I understand Crapcom is under the gun to pad out the monster roster but fuck Nigger Gravios. What a fucking boring fight. He doesn't stand a chance of killing you but there's no good way to hit him.
MONSTER GUILD IS A THING
KONCHUS ARE THE GROUND WORK FOR ACTUAL ARMOR FOR MONSTERS
GORE AND FAMILY ARE PASSING OUT BUFFS TO THE MONSTERS
SELTAS AND QUEEN ARE THERE TO SHOW OFF COMBO ATTACKS
HUNTERS LEARNED HOW TO MOUNT AFTER MANY YEARS OF GETTING PINNED
What are the best glaives to use for HR going into G?
I agree entirely. Another thing I noticed is that he will roll into the lava then get up and spam lasers. Leaving you to roll around like an idiot while he just spams. One of the most boring fights ive had so far. Another thing is, anyone notice how when you lay a trap the monster immediately starts spamming ranged and staying away from it. This is retarded.
How do I play with other people?
From what I got, I go to World map > Multiplayer online > choose a room
But then I get to an empty room and nobody's there, or if there is somebody I don't know how to start the mission
>Go to hunt Rathalos
>hey I know i'll use those smokebombs ive heard about so I can lay down some drugged meat!
>throw down smoke bomb when I enter the room he is in
>walk over and he is just dicking around
>he starts walking towards it while I go hide
>suddenly fireball AOE hits me and I go flying
>now I have to fight him in the fucking fog
What the fuck happened?
Mounting twice breaks off his top shell armor.
Whenever he shoots out his fiery gas, it wont be able to shoot under him because the holes in his armor prevent it from coming down.From there, every laser attack is free for you to wail on him.
I'll lead off by saying thwt you should look through the manual when you get the chance.
While in the gathering hall, you can check out the quest board (just to the right of the quest counter) to join on any quests that are already up.
It doesn't disable his gas, it stops him from discharging gas underneath him when he does the laser, he can still do a standard gas vent without the beam but once the back is broken you can wail on him through every beam for free.
>want to finish up LR before really tackling HR
>Cowardly Palico keeps putting Advance missions in 6*
None are hard but fuck me does he get on my nerves.
>people claim SnS is the god to weapon in terms of sticking to your prey
>charged A's followed by double shield attacks all day erry day
>sidehopping and rolling to keep up and stay close to the monster
>only time I'm not attacking is when I have to release the charges and consequently charge up my shield afterwards
fuck axe mode yo, double tapping is where it's at
Once you stick to SnS you would be shocked how fluid your movements can be during a hunt. The damage output isn't the best but it adds up over time, eventually you can run circles and cut down a monster easily.
SnS has the leap forward draw attack that covers a deceptively large distance and you can do it anytime with X+A shit is baller.
using the hold back+A hop-back-and-then-jump-forward attack to dodge and immediatley get into glue mode is my favorite thing to do in this game
This came in today, it's a little smaller than expected. I did not expect the frame to be made out of metal.
>Monster start limping away
>Stick to it like spastic sword flailing glue
>Cause it to stagger
>Trip it during the stagger
>That feeling when comboing it the whole time as it tries to get to another zone
SnS is so much fucking fun.

when are people going to realize that Lancer is master race.
SnSfags pls go.
>combo about to end
>use the new jump back and forward charge
>everyone else is charging attacks and IG users keep running for essences
HOLY FUCKING SHIT I AM MAD
WHOEVER THOUGHT THAT THE FINAL EGGMISSION IS GOOD NEEDS TO BE HANGED FROM THE BALL AND THEN STABBED SO THAT HE SLOWLY BLEEDS TO DEATH
FIRST YOU HAVE TO BEAT A FRENZIED LOS AND THEN FRENZIED RATH, OKAY THAT'S EASY ENOUGH ONLY TAKES ABOUT 10 MINUTES, BUT WHAT THE FUCK ARE THESE ROUTES?
