Monster Hunter Rise Bludgeoner Notes & Trivia

Is Bludgeoner good in MHR?

  • There are a few viable builds that use Bludgeoner in base Monster Hunter Rise, however in the Sunbreak Expansion, Bludgeoner loses it's effectiveness. With the exception of Valstrax tree weapons, melee Weapons in base Rise only go up to Blue Sharpness. This makes it easier to go down to Green sharpness to proc level 3 Bludgeoner, and the Attack Power provided by Bludgeoner offsets a lot of the drop from Blue to Green sharpness, especially on Weapons with high raw attack, such as Hammers. In Sunbreak, Weapons can go up to Purple sharpness, making it harder to proc Bludgeoner, and the Attack Power provided by the skill does not offset the large damage multipliers provided by White and Purple sharpness. In addition, Master Rank Monsters introduced in Sunbreak will often have thicker hides that result in attacks from Weapons in Green sharpness or lower to bounce off.

      Only useful in low rank and early high rank when most weapons only have yellow and green sharpness. At the end of high rank almost every weapon in the game has blue or white sharpness. You will also need mind's eye to stop from bouncing.

      Only weapon bludgeoner is somewhat viable on is the ninja sword because it has a lot of green sharpness and 100% affinity. The reason bludgeoner works on the ninja sword is because with 100% affinity master's touch will keep the sword at green sharpness the entire hunt and crit boost will always be active.

      Completely useless in master/g rank were everything except a few weapons has white or purple sharpness by default and curious weapon and armor crafting can be used to get handicraft. If it went up to blue then it might be usable on garongolemn weapons or the hi-ninja sword.

      • Do we know where in a damage formula this is calculated? If it only applies to base attack then this is meh, but if it applies to total damage *after* other mechanics are accounted for (sharpness multiplier, affinity 1.25 multiplier, etc) then this could be really strong.
