So getting past Safi wasn’t as hard as you thought, or maybe it was I don’t know, but now that you’ve seen some of the endless possibilities of all 14 weapons Monster Hunter World Iceborne offers you might be incredibly eager to get the right build or atleast start working on one that fits your gem budget.

So for your own stat building good my hunter padre you’re going to want to know what the best weapons are to pick up from Safi Siege drops right away to start upgrading, augmenting and awakening and whatever else Capcom decides it wants us to do to these beautiful Red Dragon weapons. 

10. Safi’s Venomfang (Best for Poison Damage)

Poison can really increase damage and with the fast and easy to maneuver Sword and Shield you will be sure to get a fair amount of procs. Figuring out a way to sharpen less and maneuver and attack more seems to be something good to learn for this bladed weapon. The additional shield keeps the combos abundant which also have a detailed combo connection system worth figuring out for certain rewarding triggers.

  • 378 Attack
  • 5% Affinity
  • 90 Poison

9. Safi’s Shatteraxe (Best for Raw and Blast Dmg)

Raw damage but not only from the weapon’s base stat but also from it’s Phial Type Power that makes your raw attack damage even more powerful is what makes Safi’s Savage Axes so useful. With such a high attack base already it takes no risk to set some skills to comfort for a more happier playstyle.

8. Safi’s Shatterspear (Best for Raw and Blast Dmg)

Aerial advantage is very useful when hunting and with the Insect Glaive it’s easy to jump into those mounts using the monster’s blind spots to land great mount KO positioning. So the almighty Airborne skill is always worth it and conserving stamina with the Constitution skill makes up from such high aerial movement and attacks. Like most bladed weapons Master’s Touch Affinity and Attack Boost are always a great rule of thumb for buildmaking.

Weapon Stats:

  • Lv4 Gem Slot
  • 5% Affinity
  • 150 Blast

7. Safi’s Hellclaws (Best for Raw and Fire Dmg)

The Dual Blades are known for fast successive hits and in Monster Hunter World that’s really good for dishing out Element/Status damage. Safi’s weapons are always high in raw attack damage and with many options in Dual Blades’ built in Element damage its good to have an element weapon of each to match whatever target's element weakness is. Stay sharp and keep moving.

Weapon Stats:

  • Lv4 Gem Slot
  • 378 Attack

6. Safi's Shattershield (Best for Raw and Blast Dmg)

Charge Blades are a peculiar weapon as it uses elemental damage big blade attacks from its element specific phial discharging system that stores its necessary energy by relying on detailed charging commands. So the higher the raw attack, crit and affinity boosts and element/status attack skills the more your overall dps will be and the more gramma will brag about you to her BINGO friends. It all works out like that.

Weapon Stats:

  • Lv4 Gem Slot
  • 972 Attack

Safi’s bows are great for ranged attacks and have a huge elemental as well as critical hit damage advantage. Critical Element and Element Acceleration skills from built in armor set bonuses Velkhana Divinity and Namielle Divinity are always skills to be building up around. True Dragonvein Awakening would increase both of these skill ranges even further which is always the best giving more damage from safe no risk target distances.

So with a good hammer the higher the raw attack damage the more blast and ko procs you’ll be hitting which will carry you in Monster Hunter World most everywhere you’ll need to go. The eye of Safi is melded into the hammer and opens every time it is drawn. Affinity and Sharpness are still skills to be nurtured even though this is clearly a blunt weapon.

  • 5% Affinity
  • 210 Blast Damage

1. Safi’s Shatterblade (Best for Blast Damage)

With some of the best attack animations as well as attack damage in game, the Longsword is the most sought out MHW weapon and Safi’s Shatterblade doesn’t fail to keep Longsword fans where they should be. Safe and sound with an 11 foot blade ready to be unsheathed and shattered with blast damage across their target’s head or tail.

Blast damage being an excellent pair with raw damage and something generally sought after in Awakening weapon selection, is just icing on the cake with this Longsword. A good awakening setup would be Attack all the way or divy in some Sharpness using Teostra’s Technique with Master’s touch to preserve sharpness.

Weapon Stats:

  • Lv4 Gem Slot
  • 891 Attack
  • 5% Affinity
