In this guide, we’ll cover the trees and attacks from MHW’s Long Sword weapon. We’ll go over when it’s best to use each attack, what they do, and how to get the most out of them.

The mhw long sword tree best is a guide that will teach you how to use the trees and attacks in Monster Hunter World.

With a broader arching reach, the Long Sword is intended to cut and slice while also incorporating certain footwork and posture modifications.

Every blow on your opponent fills your spirit gauge, boosting the strength of your strikes and enabling you to chain combos and use the helm splitter move, which slashes several times for many instances of damage.

This tutorial will go through the most powerful Monster Hunter World Long Swords, as well as the different attack techniques you may use, as well as their benefits and drawbacks.

Attacks

Spirit Gauge/Spirit Meter

MHWLSG-3

Normal melee attacks charge your Spirit Meter, and the light of the Spirit Gauge and your sword shows its strength as you level it up.

You may use strong strikes known as Spirit Blade attacks when it fills up, which work well with both critical and status effect builds.

Slash/Slash/Slash/Slash/Slash/Slash/Slash/Slash

MHWLSG-4

This may be done before un-sheathing or while attacking, and it also serves as the commencement of your basic combo strikes, which will produce Spirit Meter for your more powerful attacks.

Thrusting Forward

MHWLSG-5

This forward thrust may also be launched from a sheathing posture, which has a quicker animation than the Step Slash but no overhead reach to prepare for subsequent techniques like Slash of Foresight or Thrust of the Spirit.

Slash is on the rise.

MHWLSG-6

The Rising Slash is a basic move that may target portions like the head or tail. It is the final blow in the basic combination.

This also produces Spirit Meter, which may be used in the Spirit Blade combination to ensure that the Roundslash of the Spirit is performed successfully.

Foresight Slash

MHWLSG-7

Both a defensive and offensive move that can only be launched after a basic strike, allowing the wielder to slide back a short distance and swiftly return to the same place to perform a fast slash.

This comes in two varieties, each of which performs the same animation but with distinct effects.

If you don’t have any Spirit Meter, the other one will activate, allowing you to physically dodge but not negating any damage if you are struck directly.

If you have any Spirit Meter, you may use it to escape an attack by draining it in any quantity, even if you are directly in the line of the source of harm.

This perfect dodge has the additional advantage of allowing you to do a Spirit Roundslash, which increases your Spirit Meter.

Slash Fade

MHWLSG-8

This is a Step Back technique that may be used to reposition yourself or disengage your opponent by hopping backwards or to the side with the momentum of your blade.

Slashing Ashes

MHWLSG-9

This is the Long Sword’s basic mounting attack, which may be used while falling from tiny ledges or during wall running.

Slash of Falling Spirit

MHWLSG-10

This move is similar to the Falling Slash in that it does not start mounting but, if timed properly, may deliver several strikes.

Combo of Spirit Blades

MHWLSG-11

The first combo attack that will start the Spirit Roundslash as a final chain to the Spirit Blade combination uses up your Spirit Meter and delivers significantly enhanced damage, which is the Spirit Blade combo’s initial combo attack.

Spirit Roundslash

MHWLSG-12

The Spirit Blade Combo’s last strike, which increases the Spirit Gauge by 1 if it hits a monster.

If you immediately sheath your weapon after the strike, regardless of whether it hits or misses your target, you started the Spirit Roundslash.

Spirit Thrust

MHWLSG-13

This charged thrust strike has a longer range, and if it hits anything, it will cause you to jump into the air, triggering the Breaker of Spirit Helmets.

Spirit Helm Breaker

MHWLSG-14

For the Spirit Blade to inflict damage, a falling slash does not need to strike the monster directly, but just the region of the targeted target.

After a brief wait, this will begin a series of damage occurrences that may be influenced by affinity, elemental damage, and status effects.

Despite the fact that it will deplete one level of your meter, the Spirit Helm Breaker has the advantage of constantly generating Spirit Meter based on the level of the Spirit Gauge, enabling you to chain combos.

Advantages and disadvantages

Pros

  • Buffs for Self-Damage
  • High Intensity
  • Combo Attacks in Chains
  • a large number of people

Cons

  • To get the full impact, you’ll need a lot of resources.
  • Attacks are irreversible.

OverviewMHWLSG-15

Most Monster Hunters favor the Long Sword because of its burst damage potential with normal strikes, as well as its Spirit Combo, making it a formidable weapon to wield.

A properly timed Long Sword combination strike gives a monster little to no time to react, and even if they do, a Foresight slash may easily nullify the assault and return punishment with your Spirit Helm Breaker.

Overall, the Long Sword is a fantastic weapon to learn, but it may take some practice to figure out when to utilize your defensive strikes and when to go for the kill.
