The insect glaive is a pretty complex weapon, I would start on the long sword. It's pretty simple; your A & X attacks charge the energy bar. You can use R to slice and consume that energy. You should charge the bar fully, the press R until the combo finishes, sheathing your blade. If the last stroke of the combo hit a monster you will graduate to a glowing white blade, increasing your attack. The levels are normal, white, yellow, then red, each more powerful than the last. Each level makes it easier to charge up the R attack bar as well as having a shorter buff duration. When the attack buff elapses your sword will stop glowing; then you'll have to charge up again. If you can stay yellow or red for most of the time you will be dealing a lot of damage. Also, try to combine A & X in such a way that you maintain a continuous combo, to charge up faster.
