I been using switch axe for awhile, but there are some deep understanding that I just discover so far.

1. Jinouga axe with sharpness +1 (handicraft) skill is the best set for axe. It will match any set even if the monsters is not weak to thunder at all. The reason for that is the power coating give 25% increase to raw. And jinouga axe with S+1 skill have a highest raw. It had tiny blue sharpness, but when you have S+1 skill, it had a biggest white bar. lol.

2. I used only 2 of main moves for axe are triangle in sword mode and burst thrust. Charge spirit bar and repeat. Axe mode will never match sword mode, so use it only when you have to. The burst thrust attk with fast triangle tapping will do more damage than 2 LBB+, so plan to do this attack all the time. I think this is a strongest combo in mh3rd.

Welcome to post any useful tips for axe.

This forum hasn't been active in a while, but I have a question. I'm still working my way through the 3 star village quests, and I'm using the bone axe + which has the power phial. I'm also wearing the Jaggi armour, along with 3 attack up 1+ decorations which gives me the (M) attack up (15+), so how do I work out the raw damage for sword mode, is it;

(115+15)*1.25=162.5
or
(115*1.25)+15-158.75?

switch axe is a very nasty weapon in my opinion, especially when utilized correctly; i've played MHP3rd for about 2 months and done pretty well (different controls compared to Tri since Tri is on Wii lol)

I finally got MHP3rd on my PSP and have been playing for a few hours. It's nice to know this thread has some decent to good SA sets for me to try out/aim for. I really can't wait to fight the Jin.

I need to test this, but some people say you can accelerate the burst by holding the analog stick down. Less damage, since it hit the monster less time.


PD: Sorry for my English, I am new to SA.

I cant get switch axe to do the big giant burst.
To do burst attack, you have to be in sword mode, and your charge bar have to be more than half. To activate the attack, press circle + triangle at the same time. After that tap on triangle as fast as you can to do extra damage.

I have mastered the charge attack.
What is charge attack?

And am also haveing trouble with

the non stop swing that drains your stamina.
This attacks are weak and drain your stamina. I was using them in axe mode until I found out they did less damage than just normal axe swing (circle and triangle). I don't see any benefit from this attack except for make you look like god in a group. Seem like you attack the monster more than everyone else, but your budies are actually the one who kill the monster, you just scatching most of the time.

Anyway, here are 2 way to activate the fast swing. You can only do this in axe mode. Attack with select then follow up with tapping circle to swing away your stamina. 2nd way, attack with circle+triangle, then tapping circle to get in fast swing.

I've read somewhere that turning the analog stick quickly when you're tapping the Triangle button for the Burst makes it blow off more quickly, but I have yet to test it.
