Is that it? This is your thread?

You work for the guild
You carve your fair share
They get the rest

You are a sad little man.
>>
I don't know what to make of mhx

the aerial and bushido styles just seem so much better all day everyday

but the game is just so much smoother, so much more varied in monster design
>>
>>323550412
They get too much for what they do.

All they do is tell you about quests. That shouldn't let them take 90% of a monster.
>>
>Monster has at least 8 talons
>You're lucky if you even get one

>You need monster eyelashes to make equipment.

>Monster has two clearly intact horns
>Lucky if you get one.

That's one thing I hate about MH. Carves should be a bit more reliable. The carve system is just a lazy way to force players to refight the same monster a dozen times, and artificially lengthen their playtime
>>
>>323551051
how do you join a guild? did it happen automatically when I played through because I skipped all the text.
>>
>>323550982
>aerial
Gimmicky shit, like IG was, but now available for all weapons.
>bushido
I must admit EZ mode dodges are kinda fun, but not all weapons can utilize the counter attack.
Great for Bow and Hammer, since you can charge an attack, and don't have to immediately hit the monster after the dodge.
I've heard it's good for DBs too, since they always just stuck right under the monster, but I can't vouch for that, since I don't play DBs all that much myself.
>>
>>323550982
>the aerial and bushido styles just seem so much better all day everyday
Aerial GS is the only aerial style that isn't outright worse than guild. Bushido is garbage most of the time too. Guild is best except for times when striker doesn't take away anything of importance, in which case you just get an extra HA.
>>

I lost track how many times I fought a zinogre and tigrex.

>MUH REALISM
Oh, c'mon. It's clearly not one of those cases, where insignificant shit like that matters.
You get to brawl with giant monsters, smash their skulls in and wear their skin as a trophy. It's FUN.
>>
>>323550982
this actually has a leveling system right? sounds like it's going to suck ass grinding
>>
>>323551363
No. MH series only has gear progression, no leveling. For example, you can use newbie armor and weapons if you want to play with someone who's just started, and this way you'll not be one shotting monsters.
>>
>>323551332
at least make it believable, rare drops I understand but when you wound a head and you don't get that jaw bone which has 1%chance of dropping for 30th time your gonna have to makes some changes.
>>
>>323551332

I'm honestly fine with only being allowed to carve what I can carry, but I should still get first dibs on the best parts.
>>
>>323551051
>All they do is tell you about quests
transportation, supplies, a way back home, they pay you.
>>
>>323551538
I saw a screen cap with monsters leveled respectivly, my assumptions was those were the levels you had to be to fight them.
>>
>>323551168
All hunters in MH games start as members of The Guild. Otherwise they would be poachers. Poachers very skilled at dragon slaying.
>>
>>323551686
That's MHO, a F2P MMO by Tencent.
MHX is a 3ds game
>>
>>323551686
No. This is a level of a quest, the higher the number, the tougher the monster is.
And while there is player progression in forms of Hunter Rank, it's not really the same as level, since your stats don't go up or anything, you just get access to tougher monsters.
>>
>>323551183
It being a gimmick doesn't make it any less OP

anyone who's ever fought a gogmazios knows how much of a difference a couple of mounts can make in a hunt
>>
>>323551597
You can always lie to yourself(doesn't excuse the mechanic though). I tell myself that the material has to be a certain quality and the monster I just killed has some kind of defect.

The claw it had was rotting away do it wasn't suitable. The jawbone was smashed when I fucked its face with my axe
>>
>>323551597
Please don't exaggerate, when you've done everything possible to boost your odds towards an item there's nothing lower than 10%, usually 20%

and that's the rarest of items
>>
>>323552446
IG was op not because it got free mounts (which got nerfed in X, you need to land much more jumps attacks now), but because of its ridiculously high motion values and buffs from the bug juices.
>>
Just downloaded X, which weapon should I use? Not GS or Lance, been using those since Freedom 2
>>
>>323552589
take around 2 attacks for the first mount and like 5 for the second, that's still god damn amazing in a team hunt, and even in singleplayer that many hits on the head is not to be frowned upon

IG has been nerfed in two ways in that regard, it's motion values have been slashed to shit and now everyone can do what made it special in 4U

IG has been slightly nerfed across the board, but nothing too drastic.
RIP CB.
>>
>>323552804
That one is easy. Poke balls don't have anything that "sucks in" a pokemon, the pokemon have to go into the ball.

