/mhg/ is full of cowards edition
Hey /v/. I'm in a room waiting for 1-2 more to help with 7* 2 golden rajang, 2 deviljho, and fatalis.
2 slots open
I've met my first wall with akantor, but I won't stop, I'm gonna give you that courage Cowardly Palico.
dont you DARE even mention the existence of other games you piece of shit
i dont, because why would i? monster hunter demands a lot of time, unless you rush off to g rank and ignore mh teams hard work. im only hr3 yet im 50 hours in. taking my sweet time. playing another monster hunter on the side would leave me with no life to live. besides the minute differences would fuck you over. getting used to the hit boxes of one game, then playing another which will have different hit boxes
where the fuck is the link armor. is it in the episodic quest thing. which dlc gives you the materials
Yes, really, the guy is ridiculously huge so it fucks with my ability to see, his tail swipe hits pretty far and hard as well.
Hi, I'm new to the series and only casually play this between my other hobbies, I assume 80 hours at hr7 is crap right?
Anyway, how many more hr's until I hit the g ranks or are they something else?
And I'm a hammer user, tell me, should I be more concerned by the hammer's rare rating or the outright damage output, using an rare5 hammer that does 1000+ damage, honestly forgot the name but aiming for a high rating poison hammer, in its current state its 884 damage but the next one just needs a shitload of cash I currently lack right now.
And finally, WHEN should armor be updated, using gravious...U i think armor (stuff from black gravios) and i buffed it up with armor spheres so now it needs I THINK mega armor sphere's or some shit now, can I keep using this (considering the fact most battles now don't have me fighting water based monsters now) or should I just farm a badass monster at every hr rank jump?
Yes I check the wiki but I don't see any recommendations for when to update, I mostly focus on hammer updates and that's when possible money wise.
Also 3ds is charging in peace so that's why my info is sketchy as fuck, feel free to ignore.
He's slow as fuck.The only thing that can hit you is its roar the first time you see it. I've killed him under 10minutes with demolition DB.
I had more trouble with Teo. Fuck you Teostra with your bullshit hitboxes.
what the hell does rareness matter man come on. slow weapons do better with raw damage. special attacks like poison or whatever are better for quick weapons like dual blades. and some, SOME armors can be upgraded to match g rank stuff. i dont know which though. and what the hell does you not fighting water monsters have to do with no longer using that armor. gravios is weak to water. were you using that armor as water defense or something?
Rareness is a negligible aspect of the weapon
More Damage = Better
what I find myself doing is updating Armor for every level.
1 Armor set for Low Rank
Immediately ditch Low Rank armor and farm High Rank armor
When reaching G rank same thing.
After you get your base G rank armor, climb the ranks into at least G3, then the min max way to go about things is to find an armor combination (not necessarily a whole set) that'll get you the skills you want.
Weapons should be upgraded every time it is possible.
>he's slow as fuck
Like it matters, considering you can't even read it's tells half the time the first couple of attempts because he's just so damn big. You can't disregard the tail either, that thing has a HUGE radius and the only way to dodge it is if you were at a decent enough spot to read the tell or roll under him, which sometimes you just can't do if you're in mid-swing. Also, be aware this is my first encounter with such a large monster, so obviously it'll take me some tries to get used to him and fully know his moveset.
Games like borderlands have taught me that rareness usually means its special properties can make up for lack of sheer damage, but that's irrelevant.
And thankfully not, what I need is a mostly one stop shop, considering the armor is ONLY weak to water, and most of my fights don't worry about that element too much (got a...that shark thing's armor as a backup, though much weaker because its stock) I thought I might as well stick with it for a bit.
That makes sense, seeing how hammers hit less often meaning less chances to inflict a status unless I do the charge spin which I don't always hit off...
Ok so damage is the point, and find and worry about a decent set for each tier rank rather than keep switching, right?
And I take it I should (once into g) mix my sets for balance, though I miss out on the bonuses...
But I could have multiple (later on) and just switch, I swear that item set option is amazing, being able to just switch EVERYTHING out rather than one by one.
Anyone care to help me rank up?
I started HR 5 awhile ago and I want to finish it with people.
This thread is pretty dead, i'm surprised honestly.
>be hammer main(know how to use other weapons, but what to use hammer until i get to g-rank to branch out again), using the motherfucking rocket drill ever since i've been able to make it
>can only make two of Sergio's weapons, the hammer or the bow
>on my current armor set, the hammer would give me white sharpness, but i'll be losing AuXL due to no second weapon slot
I don't really have a problem with using wethstones with hammer since it doesn't lose sharpness too fast, so i guess i'll just make the bow.
Heh, while I am aware having seen (and own) the japanese transformers series, supergod master force, I have reasons for naming it this...

