  3. What's a good Anti-AT Nergigante HBG build?
I typically use Long Sword, Charge Blade, Lance and IG and I haven't really had too much of an issue fighting him with the LS outside of getting hit by a few combos here and there, but I was thinking about building a HBG set in case of cheesy divebombs + to help support with sleep and paralyses ammo, and doing high damage with Cluster.

What build would I use for that? A guard mod with the "super guard" decoration and a bunch of health decos?

I'm not sure what materials you have, but Magda Gemitus II is the best status HBG in the game.

I don't have that but I could probably get it.

I have a decent amount of things, so feel free to just lay out any build and I can go for it. I do have 5 Guard Up gems and 1 Shield Gem, if that matters for HBG's shield mod.

You don't need that many. 1 Shield Gem will let you block everything in the game. You're going to have to adjust the skill levels according to what you have. Use something like Athena's Armor Search to optimize your builds. You want Artillery Lv3 for sleep bombing. When you wake a monster up with Wyvern Fire, it's going to do a lot of damage.

So overall it wouldn't be worth having any extra health augments or divine protection as a "just in-case" backup for Single Player/Multiplayer? And having Ironwall wouldn't matter too right?

The meta build, with a shield mod and HB if you want. It’s a long fight, so replenishing ammo and bombs is beneficial. It’s a little better than the load-out above, which is outdated, but works fine.
I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate.

I don't think so. The idea of any ranged weapon is to take as little damage and hits as possible. The only time an Ironwall would be beneficial is if you were a Tank in a Behemoth fight, and that role isn't for a HBG like MGII.

What is outdated in the build I posted?

Another question about that build, since it has -20% affinity and the only affinity boosting thing I have would be Agitator and that'd bring me to -11%, wouldn't I be doing less damage overall? Or would that not matter with that weapon?

Affinity doesn't make a big difference with Magda as the HBG. Especially if you use Cluster. I don't even worry about Affinity with HBG outside or Pierce and Spread.