I mean you could just put the pokemon in a sack then tell it you captured it, so it will go in willingly, but that seems like a lot of work.
>>
>>323552963
what game
>>
>>323551686
No, that's the difficoulty level of the quest. Monster variants level up every time you defeat them, getting hammer every time.
>>
>>323552804
They aren't unconcious, they are dead, but since you are a 10 years old kid you just assume "they are sleeping".

>>323553068
so when someone knocks out your pokemon you have to carry their corpses?

Well in that case, you should die in one hit, right?

yup then you bring them back through science!

WOW GREAT FUCKING GAME, SONYFAGS
>>
>>323553039
>>323552480
But you need to damage X part of the body and break it down if you want it to drop. What retarded shit is this.
>>
>>323553437
my mistake it was tigrex maw, when I looked it up I went to the mission "ear ache" and the ones lower were than that were 1% or non existant.
>>

>I have 10 tigrex mantles

>>323553479
it's Capcom but hey you tried
>>323553532
I do but still doesn't drop. it's rare but even fucking up his face doesn't get me the drop. I've been at it for weeks
>>
>>323553651
yeah, I thought 1% was completely jewish even by capcom standards

I don't know what the lowest possible drop in MH4U is but I'd make the assumption it's something like 2% + 2% + 2% + 3%
>>
>>323553651
>>323553437
Also these % are for each carve, of which you get three. There's also another formula for quest rewards.
>>
Any Heavy Bowgun users here? I picked it up a little while ago and I'm not exactly sure what I should build towards? What are some necessary skills? Should I even bother building weapons that have deviation? Seems pretty damn annoying. What are so good beginner bowguns to work toward?
>>
I really, really want to play X.

I really, really don't want to import a Japanese 3DS and the game in order to do so.

I also don't want to bother jailbreaking my only 3DS to bypass region locking. Thank you very much, Nintendo.
>>
>>323553849
yeah but still no drop, I've gotten pretty good at downing a brute tigrex though.
>>
>>323551051
Read the freaking novel your mongrel. Guild do more than just that.
>>
>>323553924
being a monkey is really depressing
>>
>>323553849
If we're going to be completely accurate

one of those percentages is for capture, which you can never have in conjunction with the carve chances
>>
in mh5, what if you had to not break parts in order to get certain drops?

Like, don't mess up his claws or you can't have those at the end because you fucking shattered them?

Not all drops, but maybe some certain rare stuff
>>
>>323553924
You only need a homebrew launcher that it's a REALLY light mod on your 3DS to be able to play any gamecart without region lock. Literally no excuse.
>>
>>323551159
Well if the horns are still intact that's your problem. You are supposed to break them off dude

Don't give me that shit about a G version. This is a spinoff. Do you pine to play monhun online?
>>
>>323554132

That would honestly make more sense than "break this monster part for a better chance of getting it"
>>
>>323554059
Tell me something I don't know.
>>
>>323554132
It would be less interesting because you'd have people have to keep on hitting the back legs of a monster to get all its cool stuff

the current breaking mechanism is an incentive for people to aim for specific parts and makes the fight more dynamic

Except they cover supplies, travel, and let's not forget, PAY YOU upon delivery.
>>
>>323554265
but it'd be more of a punishment mechanic. Like maybe a rare part would be from an undamaged back leg, or something else that's really safe to hit that you'd have to consciously avoid now
>>
>>323554012
what novel you on about son
>>
>>323554132
I know that logically it doesn't make sense, but it's much more satisfying and rewarding from a gameplay perspective the other way around, not to mention failing to not damage a part would probably be the most frustrating thing.

Capturing monsters already partially does what you're thinking in a sensible way: you need to be careful and attentive, but not to frustrating degrees.
>>
>>323554137
Does not caring count as an excuse?