FIRST AND THE SECOND EGG ARE EASY TO DELIVER BUT WHAT THE FUCK IS UP WITH THIRD ONE? YOU HAVE TO GO ALL AROUND THE HOLE FUCKING MAP AND THESE NIGGER DRAKES ARE CONSTANTLY SPAMMING POISON OVER YOU. IT DOESN'T EVEN HURT, IT JUST MAKES YOU DROP THE EGG.
I NEVER THOUGHT I'D TIME OUT ON AN EGGCARRYING GUEST, BUT THIS SHIT IS PURE FUCKING DICKSUCKING COCKGRABBLER SHITEATING BAD
Hey guys, might go pick this up today.
If I go online, am I going to be one of like 300 other new players using the Insect Glaive? It looks insanely fun my I'm a total autist when it comes to using "the most popular" weapon/class in a game.
not even the true last egg mission
Lancefags are they biggest shits this game has
Even worse than LSfags
At least they dont fucking gloat every damn chance they get
>2 black gravios quest
>two minutes left, he starts limping.
>Set a trap directly in front of him
>no less than six separate heat beams. I counted.
I loaded up on items and killed them both while mad as hell
Why don't you just eat for superfelyne or whatever? It makes it where you don't get knocked over while carrying shit.
I swear I did this first thing and had no problems, but everyone is always complaining about this stupid shit.
Also that's not the true final.
YOU GUYS ARE JOKING RIGHT? RIGHT?
ATLEAST IT'S EASIER RIGHT?
So you're just analblasted that theres a superior weapon to yours and they have the evidence to prove it?
>lancefags think they're better than GS
I bet you're a filthy evadelancer as well
>killing shigeru miyamoto as a gunner solo without 3 meatshield hunters to use as bait
how would this even be possible?
Yes, I found it significantly easier. It's Tigrex and his subspecies in the desert (day). Big, open space, you can do the first trip relatively quickly, before the unknown faggot puts his rocks everywhere. But at least you can dung bomb the tiggys on your second run to the egg place. When I did it, I never dropped the eggs once, because I never saw the Tigrex.
There's NOTHING stronger in this game than Rathalos and Rathian's parenting alert. If you fuck with their eggs, they'll come for you.
great way btw to force them to come to their nesting place when you wanna fight them instead of looking for them all over the map. Or if you just wanna fight them where there's ledges everywhere
Nope, I play lancer how it was meant to be.
>tfw using manly weapon instead of casual charge weapon
Because if you're literally only spamming the jump and fishing for mounts, your damage output will be shit. Mounting in general should only be done when monsters are enraged, if it's something with hard to reach parts, or if it has thick armor like Gravios.
Honestly you should be getting the red/white essences and doing XXA for massive dps.
do felyne buffs stack on eachother?
>Those quests before Apex Steve
>Every single fucking quest I'm nearly done with the monster
>Then Steve shows up
>And kicks me in the fucking face
It's like fucking clockwork.
Hunting Horn user here, I haven't used the charge blade extensively, but just watching a charge blade user, it looks like they just hit the monster and then a big explosion happens that is out of their control and does damage while they watch. What's the point?
Mounts are free periods to sharpen and heal and topples mean massive uninterrupted damage, more than could be achieved if the monster is running about in the topple time period. Besides that, jump attacks can't be deflected, which is great because the insect glaive is so long that you'll bounce off every possible bodypart.
The only reason spamming mount attacks are bad is for long fights where diminishing returns means you won't get the mount when you need it.
>hr in caravan
>have to do all the lr shit in the guild hall again
Question. Which IG should I focus on for HR fights?
I main GS but occasionally if I need to hunt for parts the IG really mixes up my play style. I think I have about 4 or so open for crafting and I have enough essences to get a good kinsect going. Some anon's recommend Gore's version
Ice Ice Baby.
And since he's a Saiyan, break the tail.
I have about 4 that I'm upgrading at once and switch between them when I've surpasses the other.
Currently the using the shaggy magala upgrade of the gore, its pretty solid.
