2. Safi’s Shatterblade


Before Fatalis was the just as equal grueling to grind yet highly rewarding monster Safi. And just throwing this out there but what would be more entertaining than actually getting either of these end game monster’s gear? Well watching them fight each other of course. Hmmm, I think we’re onto something here. A matchup of Safi versus Fatalis would just be epic, perhaps even legendary.

Anyways, from materials of the Safi’jiva monster farmed through Monster Hunter World’s extensive Siege system is Safi’s Shatterblade. With potential Awakened Abilities being added by the Smithy to the weapon much like mods or augmentations, this Longsword has some serious effective and powerful capabilities.