>>323554195
Am I not allowed to enjoy a simple Monster Hunter, regardless of its design choices? It looks fun. I'm just getting tired of 4U and need something new.
>>
>>323550412
I know I'm overthinking it, but I've always wondered the in-universe explanation for when/why the Guild sometimes decides to give you rare shit and sometimes they don't.

>Okay, well this time we'll let you have that Rath Mantle, I guess.

Head canon is just you beat the shit out of these monsters, and sometimes things get damaged to the point they aren't usable or salvageable.
>>
>>323554012
not him but link or name of said book?
>>
>>323551159
They changed the crafting in system in MHX. A lot of the times now instead of needing a specific part, you just needs a certain amount of "points" from that monster. Each carve gives a certain amount of points, with the rarer carves giving more.
>>
>>323554376
Not hitting the head is a punishment mechanic, you just made the game easier by inverting what the player has to do
>>
Piracy is gonna bring in a lot of newfags. Myself included.
>>
>>323554472
Well, kinda sorta

it uses both systems at once
a weapon upgrade usually requires x of this material, and y of that material
but then it also requires z of "this group of materials", where you get to choose what you use for the weapon
>>
>>323554424
>I really, really want to play mhx

>a game where you have fight magical massive monsters with swords

>perfectly fine

>cant cut tail off after death for gameplay reasons

>WTF SO UNREALISTIC

kill yourself
>>
I guess since this is the unofficial MH thread I'll ask;

How come sometimes a weapon will have a status or element applied to it, but the status/element damage is written in faded out lettering as though it doesn't apply?
>>
>>323554619
Clarifying: I don't care for modifying my consoles, because I have a bad habit of accidentally destroying them somehow.

You could give me the most idiot friendly modding guide to install that home brew and I'd still find a way to fuck it up.
>>
>>323554818
you need a skill to make that element/status actually work

switchaxes come with innate elemental awaken if their phial allows for it
>>
>>323554818
You need an armor skill called "awakening" in order to use that element.

In other words, that weapon is probably shit.
>>
why killing with dual blades takes so long?
>>
>>323555031
because dual blades are basically support with how low their motion values are

status or bust, assuming you're not playing mhx
>>
>>323554935
>>323554942
Okay thanks. I mostly play Hammer and SA based on what monster I'm fighting and I've noticed it a lot on SA when the weapon has a different kind of phial. I forgot Awakening exists. I tend not worry about it with Hammers since they're just about doing Big. Meaty. Damage.
>>
MHfags help me with my dilemma

I played MHFU a long fucking time offline and alone, it was my first MH game and I probably put 6-700 hours into it

Later I had the chance to play MHP3rd online with a friend, and somehow being able to kill things under 20 minutes with quite a lot of ease has just kind of killed the game for me

I thought playing with others would get some of the tedium out of the game for me - but instead whenever I play alone it just feels like I'm wasting my own time by doing it alone.

How do you feel about this?
Is playing alone the "main" game for some of you, or is everyone just cooping it erry day?
>>
>>323554812
>what is suspension of disbelief
back to middle school with you
>>
>>323551773
I want an spinoff game called Monster Poacher.
>>
>>323555358
Soloing is what I prefer; I usually just bang out online when I'm extremely bored or just want to raise my HR. Dropping monsters in a few minutes with a full team can be fun, but it makes it feel like such a grind.

>Welp here we go again guys, on the same Guild Map, fighting the same monster..."

1-Google "homebrew launcher"
2-Go first link
3-Download the starter pack and unzip it into your SD root
4-In the same site, open the "web browser" window and go to the site linked, there will be a QR code there
5-Scan it with your 3DS and visit the site that pops out. If nothing happens, touch the scroll thing in the upper left corner in the touch screen.
6-Activate "home hack" from the menu that pops out
7-Yer done familia, now every time you want the homebrew launcher you just have to hold the L button when you boot your 3DS.

>>323553924

>>323555507

Considering you want to make some armor and need to kill something several times, do you do that alone?
>>
>>323555507
I try to solo mostly when I play MH4U and that's why I still haven't reached G-rank and feel like I'm done with the game.
The ratio of game's challenge compared to my willingness to keep smashing my head against that challenge has turned into too much frustration for too little progress.
