[MHWI Build] Power Element Charge Blade - Deep Schnegel II
Hey, how's your hunting? Last time, I've introduced HBG build to you.
This build requires 3 pieces of Zorah set, 1 Rex Roar which can be forged after MR 70. But this time, I'm gonna introduce the build which is easy to forge, even before the end of the story. Today's build is Charge Blade, Deep Schnegel II. Deep Schnegel II is Power Element Phial Charge Blade. Unlike MHW, Non-Elemental boost is not so efficient in Iceborne, and Impact Phial Charge Blade as well. In MHW, Diablos Charge Blade was always the best option. High damage, Minus Affinity, Impact Phial. But in Iceborne, Power Element Phial became much stronger. Deep Schnegel II is the strongest Power Element Phial Charge Blade in Iceborne now. Even after Safi'Jiva update, Deep Schnegel II is still the best choice for Ice-type. The most important option for Power Element Phial Charge Blade is Element Attack status. Deep Schnegel II has low attack damage but has basic 480 Ice Attack. It has long-white sharpness so Handicraft isn’t necessary for this weapon.
Since Deep Schnegel II is Rare 10, and doesn’t have its own weapon design, it means Deep Schnegel II is perfect for Augment Equipment. Rare 10 weapon basically has 5 slots for Augment Equipment, can be increased up to 7 via Extra Slots upgrade. Once you add Health Regen there are still 4 more slots. You can add Element/Status Effect Up upgrade 2 times more. This boosts your Element Attack for 30 each. Also, Deep Schnegel II has Custom Upgrades as well. You can add Mods which is “Slightly increases element and abnormal status effect damage”. Each Mod is Jyuratodus, Tobi-Kadachi, Rathalos, Black Diablos, Vaal Hazak Mod. Total Element Attack boost amount is 50.
So let’s see. We already added 110 Element Attack more on Deep Schnegel II. It’s already 590 Ice Attack now. It can be boosted even more with Ice Attack skill. Maximum Element Attack in town is 800. Namielle armors are the best for Power Element Phial Charge Blade. Set bonus skill of Namielle armor is “True Element Acceleration”, it activates if you continually attack a monster, increases elemental damage a lot. I have no captured screenshot now, but sometimes my elemental damage is going to over 1,000. Against Diablos, the weakest monster against Ice, each Phial damage of Amped Element Discharge is over 270.
The most important skills are Ice Attack Lv.6 (5 is okay if you are not able to fully upgrade your charm), Focus Lv.3, Capacity Boost. Focus makes your Phial charge rate much faster, other 2 are related to boost your damage directly. Added Guard Lv.1 for increase Guard Point level, Critical Eye & Weakness Exploit & Health Boost is typical Iceborne skills. I have 3 Tenderizer/Vitality Jewel but if you don’t have enough, you can just remove Health Boost and add Weakness Exploit only. I’ll add my play that hunts Zinogre & Glavenus in pub. I’m not a professional player so don’t mind about my many mistakes! XD
