I like Monster Hunter.
What's your favorite weapon and why is it the gunlamce?
I've never played a MonHun game before. I wanted to get into it on the PSP but I don't have any Nintendo handhelds anymore either. What should I do?
play Monster Hunter Freedom with PPSSPP using a controller of your choice
Keyboard is a bit hard to use for it.
Or just buy a PSP now since it's pretty cheap and softmod it so you can play it like it's real
u wot bro
At least recomment Freedom Unite.
And if you think the game is too bulshit-y even after you kill your first Tigrex (run from the first one you find, by the way), try translated P3rd HD, it's 3rd gen, polished to a whole new level and easier.
get a N3DS and join the MH4u master race.
neither come out for a while but it's worth looking into if you want a modern handheld that actually has a good library now.
there isn't going to be a Wii U version
err in what way?
because you have to wait?
>really fucking strong
>huge reach with axe overhead
>sword mode has free ESP and power phial makes it even more OP
It's retardedly overpowered and sadly it seems that all these steampunk weapons will remain the same, seeing how the Charge Blade is.
people do like it but I think a lot of people don't like it because its too much of a jack of all trades kind of weapon
its like in a regular RPG people would rather just be a plain fighter/wizard/ranger etc... than some weird hybrid who does it all
its more fun for them to specialize basically
Yeah it's fairly active. If you own a wii u it's definitely worth it.. I don't post in the monhun general but I'll pop in their lobby every now and then and they're pretty cool.
I killed her so much as a dummy to test new weapons that I started to feel bad for a bunch of polygons
I have a particular fondness for this one, even if Narga's not my favorite.
TIME TO LEAVE THEM ALL BEHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIND
Does anyone know the story about the weapon the humans made to fight against the dragons? Like the anti dragon dragon, made from different parts of dragons slapped together and built on the hopes and dreams that it can even stand a chance against the different dragons?
MH Lore where
Oh, were you in the last thread I dumped these in? I don't see that one very often.
There's actually this new monster in MH4U that seems to touch on the lore. Somewhat. It's a sort of zombie like dragon that's impaled by what some magazines say is the very first dragonator.
I'm on mobile I can't search for the video ;_;
Ooh. Now I know you're playing hardball.
It's not a zombie, though.
Boy do I regret shitposting about that when people gullible like you exist.
Well shit, that's a new one. I'm plumb outta ammo.
It's not new. Just my trump card.
Have a cup for your troubles, friend.
Guess I must've missed it last time. Ah well, well played.
I just did my first Lagiacrus mission in 3U. I was dissapointed that it didn't let me kill it, just scare him away, since I already killed a few online on my first few days with the game and I was pretty confident, but I still got to cut his tail. It was satisfying.
Also I decided to try the longsword and discovered they made it more powerful since MHF2, the last MH I played. Shit's awesome.
I shouldn't be enjoying this as much as I am.
fffuck your preference, shit taste, shit monster, hope he's gone in 4U.
Not only retarded hit boxes on every move. Fucker is also stupid enough to get baited even though he sees you there just standing fishing.
Also the gayest armor ever conceived and without a waist part. Would not wear outside very few certain underwater battles.
>complaining about plessy hitboxes on 3U
I'm sorry for you.
Don't have any others, enjoy.
>being a furfaggot.
I should be saying I'm not sorry for you but it could be b8 for all I know, also I'm not one to shit on others.
Seriously though the hit boxes were retarded. I still raped the damn thing only to get his G armor only for Goldbeard farming.
Then I saw what a pushover he is and I started questioning what I had been farming for all this time.
>actually farming plesioth armor
>being a jhofaggot
At least go praise a real monster like Brachydios.
Nigga I already praise that fucker. Got his SA maxed out, went to Goldbeard with it and realized I didn't need anything else except that. I could even go with a High Rank armor and still rape it with my explosive overlord.
Its probably the best weapon I have ever made up to now and I'm almost 300hours in.
Have as fun as you can, the game doesn't get more fun after that point if you ask me with practically no new monsters other than Miralis, Lucent Narga and Abyssal Lagi.
I'm so angry that CAPCOM abandoned the PSP and Sony as the Monster Hunter platform. I've been unable to play any of the next games due to this. It's so sad to see crustaceancism at this day and age in the vidya industry.
Any fellow crab-bros that find this problem too?
capcom didn't abandon sony... they just didn't want to pay to keep the series. blame sony, not capcom.
3DS master race reporting in, don't mind me.
How can I tell which weapon is better?
Do I go by attack? Sharpness?
How do I even read the sharpness meter?
On an unrelated note:
I just killed pic related for my first time a few hours ago and I am so relieved it's not going to be in MH4U. Lagi was really fun on land at least.
oops I meant I'm relieved water combat isn't going to be in, not lagi.
