>>283802486 Didn't see everyone running in Lagi armor in Tri even though it was flagship armor with good skills. Half the people wear Magala armor is because of how dark and brooding it looks like. It has shit skills too.
>repel Gore and shit without any trouble >get rekt my first time actually hunting Gore, took me 28 minutes >the other few times I had to fight him I didn't fare much better >reach Shagaru Magala >think it's going to be hard >stupidly easier
Huh.I guess it was because of the area we fight him in, easy to maneuver.
Is there a way to use the full charge attack on Charge blade when drawing your weapon? I'm wondering so then I can maybe use my greatsword Critdraw set with it, since that would be pretty damn good for damage, right?
So I ordered the ultimate edition from Gamestop and the order closed and supposedly shipped. It's been a week and nothing. I tried the tracking number to see if I could glean any information on where it is but the post office's site says there is no package with that number. To be fair, I used a PO Box and Gamestop's email said there would be no tracking if I used a US PO Box.
So the question, should I be concerned yet or should I just man up and learn patience?
Aw that's a bit sad. Then Critdraw is worthless on it. I'm trying to think of what armor skills work well with it since I'm been using GS up to halfway through High rank, but diablos armor is a bit squishy so everything hits me like a truck and some monsters just tag you in your openings too quickly with GS, even to defend.
>>283802186 this game fucking blows i don't understand how you retards love this so much the only decently fun part of the game is actually huntan shit but why are there so many fucking SHIT ingredient quests better off playing older games in the series because this shit barely offers anything new fuckin autists >homestuck banner for 4chan fucking why
>>283806982 That depends on what mode you see yourself using more, really, as well as the offered raw/element values.
Personally I don't like using Sword Mode much as the primary means of attack and will switch back and forth depending on whether the monster is downed or exhausted. The mobility and reach on Axe Mode is my jam, so I don't mind if I get element phials, seeing as that basically means that it turns Phial Burst from decent to fucking ridiculous and I DO love using that move.
A lot of people will tell you to focus on power phials since it makes sword mode stronger than axe mode in the raw department, which is true. But if that element phial axe has higher raw value period, then the difference is going to be down to your play style.
>>283807749 Critical Brachydios, I suppose, although it's just a new variant for an old monster.
>wut You know how when you get the Frenzy Virus that, if you're aggressive enough, you can turn it from a potential debuff into an affinity boost?
Apex Monsters are like that, but for monsters. Instead of the virus taking control of them, they're aggressive enough to achieve symbiosis and use it for themselves. They're shit tonnes stronger and faster than their frenzied versions and in many cases will gain new moves and borrow moves from their subspecies and variants despite not being capable of them before. Not to mention that even on purple sharpness, with Mind's Eye/ESP, you can bounce on a number of their hitzones regardless.
>Been playing since FU >Never ever touched bowguns because 'lol ranged' >Decided to give HBG a try against the dual frenzy kezu quest >Not a single scratch on me, kezu's dropping like flies with every part broken Is this love at first sight?
>khezu >bull shit head whip >bullshit jump >bullshit anything >on the floor, trying to recover >no i frames while recovering >fucker uses his electric floor what ever attack >try to do an oh shit dive >lol nope >khezu has no eyes so mechanics stay the same as if there was no big monster >just do a regular dive >the hunter has fainted
Khezu scared the shit out of me back then. The only thing giggi had was his poison bullshit. With out poison, bale giggi was a push over
>>283808921 Its why you need to go through the single player story mode before tackling Apex monsters online, because the single player quests eventually give you an item that lets you negate bounce on Apex monsters, but only for a short time, and the item has a cooldown.
>>283806982 God damn man, seeing stills of some things lets me see exactly how much detail they put into the game. The hunter isn't just holding the Swaxe out, she has it tucked under her arm, twisting her wrist around it, to support the large weapon while it's charging up. You can say all you want about the graphics, but Monster Hunter has incredible detail on the animations and movements of the players and the monsters.
