Current damage formula for Monster Hunter 3 (Tri) has been established. Many components are similar to the original formula from previous games. Elemental damage and raw damage are now added together before any decimals are dropped. Sharpness now affects KO values by the same multiple as listed for raw attack.

Sharpness (SHARP)

Sharpness Color Attack Modifier Element Modifier
Red .50* .25
Orange .75* .50
Yellow 1.0* .75
Green 1.05 1.0
Blue 1.20 1.0625
White 1.32 1.125
Purple 1.50 1.20
  • At yellow sharpness or below, a small chance of damage correction can occur. This will cause you to do only

40% of the actual listed damage. To avoid this, keep your weapon in green sharpness or higher.



Monster Hitzone (HITZONE)

See hitzone charts for variable. Enter as a decimal. Example: 80 = .80



Element Hitzone (ELMZONE)

See hitzone charts for variable. Enter as a decimal. Example: 80 = .80



Elemental Power (ELEMENT)

Amount of element listed on your weapon status.



Class Multipliers (CLASS)

Weapon Multiplier
Short Sword 1.4
Lance 2.3
Longsword 3.3
Great Sword 4.8
Hammer 5.2
Switch Axe 5.4

Example

A hunter with a Shining Wyvern Blade attempts to execute a revolution slice (circle) against the regular green Rathian in her face. Assuming the weapon is a sharpness level of white,

(Attack power X Weapon type X Weapon sharpness X Hitzone X Variable) / Class = Total raw damage

Therefore,

(357 X 0.24 X 1.30 X 0.90 X 1.50)/ 1.40 = 107.4 which would be rounded down to 107.
