  • Eternal Strife is a powerful SnS that is excellent for high Rank as well as Elder Quests. It is good to use when facing Lao-Shan Lung, Rathalos, Teostra, and Lunastra. It has the second highest dragon element in MHF2, falling only behind Eternal Eradicator which has 840 dragon while Eternal Strife only has 520 dragon. Though other weapons have substantially more raw damage, and have only slightly under 520 Dragon Element, (around 480-500), those weapons are G-ranked. It is overall an excellent weapon, and is highly accessible because it can be made from materials obtained from Elder Quests.
  • It is also rivaled by the Smolder Dragonsword LS in terms of elemental power in MHF2.
  • While having low raw attack in MH3, the high sharpness and high amount of dragon make it a very powerful weapon.