In most cases just stick with the best raw damage until you get to late game where you're trying to fully optimize
The Nerscylla can carry you straight to G Rank. Solid Raw, good sharpness, high enough poison to do consistent damage, and fairly easy to upgrade. The Gore one is good but takes longer to upgrade.
Hey man, I can't seem to get new caravan quests. I've done everything I could, beat Fatalis, beat Molten Tigrex etc. But no new quests. My quests are all checked off, however 6* and 10* are silver instead of gold, so that means there are some quests still missing, but how do I get them?
Early on, I'd say Jaggi.
Though I do like D. Mohran for that unscathed, pierce up, and marathon runner.
Decent all around and good Bow set.
And Unscathed is just fun on Funners, because you shouldn't be getting hit anyway.
On that note fuck Konchus.
Nigga, that shit's easy.
Get Felyne Lander. Don't even need Supercat (though it's a plus).
With Lander, you can cut right to the middle area from the nest by going through the cat area. Sure, for the third egg you still need to go through an extra area, but the exits area really close to each other.
I didn't even bother with killing the raths. I just painted them and kept waiting for them to fly to the nest before jumping to the cats.
The real last egg mission though, that's a different story: no shortcuts to jump from.
You're gotta carry that weight.
You should aim for a weapon other than the scrub blades and memestaff.
It's a well known fact that the best hunters use
Borealis set is pretty dope for beginning high rank and onward
You'll never deflect, have part destroyer, and a chance to take reduced damage.
On top of this you can gem into fast sharpen and whatever else your talisman calls for
All around decent set, used it until g rank.
>playing the weapon designed for cowardly hiding behind a shield and countering
If anything, the DS is the manly weapon since you're giving up your stamina for increased damage
>my face when I've started to become an edge master with dual blades
I just used Blangonga armor and the Rathian LS.
I figured that if I couldn't kill the first one fast enough before the second one showed up while using the Blangonga LS, then maybe I needed to find a way to do damage when I couldn't get hits in.
What is its gimmick?
Blademaster steve weapons have auto sharpen every 5 rolls with weapon drawn
Bowguns reload one shell per sidestep/roll
What bonus do bows get? Is it worthwhile to build it?
I never used bow, but maybe I'll try Steve bow out if it's fun
The irony is that I started with that but became bored after a while
Thanks, gonna take a look into it. Is it acceptable then to use it through the whole low ranking stuff?
First monhun game. Haven't had a hard time up until now, but the Gore Magala in Tipping The Scales is wrecking my shit. Currently carrying a Dragonmaiden Axe and a set of Genprey armor.
It's those fucking explosions that are getting me. Maybe I should look into another weapon type to deal with this.
At this moment I can't remember, but all I know is that you can go ham with close range an power coatings.
If it doesn't skip go to 7:53
That sets effectiveness only really sets in when your attacks are getting deflected due to upgrades being few and far between at certain portions of the game.
Also it makes gravios shit himself.
Destroyer is generally useful too, but if you're not running into these issues a velociprey S set for the attack up is pretty decent.
can anyone not be bothered to start playing once the machine is turned off? I can play for 10 hours straight but if I turn it off and go to bed I'll wake up and not want to play for days
>none of my friends still have this game because they're still waiting for a god damn N3DS MH bundle restock
Don't worry about your weapon. Just try to stay behind him for most of the fight, especially when he frenzies. When that happens, try to mount him. On topple, hit his face with everything you've got to knock him out of frenzy.
>those fucking explosions that are getting me
You mean the ones that always explode horizontal to each other?
Sounds like you just need to back the fuck up or run past them when they start to ignite.
>Finally get the last Cowardly Palico mission
>It's fucking Akantor
>Who basically sonic wave'd his pawpaw's ship from miles away
>And he got to watch it happen
>Watch as his father and hero are torn apart and flung into the abyss by an uncaring monster
Cowardly Pailco had a hard life.
dis nigga knows what's up
slick operator felynes > masked turbo faggots
Is there a difference between the fatalis you fight after the last egg mission and crimson fatalis? A lot of people and websites say that it is crimson fatalis you fight, but he isn't dropping the stuff I need to make the crimson fatalis blast weapons.
