hunting horn a bit more appealing and I am fine with the rest. You know what's different in world? I was crazy for it when they launched 4U. The top 14 runs using HBG and LBG all exploit torch pods. I am personally trying to decide between about 7 weapons that I liked (including the CB). [–]Navi_1er 2 points3 points4 points 2 years ago (0 children). It's monster-agnostic, and disgustingly powerful for how easy it is to do. Never played a full release of the game, and never really liked the charge blade in the beta (That thing is so complex it makes my head spin), but I'd imagine the reason people love the Charge Blade is because of it's flexibility, high damage spikes, deliciously fluid combos, and the fact that it just straight up looks badass when played well. I'm addicted now, and it's my go to for ancient leshen since I end up sheathed building levels and that leaves me an opening to use slingers/items. [–]KoheezyGuard Point that's why 0 points1 point2 points 2 years ago (0 children). The sliding roundhouse slash makes it even more agile. Artwork submissions must adhere to the following criteria: Is the double charging thing true? Even I'm a Longsword main and have been since MHF2 but I have to switch it up every now and then. I clicked on the link expecting actual usage metrics pulled from Capcom. yeah the mhgu/XX charge blade playstyle is way more versatile and is way way less just spamikg the SAED its about beimg flouid nd chaning togther imcreadible axe chops and fluently switching bsck to sword and there getting your phials again just by being smooth af. Rage/Complaint posts belong in /r/monsterhunterrage. I'm well aware of what the moves' names are.

[–]anti_vist 0 points1 point2 points 2 years ago (0 children). Steven Strom January 15, 2020. The meters aren't much more complicated than the LS either. Its a very versatile weapon that adapt to alot of situation while also being a huge powerhouse with the "elemental discharges". [–]BirkaiQutuz 0 points1 point2 points 2 years ago (1 child), You're right. First time I saw it in action I was like yep, I’m gonna learn how to use this thing. [+]code_isLife comment score below threshold-11 points-10 points-9 points 2 years ago (11 children). I guess the crux of it would be it's versatility. I can guard reactively between most of my attacks, [–]Gycepros 0 points1 point2 points 2 years ago (0 children). To compare, we'll use MHW's most popular weapon the LS. We did not have access to optimised gear and we could only fight a select few monsters. [–]jotavee 0 points1 point2 points 2 years ago (2 children). This is why I consider your source not legitimate. I like the weapon but I dont want to sit on a hub filled with carche blade and while every weapon is very balance and you can play with any weapon everyone will just follow the bandwagon. So you pretty much gain a perfect shield followed by the strongest move in the game. Incorrect: IFrames are a defense. I still overall standby how i referred to the rest of the weapons. If the monster does more than 1 attack in a row, or it's just an attack that hits multiple times, FS will not protect you. [–]TLSMFH 2 points3 points4 points 2 years ago (1 child). To really love CB you have to be very knowlegable about its moveset, blocking, and charging complexities. I realize we are discussing MHW, the reason I linked the records for MH4G AND MHXX was because there is more data to work with. I think I'll probably end up starting off with the Lance first but I did enjoy CB, Hammer, Hunting Horn, Funlance and LBG a lot as well so I'll be experimenting early until I figure out which I'm enjoying the most. Too OP, and because I fell in love for the LS stylish movements. Especially for monsters like rathalos that fly after a roar, you can foresight the roar > Spirit roundhouse > auto sheath > flash.

I can easily apply status effects, like paralyze is my go to favorite. It can KO the monster. Thats 4U CB not World CB.

I tend to prefer smoother/lighter weapons like IG or LS. I loooove SnS, but i hate how "button-mashy" the weapon is. This website has records for various quests. After you get red shield, you can spam SAED after SAED without having to charge the shiled again, and with a sword that can KO. If you tried CB in MHGU for example, CB SAED is nothing to write home about. The only way to fix this mess is for Capcom to once again cause SAED to either lose all shield charge, or consume a huge chunk of its available time. It actually has the biggest move pool in the game, each form is like it's own thing and they connect beautifully.

When you use a move in the room, it'll tell you that moves name and it is called "Super Amped Elemental Discharge". I might go back to maining it for MHW. It has too much damage for its amount of safety and utility. Players tend to love its versatility (I wonder why...) or hate it for the written reasons. No. Search before posting This page is a collection of armor sets including decorations for Charge Blade in MHW Iceborne. Have you used CBs in the Training Room? [–]ds2_birdie 0 points1 point2 points 2 years ago (0 children). But does it even Increase your damage? The negatives you list are pretty overblown, with most of them either not mattering in the long run or can be remedied in some fashion.