I pummeled your waifu but an hour ago.
sharpness gauges deflects. you always want to be at green or higher in sharpness although just starting the game you'll prob be at yellow. high sharpness lvls give a dmg boost to attacks.
as far as better weps it depends. for example a hammer/GS bro are probably looking for raw damage. on the flip side SNS/DS bros might be looking for a high elemental or status damage. shouldnt really worry about sharpness until you hit g rank. just have a green sharp weapon or better.
tigrex is my little bro
Which of the PS2 or PSP monster hunters are the best? I have been meaning to try this shit out, but I don't know where to start, and I don't have any fancy newfangled gaming systems lying about
>finally have underwater combat
>can chase plesioth into the water instead of trying to fish him out or piss him off with sonic bombs
>a whole slew of new monsters added to fight on land and in the water as well.
>the water fighting mechanics are somewhat clunky but aren't so bad after getting a feel for them.
>everyone bitches anyway
>no more water based combat
>Lagiacrus, ludroth, gobbul all likely won't be seen again, ever
>Plesioth is practically guaranteed to show up again because reasons.
>implying /v/ is one person
Been playing MHFU on/off since it came out, took a break to beat P3rd and 3U but last game I played was MHFU
Working on my third character slot atm, bows only, got 400 hunts so far
I'm using GS on MH3U, which armor set should I work towards since I just got into G-Rank?
I used a standard Wroggi set for all of Low rank and most of High Rank since I didn't bother much with armors, but I figure now is a good a time as any to actually get an armor set that has all skills that benefit GS like Quick Draw, but I don't know which set has that.
As much as I loved the PSP, and how great I know MH would look on the Vita, the 3DS controls are okay with the CPP, and moving all the bars and info to the bottom screen works perfectly. I hated it when 3U came out, but had to adapt and became fond of it.
Stick with what you like for now. When you start getting bored, try a new weapon. It's like a different game when you have a different tool in your hand.
Also HBG/Great Sword master race.
The thing is MHFU is my first MH so I'm getting wrecked left and right. Took me a while to get used to GS and I still haven't fully mastered it. Learning any more weapons seems fucking impossible.
been using pic related for a while.
can't wait to upgrade it
Ah, yes. FU is so hard to get into. It made me give up when I started, then P3rd got me hooked. Went back and finished FU after I completed nearly everything in 3U. I say try P3rd before going on. It's easier, but that's because the hitboxes aren't insane.
Sorry anon, I'm only 11 hours in.
I finished the Jungle and Desert missions from the village leader, and still working on Swamp.
I'll was actually going to start P3rd, but the iso I got wouldn't work with PPSSPP.
So like, you know how you can get different outfits for your pig?
>Guns second last
>lumping two totally different weapons into one slot even though they're both top tier
>thinks hammer out-damage GS
>thinks LS and DS out damage Lances
>thinks DS isn't one of the lowest dps classes even at the highest level of play
Motherfucker, that's some unprecedented amount of bad.
Reminder to wear earplugs
Before this shit goes any further lets recap the official tier list for weapons in every MH game.
The weapon you use
The weapons I use
Best weapon overall:
The one your most comfortable with
Now go eat a pickle nigger
I've had the golem blade for a while now
because my buddy helped me get some decent gear when I was new to the gameand I just unlocked the ravager blade. is it a good upgrade to the golem blade?
I need a new GS
I can also craft the Valkyrie Blade,
Weapons Ranking in
Sword and Shield
That totally depends on your play style man, if you want to do hit-and-run you'd want quick sheath and punish/quick draw, if you want to do big damage get handicraft, fast charge and any damage boosting skill.
Remember, GS is all about timing. Learn your weapon and when to slam it into a monsters face
From what I remember the Golem blade only has yellow sharpness, so it bounces off of shit a lot. I'd reccommend upgrading to anything that has better than yellow sharpness at least. Although I'm not super familiar with the game myself, only have ~60 hours in it.
Okay thanks for the help, and yeah I think i've been getting the hang of the GS, I've been switching between that and the Hammer, with some funlance on the side. I already consulted the /mhg/ pastebin so I feel like I know the basics at least.
valkyrie though eh?
my only problem with it is it doesn't have a gem slot.
not that I necessarily have anything worthwhile as far as talismans go but still.
yup that's why I'm trying to upgrade. I didn't know about sharpness back then.
I need to get to diablos
I just got to lvl 5 quests. not sure how far away I am but I'm assuming I'm close since cha cha dipped out on me to fight him.
it upgrades to the blade of talos but it still has yellow sharpness. from experience with the golem blade it can get kind of annoying just bouncing off shit.
3DS, sorry bruh I wish I could.
Higher chance of scoring a crit that deals full damage+the percentage of affinity your weapon has. Let's say you have Pale Kaiser with 1256 attack and 40% affinity, a crit gives you 1256 damage+40% of 1256 damage
Same goes for negative affinity, let's say you have Cera with 1488 atk and -30% aff, same thing but reduced damage
>Hi, I'm Ceadeus slightly less boring cousin
Depends on your hammer, but generally it's the same as GS with handicraft and Fast Charge
You might wanna get KO too, so Blos X maybe? Or just about any armor with a lot of slots is fine too
