4. Savage Axe Swing2Win Lightbreak Charge Blade Build

2nd Build

Some people prefer the Savage Axe mode over the Sword when using the Charge Blade. One appeal is the Savage Axe attacks unleashing high charged elemental/status energy that is filled and stored in phial’s from Sword attacks and releases the energy damage from Axe mode combat. Yea it's a charge up and release kinda thing. Nothing wrong with that everybody it’s totally natural. And with the Lightbreak Charge Blade, Teostra Technique and Brachydios Essence this build just can’t go wrong.

  • Heat Guard Skill Nullifies Damage From Heat

3. Savage Axe DPS Build True Fatalis Charger

3rd Build

Like the Savage Axe build before, this build also encourages Savage Axe mode over the Sword but with no SAED attacks. The armor and weapon is higher ranked and the elemental discharge attacks are strong but the raw attack damage from the Axe is just as strong if not stronger and takes less work to operate than keeping up with Monster Hunter: World’s extensive phial charging combat energy dispensing system or SAED attacks.. Just switch to Axe mode and keep on swinging that beautiful axe like 16th President Abraham Lincoln chopping wood in the forest, or I don’t know maybe killing vampires?
