The vast majority of Third Gen exclusive monsters aren't in 4U, aside from Deviljho, Brachydios, and Zinogre.
>>
>>283805430

if 3u is the game that focused more on its on monsters while leaving out gen 1 and 2 monsters

then 4u is the opposite, fuckng over gen 3 monsters while giving old favorites some love again while having a taste of new shit

The only carryovers from gen 3 besides small monsters was brach, zin, the joe and for what ever reason great douche jaggi and the rabbit

They're wearing it because of the handicraft and challenger skills. Also has decent enough Def to keep you alive for the early part of HR. So people aren't using it for looks.

>>283802186

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?
>>
>>283806039
You don't get to make decorations until you hit Harth.

Then you need to go mining to get Aquaglow and Sunspire jewels.
>>
>>283806039

You'll be able to forge decorations once you reach the second town.
>>
>>283806392
No, not possible. Rushing blade slash or overhead axe smash, those are your only options for draw attacks.
>>
>>283806039
In old games youd craft them with the the blacksmith using monster parts, later games then required a gem.

...though i either didnt notice this as an option or im retarded and didnt pay attention

which reminds me,please tell me 4u doesnt have 3u's stupid talisman table again

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?
>>
>>283806498

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.
>>
>get to Shagaru Magala without excessive problems

Have I gotten too cocky, or are the High Rank monsters super annoying? I just beat Daimyo Hermicrab and Purple Gypceros and they both were so fucking obnoxious.

It has charm tables still, but it's not as retarded as 3U's. 3U's charm tables being fixed on character creation was a bug they just never patched out, and wasn't intended to be that way.

It's back to the P3rd system of switching tables every time you start the whole game.

>Gigginox not in 4U

Good, fuck that double asshole guy.
>>
>>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.

>>283807535
More fun to fight than Khezu.
>>
>>283807372
You again? Lol, scrub.
Play the damn game, man. TAKE THE ADVICE OF /MHG/ AND PLAY IT!
>>
>>283807373
Exhaust phials are okay if you like to tire out monsters, but not useful at all for actually knocking them out.

Status/Dragon phials which mean that you only get that status/element when in sword mode are typically balls.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

I'm upgrading the starting one and it's going great. You can upgrade it twice before you even go to Harth and then with hunter rank 2 you can bring it up again

>>283816367
It's gonna take a while before you can make new charge blades. If you want some variety craft other weapons like I did.

I don't want variety, I just want a stronger weapon.

Alright, I'll upgrade it then. I think I gotta get some malachite first.

No. If he's spamming mount he's not contributing to the team properly. Not to mention it's not fun to watch him mash X.
>>
>>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.

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?
>>
>>283817042
I managed to get 3 rubies and 2 plates before I got a single AzRath tail in 3U. I was both amazed and angry at the same time because I just wanted a fucking tail
>>
>>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.

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

How lucky is this? Think I'm going to save it for his CB line.
>>
>>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.

In 3 runs I got 4 plates, and people in /mhg/ are always mentioning that they got a plate without trying, so something must be fishy with his drop rates

>>283820893
You can try the demo for 4U and see how you get on. It was only really essential for the water parts in 3U, and there aren't any in this one.
>>
>>283819938
Wow I had no idea I could charge it up
Is it hold down R and X?
Or hold down R and tap x after charged?
I can't play atm otherwise I would just test it
>>
>>283820893
It's not bad, the 3u demo was a TERRIBLE taste of the game though.
Both monsters were bad for newcomers really.

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?
>>
>tfw have achieved LR Sharpness +1 and Speed Sharpener
Awyis. Dat fuckin' White Sharpness Gore GS.
>>
>>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.
>>
>>283812024
Not only that, but her hand is twist around to pull the trigger.
>>
>>283821815
Now you can almost consider blocking with it maybe.
>>
>>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.

That sounds bitchin man.
I'm gonna be able to get buffs so much faster now.
>>
>>283819694
Not terribly. 5% body carve, 4% tail carve, 3% head wound reward, 2% from shinies. Tipping the Scales has a shit tonne of 1% chances of getting a plate in the reward screen at that.

Gore plates aren't rare in the slightest.

Not counting shinies and quest rewards, but counting tail carves, there's something like an 18.5% chance of getting a plate from any given quest
>>
>>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.
>>
>>283822416
Yup, an IG kept up fairly well with red buffs is monstrous to the point where spamming the vault attack to try for mounts is wasteful, it's buffed attack combos are intense.
>>
>>283822567
Wait, shit. After adding in the head wound reward it's just about 20% per quest if you smash his face in (head =/= feelers, by the way) and carve the tail.

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
>>
>>283822149
If you've worn it down a bit you'll lose two sharpness levels in a row from blocking certain monster combos. It was pretty funny.
>>
>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.

Tips for frenzy Brachy with SnS?

>>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
>Can that even be done
Well in the demo I got an 11 minute Tetsucabra run with bug only and I'm sure I could do even better.

Certainly it would be easier versus some monsters than others.
>>
>>283824783

Boss monster corpses hang around for over a minute after death. So after you scoop up your carves just have a quick study session.

When you can get into super saiyan in under a minute of confronting a monster then that fight is going to be VERY fast.
>>
>>283824783
Pretty sure he's referring only to large monsters, which don't disappear whether or not you carve them on a quest. Even in gatherings they don't disappear until a little while later.

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.
