Coating becomes viable when you break off the armor and shoot exposed areas. Using several builds mainly based on Rathian and Rathalos including the variations used the rathian sets to get rathalos sets. I'll also often gem in affinity sliding +30% affinity for a short time after sliding , since the slope attack spam with the Hammer is seriously hack. You're going to die a lot at first, but they have big openings and wide hit zones. These coatings are so essential in every fight that you should spend money on keeping a stash and eventually devote one of your harvest spots to nitroshrooms to craft them with. So how are your builds looking? As mentioned above Bows have arrow tiers that increase when you charge a shot, shoot in quick succession or by dodging after a shot and shooting again quickly.
I can identify with wanting to change weapons though. Unlike some games, in Monster Hunter: World Bows do not use ammo and so Hunters will never run out arrows. Also take in mind the range, the dragon piercer has limited range, although its farther then any normal arrow will go. Peak performance 3 is maintained thanks to the Vaal regen skill and the health clouds worth an attack 7 boost without the affinity. Note: While fighting a Barroth, I was routinely hitting for low 60's with Anja on Normal Charged x2 Shots. Charge levels apply to dragon piercer, and if you have the time to use it, you should probably try to do so with a charge.
You can switch the jewels to how you prefer. When you run out of power coating ammo, you can hit the crafting menu and quickly make 20 more. The following universal skills tend to show up on most or all of my builds: Weakness Exploit already mentioned , Stun Resistance being stunned sucks and will get you killed against powerful monsters, and I usually have three 1-slots to spare to gem this in , for melee weapons one level of Flinch Free, which keeps me from being staggered by small teammate attacks especially crucial for Lance , and lastly and again for melee weapons Handicraft if the weapon I'm using will seriously benefit from the extra sharpness. Instead, constantly build charge while firing with whatever shot you have time to shoot in order to evade damage. I'll list my main Bow Build below. Before that I was focusing on a Dragon Hammer build using Vaal Hazak armor with Peak Performance and regen. Especially since I don't need good old Eyepatch and have smooth 100% Crit on every single hit.
Instead they use coatings, which apply special effects to the arrows, and have a limited number of uses. The gains you make crafting power coatings will far outweigh the cost. If you press the button three times, you perform a rapid combo similar to the right trigger combo. Self-Advertising, Monetized Content, or Clickbait No spam or clickbait content is allowed. Violations of this rule will result in a temporary ban.
We also have a , with further details on their strengths and weaknesses. It has extremely slow startup and recovery, and you cannot cancel the move if you guess wrong or the monster moves out of your sight. This build has not been fully tested, changes are appropriate. Does not consume any coatings. The evade window skill increases the invincible period of the dodge roll. Players often create different builds for different purposes, accounting for the strengths and weaknesses of their target monster, quest or their favored weapon.
For Bow, Constitution and Stamina Surge but especially the former are pretty crucial to allow you to keep on firin' without a lot of down time waiting for your stamina to replenish. Few bows can use this, and fewer of them can be carried than normal power coatings. Additionally, buying and selling of services merchandise, exclusive quests, etc is not allowed. I can swap out elemental resistance for more elemental damage or faster heals depending on the situation. I make frequent use of a paralyze lance that requires awaken when I'm playing in a group; I sometimes throw some levels into evade window, because that's always nice to have. For a move advanced combination, you can press B or circle at the end of a rapid right trigger combo — this fires a spread shot at maximum charge, extending your damage output.
Now this is not the most damage efficient set like I mentioned, but tool assists means that you get to use the rocksteady mantle often enough to make up for it. While that is a playstyle you might see some speed runners using, it's not good for general purpose use in my opinion. It focuses on maximizing damage skills Attack Boost, Weakness Exploit, and Critical Eye with early game equipment. Without sufficient stamina, the player cannot make evasion rolls or run away from danger. Mixing up your coatings and moveset is going to greatly increase your chances of survival.

If that sounds like your style, give it a try. I've pretty much only used Odogaron+Dragonking eyepatch ever since I hit High Rank. With proper use, bow users can inflict steady, strong damage while constantly shifting position to keep just beyond the reach of the monster.
