You can then recall it back to you by holding down R2 and pressing the circle button (B on Xbox One). This stat is the elemental damage stat of the Kinsect. That’s all you need to know about how to change your kinsect and what they do in Monster Hunter World. That is, for example, does the speed stat increase the kinsect's attack frequency, or improve the white extract buff?

I also didn't even know how accurate what information was floating around was, as in terms of Monster Hunter World, I only saw people suggesting it "probably" affected healing from Green Extract and Healing Dust. It ultimately comes down to playstyle and preferences though. I'm a solo player for anytime I hunt something new, and even if I need to farm something specific a lot of the time, but I also play a lot of multiplayer by joining SOS requests. This may save me some mats since I've made one of each of the R5s thinking I may want at least one of each final versions. I am weaning myself off the vigorwasp tool and heal dust bugs help a lot.

The big thing I'm taking away from this is the speed stat means less time with my cloud source sitting on my wrist.

Presumably they're an indication of how fast the kinsect moves to its target and how strong its attacks are, respectively. The Health Boost bonus doesn't affect the heal dust. Just curious :). I am a big fan of information and trying to share it when possible, so when someone asks me a question, if I know the answer I do my best to help, and if I don't I tend to try and figure it out so I can answer. While it's possible this information exists out there, and I'm just not aware of it, I would still rather see it played out for myself. This page covers every Kinsect in Monster Hunter World.

Interestingly, we also see that the healing dust's explosion heals for four points higher than that of the h-lvl 7's green extract, and eight points higher than the h-lvl 3's green extract. In terms of solo play, I've found that healing dust clouds have saved me a ton of potion usage. The blast clouds left by your kinsects can even be mines for stagger purposes of you so choose to. The number depicted below is the length of time it takes for the kinsect to fully recover its stamina from zero....... As you can see from the test results, the h-lvl has an exponentially increasing effect on the amount of health recovered by the green extract. To change your kinsect in Monster Hunter World, you can go to the smithy to nurture a kinsect and adjust your equipment from there, or you could just manage it from your room or item box instead. To make a long story short, I pissed off a Great Jargas, got mad at how pathetic it was, and eventually got some data to see just how much healing it affects with three different kinsects..... For my tests, I wasn't trying to find out the maximum difference or anything like that. This fits with a few other tests I've done with kinsect dusts, which leads me to the conclusion that kinsect dusts heal or damage for fixed amounts, and are not affected by the kinsect's stats. Home for the Monster Hunter: World Reddit community and resource hub... Press J to jump to the feed. The kinsect is a special feature of the insect glaive weapon type in Monster Hunter World, and it provides an assortment of buffs and debuffs, like healing and poison effects.

I used three kinsects for these tests. 5 Games Like Final Fantasy 7 Remake If You’re Looking For Something Similar, 5 Best Monster Hunter World Mods of September 2019, Monster Hunter World Iceborne: How to Get Pendants & What They Do, Phantasy Star Online 2 Invites You to a Toga Party With Proud Monarch AC Scratch Collection, Just Some Gaming Memes To Beat the Monday Blues, The Elder Scrolls Online Expansion Markarth Gets Gameplay Trailer to Celebrate Release, Fortnite’s Next-Gen Update Ready For Day One; Epic Details New Features, Fan-Made Video Reimagines True Detective Opening Using Ghost of Tsushima, Monster Hunter World: How to Change Kinsect & What They Do.

This is a guide to the Best Kinsects in Monster Hunter World and MHW Iceborne! Thanks for the sharing the info. Seems really interesting.

Blast is great for raw damage, poison is great for damage over time, paralysis is great for creating openings for your team, and healing is great for team support or self sustain in a fight.

At the start, you’ll be able to choose between two types of kinsects. All of this is somewhat moot as we can manually recover our kinsect's stamina by sending it out and retrieving it, however, there are times when we won't be able to do so as it runs out, such as when we are in the middle of a mount. Honestly, probably not much. The majority of us pick our kinsects because we want a specific dust type, damage type, or even because we want more raw damage with the kinsect itself.

Blast kinsect in general isn't as strong as I initially thought but they do add up to your damage exponentially if played right. Anytime. Thank you. The difference between h-lvl 3 and h-lvl 11 is 13 points, slightly over double that of h-lvl 3's provided healing. Healing dust, is that a better choice for an IG user over something like paralyzing dust or blast etc? You have done us a great service. The Recovery Up skill does affect the heal dust. So, what does this giant wall of text mean to you? You’ll see an option for nurturing a kinsect at the smithy, but you won’t be able to do anything with this feature unless you’re using the insect glaive. It just comes down to what you personally prefer in a fight, and how your playstyle interacts with the dusts...... As a IG user I was wondering if the element your kinsect has equipped is affected by elemental jewels. The Heal level is determined the same way as the speed and power stats.

Also keep in mind that while this amount isn't spectacular, it is an AoE heal around the explosion, and like the green extract, can be obtained without sheathing your weapon, and is available in unlimited quantities should you be using kinsect that possesses it...... Now then, as for the stamina recovery, the data leads me to believe that there are decreasing returns for each h-lvl higher than the previous. This does not however, affect how fast your kinsect drains stamina while deployed, (all kinsects drain from full to zero stamina in ~25s, though I haven't tested the effect of a stamina boost weapon). It really comes down to personal preference. Fascinating read. Element: Lv 1-15 (up to Lv 20 in Iceborne Kinsects) and Fire, Water, Ice, Thunder, or Dragon. One of them will deal poison damage to monsters, while the other one will give you some extra healing if you need it. Yet we see a difference in healing of 4 points between the first two, and 9 points between the second two.
