Elemental Attack Up
Elemental Attack Up is a fantastic skill to use against enemies with large elemental weaknesses. By boosting the level of your elemental damage, you can really exploit weapons with elemental attributes.
When used as a Blademaster, Elemental Attack Up visually increases the elemental attribute of your weapon by 20%. As this is a set percentage, using the skill on a weapon with a tiny elemental attribute (example being the Ukanlos melee weapons) is a bit of a waste and will not change your damage output by much. However, weapons with a huge elemental attribute can really improve by using Elemental Attack Up.
When using a Bowgun, Elemental Attack Up multiplies the damage of elemental ammunition by 1.125. Yes, it is only a 12.5% boost as opposed to the 20% given to melee weapons, but the nature of Bowguns means that this smaller boost is just as useful. When used in conjunction with the Autoreload skill, a clip of 60 elemental shots with a 12.5% damage boost can be fired at a monster's weak spot in around two minutes, inflicting huge damage. If this damage is further enhanced by using Felyne Heroics, the amount of damage you can inflict with a Bowgun is absolutely devastating. As an example, by combining Elemental Attack Up with Autoreload and Felyne Heroics and using the Ultimate Lao-Shan Cannon, it is possible to kill a HR9 Black Gravios in just 80 water elemental shots.