Is it not in the game yet like white fatalis? Should I just make the Brachy stuff instead?
does bomb boost up blastblight damage?
>not having bros dancing while u prance/dance
>having each shakalaka having his own dance combos one can heal you while the other do focus on attacking the monster
He doesn't go out of rage mode until enough damage is dealt to him, he has a status effect that doesn't go away until you do enough damage to anything in general.
If you aren't proactive in attacking you aren't going to have a good time.
Not the advice I would give.
I wish MH3babies would go.
quick question: is the original MH worth it even though it has no online? i heard a lot of the good armor + weapons were only available online, and my local game store has it for $25. i just want to play as much MH as possible
>trap and flashbomb spamming because no diminishing returns
>swimming fish asshole and his hipchecks
>mega dash juice + DS is broken as fuck
>simple as shit AI made shit like tigrex a joke
>only like 5 moves per monster
>literal pallet swap monsters with nothing new just to pad out the game
Personally I stay under him. He doesn't really have any attacks that can deal with someone hugging his dick. Worst case he trips over you trying to re-position, and that's like zero damage compared to anything else he can do while you're anywhere else.
Another advantage is that if you're behind him, it's a lot easier for him to turn around and put you in front of him. If you're directly under him, it takes him more time to get away and re-orient giving you time to keep your ground. He also buckles really easily to successive attacks, and that coupled with the virus buffs mean he's a monster that heavily rewards aggression on your part.
I haven't used bows in 4U, but since you can revert the controls back to how they used to be, it shouldn't be hard at all. Charge while running around by holding X (similar to a hammer's playstyle), hold R and use the left d-pad to aim when you're ready to take a shot. No issue taking your hand off the stick to aim since you should plant while aiming anyway.
>mfw I did the whole mission in less than 5 minutes on my first try
git gud and
TRANSPORT PRO WITH FOOD BUFFS
First MH game for me, holy crap I'm really enjoying the Felynes more than I should. The tiny little armors and weapons, the noises, the cat puns, the little tanks and rockets, the overly dramatic flying animation they do when they get hit.
I JUST WANT TO FIGHT CTHULHU AGAIN
Are there more monster variations of this picture? I
likethem very much
What happens to the monster after it's captured?
They pretty much get declawed/defanged and put into the arena
>Need to get one more Ebonshell+ to help make my blast sword
>Hunt five Brachydios
>Not a single ebonshell, despite breaking everything every time.
The desire sensor is just fucking with me at this point.
Does anyone have any dual blade tips?
I've watched a few tutorials but are there any other things to keep in mind. I've only used ranged classes until now and decided to make melee gear and fight emerald congala first. I got kind of rekt.
Any skills or strategies to keep in mind?
I mained GS since the first game, then added LS and SnS all the way up to now. I literally can't into lance or gunlance, which my boyfriend adores.
CB is my new weaponfu though, although I still can't get the hang of guardpointing and I'm still not sure what Elemental Phial is good for, I've been upgrading the Dear Lutemis path and I'm working on the Guardsqual path as well in case they turn into decent weapons later on.
The ONLY way to get them is as quest rewards from fishing quests. And not even the one that only asks for S.Goldenfishes, the ones that require rare shit or account fishes. I have NO IDEA why they're so rare. On the plus side they're only used for a gimmicky line of longswords and ShotPlus 2 gems.
Elemental phial is for those monsters that happen to take more damage from elemental damage than they do from cutting damage. There's one or two of them. Fatalis takes major damage from dragon for example, and a mostly dragon damage weapon does wonders to him. Gravios and water damage isn't bad either
I'm honestly considering changing my mount message to this to fuck with people.
Speaking of which, what do YOU say when
>Mounting a monster
>Setting a bomb
>Hit with Sleep/Snow
>FastCharge+2 No Slot
I just one +3 + slot, grinding charms is so suffering.
