Mushroomancer is a Skill in Monster Hunter World (MHW). It is increased in level based on the amount of Equipment with this skill the hunter is using. Each level works as follows:

Benefits of Mushrooms:

  • Blue Mushroom – Potion – Restores a small amount of health.
  • Toadstool – Immunizer – Increases Health Recovery rate for 5 minutes. Also cures bleeding.
  • Nitroshroom – Demondrug – Increases Attack Power. Effect lasts until you faint in battle.
  • Parashroom – Armorskin – Increases Defense. Effect lasts until you faint in battle.
  • Mandragora – Max Potion – Maximizes your Health Gauge & a full heal. (Does not work with Wide-Range)
  • Devil’s Blight – Dash Juice – Reduce dodge/jump/evade Stamina cost by half and increases regen speed for 4 minutes.

Here are the three levels of the Mushroomancer skill, and the specific bonus granted by eating each fungus type:

  • Level 1: Lets you digest Blue Mushrooms and Toadstools.
  • Level 2: Additionally lets you digest Nitroshrooms and Parashrooms.

Essential Skills

These two skills are the only ones I’d absolutely 100% say are essential to the Mushroomancer playstyle. Every other one I detail are strongly recommended on top of these, but if for some reason you just want to half-♥♥♥ it and just take what’s essential, these are what I always say to pick up.

Speed Eating 3 increases your consumption speed of food and drink items by 64%, and quick use items, like Mushrooms, by 38%. You want to be shoving these items down your gullet fast so you can get right back into the action, and no animations should be able to stop you from that.

Wide-Range 5 makes items you use affect nearby allies in a very large radius with full efficiency. There is no alterations or substitutions to this. While yes, you can drop this skill if you just hate playing with people, even your Palico, but without it what’s the point of having such an item-centric build?

Besides, as far as you know the only items your party brought with them are what they take out of the supply box and leave you nothing but the Empty Phials and Ammo you’re not using. Nobody likes to play support, but everybody likes to win. If you like to win, you’re going to want to take this so those Long Sword weeaboos don’t cart every five minutes. Maybe only every ten if you’re lucky.

Strongly Recommended Skill

Technically, this makes two skills, but really there’s only one skill I can give my full support to as something I wouldn’t be caught without, and that’s Free Meal.

Free Meal has a 25% chance to proc at Level 1, allowing you to just not consume any food or drink item you use. Think of it as a freebie item every once in a while which keeps you from having to jump back to camp to restock because either you’re too trigger happy with the heals and buffs, or your other three hunters are eating Nergigante divebombs for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

HOWEVER, with three pieces of Brute Tigrex/Tigrex gear, you unlock Free Meal Secret in which you unlock two more ranks to Free Meal which increases the proc chance to 50% and 75% respectively. This takes Free Meal into levels of absurdity in how many times it will proc over a whole hunt. It’s not uncommon to see some Mega Potions or Blue Mushrooms leftover even though you’ve been spamming it when someone even takes the smallest pittance of damage. This gives you an absurd amount of staying power before you’re absolutely out of toys in your utility belt. Get this skill when you can, it’s real good.
