Monster Hunter Rise Dragon Element Notes & Trivia

Is Dragon Element good in MHR?

  • Dragon Element is most effective when used against monsters weak against the element. It may not be the most general-use element though as not many monsters have it as a weakness. Nevertheless, there are a few Large Monsters that have it as one of their main weakness, such as Rathalos, Rathian, and Gaismagorm. On top of this, Weapons under the Valstrax tree are Dragon Element and boast some of the best stats when compared to weapons of other trees, making it great for general use. Elemental Damage, such as Dragon Element, is best used by fast attacking weapons such as the Dual Blades and Sword and Shield. If you want to boost your Dragon Element damage, consider slotting in Skills that affect Elemental Damage like Burst, Dragon Conversion, and Critical Element. Skills that can boost Dragon Element specifically include Dragon Attack and Dragonheart.