>hurr run around monster
>durr he left opening
>retard smash for thousands of damage
literally the scrubbiest weapon in the game, lower skill ceiling than fucking shitter blade
So I just unlocked the possibility to use every rage crystal type and three charms (quality don't matter) to create an array of new charms. could be two, but I already had 4 new charms waiting for me after the dude was done. However, I've only seen "Old Charms" as the best output. Should I play some RNG lottery here or should I save my charms? Can the better charm types (Rarity 8 and up) even be created with this dude or are they mining-only?
Honestly, for my money, I go with Impact Phials all the way. KOing a monster in one well-placed Super AED feels amazing.
>>Mounting a monster
Shhhh....only dreams now....
This is my fetish.
>>Setting a bomb
>>Hit with Sleep/Snow
AH S**T MY EYES!!
Those fire herbs kicked in.
2 days from retirement...
Cheesy, but it makes me grin every time.
Still more than possible with element phials.
>Soloing Los with Permanence
>got him on the ropes, toppled him, whaling on him

Quick, hit me!
Look at the pretty stars!
it's always been weird to me how using more than one social website is considered an insult on 4chan, especially when everyone knows that at least 80% of the posters here also frequent reddit.
like what does it even meme?
not him but I go there. Usually for solid information and news. I treat /v/ more as a "random" video game board with fast, easy posting to get some trolling done in the day, or just some inconsequential opinions
Ludroth Cap (Gunner), Loc Lac Shawl, Gypceros Gloves, Kut Ku Faulds, Loc Lac Boots.
Transporter and swiftness gems.
Dairy and fish, steamed.
Every transport mission is cake. Just don't get hit.
Your daily reminder that you should pirate MGSV:TPP
you always show up and imply that everyone browses reddit because you do, despite every single person always telling you they don't.
to add on to that, the chain of "what's your texts for so and so" wouldn't work on reddit at all, but it's great for monhun threads on /v/
also in this category: which wyvern wud u fugg + corresponding pictures
>not using 4chins AND reddit

Who /fa/shonista here?
wait, why? my
friendsent me an text earlier regarding mgs v on PC but I didn't read it because I was driving in my car. what happened? it's the price, isn't it? Is kojima charging console-tier for this on PC aswell?
When the monster is down where should I be as a GL user? Should I try to Wyvern fire the tail to help my GS or SA tail carvers? Or should I just be hitting torso while hammer hits the head?
That's really cool guys!! I'm glad people are starting to be more accepting around here XD Would you guys wanna play Monster Hunter together sometime? :D
I'd totally be down for fashion hunter but I'm honestly too bad for it. I just need the defense a high armor rating gives. Feels
>I saw this on Jackass!
>default, might change it to BOOOOOMB
sure that's what we're here for, but you can drop the retarded smiley / ironic posting shtick. Let's play monhun and don't give a fuck when people visit websites and communities you apparently don't like.
so now open up that hall, I'm down to hunt some shit
Wyvern fire in the face!!
Try my 7* Shaggy urgent four times online, they all cart within five minutes.
Do it on my own in toilet paper gunner armour in 11mins. I did cart once though, I misread the map layout and pinned myself into a combo.
Was still a vast improvement on my attempts with online though.
Also, I'm free to help out with Black Gravios urgents in a while. Still want a Medulla for something and it is a piss easy monster for gunners.
So I think I just figured something out.
I already knew that impact and cutting weapons have different sweet spots on a monster, but is it possible that even in the cutting weapon class there's different sweet spots for different weapons? I just noticed, when I tried SnS for the first time that SnS, as a low reach weapon, is getting off great hits onto monsters feet most of the time. while switch axe and LS have the body/wings with that sweet spot slowdown
is this correct or am I imagining things?
The long type wyvernsfire is the king of breaking parts, hammers are only good for KO's and in my 140 hours of playing, I've never seen a single hammer user do it.
that's literally the only time i've said anything related to reddit on /v/
how can i go back when i'm already there? and here? and many other websites because tabs exist and i'm capable of reading comments and opinions of other people and groups without worrying that it will change my personality.
