Dual Blades

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate: Pelagic Deublades
Damage Type
Cut
Weapon Class Multiplier
1.4

Dual Blades are similar to the Sword and Shield but with a stronger focus on offence at the expense of defence. Individual Dual Blade attacks deal a small amount of damage, but they are very fast and flow easily into combos. As with the Sword and Shield, a lot of Dual Blades have Status or Elemental effects to increase their efficiency, and are able to have separate Elements, such as Fire on one blade and Ice on the other. Dual Blade users can also enter Demon mode by pressing the R button which allows them to resist being blown over by monster’s wings, allows attacks to be linked into a never-ending combo, and allows the Demon Dance to be used, a powerful combo that cannot bounce. Stamina is gradually drained while in Demon Mode, but a gauge appears that can be filled by striking the monster which, once filled, causes the hunter to enter Archdemon Mode. In Archdemon mode, all attacks become more powerful, and rolling is replaced with the Demon Dash, a very quick dash. Archdemon mode remains active whether the hunter is in Demon Mode or not, however it will expire if the gauge is fully depleted.
