All and all it gives you
Evasion up
Unsheathe Crit
Exploiter
Sharp Sword
Except for Evasion up, your other skills almost useless for SA. Even a set with evasion up and attack up large skill could do better than your set most of the time.

I just need S+1 and evade+2, unless I use Ala's S.A. I won't need S+1

Jho with evade+2 and S.A. is childs play

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.

^There's something hiding in my post, too.

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.

What is charge attack?

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 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 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.

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)

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?