Just beat Shaggy Magala. I was expecting a hard fight, instead it had very predictable moves. Fight still took like 15 minutes. Had more trouble with Gore, which was pretty easy too. Both were still wery fun fights.
I really love the insect glaive But I feel like I'm gimping myself by using it Because it feels like I'm playing on easy mode Guaranteed mount, dodge attacks for 30 seconds, mount again, dodge some more, mount again, I win Should I stop using it and git gud with another weapon? This is my first monster hunter game I like almost every weapon, but I can't clear tough bosses with anything other than IG I found a relic Switch Axe with tons more damage than anything I can craft Maybe I'll try that
>>283815621 >This is my first monster hunter game >I really love the insect glaive >Guaranteed mount, dodge attacks for 30 seconds, mount again, dodge some more, mount again, I win I hate you. IG isn't about spamming Mount. If you do that near my online, I'll remove you from my room.
>>283815782 >they really fucked it up with making it play clunkier than playing on land. That's the whole fucking point of underwater. It's slow and movement is now in three directions. If you didn't play slowly underwtaer it would be fucking moronic. Have you ever tried to play something simple like Volleyball in a swimming pool? Shit's impossible with water. You move in slo-mo.
>>283815943 I'm waiting to unlock handicraft decorations. Fire Res Down is not too bad, and I can basically chew through anything in minutes with that + the gore GS right now, it just disappointed after seeing how hyped the monster was.
>>283816341 The explosions are easy to dodge Move towards the mouth as he winds up while not in Frenzy mode If you're around his head area while he's in Frenzy Mode, you can roll into him and avoid the explosion. Same thing with his giant stomp attack
>>283815950 To be fair I only played 3U on 3DS so yeah, I'm biased against it. I still feel it was handled poorly though. I can understand moving slow in water because of everything weighing you down but I never had any fun with it since I couldn't keep up with the speed of monsters that preferred being in water. I had less thrills underwater and felt it was more like a chore.
It sucks though because I really liked how Leviathans looked.
>>283815961 >If you do that near my online, I'll remove you from my room I think in LR, it's better to let them do what they want, since there's so many new players there and it's easy enough regardless. Give them some tips after the hunt if they need it.
If they haven't learned better by mid-HR/G-Rank, though, fuck 'em.
>>283815961 I don't do that online and go fuck yourself
When online I use a hammer if no one else is so that I can help the team by stunning the monster. Otherwise I pick glaive and aim for weak spots. The few times I've played online people seem to mount the monster pretty often so I didn't see any point in spamming it.
>>283816637 You saying just continue using the IG because I love it but don't spam mount like I do? That makes perfect sense Question: do certain parts (limbs, head, chest) of boss monsters determine what color essence the insect will absorb? Do I need to shoot the boss in the right spot to get the buffs I want?
>>283817234 That's what I'm saying yes. And yes you're right, there's a little variation but head is red, appendages are orange, general mass is white and tails/extra limbs are green. Like I said there's variation to this, like when the monster is some wacky fucker that doesn't have legs, the Najarala's tail for instance is also red at the tip, along with it's head.
>>283817820 Ok cool. Thanks anon. If I don't use a pheromone shot the insect will just absorb a random color? Or will he just attack the monster without absorbing anything? I find myself having to shoot the insect out like 2-3 times before a circle will fill in
>mfw the strategy for Magala is literally "MAN THE FUCK UP" >oh he's about to do some crazy scatter shot shit for half your life and make shit explode to levels that would make Osama jealous? >get up in his fucking grill you bitch >oh you have an unknown disease >HIT HIM >HIT HIM IN THE FACE UNTIL IT BECOMES A BUFF >THEN HIT HIM WITH IT
>>283819446 He'll absorb the essence based on the location he hits the monster whether or not you use the pheromone, the pheromone shot just acts as a beacon that it homes towards. It can be a little annoying to use, because it doesn't change course mid-air so whether it's really worth it to take the time and use pheromone shots mid-fight, or just wing it and free-aim the bug at it's face is up to you. It's usually a decent idea to charge up the drill attack and get close if possible since then even if the bug misses you're hitting it in the face yourself.