>I like optimus over ginrai

The funniest part is I've used this at /m/ so much and no one has said a damn thing.
I'm /m/uch disappointed with them now, thank you for not only lowering my standards in 4chan but in mecha lovers

Thank you MH4U, for being so great.
You guys aren't so bad either.
Newfreind to MH here. I rolled a second character with the HBG, but I feel like the damage is less than satisfactory. What HBG would you recommend I start building in prep for G-Rank. Atm I am using the Nesc one.
Do people still hate the charge blade? I've been using it recently and it's actually pretty enjoyable weapon to use. Or is the issue with new players, they don't realize you can use it's burst mode for dat extra damage?
You mix sets to get skills.
like for example
a hat has +4 attack
a torso from the same set has +6 attack
having the set would give you the +10 attack skill.
But if you mix and match for example
Hat has +4 attack
Torso has +6 defense
then gem up +6 Attack and +4 defense to get both +10 attack and defense.
Like try to find the combination that'll give you the most useful skills.
Also when looking at damage, remember that sharpness levels are a multiplier.
So it can happen that although a weapon may be dealing huge raw damage, but it's sharpness is at the yellow, it's doing around 0.75 its listed damage.
as opposed to a weapon with not so great raw damage but has blue sharpness will do around 1.5 times its listed damage.
This is only an example, the exact numbers for the multipliers I actually do not know but you get the idea.
I thought that bonus only came if you had the whole set as an incentive to have it complete, didn't think it'd work if you only had bits and pieces
The sharpness I'm aware and my current doesn't hit blue so I really need to push for that.
...while on the subject, I read some stuff about +1 sharpness, tell me how do I get that, I want to get the most from my weapons, don't want to waste the final hammer trees
I went for the Wracking Grismase line (currently at Striped Striker) with the gore/ceadeus armor for +1 sharpness. One of the highest raw and white sharpness (plus slime with awaken) Also, don't use the spinning attack, prioritize golf swing and super pound
I've been lucky that all the CB users don't trip anyone up, actually haven't encountered that many but I see IG users fucking everywhere tripping everyone up about as often as LS users
Just did my first Kushala fight.
>that fucking "nothing personnel, kid" attack by the ace commander after the flash bomb
I usually use the swing so I can then move from 3 hits to the standard standing 3 hits, but if super pound does more damage than that I see why not.
...right, again I'm new to the series, ay chance I can get an explanation to handicraft?
Nothing beats the feeling when you're charging a GS and right before you're about to bust a nut, an IG user comes flying and trips you.
Ignore that request on handicraft, turns out its a jewel (that I should be able to make) and now I just need to find that armor set.
I find it odd I have to wear a particular set for it but I did the same thing in skyrim, just that I was able to control what does what
Golf swing > super pound > first X pound in terms of damage. Spinning attack does little damage and has a lot of recovery frames, although you can end with a golf swing between the 4th and 6th spin.
Watch this if you have any doubt
Handicraft gives sharpness +1
Edgemaster, which gives Honed blade skill, grants sharpness +1 and attack up large
Both have only 1 tier, at 10. You have to reach that number between all the armor pieces and it activates.
Low rank [helm/torso/gloves/waist/boots] Ceadeus/Gore/Ceadeus/Gore/Tetsucabra (or anything with Torso Up on boots) grants Handicraft and +7 Sharpener, which you can get to +10 with 3 gems (armor set has exactly 3 slots)
>not using felyne feet
i learned that the hard way
fuck IG users and their spam-combos
their the new long swordsfags
fuck em i say
also can anyone explain why ziggy does a 360 neck spin whenever you encounter him in a hunt? i cant grasp why
The way skills work in MH is that you get a certain skill bonus from a piece of equipment like for example
Hat with +4 Attack
the attack bonus does not activate until it hits 10
so wearing a hat with attack +4 does nothing
Wearing a hat with attack + 4 and 2 gems each with +3 attack will have a total of +10 attack which activates "Attack (S)" buff.
Usually in a set these numbers add up enough to activate a skill but in G rank you want to put fragments to activate as many skills as you can and fill in the gaps with gems.

You niggas sure do over-hype things.
But, it's not even REMOTELY difficult. I went in with the Seregios' IG and had no trouble, and just to see if it was any worse with something like a GS, I tried that out as well. It's really not all that difficult to fight.
>Normies making fun of your hunter rank and G-rank
Atleast I'll have fun with the battlequarters
Is Shah Dalamadur actually any different?
The gang's all here
Is this set worth keeping or should I tri something else?
I kinda want a good Impact CB set or elemental is fine too
>Thinking you're cool
>OP end of high rank weapon
The Seregios quest comes BEFORE the Black Gravios quest you absolute pleb.
I'll protect you from the normies if you suck my cock
>mfw I realize it's "Timeworn" charm and not "Timeworm" charm.
Not the same guy but I just played it like a Rathian or Rathalos fight of just popping in hitting and running the hell out. A lot of the times I guess I got lucky with the Hunting Horn dance magically helping me avoid stuff.
people hate every weapon that can trip up their level 3 great sword charge
i get tons of shit for using sa despite the fact i always go away from people when the monster is downed. some people just walk up to me anyway and go "STOP TRIPPING ME!"
