Introduction

Many seamless hunters now use Long Swords as their official and primary weapon. Truly, Long swords give off the true spirit of a hunter, for they are incredibly strong, easy to use and maybe one of the most versatile weapons in the whole Monster Hunter ecology. These swords actually came from the idea of Greatswords, but they are lighter and faster. Longswords lack power compared to Great swords, but with their speed, surely no Monster and Wyvern would survive in this deadly blade!


So, a lot of people now are using this weapon. What they do not know is that IT IS MORE THAN THEY KNOW. Did you even know that longswords can have 13 hit chain strikes? Did you know about the power of the retreating slash? Did you know the perfect timing and usage of long swords? Well worry no more! TheLongSworder is here to explain everything you need to know.

Rage attacks are the attacks with required Spirit Bar to activate. The Spirit Gauge can be found below your health. Once full, it will blink white. One Rage attack would require some Spirit, and another attack would require another spirit, and so on. To Rage Attack, press "R" with enough Spirit Bar.

Note that your weapon must be UNSHEATHED to do this. This combo would require A FULL SPIRIT GAUGE.