>>283818535 It's not helpful if it's just you jerking off and wasting time with mount attempts and jump attacks. Mount if and when it WORKS but you had better be slashing shit.
>>283816872 >Give them some tips after the hunt if they need it. They're just gonna bitch. Retards think "mounting" is like a backstab or a headshot and spend too much time fishing for it. Snipers are actually an apt comparison in this situation. A skill sniper does body AND headshots as appropriate. IG players should do the same and combo stuff when they can mount when they can't combo or when a monster is angry.
>>283820014 >spend too much time fishing for it Except IG users don't have to "fish" for the perfect moment to activate a mount After a mount everyone knows to combo for a while, but I don't see why mounting is so terrible when it can be done What about mounting upsets you so much buddy? Is it because when the monster falls down you feel like the challenge is gone and your penis shrinks?
>>283821280 Hold down R+X with weapon drawn, after a while it'll ping and you can do a multi-hit slashing attack with your glaive whilst your insect flies out extra-fast. It's really good for stuff like Magala who are really, really intent on getting close range and don't like staying still.
>>283820893 The only annoying thing is the camera is controlled by the touch screen. You will get used to it really quick. If you have it positioned at the top, hitting up on the touch screen dpad can be a bit of a bitch since the top of the touch screen doesn't register as well as the rest. If you have it at the bottom, the same is probably true for hitting down.
>>283821736 >Except IG users don't have to "fish" for the perfect moment to activate a mount Yes they do. They spend time runnign around waiting for a chance to do a pole vault. >What about mounting upsets you so much buddy? I see retards who do nothing but fish for it. I don't think I've even seen somebody use their Kinsect or getting properly buffed up. They just play "Monster Mounter" and waste time. Additionally, it's not fun watching somebody jerk off ontop of the monster more than 3 times per hunt.
After you kill a monster you can still till hit it with the essence tracker. If you are a big nerd like me you can study a dead monster after carving to see where about the main buffs are on the monster so you know for future fights.
I just start a fight then tag the 3 parts and just go ham
>tfw plan to make at least ONE insect glaive for 100% bug hunts solo
I'm wondering if I should go with the Speed+/Power+ bug that never bounces ever, or the Speed+/Stamina+ type bug that can attack forever and charges pretty much instantly when holding R+X once it returns.
Honestly I would have preferred speed+power with instant charging, but I suppose them's the breaks when you go Full Bugmaster.
>>283822916 Oh damn I can't wait to practice this Friday night >>283823094 After carving they disappear though. Do bosses disappear if you don't carve them? Little monster do all the time and it pisses me off >>283822748 Well to me it seems like if I have time to combo a monster then I have time to pole vault and mount them. I don't play like that online because I read that excessive mounting is rude for some reason. I don't see the big deal myself, since mounting nets like a ten second stun. If not mounting is what makes me a good teammate though, then I don't mind at all I'm going to practice no mount boss fights using the strategies anons above recommended >>283823512 You mean doing entire hunts without doing any non insect damage? Can that even be done? The insect does super low damage doesn't it? Will you be using drill attack? If you hit them with the charge up glaive won't that defeat the purpose of bug only?
>>283824783 >Well to me it seems like if I have time to combo a monster then I have time to pole vault and mount them. People who always choose to mount instead of attack it normally are shitters. >I don't see the big deal myself, since mounting nets like a ten second stun. And if you do nothing but that, you're bringing us down. I don't want to sit around and wait for your minigame to end over and over. You're not contributing properly unless you're using your weapon at full capacity. Mount spamming is for scrubs. Make sure to get buffs and combo that monster. >If not mounting is what makes me a good teammate though, then I don't mind at all It's not about NOT mounting, it's about moderation. Mount when it's mad. I'll praise you for that. Mount when you have a good opening, but please just use every aspect of your weapon. >I'm going to practice no mount boss fights using the strategies anons above recommended This might be wise. You'll learn lots.
